5 Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Chiropractor Stretching

Some estimates say that up to 85% of Americans suffer from neck or back pain. Many people turn to chiropractors for help. How do you know if seeing a chiropractor is right for you? In this article we will discuss five of the main health benefits of seeking chiropractic treatment.

Ease Back and Neck Pain

Chiropractic care can significantly alleviate back and neck pain. Chiropractors perform a non-invasive procedure known as a chiropractic adjustment. The pressure applied in an adjustment helps to correct joint restrictions in your back and neck which helps correct the stiffness and pain you may be experiencing.

Improve Quality of Sleep

Pain and tension from joint restrictions can cause poor quality of sleep. Regular adjustments ease pain and help increase relaxation, leading to better sleep. Some other causes of poor sleep could be your mattress, pillow, sleeping position, and poor posture. Following our needs-based examination we can help advise you on proper sleeping position and provide various stretches and exercises to help ensure sound quality of sleep.

Increased Range of Motion and Flexibility

Poor flexibility and range of motion can cause pain and impede on your daily activities. In extreme cases it can be a sign or cause of early disability. Chiropractic care can help maintain and improve your range of motion through chiropractic adjustments. Good flexibility is important to live a healthy lifestyle and maintain a high quality of life.

Correct Posture

Maintaining good posture not only is good in helping with back and neck pain, but it’s good for your mood, confidence, appearance, and general lifestyle. Having poor posture can cause pain, lower your quality of sleep, increase chance of injury, and impact your confidence and state of mind. We help our patients improve and maintain correct posture by conducting a thorough examination to find the root cause of the problem, performing a series of adjustments, massaging muscle tissues, and assigning exercises and stretches at home to ensure you are able to maintain correct posture in the long term.

Improve Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is a serious health concern that affects over 70 million Americans today. Studies have shown that chiropractic adjustments combined with physical exercise are just as effective in lowering blood pressure as most blood pressure medications, without exposing the body to potentially harmful side effects. If you or someone you know is suffering from high blood pressure it may be time to get a consultation from a chiropractor to see if they can help.
