Finding a great chiropractor is key for helping your body to correct trauma or years of damage from poor posture but it is also important for proactive care of your health. Take a look at the vast array of things chiropractic can help your body correct so you can live a healthy symptom-free life.
Very few treatments can ignite back pain and sciatica relief the way chiropractic can. The sciatic nerve runs from your hip down the length of your leg. When you develop sciatica that nerve becomes inflamed and sometimes impinged. It can cause shooting pains when you try and walk and in some cases even prevent you from being able to walk at all. Release the pressure, reduce the inflammation, restore those nerves to health and you will feel better. Chiropractic can help.
2. Headaches (migraine and tension)
Headaches are one of the most commonly treated and managed conditions chiropractors see. Over 230 peer-reviewed studied prove chiropractics efficiency at easing headaches. This is done naturally without the risks of long term drug therapy.
3. Neck and Back Pain
Chiropractic has shown higher satisfaction results than even physical therapy. This was measured over a 52-week course of treatment by the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics.
4. Neurological Issues
MRI scans reveal that cerebral spinal fluid and blood flow are increased after a chiropractic adjustment. Researchers are even obsessing that cerebellar invagination is being reversed and brain plaquing is diminishing. This could be a major step forward for MS patients. It is also showing promise for those living with epilepsy.
5. Blood Pressure
It has been shown that regular chiropractic treatments may hold the same effects as blood pressure lowering drug therapy. The effects of just one adjustment may last up to 6 months.
Doctors have found that chiropractic can help manage scoliosis without the traditional use of restrictive braces or possibly dangerous surgeries. In many cases, patients have experienced a 10 to 30% decrease in curvature with chiropractic alone.
7. Athletic Performance Enhancement
There is a reason so many professional athletes use chiropractors. Not only is it effective on pain based management but it also enhances functionality in everyday life as well as during sports. 50% of NFL teams use chiropractic for their players.
It can: Boost the immune system, enhance heart function, increase energy, decrease oxidative stress, and reduce inflammation. There is no downside.
