When you hear someone is going to a chiropractor, you likely think they’re seeking treatment for back pain. While chiropractic adjustments are beneficial for a variety of conditions that cause chronic back pain, these techniques can do so much more.
At Beeson Wellness Center, the skilled chiropractic team can address many other underlying causes of pain and limited mobility. Additionally, realigning your body can be incredibly helpful for rejuvenating your health and promoting your overall well-being.
Here are seven ways chiropractic adjustments can benefit you beyond treating back pain. They can help:
Bring headache relief
Chiropractic care is a highly effective treatment option for persistent headaches. Manual adjustments and other techniques can address migraine headaches or pain from day-to-day tension.
By using chiropractic treatments for your headache pain, you can decrease your reliance on pain relief medications and eliminate the downtime commonly associated with chronic tension or migraines.
Taking less medication is good for your overall health, reducing stress on your liver and reducing your risk for dependence on prescription pain drugs.
Lower blood pressure
Chiropractic techniques to realign the cervical, or upper, spine, have been shown to effectively lower blood pressure. Treatment focuses on the top bone of your spine, known as the atlas. The job of this bone is to protect the brainstem, through which the electrical signals of the rest of the body travel to ensure overall health and functionality.
By adjusting the spine, pressure is taken off the brainstem, opening the path for more efficient blood flow and reducing interference with the brain’s electrical signals, stabilizing many systems of your body, including your blood pressure.
Your immune system is made up of soft tissues, organs, and white blood cells that join forces to fight disease and keep you healthy. This system connects directly to your spine and any spinal misalignment can affect how your immune system functions.
Realigning the spinal column can reduce nerve compression and increase the functionality of your immune system. This ensures your body is ready and able to fight off infections, like colds and allergies.
If you have insomnia or general trouble falling or staying asleep, chiropractic care can alleviate the underlying cause of your struggles.
Many who experience difficulties getting quality sleep do so because of chronic pain, breathing issues, or anxiety. Manual adjustments to realign your spine can improve your blood circulation and help you relax.
The chiropractic team at Beeson Wellness Center can also recommend resources to improve the alignment of your body while you sleep to optimize your breathing and ensure you fall into a deeper, more restful sleep.
Anxiety symptoms can interfere with your daily routine, making it difficult to enjoy a high quality of life. While many need medications and psychological therapies to manage their anxiety, chiropractic care can also provide a sense of well-being and relaxation.
Through manual manipulations to realign the spine, chiropractic care can improve brain activity and rebalance your nervous system. Adjustments can also enhance your blood circulation and give you more energy to better cope with your anxiety symptoms.
Enhance athletic performance
If you enjoy participating in sports but want to boost your performance naturally, chiropractic care can help. Many professional athletes rely on routine chiropractic care to stay flexible, relieve muscle pain, and increase energy to perform optimally.
Chiropractic care to realign the body improves blood flow to your brain, reducing your risk for mental and physical stress. The skilled chiropractic team can also use techniques to reduce inflammation and improve joint functionality, while helping to reduce the risk of common sports-related injuries.
If chronic back pain or other types of persistent pain aren’t relieved with other therapies, chiropractic care may be an alternative treatment option before you resort to surgery.
With regular chiropractic care, the Beeson Wellness Center team can help you manage chronic pain and improve your functionality, so you can delay or even avoid surgery.
Chiropractic care is still a great choice for alleviating back and neck pain, but anyone seeking to improve their overall health and well-being can depend on customized chiropractic care from the compassionate team at Beeson Wellness Center.
