Read on for 10 powerful benefits of chiropractic care.
10 Powerful Benefits of Chiropractic Care
1. Powerful pain relief.
Several studies have shown that chiropractic care can reduce pain more effectively than over the counter or prescription medications. A study done in 2013 found that patients with neck pain had faster improvement with chiropractic treatments, but also they paid less for pain treatment overall.
2. Treat ailments at their source.
Taking over the counter or prescription medications for life’s aches and pains may temporarily make the symptoms disappear, but they do not treat the cause. A doctor of chiropractic can identify any subluxations in the spine, which are often the root of our issues.
The spine houses the body’s nervous system, which controls every function of the body. If the spine is misaligned, the nervous system cannot function as it should, and the body feels it. Subluxations may result in a variety of ailments from headaches to seasonal allergies, back pain to neck pain, poor sleep habits to snoring, and everything in between.
By identifying and correcting these subluxations at their source, your ailments can be gone, once and for all.
3. Drug-free pain management.
Unfortunately, there is a pain killer epidemic across the United States. Both prescription and over the counter medications are far too easy to come by, and they do not treat pain at its source!
Chiropractic adjustments offer a safe, natural, effective, and drug-free alternative to pain management. Doctors of chiropractic treat the whole body. They focus on giving the body a healthy and sturdy spine and foundation. Why? Because the nervous system within the spine controls everything in the body.
A healthy nervous system allows the body to heal itself, and keeps pain under control. In many cases it may even eliminate pain by treating it at its source!
4. Can treat work or auto accident injuries.
Chiropractic is a great way to treat work and automobile injuries. Whiplash is a common side effect of both. According to the Mayo Clinic, “Whiplash is a neck injury due to forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, like the cracking of a whip…Common signs and symptoms of whiplash include neck pain, stiffness and headaches.”
It is recommended to seek treatment within 24 hours of the accident. This gives the doctor of chiropractic time to correct subluxations before the pain and swelling can intensify. Those who seek chiropractic as their first method for whiplash treatment often have a faster recovery time and lower levels of pain.
5. Can help make pregnancy and delivery easier.
Doctors of chiropractic can help prepare both mom and baby for delivery. Women who received regular chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy experience:
- shorter labor times
- faster recovery
- baby in correct position for birth
- fewer interventions during labor and delivery
- reduced back and neck pain
- natural sciatica treatment
6. Non-invasive treatment option.
Chiropractic is based on the fact that the body is designed to heal itself. One of the best parts of chiropractic treatment is that it is often quick. While more than one visit is often necessary for full healing, appointments generally do not take long to provide instant relief!
7. Improve posture.
Your mom was on to something when she told you 100 times to sit up straight. Your posture packs a lot of power. Apart from a great posture exuding confidence, it can also reduce pain. Good posture helps keep the spine in alignment, the body’s systems functioning as they should, and helps you portray confidence to those around you.
8. Offers preventative care.
When subluxations are present in the spine, the body cannot function as it should. Subluxations may result in muscle pains, back pain, trouble sleeping, allergies, and more. By regularly seeing a chiropractor, you can prevent these issues from occurring in the first place!
9. Improves overall mood.
Chiropractic care is proven to reduce pain and stress. By reducing pain and stress, it’s obvious that one’s mood would improve! Often, by simply treating life’s pain and ailments and their root causes, chiropractors are able to help treat anxiety and other mood disorders.
Patients who often suffer from chronic pain often suffer from tension, anxiety, and depression. Pain can feel and is certain debilitating. By treating pain, chiropractors are improving the quality of patients lives. This helps boost their moods and their quality of life!
10. Get better sleep.
According to Dr. Bill Davis, “With 40 million Americans experiencing a chronic sleeping disorder and 62% of American adults experiencing problems sleeping a few nights a week, Americans desperately need to sleep better. Chiropractic has been shown to improve sleep, both in children and adults.”
It is recommended for adults to get no less than 6-8 hours of sleep each night. Unfortunately, most of us fall far short of that mark. Whether we are tossing and turning to get comfortable, or can’t turn our minds off, chiropractic can help!
