Routine chiropractic manipulation of your vertebrae can help you experience less pain. This non-invasive, non-pharmacological therapeutic approach is based on aligning the musculoskeletal structure to allow the body to function optimally, heal itself, and decrease the need for medication or surgery.
Chiropractic care helps to restore mobility to joints that have been traumatized by repetitive stress, falling, and auto accident, or even just sitting down for hours in a misaligned position. Regular visits to your chiropractor can help to reduce the amount of pain you feel in your bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Let's look closer at how chiropractic care can help with pain management, and then review some of the other powerful benefits of chiropractic.
Chiropractic Care Relieves Pain
Chiropractic therapy focuses on the structure of the body, especially the spine. Your chiropractor will manipulate your body's alignment, which will help relieve your pain, increase your range of motion, and improve overall function.
Chiropractic typically involves spinal manipulation, but may also include other therapeutic modalities, including deep tissue massage, postural education and training, and ergonomic training that teaches you how to stand, walk, and sit in ways that won't stress your spine.
Modern chiropractors routinely work with pain management experts, family doctors, and surgeons to achieve the most comprehensive results.
Chiropractic Care Boosts Immunity
In a normal, healthy human body, different systems work together to create optimal health. These include the cardiovascular system, lymphatic system, respiratory system, musculoskeletal system, endocrine system, neurological system, and the immune system.
If your spinal vertebrae become misaligned, it can cause dysfunction of the nervous system, which, in turn, can stress the entire body out. If the vertebrae remain misaligned, the stress becomes chronic, and this can cause poorly coordinated immune system responses.
Regular visits to a chiropractor will help to ensure that your vertebrae remain properly aligned, which will help all your bodily systems work in a more coordinated manner together. Over time, routine chiropractic care helps to improve overall health and naturally boost immunity.
Chiropractic Care Enhances Overall Wellbeing
Your overall wellbeing is created by a complex collaboration of psychological, physical, and physiological attributes. If all parts of your body are not working properly, in unison with one another, it can cause uncoordinated neurological responses.
If any of your 24 vertebrae become misaligned (subluxate), it can irritate the nerves and tissues around it. Subluxation also exposes nerves to damage. All of this interferes with the proper transmission of neurological information from the brain to the body and back to the brain.
Energy and information constantly cycle from the brain through the entire neurological system, instructing the body's trillions of cells about how to work together in harmony.
If you have one or more vertebrae out of alignment, it interrupts the most efficient path of information transference, which means that your cells are communicating less effectively than they could.
Realigning subluxated vertebrae to restore their proper position in the spine makes energy and information flow more efficiently. Think of it like turning up the dimmer switch on a light. When the subluxation is corrected, more energy flows, which contributes to enhanced performance on all levels.
Chiropractic is more than an alternative therapy to alleviate common musculoskeletal conditions. It is a holistic approach to enhancing health and immunity throughout the entire body. Regular chiropractic manipulation keeps your spine aligned, and that has myriad benefits.
If you want to enhance your pain management strategy, increase your mobility, decrease your risk of injury, and live your best life, consider the many benefits of routine chiropractic care. It's a natural, drug-free, non-invasive therapy system that can improve your overall well-being.
