Chiropractors are often classified as “back doctors,” but they’re much more than that. It turns out that good spinal alignment is essential to your health, even if you don’t have back pain.
Chiropractic medicine is a natural treatment for pain relief, posture support, and overall health. Furthermore, it can improve your sleep quality, boost your immune system, and much more.
Your spinal cord is part of your body’s nervous system, which delivers information throughout your body. If nerves in and around your spinal cord get compressed or damaged, your body can suffer in numerous ways.
However, chiropractic adjustments can restore your spinal alignment, which can help your nervous system communicate better and help your body function as it should. And, as your nervous system and body function better, you can reap many benefits, such as the following:
Chiropractic adjustments can reposition your muscles, tendons, and nerves to help keep your spine aligned. This, in turn, can enhance blood flow, reduce aches and pains, and help you sleep better.
When your nervous system functions well, it can regulate your digestive system well. And this, in turn, can help you eat food and eliminate it normally, so you can avoid the discomfort of stomach cramps, bloating, acid reflux, or constipation.
Chiropractic care can improve your range of motion. And, with a better range of motion, you’ll be able to do more than you did before.
One study found that chiropractic care may be able to help men and women over age 65 keep their balance and focus better. This is especially important since falls are responsible for more than 80% of hospital admissions in people older than age 65.
Since your immune system uses the nerves in your nervous system to relay messages to your brain, if spinal-alignment issues are impacting your nerves, this could hamper your immune system’s ability to fight off infections. Aligning your spine, however, can help your immune system function optimally.
While these benefits are truly amazing, there are many more. To learn more about how chiropractic care can help you, call 972-306-1400 or book an appointment online with Hands on Health Wellness Center today.
