While most of us associate chiropractors with spinal manipulations and alleviating pain, they do much more.
Chiropractors undergo extensive training, and they have to pass four national board exams. This means the more than 70,000 chiropractors in the U.S. are well-qualified to offer multiple treatment options. Chiropractors provide education about nutrition, exercise, and hydration. During chiropractic care, they treat your body as a whole instead of focusing on any one area.
At Mount Propspect Health Center, we also offer a range of complementary treatments to supplement spinal manipulations, such as massage and hot and cold therapy.
Most people who visit the chiropractor do so for pain relief. It is quite common to experience lower back pain. In fact, more than 35% of patients who visit chiropractors do so to treat lower or upper back pain. Around 20% of patients received chiropractic care for their neck pain.
This type of pain can occur for many reasons. It can happen by carrying heavy equipment by firefighters, in the line of active duty by police officers, or from standing on their feet all day as experienced by nurses. Others can develop pain from sitting at a desk all day, a category that has expanded to include teachers and other white-collar workers.
Experience Restored Mobility
Chiropractic care can help you move better, as well. Lack of mobility can stem from conditions like arthritis and back pain. It can also come from injuries, such as slip and falls, car accidents, and sports injuries.
With the help of a chiropractor, you can reduce inflammation and improve your ability to move your ligaments and muscles. By restoring mobility, chiropractic care can generate lots of benefits, from allowing patients to perform their daily tasks to let them exercise again!
Improve How You Feel
Because of the whole-body approach that chiropractors take when providing care, most patients experience improvements in how they feel. Chiropractic can boost your muscle strength, range of motion, and flexibility, as well as your mental health. It can even improve your immune response.
Enhance Your Digestion
Chiropractic care is not all the time given in response to pain or lack of mobility. Chiropractic care can also be part of your everyday health routine. It can even help you with digestion!
This because your spinal nerves are also responsible for your stomach. When the vertebrae aren’t aligned properly, your nerves may signal the stomach to produce more acid. That can result in acid reflux, gas, and heartburn.
Boost Your Energy
Chiropractic can give you more energy, as well. When your spine has less tension, your nerves are free to improve their efficiency and function. The result is more energy for you to complete all the activities you want to.
