Many patients seek chiropractic care for various reasons, including back pain, headaches, muscle aches, numbness, and so much more. Aligning the skeletal system and balancing your muscles are imperative in overall health. The benefits of chiropractic care go well beyond pain relief and can help improve health and wellbeing without the need for drugs or surgery.
Here are four reasons why you should visit a chiropractor today.
Back and Neck Pain Relief
Back and neck pain are some of the most common problems for which people seek chiropractic care. Back and neck pain can be caused by a variety of things, such as overuse, strenuous activity, or improper use.
A chiropractor focuses on spinal manipulation and alignment to stimulate the body’s self-healing abilities. Spinal manipulation can help improve the mobility of the spine and restore range of motion.
Everyone has experienced headache pain at some point in their lives. Headaches can be caused by several reasons, including stress, diet, environment, hormones, lack of sleep, and caffeine withdrawal. They can range from a mild, dull ache to severe, throbbing pain. Migraines are another type of headache that can cause throbbing in the head and is often accompanied by nausea and sensitivity to light and sound.
Research has shown that spinal manipulation therapy provides pain relief for cervicogenic headaches and is commonly used as the first-line treatment for tension-type headaches and migraine headaches.
Chiropractic adjustments can improve spinal function and alleviate stress on the nervous system. This will allow your body to function normally and reduce any tension on the nervous system that may cause your headaches to develop.
Do you suffer from insomnia? Pain is a leading factor in poor quality of sleep. Studies show that insomnia affects over 30% of adults and is correlated with health issues. If a new pillow or cutting out caffeine aren’t helping alleviate your sleeping problems, visiting a chiropractor may be the best solution for you.
Seeking help from a chiropractor may help you address your sleeping issues, allowing you to obtain a good night’s sleep. Regular chiropractic care for individuals with sleep issues can help:
- Relax the body
- Relieve pain and discomfort
- Ease muscle tension
- Stimulate circulation and blood flow
Do you find yourself slouching over your work desk for nine hours a day? It is obvious that the root of your back and neck pain are caused by your posture. A postural imbalance is when opposite muscles do not have equal strength or flexibility, which can seriously impact the body’s nervous system.
Chiropractic care can help you correct your poor posture and realign your spine to reduce muscle tension and increase your freedom of movement.
