Chiropractic Can Help with What?
By Sara Butler
Most people see a chiropractor because they’ve got back or neck pain, and are unaware of the variety of other things chiropractic care may be able to help with. Your body is a complex machine, and every part is interconnected. Chiropractors are kind of like body detectives, seeking out the root cause of the problems you’re having and treating them. Here are some of the lesser known ways chiropractic may be able to help you.
If you suffer from anxiety or depression, chiropractic may be able to help. A study published in the Journal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research found that patients who received chiropractic care felt it helped them to lessen their symptoms and also helped to relieve muscle tension and increase energy and mental clarity. So, helping your mood to improve may be one of the best side-effects ever!
Chronic ear infections are a problem for the young and old alike. Many times, going to the doctor results in a round of antibiotics that may not be needed, and this is where chiropractic care can offer another alternative. Chiropractic has been found to help manage chronic ear infections without using drugs. Your chiropractor can do adjustments to help keep the tubes that regulate the pressure and fluid in your ears clear and open, reducing the chance of recurring infection and helping patients to get relief. So, next time you have an ear infection talk to your chiropractor about it!
Allergies can be a real pain, and they can keep you from doing the things you enjoy most. Chiropractic can help you to manage symptoms of seasonal allergies by helping your immune system to function optimally and keep your central nervous system free of interference in the form of subluxations.
Chronic migraine sufferers may find some relief from headaches with chiropractic care. Many headaches and migraines can be triggered due to problems with your neck. Regular chiropractic adjustments that keep your neck aligned have been shown to reduce the frequency of migraines as well as other types of headaches in people who suffer from them chronically.
When you go to your chiropractor you shouldn’t assume they can only help you with issues related to pain in your back or neck – they can do so much more! So, if you’re having issues with other problems and they are impacting your health and enjoyment of everyday activities, talk to your chiropractor about it during your next visit to The Joint Chiropractic.
