Reasons to See Your Chiropractor
By Donna Stark
To think that chiropractic care is only focused on back and neck pain isn't completely wrong, but it's also not completely accurate either. You see, back and neck pain isn't the only thing chiropractors can help with. There are many other health conditions that can be improved by the precise and gentle adjustments they provide. Take a look at some of them below.
If You Have Fallen
It's easy to see why you should visit your local chiropractor for injuries sustained in a fall because chiropractic care can help reduce the swelling and inflammation, increase circulation, and speed the healing process of them. What isn't easy to see though, is why you should see a chiropractor when you haven't sustained an injury after a fall. Just because you didn't notice anything out of place when you hopped back up on your feet doesn't mean something isn't. It doesn't take much of a fall at all to jar your body out of correct alignment and although you may not see it, your chiropractor will.
If You Suffer From Headaches or Migraines
Most people will get a headache every now and then, but if your headaches are frequent and intense, you may want to see your chiropractor. Routine chiropractic care can ease the muscle tension in your back, neck, and shoulders that could be contributing to your pain, and will correct the alignment issues that could be causing you problems as well.
If You Have Osteoarthritis
If you suffer from osteoarthritis, you probably already know there is no cure, but regular chiropractic adjustments can still help! Chiropractic care is a non-addictive, non-invasive approach to pain relief. It helps osteoarthritis patients by restoring joint function, improving mobility, decreasing inflammation, and alleviating pain. It also helps decrease the risk of future degeneration.
If Pain Is Keeping You From Losing Weight
Yes, you read that right. Establishing regular chiropractic care can help you lose those extra pounds. By placing your body in proper alignment, alleviating pain, and restoring function to the joints and muscles in the body, your local chiropractors can help you with your weight loss journey. Exercise won't hurt as much, your motivation will increase, and before you know it, those pounds will begin to drop!
