Surprises Can Be Good: Benefits of Chiropractic Care
By Donna Kostiew
It is common knowledge that many people see a chiropractor for better health and pain relief in regard to their backs and necks, but what isn’t always known is that chiropractic treatments can offer so much more to maintaining a healthy body. At The Joint Chiropractic, many of our patients report that their health has improved in ways that they didn’t even think about and oftentimes are unrelated to the initial reason for the visit. Chiropractic care is kind of like the gift that keeps on giving … and don’t we all just love when that happens? Here are a few examples of why you might want to see a chiropractor and how your health may improve when receiving regular spinal adjustments.
Fewer Digestive Issues (Yes, We Are Going to Talk About This)
If you frequently have problems with your digestive system such as acid reflux, irritable bowel, bloating, constipation, or some other type of digestive issue, then chiropractic care is a great place to start for relief. The nerves in the thoracic region of the spine are linked with digestion, so if there is any kind of joint restriction in that area, problems will arise. Chiropractic treatments can help relieve the pressure and the nerve interference that is causing all of the problems and will help your organs regain the function they were meant to have.
Getting Rid of Those Killer Headaches
Most headaches can be dealt with quite easily because they come and go. Maybe one appears because we are feeling under the weather, maybe another one pops up because our kids will not stop fighting with each other, but usually they will go away with minimal treatment. Unfortunately that’s not how it always is, and if you are suffering from chronic migraines, tension headaches or headaches that originate in the neck, then chiropractic care is an excellent option for you in regards to finding some pain relief. Chiropractic adjustments improve your spinal function and help to alleviate any joint restrictions, stress, or tension in that area; in doing so, the pain level and the occurrence of headaches may be reduced.
It’s Hard Enough Being Pregnant
Aches and pains just seem to be part of the formula with being pregnant. Increased strain on the spine, improper pelvic alignment, and posture changes are to blame for back pain and sciatica. These are the main reasons a pregnant woman may head out to see a chiropractor in seeking relief, but they certainly aren’t the only benefits received. By keeping the spine and pelvis aligned, chiropractic adjustments can also help to make the natural delivery process a lot easier. And as always, chiropractic treatments are safe, drug-free, and non-invasive which is so important to the health of the baby as well as the mother.
Chiropractic offers many advantages beyond just spinal health and back pain relief.
