The Secret of a Healthy Body

By Sara Butler

Millions of Americans experience pain each and every day. It could be from an injury when you were younger, a car accident, or it may just be that the years are finally catching up with your body. Whatever the reason, chiropractic care is a safe and effective way to help relieve pain throughout your entire life. Here are five secrets from the chiropractors at The Joint to help you live a healthy and pain-free life.

You Don’t Need Medications

Certainly, some situations call for medication, but if your first line of defense against aches and pains is to reach for over-the-counter medication, it doesn’t have to be. Pain medication merely masks the pain associated with an underlying problem. If the root of the problem isn’t addressed, then the pain will only continue – and may even get worse.

Your chiropractor wants to find the underlying cause of your pain and do something about it. Chiropractic treatments can restore your body to its normal and natural state, helping to eliminate pain along the way.

If Your Spine is Aligned, You’ll Have a Healthier Body

There are 24 vertebrae in your spine that help your body to move and also provide important protection for the spinal nerves within. When a vertebra is out of alignment, then it can have a dramatic effect on other parts of your body. That’s because your nervous system controls your entire body. If it’s not allowed to work unimpeded, then it can cause problems all over.

How do you get misalignments? They occur three main ways:

  • Physical stress – This includes slips, falls, contact sports, and repetitive motions
  • Emotional stress – This includes stress from work, depression, anxiety, and family stress or anxiety
  • Chemical stress – This includes food and drink additives, environmental pollution, and food coloring and preservatives

Chiropractic treatment can help to repair damage from these stressors and prevent future problems from occurring.

Changing Your Diet

Another great way to fight pain is your diet! Most people don’t think of food as medicine, but it truly can be if you know what to do. Foods high in fat, preservatives, sodium, and lacking in essential nutrients and vitamins can cause you to gain weight. If you are at an unhealthy weight, then that can cause pain in your joints as they work to support the extra weight. Combine that with inflammation caused by unhealthy fats and you’ve got a recipe for disaster! If you can eat healthily, then you can give your body an advantage over pain.

Managing pain is made easier with the help of a chiropractor, so take action to support a healthy body with a visit to The Joint Chiropractic!
