If Youâ€™re Healthy, Do You Need a Chiropractor?
By Sara Butler
Most people seek out chiropractic care to address a specific problem such as back or neck pain, but if you’re a healthy person with no active health issues should you still see a chiropractor? The answer to that question is a resounding yes! There’s no good reason not to see a chiropractor for routine care if you are a healthy person with no complaints because there are some major health benefits to regular chiropractic care for everyone. Here are just a few!
Give Your Mood a Boost
The care given by your chiropractor can help to restore balance to your body, including your hormones. The adjustments provided by a chiropractor to your joints and spine relax your body, helping to control the production of the stress hormone cortisol. It also helps you to release stress and increase your body’s production of good hormones such as oxytocin and dopamine. These things come together to help you to feel good and also have a positive impact on your mood.
Reduce Minor Pain
Everyone suffers from minor aches and pains, and many people often ignore them. These pain signals, no matter how minor, shouldn’t be ignored because you never know when they can morph into a much larger problem. If you’re overworking your body or your posture is less than perfect throughout the day it can put strain and stress on your body. Ignoring these things can lead to painful conditions; regular chiropractic care is a great way to keep these things in check and helps you to nip these problems right in the bud, so to speak.
Sleep is incredibly important to the health of your body and your mind, and if you’re not getting good quality sleep at night, it can have a big impact on your overall health. When you’re free of pain and your mind is not in a state of stress you may find that you sleep much better at night. If you are stressed it can cause your brain to stay quite active at night and result in larger sleep issues, such as insomnia.
With chiropractic care, you are helping to create an environment in your body and in your mind that is free from physical pain and stress; this allows you to stay calm and unwind when you’re going to bed at night, which may result in a better night’s rest.
As you can see, there are a lot of reasons why even those who consider themselves healthy should go and see a chiropractor regularly. So take advantage of the walk-in policy and see one of the friendly, helpful doctors at The Joint Chiropractic today!
