How Chiropractic Helps Your Body to Heal
By Sara Butler
Pain is often caused by the joints of the body, especially as you grow older. That’s because these areas are made up of softer tissues than the rest of your body, and they carry quite the load to help you perform your everyday tasks. Since they allow for movement it makes the joints even more susceptible to injury and chronic pain, but you don’t have to suffer from pain anymore. Your chiropractor and the adjustments they provide can help your body to heal and perform at its very best.
What Chiropractic Adjustments Do
Your chiropractor is specially trained to find joint dysfunctions and joint restrictions and then repair them. They do this through something called an adjustment, which uses a concentrated force in a precise direction to restore proper function and alignment to the joint. This also can help to relieve any muscle tension that was occurring from the dysfunction or restriction. When your body is aligned, then it can do what it was meant to do – heal itself.
But How Does It Help to Heal?
There are many ways that chiropractic adjustments aid your body in healing. Aside from the fact that the joint dysfunction or restriction is resolved, they also help to promote healing by:
- Increasing blood flow – When the dysfunction or restriction is resolved, then it increases the blood flow to the area, ensuring that the nervous system and cardiovascular system can work together and repair any tissues that are injured.
- Proper use restored – Now that blood flow has increased, the joint can heal and proper use can be restored, meaning that any limits to the range of motion can be addressed and you can use the joint as needed and as you were meant to.
Of course, there are other less direct ways that chiropractic adjustments help to promote healing. These include things such as increased absorption of nutrients, reduction in pain, and ability to exercise more efficiently.
