Whatever Makes You Smile, Chiropractic Magnifies It
By Sandy Schroeder
Most of us know laughter helps us get through the day and smiles work better than frowns. But keeping those smiles coming can be a challenge if every day starts with low energy or a stiff neck.
Finding ways to smile more as we feel more energy and less pain could begin with a visit to your local chiropractor. The staff of chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you believe wellness is basic to everything we do.
When you come in, you will find a bustling wellness center filled with adults, teens, children and seniors.
- Adults may be desperately seeking ways to escape exhaustion.
- Seniors may be fighting osteoarthritis in knees, or sciatic nerve pain in the leg.
- Teens may need to dodge the digital slouch.
- School children may need posture tips or sports advice.
The chiropractic solution is simple: Keep the spine healthy and the body will follow. The spine houses the intricate nervous system that links the brain to the body. Your chiropractor uses spinal adjustments to help correct dysfunctions in the spine, which may relieve pain and create a pervasive sense of wellness.
How Wellness Feels
Wellness may show up as fresh energy, better sleep, a clear mind, or improved metabolism. The immune system and digestion may be helped, too. When adjustments are used, a whole person wellness may be the result.
After an adjustment, you can evaluate your results and consider what is next. Choosing a weekly 15-minute adjustment could be the way to keep the wellness going. Linked to that, you may want to try a new diet, upgrade your workout, or enlist some stress reduction tactics, such as mindfulness meditation or tai chi.
Everywhere you go, more people are talking about chiropractic’s contribution to drug-free pain relief, and overall health and wellness.
A recent study from the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics reported on a study of 486 patients from 96 Australian chiropractic clinics who evaluated their chiropractic care. Some 96 percent said chiropractic was good for their overall health, and 91 percent said their chiropractors helped them take more responsibility for their personal health.
