Unexpected Benefits of Chiropractic Care

By Paul Rothbart

Chiropractic has developed a very good track record for treating back pain over its century plus of existence. Most people automatically think of a chiropractor at the mention of back pain and many have had that pain relieved and successfully treated with chiropractic care. Less commonly known are other unexpected benefits that may result from regularly seeing a chiropractor. Much research has been done and the findings may surprise you. Here are some ways that chiropractic care may benefit your overall health and quality of life.

Improved Balance

I think anyone would agree that balance is important, especially for older adults. Many injuries are the result of falls, outside and in the home. Poor balance is a major contributor to falls. Navigating stairs, carrying large objects, and walking on uneven pavement can be challenging and good balance goes a long way toward making things easier. Regular chiropractic care keeps the spine and joints functioning properly and this may improve balance.

Better Range of Motion

It's irritating and sometimes painful when a joint loses range of motion. Reaching up to a high shelf, walking down a flight of stairs, or something as simple as throwing a ball, may be impacted by a joint that is not functioning optimally. Treating joints is one of the specialties of chiropractic care, as is treating the body as a whole. When subluxations are corrected, every part of the body works together. This may improve range of motion in every joint and make many activities easier and more enjoyable. Chiropractic care can also make them less painful.

Better Sleep

Insomnia and less than optimal sleep are afflictions that are all too common. Few things are as important to good mental and physical health as good sleep. Aches and pains and general discomfort make sleeping well difficult. Chiropractic adjustments can reduce pain and help the body relax. A pain-free, relaxed body will sleep much better. A good night's sleep on a regular basis improves health and quality of life tremendously. 

Lower Blood Pressure

Hypertension and prehypertension are fairly common issues. A better diet, mainly less sodium, can help and, in some cases, medication is prescribed. Another all natural way that may lower blood pressure is chiropractic care. Studies have shown that treatments of the neck target nerves and may reduce blood pressure every bit as effectively as medication.

Chiropractic care is one of the first things people think of for treating back pain. But there are a number of benefits to seeing a chiropractor that are not common knowledge. Stop by The Joint Chiropractic. No appointment is necessary and you may just find that your overall health and quality of life will be improved.
