Get Your Body Functioning Well With Chiropractic
By Paul Rothbart
The human body is made up of complex systems. When they are all functioning optimally, you feel good, perform well mentally and physically, and you're healthy. If there is a problem with any of the systems, the function is thrown off and can affect the entire body. You don't feel well and performing tasks may become difficult. It stands to reason then that you want all systems functioning well whenever possible. A form of treatment that could get your entire body with all of its systems functioning together the way it's supposed to would be a good choice. Chiropractic care may be that option.
Spine and Joint Function
One of the main things that a chiropractor does is work on the spine and the joints. Examinations are performed that can find compressed vertebrae, subluxations, or other problems. The chiropractor can then fix the issues with a series of adjustments. This can restore the full range of motion to the joints and get them functioning properly. It can increase mobility which has a positive impact on the entire body. The spine is especially important to all of the body's systems. It houses the spinal cord. Back problems can place pressure on the cord. As it carries the nerves that connect the brain to every other part of the body, that can impact every system. You may feel pain or numbness in extremities, it can affect blood flow and digestion. Adjustments can also relieve pain which will always negatively impact function.
Headaches and Migraines
Problems in the spine can also cause other issues. Tension headaches and migraines are often attributed to pressure on the spinal cord, especially in the neck. Tight muscles in the shoulders and neck may also be contributing factors. When a chiropractor makes an adjustment, loosening muscles, and relieving pressure on the spinal cord, the headaches often cease. Keeping the spine in good shape can prevent them in the future.
None of your body's systems will function well if you are not getting good sleep. Tossing and turning, unable to get comfortable denies your body the rest and restoration it needs to repair cells and restore energy levels. Poor sleep throws everything off. Your ability to concentrate, focus, and even perform the simplest of tasks will be compromised. Many patients find that regular chiropractic treatments help them to get better sleep. Consistent, quality sleep will always restore functionality to all of the body's systems.
