Why You Need a Chiropractor!

Chiropractic care is on the rise in the US, and for good reason. Nearly every person will experience back pain in their lives, and who better to see than your friendly neighborhood chiropractor? They do more than just crack backs, after all! Here is how you can benefit from chiropractic care.

Who Seeks Chiropractic Care?

22 million American seek chiropractic care each year, and about 35% of those do in an effort to get relief from back pain. Most often, back pain is the result of an injury in a car accident or due to sports or exercise.

It’s not just adults seeking chiropractic care, either. Since 1991, 8.5% more children have seen chiropractors.

What Does a Chiropractor Treat?

Chiropractors don’t just look at your back, but your whole body. Chiropractors can address problems like sleep disorders, arthritis, bursitis, sciatica, neck and back pain, carpel tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia and migraine or tension headaches. Basically, chiropractors see your body as a machine, and if one part of the machine isn’t working optimally it can throw the whole thing off! So, they seek out the parts that aren’t working optimally and help you to get them in proper working order!

Benefits You May Not Know

There have been some studies on chiropractic care that have yielded results you may find surprising. For example, a study evaluated 100 people receiving adjustments and used EEG to measure brain activity. The results showed that chiropractic care improved brain function! So it’s not just good for your body, but your brain too!

Another case study was done and it revealed that mood disorders like depression, improved with chiropractic adjustments too. The patients studied have 34 adjustments over an 11 month period and it found among the benefits an avoidance of side effects from antidepressant medications.

Chiropractors believe that spinal health promotes overall health, so it is not surprising to find that the benefits of chiropractic go beyond the spine.

Why You Should See a Chiropractor

Medicine treats sickness, but chiropractic promotes health. It’s just that simple. Chiropractic care is meant to enhance your health, not to just treat you when you are sick. This is why seeing a chiropractor even when you aren’t having problems should be an important part of your care. You do to the dentist, after all, when you aren’t having trouble. Chiropractors should be viewed much the same way. So, what are you waiting for? Call and make an appointment today!
