Chiropractic Care: Great for Backs and Overall Health
By Stephen R. Farris
When you experience lower back pain, it leaves you with a helpless feeling in most cases. You try to get immediate relief with pain medications and/or resting on a heating pad. But the pain seems to persist, no matter what you do.
If it lasts more than a few days, it might be time to visit your local chiropractor. Once you're there, he/she will examine you and diagnose your condition. From there, they'll sit down with you and talk about treatment options and for how long you'll need them.
Most often, your chiropractor will suggest a few exercises you can do between treatment sessions. Exercise, combined with your chiropractic care treatments, can help you recover faster.
Not only does chiropractic care help with lower back pain, it can also be beneficial for heart-health, and overall health.
Heart disease is the number one killer of men and women in the United States, according to research and studies. There are many ways you can reduce your risk for heart disease, including diet and exercise, and through regular chiropractic care. So what can chiropractic care do to help reduce risk of heart disease? Well here's what adjustments can help with:
