Most think of chiropractic care and think of a back or spine injury but that isn’t all that chiropractic care has to offer. Chiropractic care is also used to improve your musculoskeletal health which impacts your daily function and quality of life.
The main objective of chiropractic care is to reduce the pressure on the spinal nerves by realigning your vertebrae. This will help to ensure the health of your nervous system and your body can function normally.
Here are just a few of the top benefits of routine chiropractic care:
Improved Joint Mobility and Function
Chiropractic adjustments and manipulations are used to realign the bones and joints. They can help to reduce and alleviate misalignments and restrictions throughout the spine and joints. Routine care can help in reducing pain, restoring range of motion and improving flexibility, balance and coordination. Regular treatments are highly effective at maintaining proper joint position which can naturally improve overall mobility and function.
Reduced Muscle Discomfort
Chiropractic adjustments can help provide immediate pain relief and can support muscle therapy. Therapeutic massages can help maintain proper position and muscle health and can encourage improved muscle health. Your tissues heal quicker once the joints are realigned and help relax the deep layers of soft tissues, allowing muscle therapies to work much more effectively.
Adjustments can also help to properly align your joints, which can help relieve any excessive pressure that has been placed on the surrounding nerves which often results in muscle pain and discomfort near the joints. Misalignments can result in overcompensation during physical activity which increases discomfort and the likelihood of suffering an injury.
Inflammation refers to your body’s process of fighting against things that harm it, like infections, injuries and toxins. Inflammation is one of the top causes of pain, joint issues and tension. Chronic inflammation has been linked to a number of cardiovascular, bone, muscular and metabolic diseases. While the cause of chronic inflammation can be due to your lifestyle – diet, level of physical activity and sleeping habits – chiropractic care can help in reducing the amount of inflammation in your body. Specific care could consist of ultrasound, usage of a TENS unit to stimulate the nerves or spinal manipulation.
