5 Essential Reasons You Should Visit A Chiropractor


spineWhen faced with our everyday ailments such as headaches, backaches or even menstrual cramps, we often forget that there is an alternative form of pain relief to that of prescription drugs, over the counter medication and surgery. While these forms of pain relief can incur harmful side-effect, seeking help from a chiropractor offers safe and effective help in pain relief, management and prevention.

Chiropractic care is growing in popularity as patients that seek care are living healthier and happier lifestyles. Read the descriptions below to find out why you should consult your local chiropractor.

1. If You Suffer From Neck and Back Pain 

According to the National Pain Report, back pain is the leading cause of disability in people under the age of 45. Often, back pain makes everyday routines painful and even prevents active lifestyles. Chiropractic physicians have high levels of expertise in managing and preventing neck and back pain through manipulation, mobilization, acupuncture, self-correcting exercises, acupressure, and massage. Why take that addictive pain killer when you can relieve pain naturally?

2. If You Suffer From Headaches and Migraines

Did you know that headaches originating in your neck can potentially be prevented or cured with the proper chiropractic adjustments? Although headaches, a symptom of central nervous system stress, are not technically treated by chiropractors, proper adjustments may be made to remove pressure from nerves, allowing the entire body to function better and thus, relieving headaches.

3. For Menstrual Pain and Pregnancy Support

Not only have side effects of menstruation and pregnancy such as cramping, back pain and headaches been lessened under the care of a chiropractor but did you know that chiropractors also help pregnant women? Research shows women who received care from a chiropractor during their pregnancy have had less painful and shorter births. 

4. For A Healthier Lifestyle 

The ways that chiropractic care has improved lifestyles is amazing. Chiropractic care aims to improve the function and vitality of your entire body and mind by focusing on removing nerve interference (subluxation). Because your Nervous System controls your body’s function, stresses on your Nervous System create dysfunction and lead to various symptoms of illness. Research shows that regular visits to a chiropractor can lessen symptoms of allergies, asthma and arthritis to name a few. With regular visits to a chiropractor, the function of your Nervous System increases and in turn, you feel better!

5. To Increase Your Children’s Health 

Recently, more and more parents have been bringing their children to see chiropractors for many reasons. Chiropractic care has helped children that suffer from acid reflux, ear infections, asthma, ADD, ADHD, and even Autism through adjustments that remove interference with the Central Nervous System.  As I stated before, this leads to better bodily function overall and in turn, a healthier lifestyle. Additionally, chiropractic care is extremely safe and will not harm your child in any way.
