The Little-Known Health Benefits Of Chiropractic Care
Most People Are Unaware Of The Benefits They Are Missing Out On ...
Many people who have never experienced chiropractic care may be completely unaware of the incredible health benefits of regularly consulting a doctor of chiropractic. Whether you are experiencing a specific problem or you want to improve your overall health and well-being, when you visit a chiropractor, you’re taking a positive, natural approach to your healthcare.
Here are some of the health benefits that regular chiropractic care can provide for you and your family.
Boost To Your Immune System
Research indicates that Chiropractic patients have incredibly strong immune systems. Research at New York’s Preventive Medicine Institute measured 107 individuals who had received long-term Chiropractic care. The chiropractic patients were shown to have a 200% greater immune competence than people who had not received chiropractic care. Better immune system also means fewer colds and flu's
Much Improved Sleep Patterns
A good night’s sleep contributes to good health. Chiropractic care helps to reduce the pain and associated anxiety of spinal misalignments which often interfere with sleep patterns. In a double-blind study published in 2005, one third of the chiropractic patients reported that their sleep patterns improved immediately after receiving care.
When the spine is subluxated, or misaligned, due to trauma, pain is a common symptom. Research tells us that chiropractic adjustments are effective for not only decreasing immediate pain symptoms but reducing the likelihood of future problems as well.
Decreased Dependence On Drugs
Each year, many people visit their doctor’s office or the emergency room because of adverse prescription drug side effects. Chiropractic care is a drugless approach to healthcare that has been shown to reduce pharmaceutical costs by 51.8%.
Healthier, Happier Kids
In a study of 200 kids under chiropractic care versus 200 kids under traditional medical care, those receiving regular adjustments had fewer ear infections, asthma and allergies.
Chiropractors are experts at identifying the problems at the root of poor posture through the analysis of spinal curvatures and structural alignment. Chiropractic adjustments can restore proper posture, remove irritation from the soft tissues surrounding the vertebra and the nerves that exit between them, and allow your body to function optimally.
Research has demonstrated those suffering with anxiety and depression frequently have dramatic results with chiropractic care. This is because chiropractic has been shown to improve hormone balance. Decreasing the bad hormones, such as cortisol, and increasing the good hormones, such as dopamine and nor epinephrine, makes a big difference in how the brain and body works and how a person feels.
An Important Part of Your Health Care Team
Doctors of chiropractic are an excellent resource to add to your health care team. They are well-trained, naturally minded professionals who undergo a rigorous education in the healing sciences, similar to that of medical doctors. In fact, in some areas, such as anatomy, physiology, rehabilitation, nutrition and public health, they receive more education than medical doctors.
Doctors of chiropractic work in tandem with other healthcare professionals. So if your condition requires attention from another branch of the healthcare profession, that recommendation or referral will be made.
If you have never been to a chiropractor before, now is a great time to get started!
