Even though chiropractic care has been around for as long as western medicine, many people are unaware of the benefits such treatments can have on their pain levels, function, and overall health. When the spine is misaligned, for example, chronic back pain, neck pain, or even migraines can result.
Treatments, such as joint manipulation, can realign the vertebrae, reducing pressure on the spinal column. Here at just six benefits of visiting a chiropractic care center.
#1) Reduce Pain Without Medications
When you have chronic pain, you often reach for over the counter medications, which when taken for an extended amount of time, can cause damage to the liver, kidneys and more. Chiropractic care, however, can provide much needed pain relief without the risks of medications.
#2) Surgery-Free Solutions
Before opting for invasive and risky surgery, you should at least speak with a chiropractic care center to make sure the procedure is actually necessary. There may be non-surgical solutions that can reduce pain, and improve function, such as Myofascial Release Therapy.
#3) Headache Relief
Neurological Dysfunction, misaligned vertebrae, or tight muscles can cause migraines and other headaches, which can be as debilitating as chronic back pain. Many people report a decrease in headaches after visiting their chiropractor.
#4) Prevent Neuromuscular Based Diseases
It’s always best to avoid problems with preventive measures, and while chiropractors are more known for treating problems after they arise, proper preventative treatment can actually prevent these problems before they happen, especially when used with strengthening exercises.
#5) Improve Neurological Conditions
Good chiropractic care has actually been shown to help improve neurological conditions, such as MS or following a stroke. This is particularly true when the chiropractor has specialized training and experience in chiropractic treatments for functional neurology, such as Dr. Bartoe.
#6) Improve Blood Pressure
Studies have shown that some chiropractic treatments can help reduce high blood pressure, and improve low blood pressure, by relieving the body’s stress reactions caused by pain or misalignment.
The benefits of chiropractic care are many, but all help improve the quality of life. For more information, please contact Dr. Bartoe today.
