5 Reasons To See a Chiropractor in 2020
Still on the fence about seeing a chiropractor? Here are some reasons chiropractic care could be the right choice for you.
A National Sleep Foundation poll found that as many as 60% of American adults experience sleep problems in their lifetime. According to the American Physical Therapy Association Move Forward survey, 37% of adults contribute their sleep problems to lower back pain, half of whom claim to suffer from poor sleep quality. Regular visits to your chiropractor can result in improved sleep. Manipulation therapies that are used in chiropractic treatment are believed to help improve blood flow in patients, which is largely essential to good sleep.
Relief from Chronic Pain
A patient with chronic pain can expect a chiropractor to try to get to the root of the problem in the first chiropractic session. The chiropractor first determines where inflammation and muscle tension are occurring and then develop an effective treatment plan for the patient. This specialized approach is what draws many patients to seek chiropractic care for relief from chronic pain. Studies further show that, for patients with long term conditions, chiropractic care is more effective than pain clinics in treating the intensity of pain. Pain clinics tend to focus on the symptoms of the pain rather than the cause, as is done with chiropractic care.
Boost Your Immune System
Did you know that chiropractic treatment not only improves spinal motion and physical function, it also boosts the immune system? Because the nervous system and immune system are so interlinked, tweaking one tweaks the other and thus, a chiropractic adjustment can actually improve your health. This is supported in a series of studies published by the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics which showed increased biological activity among several types of immune system cells following a chiropractic adjustment.
Many patients choose chiropractic care as an alternative to treatment with pain medications, in an effort to avoid the inevitable side effects of prescription drugs.
Many people choose to see a chiropractor as an alternative to taking pain relief medication, and the inevitable side effects that can occur. Chiropractic care is safer and more effective because a chiropractor works to get to the root of the problem and helps patients to better manage their condition. A chiropractor works to put together a treatment plan to help patients get back on track to good health.
Help with Migraines / Headaches
With 9 out of 10 Americans reportedly suffering from headaches and migraines in varying intensity, experiencing such severe pain on a regular basis can really affect one’s quality of life.
