When you think about chiropractic care, you likely consider that such care is very effective for backaches, stiff necks, achy joints, bulging discs, and the like – but not much else. On the contrary, chiropractic care can offer a host of benefits for a series of health conditions that you probably haven’t considered. Give chiropractic care a closer look; a healthier future can be yours.
Chiropractic care builds on a holistic approach to health care that allows your mind and body to actively contribute to achieving your own optimal health. Some of the conditions that chiropractic care can treat effectively may well surprise you.
- Migraines and Tension Headaches – About 90 percent of Americans suffer from headaches at varying levels of severity and frequency. Many people resort to popping a painkiller and hoping for the best, but there is a better way. Research indicates that because most headaches originate in the neck, spinal manipulation – a primary form of chiropractic care – is an effective treatment that can lead to substantial improvement.
- Anxiety and Stress – Stress is a fact of life. Whatever its source and whatever its severity, your stress affects your emotional and physical health and well-being. Prolonged exposure to the body’s natural fight-or-flight response to stress and anxiety can have serious health implications for your nervous system. Because your spine is the foundation of your nervous system and because chiropractic care focuses on spinal health, chiropractic can help you cope with stress more healthfully.
- Fibromyalgia – Fibromyalgia (FM) is a bedeviling and chronic disorder that involves a topography of pain across the entire musculoskeletal system. To obtain a diagnosis of FM, you probably have at least 11 identified trigger points of pain or tenderness. Additionally, sleep and mood disturbances often play a role in FM. Many people who suffer from FM are hard-pressed to find relief, but chiropractic care, with its musculoskeletal focus, has much to offer, including pressure-point relief and the overall reduction of bodily pain through spinal adjustments.
- Decreased Flexibility – As you age, your flexibility naturally decreases in both range of motion and ease of movement, which often leads to a decrease in healthy exercise and activity. Ultimately, this can lead to a use-it-or-lose-it negative loop whereby you continue to lose flexibility through disuse. Chiropractic care can help; research confirms that chiropractic care can increase and improve both range and ease of motion.
