5 Things You Didn’t Know Your Chiropractor Can Treat For You
Most people know a chiropractor can help adjust the back and neck to relieve aches and pains. But few people realize that chiropractors can do much more than that. The principles of chiropractic are that the mind and body can heal itself, and there are 5 things you probably didn’t think you could schedule a chiropractic appointment for to help get you feeling like your best self!
1. Tension headaches and migraines
If you frequently get headaches from stress, or worse, you suffer from migraines, a chiropractor can manipulate the spine and relieve that tension to stop the throbbing in your head. Most headaches are caused by muscle tension, commonly from the neck where we hold unnatural positions at our desks all day. Call on a chiropractor to bring you relief!
2. Anxiety and stress
With all your responsibilities at work and at home, your anxiety and stress levels can soar. What’s worse, the more stressed you are, the more prone you are to illnesses. How does this relate to chiropractors? The spine is where the source of your nerves are and an adjustment can help ease the stress at the root for your best health.
This chronic disorder spreads sensitivity and pain all over the musculoskeletal system. Because it’s so complex in that it affects the body in pain, disturbs sleep, and alters mood, chiropractors can help by putting a positive impact on the neuromusculoskeletal portion of your body. It treats pressure points and helps relieve the pain for those that suffer from this condition.
4. Weakened immune system
Because the endocrine system, immune system, and nervous system are all tied together, any problems with them can translate to weakened immunity for you. With weakened immunity, you’re more vulnerable to illnesses. Chiropractic adjustments can help reduce the stress on your nervous system which elicits a proper response from your immune system to bolster your health, something that is especially important as we change seasons into the colder months.
5. Lack of flexibility
As we age, our range of motion and flexibility aren’t what they used to be. All that wear and tear takes a toll, preventing us from moving the way we once did. With a decrease in range of motion and flexibility though, it puts us closer to disability. Having regular chiropractic adjustments can help boost range of motion and flexibility, realigning joints and bones to reduce pain and improve your quality of life.
