Wrong! A very emphatic wrong! It is true that mostly every patient that enters a chiropractic office has some type of back pain – but this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to benefits of getting regular chiropractic adjustments. Aside from musculoskeletal conditions such as neck pain, back pain, shoulder/knee/joint/anywhere pain, headaches, sciatica, and auto accidents, chiropractic does so much more.
Firstly, lets start off with a fully functioning nervous system. The nerves in your spinal column branch off to control your entire body. From your lungs, to digestion, heart function, stomach function, everything! Chiropractic removes nerve interference to these body systems by taking pressure off of the nerves to allow an optimally functioning nervous system. Chiropractic also increases range of motion and improves athletic and physical performance. By removing joint restriction and restoring proper muscle function and range of motion, chiropractic is key for athletes. There’s a reason every NFL and NBA team has their own chiropractor on staff! Feeling stressed? Tired? Sick?
Chiropractic has been shown to reduce stress and improve sleep quality, as well as improve immune system function! There is also research that a chiropractic adjustment to the upper neck can even lower blood pressure.
So whether you are in pain, feeling good and want to feel better, or just want to live a higher quality of life; chiropractic is for you!
