5 Surprising Benefits Of Chiropractic Care
Here are some of the amazing benefits of receiving chiropractic treatment…
You might be thinking that you don’t need chiropractic care because you are not experiencing pain in your back or neck. But you don’t need to be in pain to get adjusted. Pain is the body’s way of indicating there is a problem, but sometimes aches, stiffness or soreness can go unnoticed. Spinal check ups are important for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Catch the little niggles before they turn painful.
1. Improved sleep and increased energy
One of the most common side effects of visiting a chiropractor is a sound night’s sleep. Poor sleep is commonly related to stress, pain, and body aches. Getting adjusted helps alleviate all three. Chiropractic care works by helping individuals improve the quality of their sleep by enhancing the nervous system’s blood flow. Correcting any misplacement in the spine helps individuals attain the right balance of their system.
2. Boosts mental health
1 in 4 people in the UK will experience mental health difficulties at some point in their life and it’s so important to seek help if you’re struggling. Alongside treatment for your mental health condition, a professional may recommend exercising and healthy eating to help manage your condition. Chiropractic treatment can serve as supplementary care to help you manage your mental health as it maximises the health of the nervous system. Your emotional and psychological health are controlled by the nervous system. Recent studies have highlighted the improvements in the autonomic nervous system as a result of chiropractic treatment.
3. Lifestyle advice
Our clinic focuses on all aspects of health and wellness, from the manual therapy treatment to the nutritional, postural and general lifestyle aspects. These key points combine to play a significant role in the cause and rehabilitation of the condition or injury. We know that no two patient’s lives are the same. That’s why all advice Andy gives is specific to your individual lifestyle. For example, if you spend your day sat in the office, then you might be advised to be mindful of your posture and receive guidance for gentle stretches you can do to help your spine. If you spend most of your day active or playing sports, you might receive advice on preventing injury.
4. Stress relief
The busy work week, parenting and having a social life all take their toll on you and your body. The exhaustion of juggling all the tasks of daily life can manifest as mental and physical stress. During a chiropractic treatment, Andy realigns your muscular and skeletal system to assist the body in working correctly. Mental and physical stress can be eliminated when these systems are aligned and in the correct positions.
5. Improved digestion
Many people experience gas, heartburn and acid reflux on occasion. This can happen because of misalignment of the vertebrae. Patients who implement Andy’s nutritional advice alongside their treatment are more likely to see improved digestion.
