The benefits of chiropractic treatment extend beyond relieving chronic back and neck pain, but they are unexpected perks for most patients.
When someone visits a chiropractor for the first time, it is typically due to spinal pain. Yet, once the pain has subsided, many of them continue to see their chiropractor because of the additional unexpected gains they grow to love.
What is Chiropractic Treatment?
If you break “chiropractic” down to its root words, you get “cheir” and “praxis,” ancient Greek words meaning hand and practice, respectively. Knowing this clarifies what licensed chiropractors do: they use manual manipulation to treat various conditions – hands-on techniques to help their patients achieve optimal neuromusculoskeletal health.
How Can a Chiropractor’s Services Help You in Unexpected Ways?
The neuromusculoskeletal system includes the nervous, muscular and skeletal systems. Therefore, chiropractic intervention impacts all the systems involved with the sensation of pain with a single modality. As a result, you can experience gains beyond pain relief with regular chiropractic treatments. These include the following:
Resolved Nerve Impingement Issues and Reduced Inflammation
Nerve interference happens if the body’s nerves are unable to function correctly. Mostly, this is due to inflammation around the nerve. Chiropractors restore nerve function, thereby resolving nerve interference when manipulating the body to relieve pain (the problem causing inflammation).
Resolved Skeletal Misalignments
A chiropractor conducts scientifically calculated and meticulously planned adjustments to resolve skeletal misalignments. Indeed, they are known for moving bones and joints back into place, but usually, patients have alignment issues in unexpected places.
Alleviated Muscular Tension and Strain
Chiropractic care helps relieve muscle strain because it affects numerous systems simultaneously; tension and stress reduction anywhere in the body directly impacts the muscular system. For example, skeletal misalignment is a common source of muscle tension because it causes muscles to overwork to correct the resulting imbalance.
Improved Homeostasis (a Healthy Balance) of All Body Systems
Restoring the body’s primary systems to total health has a beneficial ripple effect on the rest of the body – most often the immune, respiratory and digestive systems.
Energy and Mobility Boost
When the spine is aligned correctly, the body’s neurological system can send more robust and accurate signals, the muscles loosen as they relax, and the aligned bones increase mobility. Together, these factors boost energy by eliminating fatigue-causing problems.
