Here are the top five most common benefits of chiropractic treatments:
1. Decreases Pain
First and foremost chiropractic treatments are great at relieving any type of musculoskeletal pain. Whether you suffer from headaches, neck pain, low back pain, or sciatica; you can likely experience benefits from chiropractic care. Many of us are under the impression that having some type of underlying pain is just a part of getting older, but that could not be further from the truth. Oftentimes those nagging aches and pains have a relatively simple solution and can be resolved after only a few visits. Chiropractic treatments are also one of the most affordable options for treating musculoskeletal pain.
2. Improves Mobility
Examining your range of motion and overall mobility is one of the main focus areas during a chiropractic examination. The more mobile you are, the least likely you are to experience discomfort in performing your day-to-day tasks. Increased mobility helps with daily tasks that can be as simple as putting on socks and shoes, putting on a sweatshirt or jacket, or even making it easier to check your blind spot while driving. Chiropractic treatments help with mobility by not only helping improve joint motion, but also by helping to release tension and build up in the surrounding muscles.
3. Helps Support Relaxation
In today’s society it is hard to find someone who doesn’t need to reduce their stress levels and incorporate more relaxation into their lives. Chiropractic care can help with this in a few different ways. Chiropractic treatments help not only with reducing muscle tension and improving mobility, but there is also some interesting research showing how it directly affects how your body processes stress. Chiropractic care can help with this by directly affecting your nervous system to help shut down your ‘‘fight or flight” response that we experience when we’re feeling stressed. By getting you out of that “fight or flight” response you may notice increased mental clarity and ability to focus, improved digestion, better mood, and increased efficiency in day-to-day tasks!
4. Improves Sleep Quality
Do you toss and turn at night? Do you feel like once you lay down your mind starts to race? Are your arms always falling asleep? Chiropractic treatments may be able to help you! When you undergo chiropractic adjustments it helps relieve muscle tension and helps with general mobility, which makes it easier to get more comfortable. If you are one of those individuals who experiences the ‘arm falling asleep’ sensation, having muscle tension release and improving mobility can help to either greatly decrease that sensation, or get rid of it altogether. In addition, you may also experience a significant stress reduction which can help you to quiet your mind at night and fall asleep faster.
5. Supports Better Breathing
Chiropractic treatments can have a profound effect on the way that you breathe. The average person takes around 10,000 breaths every day. Your breathing is fundamental to almost every process within your body, and if you are not breathing properly you could be suffering from some adverse complications. With every breath you take, not only does your rib cage expand and contract, but some of the muscles in your neck will work to help you inhale and exhale. If you are like most Americans and have a really tight upper back and neck, you may not be able to breathe as well as you could. Not being able to get enough oxygen can lead to increases in stress, anxiety, and poor circulation just to name a few.
