Chiropractic and Healthcare

Many of us only get in to see the doctor when we’re sick and feeling miserable. Wouldn’t it be better to avoid the sickness altogether and see a doctor to maintain wellness? Preventative care through chiropractic is the solution; it costs much less to prevent sickness and disease than treatment for it. Think of all those prescription medications and sick days you’ll get to skip!

Chiropractic care can boost your immunity:  A healthy immune system should be able to fight off most bacteria and viruses it comes into contact with, with only minimal assistance from antibiotics or other drugs in emergency situations. The nervous system controls the functions of every cell, organ and tissue in the body. A subluxation/misalignment can reduce the ability of the immune system to talk to the brain. Chiropractic care realigns the spine, freeing up the immune system and the brain to communicate, allowing the body to fight off intruders. Studies show that people who practice chiropractic maintenance have fewer colds and diseases than others.

Chiropractic treatment increases your energy. It’s able to do this in two ways, by reducing tension in the spine, and by freeing the nerves to work more effectively. Many times we’ve been sore and tense for so long that we don’t even notice it. Pain becomes normal to us. As our bodies struggle with muscle aches and pains and an ineffective nervous system, we find ourselves feeling run down and tired. Chiropractic adjustments remove all the pressure, freeing the body to run as it was designed to.

Chiropractic care can help you breathe better. The lungs are just like every other part of the body in that they rely on nerve function to travel unimpeded from the brain to the spinal cord. A misalignment/subluxation in the wrong regions of the spine can lead to lung abnormalities like asthma. Correcting subluxations can help reduce inflammation in the lungs and increase our ability to breathe properly.

Chiropractic adjustments can improve your digestion. The nerves that run through the spine also control your stomach and its functions. If the vertebrae in this area are improperly aligned, the nerves can begin signaling a need for more acid production, resulting in gas, heartburn, or acid reflux. It could also result in not enough acid production and difficulties in digesting foods. A chiropractic adjustment can help the nerves in the spine work properly. The end result is frequently the elimination of stomach problems and improvement in feeling of wellbeing.
