The best way to avoid major medical interventions, be they pharmaceutical or surgical, is to maintain a healthy body. Proactive (or preventative) maintenance involves a healthy diet, adequate rest, and regular exercise, but maintaining optimal health also involves additional assistance from specialists within the community. Chiropractors can help ensure proper body alignment, which helps to keep everything in working order. Chiropractic adjustment is useful for all people, the same way regular check-ups are ideal for bicycles and motor vehicles.
Need more convincing? Here are the 10 top benefits of chiropractic adjustments:
1. Increased energy levels
By reducing pain, increasing comfort and catalyzing healthier sleep patterns, regular chiropractic patients can expect higher levels of energy, better moods, and greater productivity.
2. Elevated athletic performance
The body is a machine, and when it’s out of alignment, it’s less coordinated, less efficient, and more likely to break down. Chiropractic adjustments address both the front and back ends of athletic performance, reducing the risk of injury and alleviating pain and muscle tension, respectively, which is why more than half of all NFL teams employ chiropractic staffs.
3. Scoliosis treatment
Not only can chiropractic adjustment help arrest the progression of scoliosis without the hindrance of braces or threat of high-risk operations, but it can also improve scoliosis curvatures and reduce pain symptoms.
4. Money, money, money
By improving circulation and organ function and reducing pain sources and symptoms, chiropractic adjustments can be an affordable alternative to increasingly expensive pharmaceutical treatments, surgeries, and hospital visits.
5. A more comfortable mind
We live in our heads 24/7, so it's better when our brains don't feel like battlegrounds. Hundreds of studies have found chiropractic treatment helps relieve, prevent, and minimize the impact of headaches and migraines. Even if you're not regularly afflicted with headaches, you may find chiropractic treatment upgrades your cognitive confines from roadside motel to Shangri-La.
6. Auto accident recovery
Automobile accidents typically involve impacts of force and velocity beyond what the human body is designed to endure. Automobile accidents are jarring to the central nervous system and can often shift the spine as well as other joints out of alignment, leading to greater bodily degradation if untreated. Even if symptoms are not immediately recognized, it's important for those involved in crashes to receive a comprehensive spinal evaluation. And now that most auto-insurance companies cover chiropractic visits in the wake of collisions, there's no reason not to take the precaution.
7. Infant care
While it's a lovely thing to have been born, for most of us it wasn't easy. Childbirth is often a painful experience for mother and child (we know some dads who might claim a sliver of that collective trauma too). The healthy development of an infant's central nervous system, immune system, and respiratory system can all be aided by the gentle care of specialized chiropractic infant care.
8. Childhood development
Chiropractic care is essential for preventing and recovering from injuries during the most critically formative years for the body. Even in the absence of injury, chiropractic adjustments help optimize spinal growth and nervous system function.
9. Increased happiness
By relieving stress, anxiety, and physical discomfort, chiropractic treatment tends to improve moods, mental health, and overall quality of life. Feeling good in your body, rather than trapped inside it, is liberating to say the least.
10. Immune system boost
Long-term chiropractic patients experience a significant boost to their immune system, again preventing the potentially harmful and certainly expensive intervention of drugs, operations, and time sidelined from work and pleasure.
