1. Improves Sports Performance
Doctor’s of Chiropractic effectively treat common sports injuries such as muscle strains, tennis elbow, pelvis sprains, back and neck pain, and more. Chiropractic for athletes often aims at relieving joint pressure and spinal adjustments to help prevent injuries and increase recovery times.
Whether you’re a CrossFitter, a gymnast, attend Zumba classes, run like it’s your job, or anything in between, chiropractic can help improve your sports performance by keeping your nervous system firing on all cylinders.
2. Alleviates Headaches
Chances are, you’ve experienced a headache multiple times in your life, and therefore know how miserable they are. Chronic headaches can be the result of spinal subluxations, and chiropractic treatment removes these subluxations — relieving pressure from the neck and spine — and treating your headaches at their source! This means that not only can chiropractic treat your headaches in their full force, but it can also limit the frequencys of their occurrence all together.
3. Stimulates the Immune System
The nervous system is directly correlated to the immune system and our overall health. If our nerves cannot openly communicate with our immune system do to subluxations in the spine, we find ourselves getting more tired and sicker more often. Chiropractic adjustments seek to remove these subluxations that cause communication throughout our body to slow, therefore helping our immune system to thrive!
Chiropractic care can be used throughout pregnancy to alleviate back pain, balance the pelvis, muscles, and ligaments, and to relieve pressure on the uterus. It also aids in the baby being born in a favorable position and reduces the risk of a cesarean section. 72 percent of women report relief from pain during pregnancy and labor when receiving chiropractic adjustments.
5. Reduces Chronic Pain
In the United States and Canada low back pain affects more than 10 percent of the population at any given moment. Low back pain is even the number 6 ranked reason as it relates to medical cost in North America alone, and this cost rises each year.
Chiropractic care is not only a more cost effective way to treat back pain that traditional medicine, but it seeks to treat pain at its source, not mask the pain through medication. Regular chiropractic care can remove subluxations and nerve interference responsible for chronic pain.
