Physical & Mental Benefits of Chiropractic

Chiropractic is about far more than pain management. It is about helping the entire body function as it should, and about helping patients live the best physical and mental life imaginable. The benefits of chiropractic extend far beyond pain relief. In fact, there are countless physical and mental benefits you can reap from regular chiropractic care. Read on to learn more!


The Mental Benefits of Chiropractic

When our body is functioning properly through a properly aligned spine, our mental state of mind also improves! Studies show that chiropractic helps keep patients mentally focused by alleviating the aches and pains of daily life that usually distract us. Sometimes we are aware of these distractions due to pain, and other times we are not! Either way, chiropractic can help us stay focused.

Chiropractic is also proven to help reduce stress and anxiety. When our spine is misaligned, it places strains on various parts of our body. These strains can manifest themselves through physical pain or mental stressors. When the spine is aligned, it helps the entire body function better. The brain can receive proper communication from the rest of the body’s nervous system. This improves the feelings of stress and anxiety many of us are often overwhelmed by.

Research also shows that life’s stressors can cause joint restrictions and subluxations. Shoulders feeling tense? Suffering from another headache due to stress? These aches and pains are likely due to your spinal joints becoming restricted in movement as your body tenses up. These subluxations not only wear you down mentally as you’re dealing with stress, but they can cause physical harm as well. Nerve communication is slowed. Your immune system suffers. You can become physically ill. Mental alertness decreases. Get help and relief from all of these and more through regular chiropractic care!

Gold Coast Chiropractic Can Help Provide Mental Benefits of Chiropractic

Studies show that regular chiropractic adjustments have amazing benefits on a person’s mental health. Through chiropractic adjustments, muscle tension is reduced, helping decrease stress throughout the body.

When one or more joints become subluxated in the body, it restricts movements and nerve communication throughout the entire body. This interruption impacts every cell, tissue, organ, and function in the body.

Dr. Paul Fisher at Gold Coast Chiropractic understands how powerful chiropractic adjustments can be for a patient’s mental health. As an expert in identifying subluxations in the spine and other joints throughout the body, Dr. Fisher can identify the source of dysfunction. Whether you’re suffering from pain, or not, subluxations can still exist. Chiropractic care helps safely, naturally, and effectively treat these dysfunctions and improve a person’s overall mental wellness!

The Physical Benefits of Chiropractic

Your spinal column consists of 24 independent vertebrae. These allow your body to twist, move, bend, and go though every motion throughout your day. That makes them pretty important to maintain, right?

These vertebrae also are home to your central nervous system, which controls and coordinates every function in your body. Your muscles, tissues, and organs all function because of your central nervous system. Knowing all of this, it makes sense that spinal health is critically important to overall physical and mental health.

When vertebrae become misaligned, it creates dysfunction in the body. These dysfunctions can cause pain, discomfort, poor range of motion, headaches, anxiety, you name it. Sometimes, these subluxations fly under the radar and just cause miscommunications between your brain and body. More often than not, these spinal subluxations present themselves in painful ways. The good news? Dr. Paul Fisher at Gold Coast Chiropractic, located in Chicago, Illinois, can identify and correct these subluxations so that your body can function as it should!
