I am a big advocate for chiropractic health, and I’d love to share a few reasons why! Visiting a chiropractor on a regular basis has multiple benefits, and once you have been going for a while you will start to notice a difference in your health and body functions. Below are a few great benefits to chiropractic health, so keep reading if you have been contemplating visiting a chiropractor for the first time!
1. Back and Neck Pain
One major benefit to chiropractic health is the relief of back and neck pain! Even if you just slept the wrong way, or have a couple of knots in your neck from bending over a desk all day, a chiropractor can ease this tension for you. If you suffer from arthritis and chronic joint pain, being adjusted will help ease or remove the pain entirely!
2. Sinus and Allergy Relief
Do you suffer from sinuses or allergies? Whether they are long-term or seasonal, a chiropractor can help you get over them in a rush! Depending on how badly your condition is, a chiropractor may not be able to completely remove your symptoms. But sometimes that pressure relief is a welcome thought in the thick of allergy season!
3. Menstrual Cramping
I used to suffer from painful periods and terrible cramping every month. After discussing my troubles with my chiropractor, he was able to adjust me so that my periods were lighter, less painful, and more regular! Talk with a chiropractor if you suffer a similar fate.
4. Better Sleep
After being adjusted, you will sleep like a baby! If you continue to be adjusted on a regular basis, you will notice a huge improvement in your sleep patterns. The same is true for infants. If you have a baby or tot that just won’t sleep through the night, try visiting a chiropractor. Stick with it; you may need more than a visit or two to see results.
5. Expectant Mothers
If you are expecting a little one, I can’t even begin to explain the endless benefits that seeing a chiropractor will hold for you. Less back and hip pain, less strain on your neck, and healthy breast milk production are a few good things that come from being adjusted while pregnant. If your baby is breech, there are certain adjustments that can help baby turn! And of course the tension release is amazing, as any expectant mother who has been adjusted can tell you!
6. Digestive Aid
Sounds crazy, but yes, chiropractic health aids digestion and bowel movements! Your spine is the center of everything in your body, since everything is connected to the spine. It makes sense that realigning your spine helps smooth out every other body function and speed up the process!
7. Runners Issues
My husband and I both run, and our chiropractor has been a large help to us in this area. Besides diagnosing certain problems you may face with knees and feet, a chiropractor can provide solutions and helpful tips to make your runs go more smoothly. We get our feet and knees regularly adjusted, as well as stretching out our leg muscles, and it really makes a difference in our runs!
8. Getting over Sickness
Battling a cold that’s been around too long? Fighting off strains of the flu? Feeling a bit under the weather? Go see a chiropractor! Getting adjusted greatly speeds up the healing process and helps you to build up a better immune system as well.
9. Stress Release
Perhaps one of the most relaxing benefits to chiropractic health is the stress and tension release you experience with each adjustment. Whether it’s from a long day at work, heavy lifting and packing, or just an emotional weekend, being adjusted will literally “lift a weight off your shoulders”!
I’ve been seeing a chiropractor for over 7 years now on a regular basis. Chiropractic health has made a big impact on my life, and to be realistic, these are only a few of the benefits. Have you ever seen a chiropractor before? Please share your own thoughts on chiropractic health!
