The success of chiropractic care can vary from individual to individual, and even from practitioner to practitioner; however, one fact emerges: beneficial patient chiropractic results are evident across a broad swath of physiological and mental processes.
But, what does that mean? What can chiropractic care offer the patient in practical terms? Here are some of the results:
Less is always more when it comes to the need for medications. Chiropractic patients take fewer medicines because they feel healthier. They need fewer pain medications, muscle relaxers, sleep medications, and medications for other medical conditions, thus resulting in fewer side effects and dependency.
Stronger immunity system
The immune system is a body’s first defense system against sickness, immune diseases, and infection. Chiropractic care results in a stronger immune system, meaning better health, fewer ailments and a lower frequency of sick days.
Better posture and spinal flexibility
Better posture keeps bones in proper alignment, which creates bone strength and in turn creates a framework for efficient muscle usage. An aligned spine means the ligaments have less stress and the joint surfaces won’t wear abnormally. Damaged joints are a common cause of pain, including arthritis, bursitis, rheumatoid arthritis, sprains, strains, and other aches.
Spinal flexibility reduces the incidence of injury and improves health and vitality overall.
Better and more restful sleep
Better sleep translates to a host of health and energy benefits, including better memory, creativity, less depression, a healthier heart, less stress, fewer accidents, and more.
Improved nervous system function
A poorly aligned spine results in poor nervous system function. Nervous system function through unobstructed pathways results in better health and fewer problems with the endocrine system, which produces hormones and neurological functions.
Improved mobility and natural pain relief
Chiropractic care will improve mobility and provide natural pain relief, thus reducing the need for painkillers, steroids, muscle relaxers, and other chemical intervention. Natural health enhancement means better health overall, reduced anxiety, and fewer expenses for prescription and OTC medications.
People who are concerned about the functions listed above, who believe some of the benefits described are things that could enhance their life, should consider chiropractic care. Patients who have access to chiropractic care enjoy better overall health, increased energy and a better quality of life than non-chiropractic patients. The type of treatment, as well as the frequency and intensity, will vary not only from patient to patient but also are a reflection of the health conditions affecting the patient who comes seeking chiropractic relief.
