How Can a Chiropractor Benefit You?

Chiropractors have helped millions of people with low back pain, neck pain, whiplash, and other forms of discomfort and injuries. The chiropractic approach often alleviates further pain and disability without the need for drugs and surgery. This can make the difference between a life of happiness and well being or a life of pain, discomfort, and frustration.

As women are advised not to take any medications during pregnancy, chiropractic care is a very useful and effective alternative means of healthcare. As the body adjusts to make room for the fetus, pain can develop in a woman's mid and low back. Swelling and discomfort are also common in the future mother's extremities, such as her ankles. Regular chiropractic adjustments, following a prescribed treatment plan, can help relieve such pain and discomfort. Chiropractic care can also aid in the correction of certain pregnancy pelvic imbalances.

The greatest benefits of chiropractic come when it is used as a preventative tool. The spine's primary function is the protection of the spinal cord and nerve roots. Because chiropractic adjustments improve spinal alignment and function, they can also reduce stress and irritation of the spinal nerve roots, thereby promoting overall health and wellness.

Misalignment of the spine may result in nervous system dysfunction. Many symptoms that can occur from a dysfunctional nervous system include headaches, fatigue, vision problems, stiff neck, asthma, heart conditions, ulcers, and many others. Most of these symptoms result from malfunctioning of the vertebrae, known as subluxation, causing interference to nerve messages that run through your body and brain. These subluxations cause irritation of the delicate nerves and arteries, causing pain.

Following a regular chiropractic treatment plan results in your body being free of nerve interference and allows normal blood flow. Your body is then able to use its own inherent healing ability to maintain a state of health. When there is no nerve interference, your nervous system controls the healthy function of virtually every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body.
