Chiropractic care than gaining simple relief from back pain - it's a natural, whole-body approach to healing that doesn't employ invasive surgeries nor risky drugs.
Let's dive into 5 amazing truths about chiropractic care:
1. It's Not Just for the Back
A common misconception is that Chiropractic care is just for the back and neck. Not true! Chiropractic Care is effective in treating a host of issues beyond headaches and joint pain such as poor sleep, stress relief, a stronger immune response, better balance, reduced blood pressure, improved digestion and more. Chiropractic even helps treat colic, acid reflux and ear infections in young children and babies.
2. Treating the Root Cause
Many pain relief medications will only attack the symptoms and not the source. Chiropractic adjustment services, on the other hand, will aid in reversing some of the causes of the pain. "Is chiropractic care a cure-all?" No, but it can assist in healing a broad range of health and body issues. Your nervous system controls things like the body's reflexive responses, breathing, and even the slightest movements that we make. Good spine health is critical to our overall well-being.
3. Complementing Other Treatment Procedures
Managing chronic pain is challenging because there will be what seems like never-ending relief and treatment procedures involved. Different therapies exist to help in the relief and cure of chronic aches and pains like oral medications, nerve blocks, and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). With chiropractic care, there is no involvement of drugs and it complements just about every therapeutic care in existence. However, it's always important to get a consultation from your health care or medical practitioner before taking multiple therapeutic and treatment procedures.
4. Non-Invasive, Low-Risk Treatment
Perhaps the most common adverse effect acquired from chiropractic services is some soreness in the area of the adjustment.Some might even experience mild and temporary fatigue or headache after a chiropractic procedure. However, these effects are minimal and temporary as compared to the ultimate goal of re-aligning and re-adjusting the body's spinal and nervous systems. Think of it like when you exercise after taking a long time off. Initially, your body is incredibly sore despite the fact you are bettering yourself and heading toward a healthier lifestyle.
5. Drug-free Solutions
Medications bring both positive and negative effects, as well as significant risks. Instead of reaching for those medicines, consider scheduling an appointment with a chiropractor. Studies show that chiropractic care can help reduce pain often more effectively than drugs and without the risky side-effects. It can assist in the relief or even the treatment of some health and body issues like sciatica, neck pain, ear infections, scoliosis, lower back pain, headaches, and frozen shoulder syndrome.
