You’re probably aware that chiropractic care is a proven, effective and natural method of resolving symptoms such as neck pain, back pain and headaches – did you know that chiropractic care also helps care for patients suffering from poor blood pressure, sciatica, inflammation, vertigo and even help parents with colicky babies?
Chiropractic care offers a myriad of positive benefits without the stress or risks of surgery or drug therapies. For many, it is a natural path to lifelong wellness.
Let’s review some of these lesser-known benefits of chiropractic care:
IMPROVED BLOOD PRESSURE
The Human Journal of Hypertension showed that a chiropractic adjustment could give people suffering from high blood pressure the same effect as taking certain high blood pressure medications and, that the effects of the adjustment could persist for up to 6 months after the adjustment.
High blood pressure medications can have negative side effects such as: fatigue, nausea, dizziness, anxiety & weight changes. Wouldn’t a natural option that avoids negative side effects be something worth considering?
Sciatica refers to pain that radiates from your lower back down your legs because of a damaged or pressured sciatic nerve.
For many patients, this type of chronic pain has led to over-medicating and even drug-dependency. Chiropractic treatment can help relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve that is causing your sciatica without drugs. Patients receiving adjustments often report reducing the number of pain days they experience and they often experience a reduction in the severity of their pain.
Inflammation is one of the top causes of joint pain. Did you know that chronic inflammation is a leading factor in diseases like cancer, heart disease and conditions such as lethargy and obesity? Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to reduce inflammation, which can lead to a number of positive benefits such as reducing your risk of developing diseases that are linked to high inflammation.
COLIC, ACID REFLUX & EAR INFECTIONS IN CHILDREN
Chiropractic care can significantly improve certain conditions that affect children.
Colic causes near constant crying and fussiness in young children and babies as a result of abdominal discomfort and gas. Colic can be extremely difficult to treat, which can result in an uncomfortable baby and exhausted parents. Adjustments have been shown to help improve infantile colic symptoms.
Acid reflux and ear infections can be helped too. It’s thought that the nerves in the brain and back along with the nerves in the gut and head are particularly sensitive. When these are affected, it can result in conditions like acid reflux and ear infections. A chiropractic adjustment can help to improve what’s known as the gut-brain connection, which is why chiropractic adjustments might help these types of conditions.
This improvement can also boost the immune system, which can help prevent infection.
A chiropractic adjustment can help target joints and vertebrae that aren’t moving correctly. This could help reduce vertigo episodes. An adjustment can also help fix your body’s natural balance, which can also cause vertigo if it’s misaligned.
Chiropractic treatment can be a safe and effective means of improving your health and wellness through non-invasive, drug-free treatment.
If you or your loved one is experiencing any of these conditions, chiropractic care may help.
