There are many powerful effects of realignment that can benefit people of all ages. You should visit a local chiropractor if you are having any back or neck pain, problems with sleep, have been in a car accident, sustained a sports injury, experience chronic migraines—the list goes on and on. However, if there is one purpose that should bring you to see a chiropractor above all else, it should be prevention.
Spinal realignments are gentle manipulations done to realign the vertebrae in your spine, which allows for effective communication. When any part of this system is misaligned, or there are “subluxations” it causes disruptions in the way your nerves and cells communicate throughout your entire body. This causes pain in your body and can even lead to illness and disease.
Read on to discover what realignment and chiropractic adjustments can help treat and prevent.
One of the effects that surprise many people is that it helps correct not only physical problems, but mental and emotional ones as well. Because chiropractic adjustments and manipulations primarily target the sympathetic nervous system, which plays an integral role in your body’s “fight or flight” response, it can also help control the activity of it. Large amounts of stress can decrease the function of your immune system, which can lead to illness or disease.
Most people don’t realize they have misalignments until they come see us for a postural screening. One of the greatest effects of posture screenings is allowing people to see for themselves the shape of their spine or how the smallest occurrences — a fender bender, sitting too often, or even using their smart phone — can cause misalignments.
Decreased Risk for Injury
One of the most important effects of chiropractic adjustments and manipulations is that they help distribute the pressure placed on joints and muscles in your body that reduce your risk for injury. With regular visits, your chances of pulling a muscle or sustaining a sprain are significantly reduced. In addition, chiropractic care can help speed your recovery time if you are injured.
People are able to see (and feel) major benefits after just their first visit. Because this form of care deals with the spine and central nervous system, the power house of your body, making sure it is properly balanced and functioning at its optimal level is crucial to maintaining health and wellness.
