About 35 million Americans have chiropractic treatment each year, seeking solutions for pain, stiffness, and other health issues. Still, plenty of people don’t know what chiropractors do or how chiropractic care might benefit them.
With years of expertise, our providers ensure every treatment is customized for each individual’s symptoms, medical history, goals, and lifestyle. Here are five ways chiropractic care at Spruce Health Group could help you lead a healthier life.
#1: Relieve pain
Relieving painful symptoms is perhaps the primary reason why people seek out chiropractic care. Chiropractors specialize in optimizing nerve pathways essential for managing pain in all areas of the body.
Many people find chiropractic treatment is especially beneficial for relieving back pain, chronic headaches, sciatica, and even pain in the arms and legs. And because chiropractors are focused on treating the underlying cause of pain, you won’t need to rely on pain relievers that can have several unpleasant side effects.
#2: Prevent future pain
Regular chiropractic adjustments can play an essential role in maintaining spinal alignment and preventing inflammation and nerve irritation that are the sources of a lot of musculoskeletal pain. By making chiropractic visits a part of your healthy lifestyle, you can help prevent alignment problems that contribute to pain throughout your body.
#3: Improve sleep
Many people who have chiropractic adjustments report feeling more energized immediately afterward, once the source of pain and inflammation is finally addressed. All that pain relief also leads to better sleep so you can feel rested, refreshed, and more focused. Better sleep can also help prevent other serious health problems, including cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke.
#4: Improve immune function (and overall wellness)
Your nervous system plays an essential part in managing your immune system, which helps your body fight off disease and heal after an illness. Regular chiropractic visits help keep your nervous system functioning optimally by relieving nerve compression and irritation that can interfere with normal nerve signaling.
#5: Relieve inflammation
Acute inflammation is part of your body’s natural healing and immune responses. But sometimes, inflammation becomes ongoing or chronic, and that’s when it can lead to serious medical problems like heart disease, stroke, and even some types of cancer. Chiropractic adjustments help relieve inflammation by optimizing nerve signaling throughout your body. Plus, hands-on therapies reduce tensions and inflammation around the spine and other joints, as well.
Patient-centered care optimized for your life
Even though chiropractic care often focuses on your spine, the care chiropractors provide can affect a lot more than your back. Regularly seeing our team is a good way to enjoy better health at every age so you can go without the need for drugs or invasive medical treatments.
