How Chiropractic Can Help Your Overall Health

Family in parkIf you are trying to make improvements to your overall health and enhance a healthy lifestyle, it can be hard to know where to start. Improving your diet, physical activity, and getting adequate sleep are all important components of a healthy lifestyle. However, you can also enhance your health in other ways. For example, chiropractic care can have positive benefits across multiple facets of your life.

As a chiropractor in the Chesapeake area of Virginia for more than 20 years, I have helped many patients enhance their health with chiropractic care. In this article, I will share with you some surprising ways in which chiropractic can help your overall health.

Chiropractic Benefit #1: Reduced Pain and A Healthier Spine

Many studies have shown that chiropractic can improve your pain, ranging from low back pain to headaches. However, chiropractic can also treat the underlying mechanical spine problems that cause pain in the first place. This includes spinal conditions like herniated discs, sciatica, and even scoliosisEarly treatment can help both treat and prevent pain.

Chiropractic Benefit #2: Improved Energy and Mood

Studies show that chiropractic adjustments cause your body to release feel-good hormones like neurotensin, oxytocin, orexin A, and beta-endorphin. These hormones lift your spirits, giving you an improved sense of well-being after a chiropractic session.

Chiropractic Benefit #3: Improved Coordination, Balance, and Range of Motion

Good balance, coordination and range of motion go hand-in-hand. They are crucial to helping you maintain an active, mobile lifestyle and avoid injury. Chiropractic can help you improve all three by optimizing your spinal alignment. This is important because spinal alignment problems can increase your risk of pain, weakness, and injury which can harm your balance, coordination and range of motion and allow you to move your body with ease.

Chiropractic Benefit #4: Reduced Stress

A chiropractic adjustment causes many different biophysiological changes in the central nervous system. An adjustment impacts the nerves that manage sensory information in your brain and spinal cord, helping them send messages more efficiently throughout your body. This has a direct effect on your body’s stress response, making you feel less stressed after a chiropractic session.

Chiropractic Benefit #5: Better Nutrition

Chiropractors are trained in overall lifestyle management and take a whole-health approach to wellness. Your chiropractor can help you make dietary changes that support your health goals, and learn abouthow much water you need to support healthy discs in your spine.

Chiropractic Benefit #6: Improved Lifestyle Modifications

As part of a whole-health approach to your wellbeing, your chiropractor can help you identify changes you can make in your daily life. When put together, these changes can help you achieve better health. For example, chiropractors are trained in how to help you improve posturestretchingsleep, and even how to choose the best shoes for your back health.

Chiropractic Benefit #7: Reduced Reliance on Medications

Studies have shown that chiropractic care can reduce the amount of pain medication such as opioids that people take. All medications have side effects, and stopping unnecessary medications is important for your health. This is especially true when the medications in question are pain medications, which can increase your risk of abuse, addiction, and dependence.

Chiropractic Benefit #8: Improved Athletic Performance

Top athletes have relied on chiropractic care for years to help them remain at the top of their game. Not only do major athletes regularly see chiropractors, but many sports teams have chiropractors on staff. As of 2002, 31% of National Football League (NFL) teams had a team chiropractor. In addition, the U.S. Olympic team retains chiropractors.
