Imagine waking up pain free and full of vital energy.
That’s what the benefits of chiropractic care is all about. Through regular adjustments of misalignments in the joints of your spine and body, you can alleviate many common ailments, like headaches, debilitating aches and pains in your neck, shoulders, lower back and sciatica. Routine spinal adjustments in addition to alleviating back and neck pain can provide positive changes in decreasing high blood pressure, alleviating the chronic pain of arthritis, asthma and chronic ear infections.
Studies have shown that chiropractic care can have other far reaching affects including the following:
- Bolsters the Immune System: Research from New York’s Preventive Medicine Institute revealed that patients receiving long term chiropractic care had immune systems that were up to 200% stronger than those individuals not receiving chiropractic care.
- Affects Mood: A preliminary study conducted in 2005 by the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research revealed that the increase in endorphins caused by chiropractic care can have an effect on symptoms of stress and depressions. Individuals who scored high on the Beck Depression Inventory had markedly reduced scores after undergoing chiropractic treatment.
- Boosts Cognitive Functioning: A 1997 study by the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that the cervical manipulation can effectively unlock neurological pathways that, when clogged, impair cortical functioning. Respondents performed much better on their assigned after adjustment.
