4.) A more affordable option for chronic back pain sufferers
Medications can only help back pain so much. Once you go off the medications the pain normally comes back because medication used to treat back pain just mask the symptoms temporarily.
Adjustments can provide more long-term solutions. They are a noninvasive and cheaper alternative to conventional treatments.
A 2016 study found that chiropractic treatment was just as cost-effective as conventional treatment for chronic lower back pain.
5.) Boost Energy
When you have tension in your spine and on the nerves it puts a tremendous amount of stress on the body, draining your energy reserves as your body struggles to adjust. This can cause our bodies to feel run down and tried. Chiropractic adjustments can remove all this tension freeing your body to run as it was designed to. So instead of your natural energy reserves being depleted by stress, you’ll have more energy available for your life.
6.) Improved Digestion
There are nerves that run through your spine that control how your stomach functions and how your body digests food. If there is dysfunction in these nerves it can interfere with your digestion and may trigger your stomach to produce more acid. This can lead to heartburn, gas, and acid reflux. An adjustment can help relieve pressure on the nerves so your stomach can function optimally.
7.) Boost Your Immune System
Most don’t realize that your immune system is directly related to your spine.
At times, dysfunction in the spine can disrupt your body’s natural mechanisms for fighting off illness, increasing your chances of becoming sick. A Chiropractic adjustment aids your immune system and may temporarily boost it.
8.) Reduces Inflammation
Inflammation causes pain, joint problems, and muscle tension. Chronic inflammation can lead to many problems like heart disease and cancer.
A chiropractic adjustment has been shown effective at temporarily reducing inflammation.
This in turn may help ease joint pain, reduce muscle tension, and relieve back pain.
9.) Effective For Sciatica
Sciatica is normally caused by an irritated nerve. Pain radiates down your lower back to your legs because of mechanical or inflammatory pressure on the sciatic nerve.
This is a very painful condition that forces many people to take pain killers and lose time from work.
Studies have shown a chiropractic adjustment can be effective at treating sciatica.
