Chiropractic care is a very popular alternative to traditional medicine. Contrary to popular belief, visiting a chiropractor isn’t only for people who are experiencing back and movement problems. In fact, back pain and mobility issues are often symptoms of a different, underlying problem. While chiropractic care uses hands-on techniques including spinal manipulation to reduce your pain, it also has much wider benefits for your general health and wellbeing. Here’s what you need to know about the benefits associated with chiropractic care.
Many people dislike taking pain medications, as using drugs to relieve your discomfort only provides temporary relief and doesn’t actually deal with the root cause of the problem. This means that you are unlikely to see any significant improvement, and in fact, may become reliant on taking pain medications on a regular basis to avoid discomfort. Discovering and treating the cause of the problem is the only way to achieve a long-term improvement in your condition. Chiropractic treatment doesn’t involve the use of pain medications.
Kinesiology takes ordinary medical practice to the next level because rather than simply dealing with the symptoms of a problem and alleviating them, it focuses on discovering their cause. Kinesiology is the scientific study of body movement with the purpose of identifying and treating common health problems that aren’t caused by disease or pathological symptoms.
In practice, kinesiology uses safe, highly accurate muscle testing techniques to find problem areas in your body. The reason for this is that when we have a functional imbalance in our posture or movement, our bodies automatically try to compensate for it. It’s these compensations that trigger the symptoms that cause us to seek medical help.
Chiropractic care has been shown to benefit a wide range of areas of health and wellbeing. This is because most chiropractic techniques involve the spine, which houses the central nervous system which is responsible for all body functions. This means that in addition to tackling the problem that was causing your symptoms, you could also experience a range of other pleasant side effects from your chiropractic care, which could include:
Better quality of sleep
Wider flexibility and range of motion
Stronger immune function
Easier to maintain weight
Lower blood pressure
Better fitness and cardiovascular health
Clearer cognitive function
The list of potential benefits from regular chiropractic appointments is extensive, and our team would be happy to explain these to you.
Since no two patients are the same, treatments need to be tailored to your specific needs in order to be effective. Our chiropractic team takes the time required to comprehensively analyze your condition using kinesiology practices. This helps them to better understand not just your symptoms, but what is causing them. We can then create a treatment plan that applies unique chiropractic protocols and targets the underlying triggers. This ensures that you receive the most effective care based on your personal requirements.
