You may only think of calling a chiropractor when you have a backache or when you’ve been involved in a car accident. If so, you’re missing out on the many ways your chiropractor can help you improve your overall health and wellness.
Chiropractic care is based on the understanding that, when given the opportunity, the body and mind can heal itself. This means that your chiropractor can help your body and mind recover from much more than you may realize.
Here’s a quick look at just a few of the surprising conditions your chiropractor can treat.
- Migraines and tension headaches. Approximately 90% of the American population suffers from headaches on occasion. Whether you suffer from nagging, dull headaches or migraines that cause debilitating pain and even nausea, your chiropractor can help.Research indicates that spinal manipulation is effective in the treatment of tension headaches and headaches that originate in the neck. Study participants suffering from migraines also report experiencing noticeable to substantial improvement following a period of chiropractic treatment.
- Fibromyalgia is a painful disorder characterized by widespread sensitivity and pain throughout the musculoskeletal system. Many sufferers experience fatigue and sleep or mood disturbances as well.One study found that 60% of fibromyalgia sufferers experienced a significant reduction in pain and fatigue and improvement of sleep quality, and ongoing research indicates that chiropractic adjustments improve nervous system function in fibromyalgia patients.
- Decreased immunity. The immune system, nervous system and endocrine system are closely linked and work together to create the appropriate responses that allow the body to heal appropriately.Subluxations, or misalignments in the spine, prevent messenger molecules from traveling throughout the body property and can cause poorly communicated immune responses. Your chiropractor can detect and eliminate subluxations through chiropractic adjustments, improving the responses of the immune and nervous systems.
