5 Surprising Health Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Written By Pro Care Health Center on December 18, 2018

You may know that many people have found pain relief and stiffness in their joints after receiving chiropractic care. But there are many other benefits that you may not be aware of. 

The 5 Most Surprising Health Benefits of Visiting a Chiropractor

There are many health benefits of seeing a chiropractor, but these are some that might surprise you.

1. Overall Optimization of Physical and Mental Health

If you’ve ever suffered from chronic or long-lasting pain, you’ll be aware that it takes a toll on your mental health. It is often one of the causes of depression in patients and also anxiety. Relieving the pain often reduces the depressive symptoms. 

A qualified Chiropractor who has years of experience in chiropractic care, our practice’s Dr. Shaw is able to teach you how to achieve the maximum physical health benefits from your chiropractic treatment plan.

2. Weight Loss/Maintenance and Increased Energy Levels

Many of our patients find that once the symptoms and restrictions of their conditions are removed, they are able to engage in more physical activity. This often results in weight loss.

Weight loss can often lead to increased energy levels as your body is carrying around less weight during the day. 

3. Improved Nervous System Health and Functioning

Your body’s nervous system controls its living cells, tissues, and organs. Your spinal column encases your nervous system and is responsible for protecting it.

Any structural problems in your spinal column can cause irritants and damage to the nervous system. Studies have shown that spinal manipulation improves function in the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems. 

4. Reduced Risk of Injuries and Falls

As we get older, it’s common to experience more falls and injuries around the home. Often, our balance can be affected by medical conditions, medications, or even reduced eyesight and hearing.

Chiropractic care restores previously lost coordination, balance, and mobility. This makes your body stronger and more aligned which reduces your risk of accidents around the home.

5. Reduced Pain and Symptoms in the Extremities

A pain or tingling in the fingers can have several causes, but often it’s a result of damage or restriction in another area of the body. 

Chiropractors work with the whole body as a system and have an advanced knowledge of how each part of the body interacts with other parts. They can ease symptoms in the hands for example, by manipulating part of a shoulder.

How to Experience These 5 Health Benefits and More

Regular Chiropractor visits are an essential part or your healthcare, just like yearly visits to your Doctor’s Office and visits to your Dentist every 6 months.
