Importance of Chiropractic Wellness Care

Once your body has fully healed, routine chiropractic care will help ensure that your physical problems do not return, and keep your body in peak condition. Just like continuing an exercise program and eating well in order to sustain the benefits of exercise and proper diet, it is necessary to continue chiropractic care to ensure the health of your musculoskeletal system.

When you make routine chiropractic care a part of your lifestyle, you avoid many of the aches and pains that so many people suffer through, your joints will last longer and you will be able to engage in more of the activities you love.

Chiropractic Wellness Care in Overland Park

Once the spinal tissues are healed and spinal biomechanics have normalized the patient will be recommended to continue with periodic spinal checkups. For some this might mean once per year, for others this may mean once per month or more. Chiropractic spinal checkups provide similar benefits to the spine that dental checkups provide to the teeth. Namely, catching minor problems and disturbances before they have the opportunity to cause pain, discomfort and irreversible tissue changes. Just like with cavities and heart attacks, irreversible tissue damage has generally occurred before the symptoms of spinal pain and discomfort become apparent.

Benefits of Chiropractic Wellness Care

1. Less pain. 

Many people suffer from chronic back or neck pain. Pain relievers can provide temporary relief, but they do nothing to fix the problem. Chiropractic adjustments address the origin of the pain.

2. Better posture. 

If you’re doing desk work, you’re likely sitting down for longer periods than our bodies were designed for. Sitting in front of a computer for hours often leads to slumping and bad posture, which in turn puts a lot of extra pressure on our neck, shoulders, and hips. Regular chiropractic care can put your spine back into alignment.

3. Fewer headaches. 

Roughly nine out of 10 Americans suffer from headaches. Since most headaches are linked to muscle tension in the neck, spinal manipulation and other chiropractic techniques can often effectively reduce headache pain.

4. Enhanced immune system. 

To fight off infections and disease, our immune system relies on messages being sent correctly through our nerves. When vertebrae go out of alignment, they can pinch a nerve, potentially blocking these messages. Regular chiropractic wellness care can relieve the pressure on the nerve and allow the immune system to work at peak efficiency.

5. Reduced dependence on medication. 

Because chiropractic care can relieve many types of pain without surgery, it can significantly reduce a person’s reliance on drugs. In fact, an estimated 96% of people with chronic back pain can be treated non-surgically.

6. Better mood. 

Traditionally, mood swings or depression have been treated with medication. However, that route can be expensive and may still carry a social stigma. Chiropractic adjustments improve the nervous system, which can repair the chemical imbalance that often leads to mood swings. By clearing obstacles in our nerves, chiropractic care can also help us think more clearly.
