7 things you need to know about chiropractic
Chiropractic works on the simple principle that good spinal alignment leads to improved health, better performance and less pain.
However, chiropractic extends much further than just this simple principle. Whether you’re brand new to chiropractic, thinking that it might be good for you or have had adjustments for years we’ve put together the following so you can discover all you need to know about chiropractic.
Chiropractic improves emotional, physical and mental wellbeing
By promoting self-healing and balance within the body, regular chiropractic adjustments, when hand in hand with a healthy lifestyle, improve our emotional, physical and mental wellbeing. We often find our clients develop a greater awareness of their bodies and their environment through regular adjustments. In doing this they actively strive to improve their wellbeing therefore reducing physical, chemical and emotional stress.
Chiropractic ensures a fully functioning nervous system
Our nervous system is the master controller of our bodies. If it’s blocked, not functioning correctly or struggling to communicate with our other key systems then this all manifests itself as symptoms throughout our body – whether it’s poor sleep or back pain. The nervous system controls and regulates every single cell in your body, hence interference to this important system can have a negative effect on health or performance. Chiropractic treats the cause not the symptom and improves your body function and health while reducing pain.
Chiropractic will help you move better
Chiropractic is often regarded as a treatment solely for back problems, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. It is based on the idea that by maintaining good spinal alignment, and therefore clear and healthy pathways to and from the central nervous system, the body’s ability to self heal is improved. This means we can move better, more easily and in a more natural way.
Chiropractic improves your posture
As well as improving body movement, Chiropractic also improves posture. A recent article in the American Journal of Pain Management said: “Posture affects and moderates every physiologic function from breathing to hormonal production.” Poor posture can affect digestion, elimination and breathing. Alongside this, most fit and healthy people have good posture to go alongside it.
Chiropractic relieves pain
By treating the underlying causes and improving body function, chiropractic can bring fantastic pain relief. It helps relieve physical tension in the muscles and emotional tension in the mind. In doing this, the body works more effectively and pain is reduced.
Chiropractic helps improve your sleep
Spinal problems or underlying issues can all affect the quality of our sleep. Rest, recovery and a good night’s sleep are essential to better wellbeing. Chiropractic, along with many other factors, can help improve the quality of your sleep.
Chiropractic gives you more energy
By moving better, having a fully-functioning nervous system, sleeping better and being in less pain, our clients find they have much more energy as a result. Good energy levels are big factors in wellbeing and self-esteem. Active and energetic people usually feel healthier, stronger and much better about themselves.
