Why Should I See a Chiropractor?
Here are 5 reasons to make an appointment with your Chiropractor
- Joint or Muscle Pain
- You Sit for Long Periods of Time
- Chronic Back Pain
- Limited Range of Motion
An aching head can be caused by a number of reasons: dehydration, malnutrition, oxygen deprivation, or there could be a misalignment in the neck, spine, or skull.
A Chiropractor can help relieve headaches, improve the blood flow to the brain which will increase the amount of oxygen supplied to the brain.
Headaches often result from a fall, accident, or rapid collision, as in sports. These headaches can be relieved through Cranial Chiropractic adjustments.
2. Joint or Muscle Pain
If you experience pain in your muscles and joints a Chiropractic visit should be your first reaction. If your first experience is a dose of Advil you are only masking the problem. A Chiropractor is trained to make sure your body is functioning at your optimum level using spinal adjustments to relieve pain in your joints and muscles.
Spinal adjustments increase blood flow and nerve conductivity to the joints and muscles that are experiencing pain.
3. You Sit for Long Periods of Time
It doesn’t matter if you are sitting doing needlework, reading, hanging out with friends, or typing at a computer, it is not uncommon to wind up with very poor posture. Poor posture very often leads to back pain.
Your pain may be due to problems with the musculoskeletal alignment.
Pressure caused by sitting may cause the discs and bones to shift enough to cause a slipped or herniated disc.
Even if you don’t feel any major pain now your spine is becoming misaligned. A chiropractor is trained to make sure your spine is aligned correctly, so you don’t have problems further on down the road.
4. Chronic Back Pain
This is the most obvious sign that you need to make an appointment with your Chiropractor. There are multiple factors that contribute to back pain: poor posture, how long you’re on your feet, and what kind of work you do.
A Doctor of Chiropractic can provide you with pain relief with the need for invasive surgery or narcotics.
5. Limited Range of Motion
This may not cause you any pain, but it will cause you a great deal of frustration. Everyday tasks you used to be able to do will no longer be doable. You may not be able to turn your neck far enough to check for traffic without turning your whole body. And you may be turning your whole body and not be aware of it, be conscious of your movements.
Chiropractic adjustments realign the bones and joints, increasing the range of motion and helping the body to function optimally.
There are many other reasons to see a Chiropractor, especially if you are active or want to live a more Health Conscious Life.
