For example, chiropractic care is a natural pain relief solution with many applications.
Chiropractic treatments can:
Reduce tension headaches—Headaches often originate in your neck.
Do you have tension in your shoulders and neck? If so, you’re like millions of Americans. This tension can travel up your neck and cause your head to ache. Researchers at the Duke University Evidence-Based Practice Center in Durham, NC, found that spinal manipulation from chiropractic care gave immediate relief to participants.
Relieve arm, neck and back pain – Due to the thousands of nerves connected to the spine, many of these common and chronic pains are due to misalignment that can be corrected with chiropractic care. We’re talking carpal tunnel syndrome and other pains brought on by repetitive tasks.
Boost your immune system – Your immune system and your central nervous system are closely related. When your spine is out of alignment, it puts stress on other parts of your body to compensate. This which irritates your nervous system and weakens your immunity. When your spine is within alignment, you feel good and your immune system is strong.
Minimize Sciatic Pain – The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body. It runs down the back, through the buttocks and into the lower leg. It can feel like pins and needles or numbness in the foot or leg. Chiropractic care reduces the pressure on your affected muscles or organs to relieve your pain.
Treat Allergies – Food and seasonal allergies are indications of a weakened immune system. (Do you sense a theme here?) Sublaxation is a term that refers to your bones being out of place. When your spine is out of alignment, it affects everything else including your nervous system. Many of my patients with seasonal allergies find natural treatment with chiropractic care.
Your body is a sophisticated instrument requiring regular maintenance to stay healthy. When you choose healthy foods, plenty of sleep and exercise and natural pain relief, you may find you have plenty of energy and stay healthier.
