Maintaining a healthy spine is crucial for overall great health. Here are the top five reasons it might be time for you to visit your Chiropractor.
1. Back Pain
Back pain can result from injuries sustained in a car accident or can result from something as simple as lifting something heavy. Strained muscles and ligaments, ruptured disks, irritated joints, poor posture, and excess body weight all can lead to chronic back pain.
Whether a dull, throbbing pain or a blinding pain combined with nausea, a headache is something no one wants to endure. Headaches may be triggered by specific foods, neck pain or external stimulation.
3. Behavioral Disorders
While behavioral and brain disorders such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder or ADHD, have known treatments and medications, not all treatments and medications work the same for each person. In the case of ADHD, the pattern of inattention or hyperactivity that disrupts day to day functions varies from patient to patient and thus makes it difficult to prescribe an effective, ongoing treatment. However, research shows chiropractic care may help.
Women carry extra weight during pregnancy. This extra weight often contributes to health problems such as frequent back pain, a misaligned pelvis, and even undue stress on the uterus. To help promote a healthy pregnancy, the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association recommends women receive chiropractic care throughout pregnancy to promote proper pelvis alignment and reduce stress on the uterus. Always talk to your OBGYN prior to beginning any chiropractic care.
5. Sports Performance/Athletes
Athletes put a lot of stress on their bodies regardless of the sport they play. From the hard hits sustained in football or the increased stress on joints during gymnastics to the repetitive motions of a baseball pitcher, sports leave their mark on the body. Chiropractic care can provide relief for a variety of joint and muscle symptoms.
