Chiropractic Helps Much More than Back Pain
Hello dear fans of our Scarborough’s Chiropractic Family Wellness Center's blog. Although we are a multi-specialty medical facility, today we are going to focus on educating you about the multitude of health benefits you can enjoy by engaging in chiropractic care services here in Scarborough. You are going to be amazed to learn that chiropractic care is not simply a pain management science, but in fact is a holistic health science that positively affects everything from blood pressure to heart health. Read on.
While it is true that mostly every patient that enters a chiropractic office has some type of back pain – but this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to benefits of getting regular chiropractic adjustments. First, chiropractic can treat dysfunction and pain in many areas of the body, not just the spine. Although many issues can be traced back to the spine, we also treat shoulder pain, knee pain, foot pain, elbow pain, headaches, sciatica, and many other conditions!
One of the biggest benefits of chiropractic is it allows for a fully functioning nervous system! The nerves in your spinal column branch off to control your entire body. From your lungs, to digestion, heart function, stomach function, everything! Chiropractic removes nerve interference to these body systems by taking pressure off the nerves to allow an optimally functioning nervous system.
Chiropractic also increases range of motion and improves athletic and physical performance. By removing joint restriction and restoring proper muscle function and range of motion, chiropractic is key for athletes. There’s a reason every NFL and NBA team has their own chiropractor on staff!
Feeling stressed? Tired? Sick? Chiropractic has been shown to reduce stress and improve sleep quality, as well as improve immune system function! There is also research that a chiropractic adjustment to the upper neck can even lower blood pressure. So, whether you are in pain, feeling good and want to feel better, or just want to live a higher quality of life, chiropractic service here at Chiropractic Family Wellness Center is for you! Make that appointment today and feel a difference in your quality of life as early as after your very first visit!
