Manage Everyday Stress with Chiropractic Care

Manage Everyday Stress with Chiropractic Care

Stress has become a reality of modern day living. Between longer working hours and a constant
stream of media, it’s easy to understand why a large percentage of the U.S. population feels a
significant impact from stress in their daily life. Many times stress symptoms can take a
backseat to more pressing medical concerns, but they shouldn’t be taken lightly. It’s important to
address the symptoms and reduce stress before more serious medical issues arise.

The impacts of stress:
● Can lower the immune system, opening the doors to infection.
● Can destroy brain cells, leaving one feeling absent-minded.
● Can encourage barriers to a restful sleep, leaving you feeling fatigued.
● Can cause your body to tense, leaving you with tight and painful muscles.

Unfortunately many people go through life with excessive stress and fail to treat the symptoms.
Chiropractic care, along with other healthy lifestyle choices, is an easy way to prevent and
manage the stress of everyday life.

Reduce Muscle Tension
Posture can have a great deal of impact on stress you’re putting on your body. This can be
anything from the way you hold yourself walking to sitting at a desk. Encountering stress will
enable you to tense your muscles even more, and over the course of time, this takes a toll. Your
chiropractor will help you work on posture exercises, and provide relaxation techniques that help
your body get into a state of relaxation to restore quality of sleep.
Restore Body Function                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Your spine is central to your neurological system, communicating everything you do. As stress
creeps in, your spine will begin to move. Regular appointments with the chiropractor can help
adjust your spine and restore function to your body; including immune system improvements,
more energy, and the feeling of less stress overall.
Review Your Nutrition
You may not correlate food with stress right away, but often times poor nutrition can put a large
amount of stress on your body. Good nutrition is a strong foundation for maintaining your health,
and chiropractors can help in this area with a nutrition assessment, providing guidance to best
practices and even supply nutrients your body may be lacking.
Feeling stressed? Ask for help. Chiropractors cannot rid you of stress completely, but they are
equipped with powerful tools, for both the mind and the body, that are helping patients better
cope with stress and improve their quality of life.

Children and Chiropractic Care for Healing

Children and Chiropractic Care for Healing

Chiropractic care has been used on children for over a century and proven to be effective in treating several types of disorders and symptoms specific to kids. Care for the central nervous system is central to chiropractic care, as a healthy system allows for optimal health in all other areas of our body. For children, a spinal misalignment, or stress on the nervous system, can cause issues such as: constipation, colic, ear infections, trouble sleeping, reflux, and so on.

Many parents, especially those who are chiropractic patents themselves, are seeking out chiropractic care for their children as a safe and natural form of health care.

Top 3 Commonly Seen Improvements:

  1. Improved Sleeping

Whether it’s falling asleep or staying asleep, child sleep disruption is a common complaint among parents that chiropractors deal with daily. Sleep disruption could be caused by a spinal misalignment that causes hormones, or other body functions, to be unbalanced. Safe and non-invasive alignments are an excellent first step to promoting healthy sleep habits and getting to the root cause of the sleeping issue.

  1. Improved Behavior

The core concept behind chiropractic care is to restore function of the nerve system, which is particularly important during child developmental phases. When there is stress or tension in the nerve system, caused by common childhood occurrences like birth, falls, and sports, behavior problems may arise. It can cause children to behave erratically, have difficulty concentrating, or experience unexplained meltdowns. Many parents with children experiencing behavioral and mood disorders, such as ADHD, have seen great behavioral improvements with chiropractic care as an alternative to psychoactive drugs. Regular check-ups encourage overall brain development by promoting proper awareness and avoidance of sensory disorders.

  1. Improved Immune System

A properly aligned spine promotes a healthy nervous system, specifically regarding natural flow and communication with the rest of the body. Misaligned areas can cause nerve pressure and a communication disruption with the brain. Clearing the communication paths means the brain is ready to make the best decisions for a healthy immune system. This is especially important for young children as their bodies depend on a healthy system for rapid growth and change.

Regular chiropractic care for children is a safe and non-invasive practice, founded on gentle adjustment techniques that can prevent and identify disfunctions resulting from spinal stresses. The goal is to provide overall health benefits that enhance the future function and well-being of your child. Chiropractic care, along with proper lifestyle choices, is a great foundation for proper growth, development and mental happiness.

Chiropractic Care as an Alternative to Opioid Use

Chiropractic Care as an Alternative to Opioid Use

Chiropractic Care: A Smarter Alternative to Pain Management

It’s no secret the United States is in the midst of a major opioid crisis, with over 2 million Americans now dependent on or abusing the pain pills. It’s a problem seen across many demographics, and regardless of how the pills got in their hands, millions are learning the severe consequences the hard way. For many suffering dependence or drug addiction, it all started with something very common: pain.

More than 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain, putting a growing emphasis on treatment options. As a nation, multiple resources are being allocated to combat the opioid issue and prominent healthcare figures are advocating for others to rethink the way we approach pain management, placing a spotlight on non-pharmacological therapies.

Opioids do help with pain. At first. They provide a quick-fix but, without additional treatment methods, do nothing more than mask critical pain signals your body is sending. Outside of potential addiction or dependence, when taking opioids patients can begin to believe their conditions are less severe than they really are and risk injuring themselves even further.

Here are 5 key reasons to consider chiropractic care as a first line of pain defense:

• Chiropractic care is non-invasive and drug-free, mitigating the risk of drug addiction, dependence, or harmful side effects.
• Evidence shows, chiropractic therapies reduce pain in musculoskeletal injuries, such as chronic neck and back pain.
• Rather than mask symptoms, chiropractic care aims to address the underlying causes of pain and resolve them for long-lasting pain relief.
• Chiropractic care costs significantly less than cyclical medical treatments.
• A 2018 study linked the use of chiropractic care with a 55% reduction in the need to fill an opioid prescription.

Stay informed and be sure to ask your doctor questions about all treatment options. While reports of patients turning to non-pharmaceutical treatments is on the rise, there are plenty of Americans continuing the use of Opioids for pain. Chiropractors are ready to help provide safe and effective care options to patients in pain.

Improve Your Quality of Life with Chiropractic Adjustments

Improve Your Quality of Life with Chiropractic Adjustments

When in pain, there are countless reasons people decide to seek out chiropractic care – from headaches, to lower back pain, and everything in between. However, seeing a chiropractor isn’t just about treating pain. Receiving regular spinal adjustments from a certified doctor means you’re taking care of your nervous system; benefiting your entire body and improving overall health.

Here are 7 unexpected benefits of chiropractic care you can experience everyday:

Maximized Immune System
Your nervous system is directly responsible for sending messages to and from your immune system. Any misalignments in your spine act as roadblocks, obstructing the line of communication. Chiropractic adjustments will open communication lines and allow your body to thrive on an optimal immune system.
Improved Mood and Mental Health
Our moods are regulated by our body’s chemistry. When there’s misalignment in the spine, pressure can go to your brain causing an imbalance. Spinal adjustments will balance out your entire system—including any chemical imbalance. Often people will turn to medications to alter brain chemistry, when simply re-aligning the spine can do wonders for their mental state.

Reduced Stress
If you’re suffering from a misaligned spine then chances are your entire body feels out of line, causing a great deal of mental and physical stress. With adjustments, you will feel an immediate relaxed sensation in your brain. Once properly aligned, you are much better equipped to manage outside stress from other areas of your life.
Improved Athletic Performance
Many athletes see their chiropractor on a regular basis, not just to treat sports-related injuries, but to enhance their overall performance. Even non-athletes can benefit from increased mobilization, eye-hand coordination, and balance in everyday living.
Increased Energy Levels
People suffering from chronic tension, often have become accustom to the pain. Our bodies work overtime, struggling with muscle strains and an inefficient nervous system, leaving us feeling fatigued. Chiropractic treatment allows the body to run without those added pressures, freeing up our energy to be used on other activities.
Improved Sleep
It’s estimated 50-70 million Americans suffer from a sleep disorder. Taking care of any underlying issues with regular chiropractic care can help improve quality of sleep. You’ll experience improved mental clarity and less pain, meaning you’ll often sleep more soundly and for longer periods of time.

Better Digestion
Similar to other systems in our body, the nervous system also controls your digestion functionality. Improper nerve alignment could signal acid production; resulting in gas, heartburn, and acid reflux. Along with a nutritious diet, helping your nerves work properly will often eliminate stomach issues.

While Chiropractic care is an excellent solution for treating pain, it is truly less about fixing problems, and more about aiding the body to perform healing. Seeking out regular care for your spine means you’ll reap invaluable benefits every day, helping you live a happy and healthy life.
