Beyond Back Pain: 7 Ways Chiropractic Adjustments Can Improve Your Health and Well-Being

Chiropractic care has become so popular that about half of the U.S. population has received chiropractic care at some point in their lives. And there's good reason for it, too. In addition to remedying your back pain, chiropractic care can provide you with a host of other benefits for your health. 

At Scott Wagner Integrated Medicine, we’re dedicated to providing you with holistic solutions for your whole body health. That’s why we’ve compiled this helpful guide to the seven ways that chiropractic care can benefit you. 

1. Lower your blood pressure 

According to the Journal of Human Hypertension, chiropractic care significantly lowers blood pressure. The technique that we use produces a decrease in blood pressure that’s equivalent to taking two blood pressure medications at once.

2. Treat your headaches 

Migraines are actually one of the most common conditions we treat. Many patients find that regular chiropractic care can help to treat the severity and the frequency of migraines and tension headaches.

In one study, it was found that 25% of individuals who had a chiropractic adjustment experienced a 90% drop in the number of headaches they experienced. 

3. Trigger your body’s natural healing abilities

Chiropractic care focuses on your whole body health. We look at things like how frequently you exercise, your diet, your sleep schedule, and your environment. By keeping your body functioning optimally, chiropractic care helps you prevent and resist disease rather.

4.  Promote good mental health

Chiropractic care has been shown to improve symptoms of anxiety, depression, and stress. Adjusting your spine also causes your body to increase its production of the hormones that increase your happiness, like cortisol, oxytocin, and neurotensin.

5. Help you sleep

Studies show that chiropractic care can improve your sleep hygiene as well. Whether you’re struggling with fatigue or insomnia, chiropractic care may be able to help you.

6. Alleviate your neck and shoulder pain

Chiropractic care also relieves neck pain. We perform a neck adjustment to improve the mobility of your spine and restore your range of motion. This also helps to improve movement and flexibility in your adjoining muscles and joints, so we can also treat any shoulder pain you may be experiencing.

7. Reduce inflammation

A common source of muscle tension, joint issues, and pain is inflammation. Chiropractic adjustments help you reduce chronic inflammation, lower back pain, and joint pain.
