If you have ever sustained an injury or been ill for an extended period, you can appreciate the adage, “If you don’t have your health, you don’t have anything.” The fact is good health makes life easier and more fulfilling, so it makes sense to do what you can to achieve and maintain good health. Below, we highlight five benefits of chiropractic care that can help you maintain a healthy lifestyle and take advantage of the things that are most important to you.
1. Focused on holistic healthcare.
Chiropractors understand that the human body is complex and inter-related, and that changes in one area can affect other areas. They utilize an integrated comprehensive approach that prioritizes overall health. Treatment of the spine is only one part of this. Our chiropractors will listen to your health concerns, thoroughly examine you, and provide you with a range of treatments to aid in recovery, pain relief, and well-being. Our chiropractors will also encourage you to engage in a healthier lifestyle in general, as doing so will make you less prone to injury and able to heal more quickly.
2. Recommended in major medical publications.
Treatments performed by chiropractors — such as manipulation of the spine — have plenty of evidence of effectiveness. The American College of Physicians recommends that spinal manipulation be an option for those with low back pain in the Annals of Internal Medicine. Another review in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that spinal manipulation is effective for acute low back pain.
3. Works well with conventional medical care.
Our chiropractic clinicians deliver comprehensive care by working with our medical professionals. Research has shown that chiropractic care improves patient outcomes when added to standard medical care. The integration of care enhances communication and referral between providers and helps patients receive optimal treatment. Our team of highly trained professionals puts your health first by cooperating on your care.
4. Prioritizes preventative care.
In healthcare, prevention is vital to keep you as healthy as possible. Our chiropractors are happy to work with those suffering from pain, injury, or other acute problems, but the goal is to keep people pain free and healthy. Chiropractors may provide home exercises, nutritional advice, stretches, and a customized supplement program if necessary to keep people feeling good in the long term.
5. Emphasizes lifestyle factors.
If you have never been to a chiropractor before, you may be surprised just how thorough the treatment plan is. Our chiropractors will look at not only your current injury or problem but also at lifestyle factors including your diet, sleep patterns, and stress levels. Over time, the chiropractor can help you make changes to different facets of your life to achieve overall health. It is the focus on lifestyle, in addition to excellent treatment options for injuries, that makes a chiropractor a great partner on your quest to greater health.
