Promoting Overall Wellness through Chiropractic Care
People often think they should only visit a chiropractor if they’re experiencing chronic pain or stiffness in their neck or back. But you can do so much more for your health by promoting overall wellness through chiropractic care.
What Exactly Is “Overall Wellness”?
Chiropractors believe in using a holistic approach to health – their goal is to study and treat the whole body to help relieve your pain. They often use spinal adjustments or manipulation to correct issues, but they also teach you exercises or stretches that will help each pain, and may encourage you to change your diet and physical activity to promote health.
But overall health is not just limited to your body; your mind must be kept healthy as well. Cerwin Clinic of Chiropractic addtionally offers acupuncture to help you achieve a better mental state. Acupuncture can also be used to help you eliminate bad habits, such as smoking or overeating.
How Your Body Benefits From Chiropractic Care
The health of your central nervous system is vitally important because it sends messages between your brain and spinal cord. It helps your body move and respond to sensations, like extreme heat. Chiropractors know a lot about the central nervous system, and they understand that a misaligned spine can interfere with its important functions. Often treating one issue leads to relief in other problem areas. If, for example, you visit a chiropractor for your stiff neck but you don’t bother mentioning that your hands have inexplicably been getting numb, you may find after several sessions that your neck feels better and the numbness in your hands has disappeared.
Regular chiropractic visits may also help lower your blood pressure and improve your body’s ability to heal itself more easily after injuries or certain illnesses. You can also learn to better manage stress and attain better overall psychological health.
Best of all, chiropractic treatments are drug-free, generally pain-free and can leave you feeling more relaxed.
