Benefits of Chiropractic

Stronger Immune System

Chiropractic patients are less susceptible to illnesses and disease such as colds, influenza, cancer, pneumonia, and inflammatory disease such as fibromyalgia and eczema.

Studies show that people under chiropractic care have a 200% greater immune competence than those who have not received chiropractic care. Both serum thiol levels and CD4 cell counts (both important immune system components) are higher in people who are under chiropractic care.

More Energy

There are many reasons why people under chiropractic care experience higher energy levels. The main reason is that when we adjust the spine we take pressure off the nerves. Since the nervous system is the energy system and electrical system of your body, if any interference due to misalignments or subluxations of the spine occur, energy flow is decreased leading to fatigue and lack of energy.

Better Focus and Brain Function

One of the first things a majority of patients notice when starting chiropractic care is they have less “brain fog.” They can think more clearly and gather thoughts together more easily. This is because when we remove subluxations or spinal misalignments, we restore proper nerve flow from the spine to the brain and change slow, depressive brain waves to faster more productive brain waves.

Less Pain

By far, the number one reason people seek out chiropractic care is to get rid of aches and pains. Chiropractors are very successful in finding the underlying cause of pain and correcting the cause. This is usually accomplished with a thorough history taking, possible x-rays, thorough examination and computerized nerve scans. Chiropractors adjust the spine to remove subluxations, or spinal misalignments, which are the cause of the problem. Many people choose to stay under preventative chiropractic care because they know that it helps keep their pain from returning and they have a better quality of life.

Prevent and Decrease the Progression of Arthritis

Subluxations are misalignments in the spine that put pressure on nerves. When vertebrae or bones in the spine misalign, or become subluxated, they don’t move. The only way the joints and the discs get nutrition they need to stay healthy is through proper motion.

When joints or vertebrae don’t move properly over long periods of time, discs start to degenerate and bulge and bone spurs start to form. This is called osteoarthritis.

As chiropractors, we remove subluxations and restore proper joint function. As a result, chiropractic prevents and decreases the progression of arthritis. Read more about arthritis here.

Studies Show Chiropractic Costs Less

A growing body of scientific evidence indicates that chiropractic care is often less expensive — and more effective — than medical options. Below is a sample of this groundbreaking research:

In a recent study comparing chiropractic to traditional medical approaches to low-back pain, chiropractic was found to cost less when chiropractors were the first doctors visited (Med Care 1996; 34:191-204).

Miron Stone, PhD, and colleagues at Oakland University poured over data on 395,641 patients with one or more of 493 different conditions. Roughly one quarter of these subjects were cared for by doctors of chiropractic. The study found that, “Patients receiving chiropractic care experienced significantly lower health care costs.” Specifically, chiropractor’s patients saved approximately $1,000 each year over a two-year period (J Manipulative Physiol Ther 1993; 16:291-9).

One study looked at 3,062 worker’s compensation claims for low-back pain. The analysis compared the cost per case of claims treated by medical practitioners to similar claims cared for by chiropractors. The study concluded that the compensation costs of claims for injuries treated by medical practitioners were 10 times the costs of those handled by chiropractors (J Occup Med 1991; 33:847-52).

Kids Under Chiropractic Care are Healthier and Happier!soccer-kid

Kids who are under chiropractic care see medical doctors less often for illnesses such as sinusitis, allergies, otitis media (ear infections), colds and flu! As a result of fewer illnesses, chiropractic kids miss less school and are better able to excel in their studies.

As a parent, knowing that the nervous system controls and coordinates everything, having your child checked for misalignments or subluxations is very important to keep them functioning at their best. Keeping your child’s nervous system free of interference with chiropractic care will keep your kids healthier and happier.
