3 Times You Should Get Chiropractic Care!
One of the basic principles of Chiropractic care is that misalignments in the spine create negative effects for many bodily and mental functions. After all, the spine is directly related to the Central Nervous System, which controls all of your motor functions - when the spine functions properly, the CNS functions properly,
Since spinal disorders can cause seemingly unrelated issues, there are a number of symptoms or medical conditions that should prompt you to seek Chiropractic care and to take care of your spine.
Here’s 3 specific times you should get Chiropractic care!
1. When You Feel Lower Back Pain & Sciatica
Lower back pain is very common these days. Many of us are living increasingly sedentary lifestyles - we sit for hours upon hours each day, making our hip flexors and hamstrings both tighter and shorter. The lack of general exercise in our day to day lives also causes the muscles in the lower back to become weaker over time. Weak lower back muscles, along with overly tight leg and hip muscles, make for misalignments in the body and in the spine. These spinal misalignments reveal themselves in the form of constant lower back pain. It’s one of the most common reasons for seeking Chiropractic care these days! So please, do not ignore your lower back pain and seek Chiropractic care right when you first feel it.
Sciatica is a result of irritation in the lower lumbar region of the spine. A common indicator of a sciatic nerve issue is pain that stretches from the lower back and travels through the thighs and down into the legs. The pain usually afflicts one side of the body, causing that side to be numb and weak.
Chiropractic care has been shown to be more effective, as well as safer, than drugs when it comes to treating sciatic nerve issues and sciatica related pains - studies by the American College of Physicians list manual manipulation among the first line of defense for lower back pain. This is what Chiropractic care is all about.
2. After An Auto Injury
If you’ve been in an auto accident, however minor it may be, it is always a good idea to seek Chiropractic care. Misalignments in the spine caused by the accident are manually realigned without the need for expensive and invasive surgical procedures.
Auto injuries such as whiplash, are best treated through Chiropractic care - Chiropractic care has been extremely effective against whiplash injuries as studies point out that 90% of patients reported improvement in pain management and range of motion, post accident, with Chiropractic care.
3. When You Have Restricted Range of Motion
Restricted range of motion, in any part of your body, is a telltale sign that something is not right with the natural alignment of the body. If you go on to ignore these restrictions in the range of motion, the body will adapt and adjust to it over time, causing the development painful symptoms in other joints and muscles across the body as they will have been under constant stress.
Whenever you have restricted range of motion in one part of your body, it causes misalignments in other parts of the body, including the spine.
Whenever you realize you have restricted range of motion in any part of your body, you should seek Chiropractic care.
