I think we can all agree that our health is one of the most important factors in our lives. Society proves this will every gym, yoga studio, and vegan recipe you come across. We as a whole prioritize our health-and we should! But my question for you is how much of our health regime and routine is proactive and how much of it is reactionary? Chiropractic care is so much more than great natural alternative for back pain, and studies suggest that regular chiropractic care as a preventative measure is more effective! So, here are my top 5 reason to prioritize chiropractic care.
1.You deserve to be your best.
Ever have those days when you just don’t feel your best? Other than the a day here or there, you should not feel like that. Continually feeling like you are not reaching your full potential can be a sign of a compromised nervous system. About 90% of your nervous system is solely responsible for all the functions within our bodies. In chiropractic we detect and correct interference within your nervous system to not only enhance your potential to heal, but enhance your potential to thrive when it comes to your quality of life.
2.Better stress management.
Within Chiropractic we like to separate the stressors we experience into three categories. Those are Physical forms of stress, chemical forms of stress and emotional stress. Once our ability to incorporate and move through these stressors begin to decrease, we start to notice that our threshold to handle it also diminishes. This is when we begin to develop adrenal fatigue, anxiety, and sleep disturbances just to name a few. Consistent chiropractic care help improve your overall adaptability to these stressors by strengthening your ability to handle them. Pretty cool huh?!
3. Decrease expression of health challenges.
Have you ever though about what a symptom means? I mean REALLY means? Pain for example is a signal innately designed to notify us that there is an imbalance in our bodies somewhere. They symptom of pain is basically an alarm bell going off saying “Hey! we got a problem over here!”. But what most do is turn off the bell without ever finding out why it was going off in the first place. Chiropractic is great because it aims to fix the problem, not simply cover up the symptoms. Some common health challenges that be “symptoms” are pain, constipation, sleeping troubles, headaches, and allergies. If you have any of these its important to remember that what is common is not always normal
4. Boost immune system
Your nervous system and immune system are directly related in what is called the nuero-immune response. When there is Interference within your nervous system, the expression and potential in supply to the organs, glands, and tissues of the body is inhibited. This in turn compromises your immune system making you more susceptible to outside infections and invaders. Chiropractic care not only addresses this interference but has been shown to enhance immune function up to 48% ! Not to mention the affects of an adjustment can still be influencing your immune system up to 24-48 hours later. Getting your nervous system free of interference allows your immune system to thrive!
5. Increased energy and better mood
Ever heard of an attitude adjustment? Well, its pretty correct. Systemic inflammation has been linked to a number of disorders such as depression, anxiety, and irritability. One of the ways chiropractic care improves these conditions is by reducing inflammation in the body. Inflammation is a way for your body to heal and protect itself through a portion of your autonomic nervous system called your sympathetic nervous system. By calming the sympathetic nervous system, chiropractic care stimulates the parasympathetic for an overall better mood and increased energy. Think about it- it takes A LOT of energy to be in a bad mood. The parasympathetic nervous system’s whole job is to rest, repair, and grow however you need the energy to do so.
