Chiropractic doctors diagnose and treat conditions that affect the nerves, joints, and bones in the body. Chiropractors can also improve a patient’s quality of life, and help patients achieve their wellness and health goals. Here’s a look at some of the benefits of chiropractic to help you decide whether chiropractic care is right for you.
Treating back pain and neck pain
According to the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association, low back pain costs the U.S. $100 billion each year in medical expenses, lost wages, and lost productivity. A chiropractor can help manage and treat both acute and chronic pain.
Improve mobility and range of motion
Chiropractors provide rehabilitative services for patients who have suffered injuries as well as patients who have been diagnosed with chronic health conditions.
For example, a chiropractic doctor can help patients with arthritis manage pain, reduce inflammation, and increase mobility.
Treating health problems without drugs or surgery
Patients who want alternatives to pharmaceutical drugs or invasive procedures can often benefit from chiropractic care. Chiropractors use non-drug and non-invasive methods such as electrical stimulation, heat and cold therapies, spinal adjustments, stretching, exercise, and lifestyle changes.
Promote an active lifestyle
It’s easier to stay active when you’re feeling fit and healthy. Joint pain, back pain, limited mobility, and depression can stand in the way of exercise and physical activity. Feeling healthier, moving better, and being more active are just a few of the benefits of chiropractic care.
Chiropractic care supports the body’s natural regenerative abilities. Additionally, chiropractors work with the patient to develop an individualized treatment plan that suits the patient’s specific needs, They then help you stay on track to achieve your health goals.
Improve your mood
Maybe pain prevents you from lifting your arm more than 90 degrees, or you’re stressed because low back pain keeps you out of the office. Chiropractic care focuses on whole-patient health, which includes both mental and physical aspects of your well-being.
Improve your quality of life
Decreasing the patient’s discomfort is the first goal. The end goal is to promote good health and an improved overall quality of life.
