5 Surprising Health Benefits of Seeing a Chiropractor

Written By North Florida Spine and Wellness Institute on March 4, 2019

Chiropractic care aligns your spine through mostly hands-on manipulations (traditionally), which helps with all-over healthcare. By aligning your spine properly, your chiropractor will assist you with pain reduction in all parts of your body and assist you in having better posture.

The Health Benefits of Chiropractic Care 

Pain management may be the most common reason for visiting your chiropractor. When you throw your back out hitting the links, your chiropractor is probably your first stop. Pain management isn't the only benefit of regular visits to get adjustments – there are some other health benefits of chiropractic care you might not be aware of.

1. Lowered Blood Pressure

Studies have shown that chiropractic adjustments help lower both diastolic and systolic blood pressure readings. Whether your high blood pressure is being caused by stress and anxiety, or something else, your chiropractor can help.

2. Increased Athletic Performance

The reduced tension you experience from a spinal adjustment frees up your nerves, muscles, and joints, giving you more energy. Not only does the increased energy from this treatment help you get more work done, but it's also beneficial in fitness and athletics. Adjustments also help prevent injuries.

3. Improve Your Digestion

Chiropractic care adjusts your spine, and your spine is connected to your nerves. This means that have your spine adjusted helps with health in all parts of your body, including your gut. It helps with digestion, including flatulence, acid reflux, and even constipation.

4. Boosts Immune System

A good spinal adjustment helps all of the systems of your body flow more smoothly, which helps you fight off colds and viruses better when you come down with something. It seems that people that visit their chiropractor on a regular basis get fewer colds.

5. Overall Wellness

You can expect overall health and wellness when you visit the chiropractor on a regular basis for adjustments. Expect better health from head to toe – from freedom from headaches to less pain when you're walking along the Florida beaches.
