For my latest post, we have a guest post from Dr Kira Capozzolo, DC of Twin Waves Wellness Center. She has been kind enough to write a post for us on the 3 reasons to visit a chiropractor! Enjoy!!
Whether you’re a professional athlete or a computer engineer, your body endures a certain amount of stress by simply existing on this planet. We are constantly walking on different surfaces, moving and lifting objects, and sitting for long periods of time. Fortunately, there are healthcare specialists out there that can help us balance out the different stresses that affect our bodies.
Chiropractors are specialists of not only the spine but the entire body. Did you know that chiropractors can perform light adjustments on your hips, elbows, feet, and wrists? Chiropractic care was designed to relieve stress and pain from different parts of the body. Many people don’t consider visiting a chiropractor until they’re physically in pain. Chiropractors treat injuries and help prevent future ones. You can maintain your health and live life feeling great by experiencing consistent chiropractic care.
Here are the top 3 reasons to visit a chiropractor and unlock your body’s greatest potential.
1. Enhance Your Mood
Pain can seriously impact your mood. If your pain is severe enough, it could send you into a state where it’s the only thing you can think of. Chiropractors specialize in treating the root cause of pain. They don’t simply slap a band-aid on the issue or prescribe medication. They look at the entire body as a whole. Oftentimes, if you’re experiencing pain in a particular area of the body, it can be caused by an issue in another part of your body. Chiropractors seek to provide the most immediate pain relief possible, while also solving the main issue at hand.
Chiropractic care also helps to calm down the nervous system, which influences many different aspects and functions of our bodies. Stress has a direct impact on our nervous system. When we are stressed, emotionally or physically, our nervous system works in overdrive to combat it. A chiropractic adjustment helps increase blood flow throughout areas of stress, which allows injuries to heal faster and more efficiently.
2. Improve Your Posture
Do you find yourself constantly bending down to pick things up around your house? Or maybe your job requires you to constantly look downward toward your laptop or smart device. In this digital age, many people suffer from poor posture from long hours at their desks and little exercise. Over time, you can develop a curve in your spine from staring down at a computer or phone screen. If not corrected, a curved spine can cause different forms of neck and upper back pain.
Chiropractic care can help treat posture issues, helping you feel taller and stronger throughout your day. Typically, a chiropractor takes posture measurements and scans before starting you on a specialized care plan. This way, they know what adjustments make sense, where to do them, and how many times to perform them. Chiropractors also help people regain proper posture outside of the office. They provide posture tips and advice, making it easier to practice good posture throughout your day. This may mean taking a break from texting here and there!
3. Get Better Sleep
Stress and pain are sleep’s worst enemy. Multiple nights of poor-quality sleep can turn into a vicious cycle of stress on the mind and body. Sleep is the primary time that our body uses to recover from the day. Without good sleep, our bodies can break down over time.
Chiropractic care enables the body to sleep well at night by correcting misalignments in the back and other areas. A common reason that people can’t sleep well is an imbalance in the hips and lower back. Chiropractic adjustments help balance out areas of your body, like your hips, that constantly endure the impacts of walking, jogging, and running.
Sleep Better, Feel Better, Live Better
Life is not meant to be lived feeling ‘off’ or in pain. It’s vital to invest in your health. We all only have one body. By visiting a chiropractor, you help unlock your body’s greatest potential. When you feel good, other things in life begin to click. Chiropractic care helps people improve their posture, feel happier, and recover more efficiently. Live life optimally by investing in wellness practices like chiropractic care.
