5 Reasons to Make Regular Chiropractic Care Your New Year’s Resolution
With millions of Americans across the country setting powerful resolutions for their New Year, there is one that often goes overlooked is the commitment to regular chiropractic care. While chiropractic care is a powerful single-session form of treatment—one session can alleviate persistent back pain and discomfort, reduce spasms in muscles, clear headaches and migraines, and much more—the most transformative results come from regular chiropractic care.
“Regular” chiropractic care may be different for each individual. Depending on your initial appointment in which the many variables of your body and lifestyle are assessed by your expert chiropractor, “regular” may range from three appointments a week to one appointment every two weeks. Chiropractic care is highly variable and individualized for each person, which is one of its greatest strengths as a form of customized treatment, but to get the most of your time and expert’s care, regularity and consistency are important parts of the chiropractic treatment plan.
If you weren’t already convinced, here are 5 reasons to make chiropractic care your New Year’s resolution—and to commit to it regularly!
#1. It supports your overall health and all other fitness and wellness practices.
While many are under the impression that chiropractic care is just for injuries, accidents, or poor posture, that’s simply not the case. Chiropractic care is a wonderful holistic intervention intended to produce not only local effects on an imbalanced area, but global effects to your entire anatomy. Regular chiropractic care increases your comfort and mobility in your body, naturally improving every facet of your life experience from athletic performance to simply sitting easily in a chair.
Unlike modalities that are designed exclusively for rehabilitation, chiropractic care is complementary to virtually every other form of treatment and all kinds of lifestyles. Whether you’re recovering from an accident or injury and need specific support to help accelerate the healing journey, or whether you are just looking to improve your baseline of health and see how agile, clear, and mobile you become, chiropractic care is the right choice.
Chiropractic care serves as an excellent complement to a regular fitness routine, a curated diet, a meditation or yoga practice, a recovery or rehabilitation program, or an anti-aging or youth-inducing focus.
#3. It decreases stress, inflammation, and immune fatigue.
Chiropractic care is a powerful modality for decreasing stress, inflammation, and immune fatigue—all of which contribute to chronic disease and a vastly decreased baseline of health. If you find that you are regularly ill, suffering with a chronic condition, constantly exhausted, or simply no longer at the peak of your health and wellness, chiropractic care is for you.
Through a variety of treatments including adjustments, spinal traction, and manual manipulation, chiropractic care helps to nourish and rebalance the neuromusculoskeletal system. The neuromusculoskeletal system comprises the nervous system, the muscular system, and the skeletal system—all of which are deeply interconnected and interdependent. When the neuromusculoskeletal system is functioning properly, the bones and joints are aligned, the muscles of the body are relaxed and flexible, and the nervous system is producing reliable, constant, and powerful signals across the body. The neuromusculoskeletal system is an indirect but influential player in immune function, hormone production and regulation, circulatory efficiency and respiratory function. When balanced through regular chiropractic care, the positive effects can be astounding—”random” symptoms often disappear as the body systems reset and synchronize with one another to become more highly functioning.
#3. It improves your cognition and clarity.
One of the lesser-known functions of chiropractic care is its effect on cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the body and brain. Research shows that after an adjustment or other manual manipulation delivered by an expert chiropractor, CSF in the brain increases significantly.
The purpose of CSF is to not only provide cushioning and insulation to the brain, but to also provide nutrients and oxygen while facilitating detoxification of dead cells and cellular waste. This makes CSF an invaluable player in brain function, particularly for athletes and those struggling with cognition, aging, decreased circulation and reduced activity.
A chiropractic adjustment or intervention can help produce similar effects in the body as significant movement and physical activity. This means that a single chiropractic treatment can improve circulation of CSF, improve cardiovascular function, decrease stagnation, and improve immune function. For individuals who are primarily sedentary, this can be a huge boon, as it can help produce the clarity and chemical effects so positively associated with exercise, all while improving the body’s current condition.
#4. It can increase your lifespan thanks to its posture-correcting effects.
Did you know that there is a correlation between upright posture and lifespan? Research shows that individuals with upright posture tend to experience longer and healthier lives, typically boasting a higher quality of life, as well.
Chiropractic care is best known for helping correct misaligned bones and joints, but what most people don’t realize is the incredibly therapeutic compounded effect of this type of care. When bones are joints are realigned in the body, this doesn’t just eliminate back pain, neck pain, migraines, headaches, scoliosis, and a series of other concerns—it also improves the function of nearly every system in the body, resulting in greatly improved quality of life and potentially even lengthening the lifespan.
#5. It can help stave off future issues with arthritis, poor posture, misalignment, etc.
Many people seeking out chiropractic care do so for a particular reason: back pain, neck pain, migraines and headaches, scoliosis, sciatica, nerve pain, fatigue, stiffness and poor posture are all common symptoms for which people seek out chiropractic care. In addition to helping provide relief for all of these conditions, expert chiropractic care can also help stave off future degeneration and pain.
Expert chiropractic care can vastly improve or eliminate symptoms of pain and discomfort related to a host of conditions, but one of the greatest benefits of chiropractic care stems from its ability to help stave off future problems in the neuromusculoskeletal system. Regular care improves spinal and joint alignment, increases nerve flow, improves muscle tone and function, and positively impacts all other body systems.
