Preventative health is an afterthought for most of us. Due to our medical-based model of healthcare, we do not think about taking any action with our health until a problem occurs. However, it’s both possible and important to prevent those problems before they show up. Chiropractic care is perfect for doing just that! Some people think that it’s just for back or neck pain, but it’s much more than that. In this article, we will explain how chiropractic care is the perfect choice for your preventative health routine.
Chiropractic adjustments have a multitude of effects on your body! They’ve been proven to reduce inflammation, boost your immune system, and help the body to heal itself. When your spine is healthy and aligned, your muscles are flexible and strong. Your circulation is strong and regular, and your immune, digestive and other systems are also functioning properly. With your body in such great health, you can prevent many of the disorders that take shape as illnesses. The tricky part is that misalignments in your spine are not easily identified. Consider them a “silent killer”. They often go unnoticed until a symptom comes out of that nerve interference over time.
In a 2002 study, a group of people between 24-26 years old were examined. Half of the participants had neck and should symptoms, and the other half had no symptoms at all. Astonishing results were discovered using an MRI to examine the participants. In that entire group of people, 87% of them had disc protrusion, 73% had disc degeneration, and 63% had disc annular tears. However, only only half of them had symptoms! This is why it is important that we don’t base our health on symptoms alone, but on the structure, nervous system, and its function.
When your nervous system functions interference free, YOU function at a higher level and therefore have a higher quality of life!
