A professional chiropractic adjustment offers many health benefits and can help minimize pain and other issues. Statistics reveal that around 7.5% of the global population suffers from back pain, but chiropractic adjustments can help with back pain relief in Orem. During a chiropractic adjustment, a chiropractor manipulates your vertebrae, which can have extensive positive effects on your body and mind.
Following are some reasons to get a chiropractic adjustment.
Lowers Blood Pressure
Apart from back pain relief, a chiropractic adjustment can help manage hypertension. Studies indicate that the effects of the treatment can last up to six months after the adjustment sessions. Lower blood pressure can help reduce other issues too, including:
Reduces Neck and Lower Back Pain
Neck pain is a serious problem for many people, and oftentimes the cause is a pinched nerve. If it’s your vertebrae that are pinching the nerve, a chiropractic adjustment in which the doctor snaps the bones back into their correct positions can help.
The causes of back pain are innumerable — especially lower back pain. One reason for back pain is your spine being out of alignment. Using their hands, our chiropractors will evaluate your spine’s alignment and make adjustments as necessary to relieve pain.
Relieves Pain from Scoliosis
Scoliosis is the abnormal curvature of the spine, which can cause mobility issues, breathing difficulty and pain. A chiropractic adjustment can help relieve pressure that the bones are putting on the nerves.
A chiropractic adjustment is not a substitute for scoliosis treatment, but it can help relieve pain while you are receiving treatment.
Inflammation can cause extensive discomfort, joint issues, muscle pain, spasms and more. It can also cause issues such as cardiovascular complications, chronic pain and even cancer. Fortunately, a good chiropractic adjustment can help reduce the effects of these issues.
Improves Symptoms of Neurological Issues
The applications of a chiropractic adjustment aren’t entirely physical. Adjustments also increase blood flow to the brain, helping neurons function better and maximizing mental performance. Additionally, adjustments promote relaxation and reduce stress. A chiropractic adjustment may help with depression, anxiety, ADHD, OCD and other conditions.
