Chiropractic treatment is an alternative therapy used to treat and heal certain ailments of the body via joint and spinal column adjustments. There are a variety of positive attributes associated with chiropractic treatment, however there are 3 top benefits that an individual can reap by receiving chiropractic care at Lake Pointe Chiropractic and Wellness Center.
1. Improved Range of Motion
If you suffer from sore, stiff joints due to an acute injury or a degenerative disease such as arthritis, chiropractic care can restore your joints via gentle manipulation. The gentle manipulation stimulates blood flow and promotes an increase in synovial fluid that joints require to remain mobile and flexible.
2. Promotes Restful Sleep
Chiropractic therapy can help you attain restful sleep by correcting sublaxations in the spine. Sublaxations happen due to a misalignment of the spine which can cause a reduction of blood flow to the brain. Sublaxations also cause the brain and spinal column to miscommunicate which causes the lack of sleep and a heightened level of stress. Chiropractic treatment corrects sublaxations in the spine and increases blood flow to the brain. The increased blood flow via massage therapy and chiropractic adjustments will encourage proper communication between the brain and all the healing functions that occur during sleep.
3. Reduces Stress
Our bodies have a “stress response” mechanism. Once that stress response is activated, it can be difficult to switch off. Chiropractic care works via joint manipulation to send specific signals to the brain to turn off the body’s stress response. By de-stressing the body, you prevent over production of stress hormones that interfere with metabolism and sleep.
