October is National Chiropractic Health Month, and our team at Prescription Chiropractic wants to recognize the benefits chiropractic care has to offer. Chiropractic care focuses on the spine, other body joints, and their connection to the nervous system. The idea behind chiropractic care is to maintain optimal health while avoiding unnecessary surgery or medications. Different chiropractors may vary with their treatment approaches, but essentially, chiropractors perform adjustments (manipulations) to the spine/body joints.
Chiropractic Adjustment Benefits
Visiting our chiropractor in Suffolk County can help relieve you of the pain or symptoms you are encountering. Listed below are a few of the benefits to getting a chiropractic adjustment:
Scoliosis, an abnormal curvature of the spine, can lead to problems from abnormal posture to difficulty breathing. Although scoliosis patients have limited treatment options, chiropractic adjustments are one which has shown to help significantly. Although effectiveness varies from patient to patient, it could help treat and/or prevent the progression of scoliosis.
Neck pain or back pain
80 percent of Americans will experience some form of low back pain at some point in their lives, according to a UNC study. A chiropractic adjustment is a safe, non-invasive, drug-free option for reducing this kind of pain.
Sciatica causes pain radiating from the lower back down the back of the legs. A chiropractic adjustment can help relieve sciatic nerve pressure which causes sciatica. Treatment helps to reduce the severity and number of pain days for sciatica patients.
Back pain and spinal issues can result in tension and migraine headaches. Studies show that the benefits of chiropractic adjustments for headache relief are the top alignment chiropractors treat, next to back pain.
Vertigo can make daily tasks difficult, but with a chiropractic adjustment, our chiropractor in Suffolk County will target joints and vertebrae which can help reduce vertigo episodes, as well as fix your body’s natural balance, which may be the result of vertigo if it is misaligned.
Improved athletic performance
Adjustments can be helpful in reducing sports-related pain or tension, inflammation, as well as boosting the immune system, which in turn can improve athletic performance.
Chiropractic adjustments can be a great solution to numerous health-related issues. If you can relate to one of the 10 symptoms/problems listed above, contact our chiropractor in Suffolk County today for your ticket to relief.
