Chiropractic care has many commonly known benefits in relation to helping the body move and function better. However, what many people do not know is seeing a chiropractor can help alleviate other health concerns.
Asthma – As part of the shortness of breath that comes with Asthma, many patients complain of back pain. Seeing a chiropractor can help Asthma patients deal with this pain. The adjustments made during chiropractic care can also help open airways to potentially work towards improving the symptoms associated with Asthma.
Migraines – According to the American Chiropractic Association, the greatest majority of headaches are caused by pain in the neck. This is often caused by the increased time many Americans spend sitting. Seeing a chiropractor can help alleviate this tension on your muscle system that could be causing your headaches and migraines.
High Blood Pressure – A 2015 study of nearly 300 adults found that manipulation of certain portions of the spine results in a decrease in systolic and diastolic blood pressure. On average these changes were a 7% reduction. Because the reliance on medication to treat high blood pressure can be expensive and tedious, this is a great step in the right direction for a meaningful alternative.
The benefits of chiropractic care are wide-reaching and can be crucial in helping with recovery from a wide variety of injuries.
