What are the ben­e­fits of chi­ro­prac­tic?

Expat Living (Singapore) - - Contents -

We live in a fast-paced city where the stresses of work, fam­ily and ev­ery­day life can take a toll on our health, so we turn to ex­er­cise, med­i­ta­tion and var­i­ous other ac­tiv­i­ties to im­prove our well­be­ing. Lately, more and more peo­ple are recog­nis­ing chi­ro­prac­tic care and its value for treat­ing many con­di­tions, and im­prov­ing over­all health and well­ness. More than just spinal ad­just­ment, stud­ies have shown that chi­ro­prac­tic’s holis­tic ap­proach to health­care can be used to ef­fec­tively treat a wide va­ri­ety of health is­sues. Ben­e­fits in­clude:

Stronger im­mune sys­tem: The ner­vous sys­tem con­trols every­thing in our bod­ies, in­clud­ing the im­mune sys­tem. When the spine is out of align­ment, mes­sages sent to im­mune or­gans like the spleen and lymph nodes are in­com­plete, mak­ing the body sus­cep­ti­ble to viruses, bac­te­ria and other ill­nesses that it can nor­mally fight off. Pa­tients with al­ler­gies of­ten find that the al­ler­gies dis­ap­pear after reg­u­lar chi­ro­prac­tic care.

More ef­fec­tive pain man­age­ment: Another ben­e­fit of a prop­erly func­tion­ing cen­tral ner­vous sys­tem is bet­ter pain man­age­ment. Chi­ro­prac­tic is an ef­fec­tive treat­ment for mi­graines, in­juries, fi­bromyal­gia and pain caused by other con­di­tions. When pain is re­duced, pain killers, which can be harm­ful to the liver and toxic to the body, can be avoided.

More ac­tiv­ity: Pain re­lief means in­creased lev­els of ac­tiv­ity, which lead to an over­all health­ier and im­proved life­style. Reg­u­lar ad­just­ments also im­prove mo­bil­ity and flex­i­bil­ity.

Bet­ter sleep: Due to pain, stress and var­i­ous body aches, our rest can be dis­rupted. Lack of sleep can lead to is­sues like mood­i­ness, weight gain and poor mem­ory. When the spine is prop­erly aligned, the body can re­lax and rest prop­erly.
