When you think about making an appointment with a chiropractor, you probably think that is what you might do if you have back or neck pain. While many seek relief from a chiropractor for these issues, there are many other less obvious things that a chiropractor can help you with. Chiropractic care focuses on diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine, under the general assumption that these kind of disorders impact overall health via the nervous system. Here are some other ailments that you might be surprised to learn respond well to chiropractic treatment.
- General Anxiety and Stress: Stress is one of the most common complaints by all Americans. People are working more than ever, sleeping less, and many have experienced financial hardship over the last decade. Over time, stress can increase your blood pressure, increase your risk of diabetes and cause long term damage to your immune system, among many other things. Chiropractors can release the muscle tension and restore balance to your spinal area, which can become out of alignment due to stress, decreasing tension all over your body.
- Headaches: Headaches are another extremely common complaint by men and women of all ages. Some estimate that as many as 90% of Americans suffer from regular headaches. Chiropractors can provide significant relief to those that suffer from headaches by completing spinal manipulation. Chiropractors can also offer suggestions about seating position and posture that can also help lessen the frequency and severity of your headaches.
- Fibromyalgia is a mysterious chronic disease that causes extreme fatigue, pain and tender spots in nearly 2% of our population. While the cause of fibromyalgia is not yet known, chiropractors can help these patients with treatments to their nervous system. One recent study showed a 60% improvement from patients after chiropractic adjustments.
- Improved Range of Motion: As you age, you become less flexible and significant movements can cause pain and stiffness. Chiropractic treatment can increase your range of movement, increase flexibility and positively impact overall health.
