If you’ve never had a chiropractic adjustment, you could be missing out on a modality for you to enjoy a healthy and comfortable life. Chiropractic care is a form of skeletal adjustment where it can restore joint mobility and functionality in your spinal nervous system. After all, your spine gives you flexibility and mobility in your daily life, while your spinal cord hosts your body’s nerves that connect your brain to the rest of your body.
In today’s article, we’ll discuss why it’s important to have an aligned spine and how chiropractic care can help.
Importance of an aligned spine
A misaligned spine can increase the risk of severe health issues down the road. Spine misalignment can put you at risk of the following:
- Joint stiffness
- Slouched posture
- Permanent bone or joint deformities
A properly aligned spine allows for optimal function of your spinal nervous system and gives you great posture, making you feel and look more confident. Additionally, poor posture can lead to your body compressing its abdominal organs, causing your metabolism to slow down over time. However, proper posture from an aligned spine can allow your digestive system to function properly.
Additionally, a misaligned spine causes your vertebrae to have mobility issues which can affect your daily life and lead to future back problems, migraines, neck pain, and a poor functioning nervous system.
How chiropractic care can help
When you visit ProActive Health for the first time, we will first conduct an assessment of your current condition to note any existing and underlying issues that we need to address. From there, we’ll work with you to create a plan to resolve these issues over time. After this, we’ll begin adjusting your back by applying pressure to adjust the spinal joints in your body that will allow us to realign your spine to reduce pain and discomfort.
The important thing to remember is that you won’t witness change overnight. You may feel some relief, but to experience true change, we recommend staying committed to the schedule Dr. Doug or Dr. Mike gives you.
