5 Ways Chiropractic Can Improve Your Life

Every year, more than 35 million Americans of all ages turn to a chiropractor to improve their health and wellness. If you’ve never received chiropractic care, you might wonder what keeps these people coming back for spinal adjustments and other chiropractic therapies. 

Chiropractic care has plenty to offer. It’s not just a way to “loosen up” a stiff back or joints, though it can improve many common musculoskeletal conditions and imbalances. Board-certified chiropractor Steven Gentry, DC, offers individualized chiropractic services at ChiroCare Therapy in Rancho Santa Margarita, California, after a detailed consultation discussing your goals. 

Most chiropractors take an integrative approach by using multiple evidence-based techniques tailored to your needs and symptoms, including:

  • Manual chiropractic adjustments
  • Spinal decompression
  • Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization
  • Transcutaneous electric nerve stimulation
  • Orthobiologics
  • Intravenous (IV) therapy
  • Peptides
  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Cold laser therapy
  • Supplements

Thinking about starting chiropractic care? Anticipate these five benefits as you visit our office for treatment.  

1. Safe and natural pain relief

Engaging in personalized chiropractic care can help you avoid pharmaceutical pain-relief medications like opioids. These medications are highly addictive and can cause additional health and wellness concerns with long-term use.

Chiropractic care offers natural pain management. Through therapeutic exercises and adjustments, you can reduce inflammation throughout your body and experience less joint, muscle, and back pain.  

2. Posture improvements

Your posture is the alignment of your back when you’re mobile and stationary. Sitting or standing, your back’s alignment should maintain your spine’s natural curvature without exaggerating its natural contours. 

Poor posture is a significant cause of back pain, neck pain, and headaches. Dr. Gentry can help you be more mindful of your position and strengthen the muscles responsible for maintaining your posture. 

3. Improved range of motion

Feeling stiff after an injury or because of arthritis? While reducing inflammation and pain, chiropractic adjustments also improve your range of motion. That means more mobility, and in many cases, more independence. 

4. Fewer headaches

If you get headaches and migraines often, perhaps it’s time to try chiropractic care. Many headaches and migraines stem from impingements in your neck, and chiropractic adjustments can take the pressure off the involved nerves. 

5. Slowing arthritis progression

Osteoarthritis is the most common degenerative joint condition and progresses as you age. While research is still ongoing, some studies on animals suggest that routine chiropractic care can slow the damage caused by osteoarthritis. 

That could mean you can enjoy functional joints for years or decades after your arthritis diagnosis.
