Did you know stress impacts almost every aspect of the body? From your skin to your reproductive system and intestines, excessive stress levels can be dangerous to your short-term and long-term health. Treating stress requires proper alignment to help the entire body communicate better and release stress and tension. When the spine is not correctly aligned, it will cause problems throughout your entire body. Chiropractic care for stress allows the body to be properly adjusted and capable of handling stress.
Over time, slouched sitting over a computer can easily cause a curved spine. In the last few years, we have seen a drastic increase in the number of people coming in with neck pain and posture issues due to overuse from texting and looking down on cell phones, tablets, laptops, and other devices. Not only does it cause stiffness and tension in the neck, it eventually leads to posture issues where you are starting to hunch. It is important to keep the spine and neck correctly aligned to reduce pain and improve posture. Keeping the body “tuned-up” does improve your overall health and quality of life.
Stress and tension in the body can lead to mood swings. People with excessive stress feel it in their body as the muscles can start developing tension knots that need to be relieved to reduce pain. Injuries often lead to long-term mobility issues and pain concerns for a number of people. Pain in any way is linked to mood and the body is not balanced correctly. When you have issues with the nervous system imbalance, it causes chemical imbalances, which has been linked to depression, ADHD, and a number of other health conditions. It has been shown that regular chiropractic treatment is one of the best ways to improve mood when dealing with chemical imbalances and other concerns.
Strengthen Immune System
The body runs on balance. When you have an imbalance somewhere, it leads to concerns throughout the body from joint pain to mood swings to reoccurring illnesses. The nervous system needs to be functioning correctly to properly send vital signals to different parts of the body. When these signals are impaired, the immune system will suffer. Illnesses can occur easily when the nervous system is hampered. Recovering from an illness quickly can be challenging when you are suffering from nervous system problems. Chiropractic treatment has been linked to an improvement in the immune system and nervous system.
Improve Quality of Sleep
Did you know adults should receive at least 7-9 hours of sleep daily? If you find yourself dealing with excessive daytime sleepiness and problems feeling rested, it is time to consider your options. Lack of sleep is linked to a number of health problems from joint and muscle pain to body aches and overall stress. Correct alignment of the spine will help to reduce pain and improve overall the overall quality of your health and well-being. Chiropractic treatments for sleep focus on proper alignment and adjustments to improve blood flow in patients. Proper blood flow will help the body rest easier, and improves the quality of sleep you receive.
Chiropractors are often known for their ability to reduce pain and inflammation, strengthen muscles and joints, and improve range of motion. When you are suffering from sports performance issues, it is wise to schedule a chiropractic consultation to examine the issues. In Utah, we see a range of athletes professional and recreational alike. The Wasatch Mountains make it easy for hiking, biking, and snow-skiing injuries to occur. If you have been injured previously, you may find yourself still suffering from range of motion issues. Our chiropractic treatments are designed to identify the root cause of the problem, not just treating symptoms. Contact Life Health Medical Center in Salt Lake to schedule a visit to discuss sports performance issues, and let us help you get back to enjoying your favorite sports, without pain!
As we age, it is harder for the body to heal and recover as quickly. Reducing pain is possible with correct chiropractic treatment. During an initial examination, our Chiropractors will focus on identifying the root problem. We want to find out where inflammation and muscle tension are causing additional problems in order to focus on correct modalities and treatments. We focus on creating life-long solutions to improve the body, not treating symptoms and masking pain. In addition to chiropractic treatments for pain, we also have additional treatment methods that can be considered based on the injury and intensity of pain.
Reduce Risk of Medication Use
The body does become dependent on medication when you use it for long-term pain management. If you find yourself dealing with chronic pain and you are tired of relying on medication, contact our Salt Lake chiropractic office to schedule a consultation. We will help you learn how your body can use it’s natural healing ability to start recovering. We aim to get to the root of the problem and treat it to start bringing your body back to balance. Several studies have been conducted and identified chiropractic care as the best option for neck pain treatment compared to patients using medication to treat neck pain.
