Welcome back to the Connected Chiropractic blog! In our introductory blog post, we began looking at some of the benefits residents in Milliken and Johnstown can gain in coming to see our chiropractor for regular chiropractic care. Receiving regular chiropractic treatments is an effective way to manage pain without the use of prescription drugs and without having to undergo invasive surgical procedures. Along with treating and managing pain, there are many other reasons to receive chiropractic care and, today, we would like to explore a few more of these benefits. Please continue reading below to learn more.

Reduces Inflammation

For many, inflammation of the muscles and joints is a constant issue they experience on a daily basis. Whether brought on by an auto, work, or sports injury, or caused by a health condition, inflammation can be incredibly painful and limit one’s ability to move and function. Chiropractic care can effectively alleviate inflammation using a variety of treatments including cold therapy, gentle chiropractic adjustments, and ultrasound therapy.  

Injury Recovery

Chiropractic has been proven to be one of the most effective treatments for injury recovery. Because chiropractic care focuses on correcting musculoskeletal dysfunction and improving the function of the central nervous system, it is an excellent therapy for treating common injuries that cause neck and back pain, pain in the extremities, numbness and tingling, muscle weakness, and other symptoms that cause discomfort. Applying gentle chiropractic adjustments to the spine can realign the spine to remove pressure on the spinal nerves, improving communication between the brain, nerves, and other regions of the body. Removing communication interferences between these systems encourages the body’s natural ability to heal itself so that you can experience pain relief and improved mobility to get you back to doing the things you love.  

Improves Posture

Gentle and controlled spinal manipulations (chiropractic adjustments) can correct poor posture. For many Milliken residents, their daily routines include sitting at a desk in front of a computer for long periods of time, repetitively lifting heavy objects, sitting in a car for extended amounts of time, or performing other tasks that place pressure on the back and spine. While many people try to remember their parents’ advice to “sit up straight,” practicing good posture is a real struggle for most. That’s where we come in. Regular chiropractic visits can improve your posture by applying gentle pressure to the joints of the spine in order to relieve pressure, muscle tension, and other contributor to poor posture. Your chiropractor can also guide you through stretches and exercises you can do at home and at work to make small improvements to your posture every day.  

Wellness Maintenance

Chiropractic care is an effective way to improve your overall health. Receiving regular adjustments, muscle therapy, and other treatments can help you manage pain, ease stress, and encourage better nervous function which benefits your whole body health. Chiropractic care can also aid in the management of chronic health conditions like arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraines and other headaches, sciatica, and herniated discs, to name a few.
