• 10 Hidden benefits of Chiropractic Adjustments

  • Chiropractic adjustments are the way to go! Whether you are looking for pain relief or to make long-term change to your body function, Here are the 10 things that happen with chiropractic adjustment and the benefits you can expect.

    1. You experience ease of movement. With routine daily activities, (driving, sitting at a computer, house chores, etc.) in time, the soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, discs, tendons, fascia) slowly begin to fatigue and fail. As a result, we develop faulty movement patterns that become permanent if not addressed. The joints become stiff and achy and misaligned. Adjustments restore the symmetry and the range of motion in a joint.

    2. Your muscles will be more relaxed. When a joint is injured or stiff, soft tissue adhesions begin to form. It takes only 4 days of lack of proper motion for adhesions to form and tighten the tissue. Adjustments release endorphins and relax the muscles.

    3. You experience improved coordination, increased athletic performance, and prevent injuries. When a joint is in optimal position, it is well supported.  Adjustments stimulate sensory-motor reflexes which improve dynamic muscular stabilization.

    4. You will sleep better. According to the National Sleep Foundation, nearly one-third of people who have undergone a chiropractic adjustment say they experience an immediate improvement in sleep. Chiropractic adjustments ease muscle tension, relieve pain and discomfort, and improve central nervous system function.


    5. You will get less sick. Think of the energy your body puts into muscle spasms caused by joint misalignments and the nerve impulses transmitting the feeling of pain.  By decreasing spasm, misalignment, and pain, chiropractic adjustments allow your body to put more energy into all your vital functions, including your immune system!

    6. Your liver will thank you. Even though it is widely accepted that the use of NSAID medication for pain and inflammation is associated with a low rate of hepatic disease, why not go with a chiropractic adjustment? It is a natural, safe, and effective pain relief.  It doesn’t only address the symptoms; it actually fixes the cause. It only makes sense to go with the adjustment.


    7. You will breathe better. Thoracic spine adjustment will improve your ability to breathe.  Slumped posture due to sitting and technology use compresses the chest cavity and the heart.  Chiropractic adjustments improve posture and restore mobility in the rib cage, thus allowing for deeper breaths. 

    8. You will be happier. Adjustments decrease pain, accelerate healing, relieve stress and tension, and increase energy.

    9. Slows the aging process and spinal decay. Chiropractic adjustments improve blood flow and thus nourish the discs and increase the articular cartilage. It also pumps out waste products and inflammatory fluid that had been trapped.

    10. Oh yeah, and you feel amazing!! Note: This is just the beginning of all the reasons one would want to get adjusted, as every part of the body functions at a higher level after a chiropractic adjustment.
