CLA Update: Why Go to a Chiropractor?

February 28, 2014

People often associate doctors of chiropractic with back pain. While it’s true that most chiropractic care involves spinal adjustments, this care is used specifically to target the nervous system passing through your spinal column. Since the nervous system is the main route the brain uses to control all of your bodily functions, there are many reasons to seek chiropractic care. The following are some of the most common reasons people seek chiropractic services. Some may even¬†surprise you:


  1. The most obvious reason people seek chiropractic care is for neck or back pain. Your doctor of chiropractic can definitely improve your quality of life and help relieve pain from most sources of pain in your neck or back.
  2. What you may not be aware of is the thousands of people who recover yearly from conditions such as asthma, ulcers, high blood pressure, headaches and more, through a chiropractic care plan.
  3. People in search of holistic and natural care rather than using harmful drugs or resorting to potentially dangerous surgeries also seek chiropractic care. In many cases, the appropriate chiropractic care plan can improve their conditions in a safer and healthier manner.
  4. Whether they’ve been in the care of a chiropractor for some of the above-named issues, or they’re just knowledgeable about the nervous system, some people choose chiropractic care for prevention and maintenance. With an understanding that staying healthy is easier than recovering from a serious illness or injury, these people enjoy regular chiropractic care to maintain optimal health.
  5. Finally, the most important aspect of chiropractic care is to allow your body to express 100% of its innate capabilities. Nerve interference can cause everything from illness to pain or tingling and numbness in your extremities. When this sensitive “information highway” from your brain to your body is suffering from interference, you won’t be able to enjoy optimal health or perform at your best.
