Imagine, for a minute, you could shrink yourself and somehow manage to get inside a person’s body and travel through the various systems. Wouldn’t it be fascinating to see how all those tunnels and organs work? It’s hard to even imagine all the amazing processes going on, right now, inside the body.
If you think of the inside of your body as a series of highways with blood and/or brain messages flowing down these highways to make everything work right, then imagine when something blocks the flow… suddenly, the blood/brain message can’t flow like it should… and you experience pain. Ugh!
Chiropractors are known for helping people with bad backs, but if you think about it, they can actually tend to many other parts of the body. And what do they do? They use hand manipulation and certain devices to help move things internally and/or coax them back to their natural position. Ideally, they get rid of “traffic jams” in the body so the natural flow of things is restored.
Can chiropractic care help with a person’s well-being? Definitely! For starters, chiropractic care can help relieve and/or eliminate pain. By improving musculoskeletal health, a person’s everyday functions and quality of life improves… you walk better, look better, and feel better.
Some of the well-being benefits of seeing a chiropractor for regular adjustments include an improved immune function, lowered blood pressure, more energy, less inflammation, better digestion, easier breathing, better posture/balance, improved range of motion, and better quality sleep. For women who are pregnant, chiropractic care helps take pressure off the spine, relieves body pain, and helps make for healthier pregnancies and births.
Emotionally, a person often feels better after seeing a chiropractor. They need someone to help them feel better because they can’t do it all alone. The chiropractor makes adjustments and then the person thinks, “Well, now my body can heal itself because he/she helped jumpstart the process that I couldn’t do on my own.” As the body “gets back to normal,” a person has fewer worries and challenges– it becomes easier to move around, which is exactly what they hoped for!
