Chiropractic Care has been around for over 100 years. More than 20 million Americans will seek out chiropractic care in 2014 for a range health issues. Chiropractic Care can be a wonderful way to improve to your quality of life. Let’s look closer at 7 ways chiropractic care can improve your life.

To Ease Pain

Most people see a Chiropractor to reduce pain, particularly in the knees, neck, and back. Chiropractors can also alleviate or minimize headaches, migraines, and sports injuries by treating the underlying musculoskeletal system.


To Reduce Stress
This may be obvious, but it’s easy to get stressed out when you’re in pain. Addressing the underlying causes for body pain makes moving around in your own body feel better and more natural. When you feel good, you’re more likely to exercise, which releases endorphins and greatly reduces stress.


To Reduce Medication Dependence
Medication is great when you really need it. But far too many of us rely on it chronically for daily aches-and-pains. Maybe it’s a lumpy mattress, or a chair that doesn’t fit your body right. Maybe you’re on your feet every day and you’ve been wearing the wrong shoes. Or the right shoes, but for too long. If you find yourself reaching for the ibuprophen regularly, you could greatly benefit from seeing a chiropractor. We treat the underlying cause of your pain so you can feel better in your body without pain medication.


To Encourage Physical Activity
When your body hurts, it’s not fun to move around. It’s better to post up in a chair, on the couch, or in the bed until the pain gets better. And that’s if it gets better. If you suffer from chronic pain, neck pain, back pain, knee pain, joint pain, fibromyalgia, or from a sports injury, a chiropractor can be instrumental in helping to heal the body. When you feel good, you move good.


To Improve Cognitive Function
Studies have shown that people have improved cognitive function after receiving a back or neck adjustment by a chiropractor. This is a result of activation of the neural pathways that travel up the spine. You really do feel more clear headed after an adjustment.


To Boost Productivity
Everything is harder when your body hurts. Even under the best of circumstances, productivity takes a hit. You can’t move as fast. Can’t think as clear. It’s harder to react instinctively when your first instinct is to protect the body part in pain.

Working with a chiropractor to alleviate pain will get the “old you” back. You’ll see an extra pep in your step and gain back some of the efficiency that pain has taken away.


To Improve Sleep and Quality of Life
Kids don’t know how good they’ve got it. They can fall asleep in any position and wake up feeling just fine. They can spend a day running around doing kid stuff and wake up the next morning ready to go again with no pain or soreness.

The older we get, the more wear and tear we put on our bodies. By the time we’re 40, sleeping on the couch is all some of us need for our back to feel terrible for the rest of the day.

Growing old gracefully means thinking of wellness. Wellness is what we call trying to minimize future bodily wear and tear. Chiropractic care in Wilmington helps identify issues in your muscles and joints and develops a plan to fix them. Reducing pain in your body has an immense impact physiologically and psychologically. It allows you to go about your day in less pain and with more mental clarity.

Both are keys for a good life, and a good night’s sleep.
