Chiropractic is a health care system that is focused on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders, with an emphasis on treatment through adjustments and manipulation. There are numerous benefits of chiropractic care, namely: improved posture, reduced stress, and the prevention of potential injuries.
Our spine is attached to our nervous system which means that the health of our spine dictates our mental and physical wellbeing. When the spine is healthy, the nervous system will perform its job optimally by handling stress better and boosting the immune system. However, when the spine is unhealthy and misaligned, this can interfere with the nervous system and the way the nervous system communicates with other parts of our body; causing stress and anxiety. By receiving regular adjustments to align the spine and hence support the nervous system, chiropractic can in turn reduce stress and anxiety.
The stress from everyday demands such as long hours in the office due to slouching, having the monitor placed too low, or cradling the telephone between your neck and shoulder, can interfere with one’s posture. When posture suffers, work performance and overall quality of living can too. However, chiropractors can help improve this by finding the underlying cause/s of poor posture followed by using multiple techniques to correct it. Such can include adjustments, soft tissue work, in addition to specific exercises that are done both in the clinic and at home/office to help change negative posture habits.
Prevention of injuries:
By improving alignment and correcting misalignment of the body through functional examinations; postural evaluations; and adjustments, chiropractic can aid the prevention of potential injuries. An example of this are the common problems experienced by athletes - ankle sprains and shin splints. While these injuries are common, they are preventable when detected. Chiropractors can prevent this by utilising functional examinations that identify potential deficiencies in the musculoskeletal system to assess which muscles need additional treatment then by applying treatment.
