Four Ways Chiropractic Can Help You
Regulates Blood Pressure
For those who suffer from high blood pressure and/or hypertension, a chiropractic adjustment of the Atlas vertebrae can help normalize blood pressure. The Atlas vertebrae (C1) is the first vertebrae in your cervical spine, which holds up the head. A study conducted by the University of Chicago in 2007 reports that spinal manipulations of the Atlas may lower blood pressure and aid in the treatment of hypertension. This study suggests that removing misalignments in the cervical spine via the Atlas can restore healthy blood flow and lower blood pressure.
Relieves Headaches and Migraines
The American Migraine Foundation reports that as many as 37 million Americans suffer migraine headaches, which can cause debilitating pain. Additionally, stress, trauma, and tension in the tissues of the neck, upper back, and shoulders can cause headaches and contribute to migraines. Chiropractic adjustments of the neck and upper spine can reduce stress and tension in these areas, reducing aggravation on the spinal nerves to improve nerve function and reduce overall stress on the body. As a result, patients report reduced pain, a decrease in headache frequency, and shorter headaches after onset.
As we mentioned in part two, the nervous system and the immune system are closely linked. Because chiropractic adjustments not only strengthen the immune system, but also improve communication between the brain and the spinal cord, proper alignment of the spine can stimulate proper regulation and coordination of the body’s natural reaction to allergens.
Stimulates the Body’s Natural Healing Ability
The body has the incredible ability to heal itself through the central nervous system. When there are blockages in the central nervous system in the form of stress, tension, pinched nerves, and disc herniations, communication is hindered, making it difficult for the central nervous system to send signals to other areas of the body. Chiropractic adjustments correct these misalignments, thereby opening up the lines of communication, stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal and recover from pain, injury, and other neuromuscular complaints.
