“What’s the point in going to a chiropractor? I don’t have any pain in my back.” It is a phrase that is often heard, but the use of chiropractic care as a holistic approach to health and wellbeing is well documented. Regular maintenance visits may not only keep joints and ligaments set in their correct positions but may also bring about some more positive improvements to your overall wellbeing that you didn’t expect to see.
The body is a finely tuned machine that needs proper care to perform at its optimal levels. Lifestyle and societal changes have led to a more sedentary culture, which studies have shown, can lead to more digestive-health issues. Regular visits to the chiropractor can utilise spinal manipulation therapy, soft tissue therapy, and relaxation stretches to increase digestive health, possibly alleviating symptoms of poor gut health.
We’ve all been there, chiropractors included. When we’re in pain of any kind, our stress levels rise, and our patience levels can drop. Through regular maintenance visits, chiropractors are able to address potential back, neck, and joint problems before they occur, optimising the body’s performance and lowering the potential for stress to occur because of pain.
Poor posture can also lead to lower self-esteem and emotional stress. We are our bodies and through proper posture and alignment, we’re able to flaunt the best version of ourselves. Chiropractors can do a posture check to find the underlying causes of poor posture and figure out how you can work on improving these. These improvements will allow you to free up your brain from constantly thinking, “sit up straight” or “stand tall”.
There are more than just the obvious reasons to visit a chiropractor near you. Through a consistent and holistic approach to care, you and your chiropractor can work together to build a life that you are truly happy with and help get your body running at its optimal levels.
