5 Benefits of Chiropractic Care Even If You're Not in Pain

Chiropractic is a hands-on approach to medicine that focuses on spinal manipulation to improve health. Your spine is at the center of your musculoskeletal system, and if it’s misaligned, you can experience pain or discomfort in a variety of ways.

One of the most common reasons patients visit a chiropractor is pain. Back pain, neck pain, and headaches are some of the top conditions chiropractors address. But did you know that there are benefits to chiropractic care that go beyond pain relief?

Through chiropractic adjustments, your body is able to function efficiently. Maintaining health naturally can prevent health complications before they start, minimizing the need for drugs or surgical procedures to keep you feeling well long-term.

Jason Keller, DC, is our resident chiropractor at iMed Regeneration Center in Colorado Springs. He believes chiropractic adjustments improve overall bodily function and wellness — whether or not you’re seeking treatment for pain. 

Call our office or book your first appointment online today to find out if chiropractic is a good option for you. In addition to pain management, chiropractic care can improve your:

Range of motion

Even if you’re not in pain, your joints, connective tissue, and ligaments change and deteriorate over time. Chiropractic care manipulates your body to maintain and even improve your range of motion.

Chiropractic improves joint mobility and may reduce your chances of suffering joint and cartilage deterioration later in life. Chiropractic treatment also addresses muscle strength, helping to loosen tight muscles and strengthen weaker muscles.

Nervous system function

Your spine contains bundles of nerves that connect your entire body to your brain. Your nervous system controls every bodily function, from digestion to immunity. Spinal misalignments can impede your nervous system and cause almost imperceptible changes in how your body works.

Chiropractic care enhances your nervous system function and boosts blood flow throughout your body. Removing interference improves your nervous system’s ability to carry nerve impulses to the brain, enhancing whole body performance.

Digestion

Your digestive system and nervous system are closely linked. Nerves in your spine control how your body digests food, while subluxations, or spinal misalignments, can interfere with digestion. 

Conditions like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), diarrhea, constipation, and even heartburn can be relieved with chiropractic care. Through chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Keller removes the blockages in the nerves that control digestion, and you can see improvements in the way you feel. 

Quality of sleep

Misalignments in the spine — even those that don’t cause noticeable pain — might be interfering with your sleep. Regular chiropractic adjustments take unhealthy strain and stress off of the nerves and bones in your spine, promoting relaxation.

In addition to adjustments, Dr. Keller can make recommendations about healthy sleeping positions. Getting a supportive pillow or mattress, as well as not sleeping on your stomach, can help your body feel better while you sleep. 

Immune system

Your immune system is influenced by your nervous system and endocrine system. Because chiropractic care helps your body operate at its peak performance, it can strengthen your immune system and help you fight off germs.

You don’t have to be in pain to experience the benefits of chiropractic adjustment. While treatment varies for every individual, many patients see their overall wellness improve with chiropractic care. Contact us today to learn more.
