Seven Reasons to Try Chiropractic Care

Some people are wary of visiting a chiropractor for fear of worsening an injury, or because they don't know how chiropractic care works, but chiropractic care can be very useful in managing your pain, in correcting your posture, and in helping to maintain your overall health.

We put together seven reasons for you to give chiro care a try. Check them out! 

  1. If you experience back pain on a regular basis, your chiropractor can help to align your spine, alleviating your pain. Your chiropractor might also teach you stretches and/or exercises to assist with healing and pain management. 
  2. Similar to back pain relief, a chiropractor can adjust your neck and/or back to help relieve pain caused by headaches. Chiropractors can be especially helpful in providing tips to improve your posture, which will further strengthen your muscles and relieve the pain in your neck, back, and head. 
  3. We know it's confusing to think that a chiropractor could help with gastrointestinal issues, but visiting a chiropractor will help to properly align your body and assist with bowel regularity.
  4. Do your or your child experience reoccurring ear infections? Try visiting a chiropractor to resolve the alignment issues in your spine, allowing the fluid in your ears to flow properly, and resolving the reoccurring infection. 
  5. We know it can be scary to allow a person to crack your neck and spine, but parallel to back pain and headaches, a chiropractor can help to resolve that unwavering pain in your neck. You will likely find increased mobility and a loss of tension after allowing a chiropractor to work on your neck. 
  6. If you struggle with arthritis or regular joint pain, a chiropractor can help you to manage your pain. As stated above, your chiropractor is likely to explain some useful stretches and exercises specific to your area of concern; practicing these exercised and stretches will help you to manage your pain and improve your overall health. 
  7. By adjusting your body, your chiropractor is able to improve the natural flow and alignment of your body, allowing your blood and other cells to flow freely.

5 Reasons to Go for A Massage

Did you know that massage is covered under most benefit programs, allowing you to claim a portion or the entire cost of massage service? It appears most people think of massage as a treat to themselves, but it can be a really great way to maintain your overall health, decrease muscle pain, improve your athletic performance, and assist in reducing pain caused by arthritis and/or other illnesses.

1.      Stress Relief

Massage can provide you with 30-90 minutes of relaxation, taking you away from your every day stresses and allowing you to clear your mind of any bothersome thoughts.

2.      Reduce Anxiety

Alongside stress management, massage can help to reduce anxiety by enforcing relaxation. Many people experience anxiety throughout the week as they find a way to manage work place stressors and other personal concerns.

3. Decrease Migraine Frequency

Do you experience severe headaches and/or migraines? Massage can help to relax your muscles and decrease the frequency in which you experience migraines.

4.      Reduce Muscle Tension

Parallel to reducing headaches, massage therapists can help to relax the other muscles in your body that might be causing you pain or discomfort. Your massage therapist can work on specific muscle groups to release tension throughout your body.

5.      Enhance Exercise Performance

Massage can help to increase your range of motion, therefore enhancing your exercise performance. If you have tight muscles at the gym, you’re at greater risk for injury and you likely won’t be able to complete your exercises properly.
