Benefits Of Chiropractic Care
At the Spine Pain Center of Irmo, we believe in taking a holistic approach to healing the body. For almost a decade, Dr. Jacobs and his medical team have proudly served the residents of Columbia by designing treatment plans based on each patient’s unique needs. We use a variety of modalities, including chiropractic care, physical rehabilitation, and nutritional counseling to help nurture the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Read on to learn about the benefits of chiropractic care, an integral part of our healing approach.
1) Pain Management
Because the central nervous system governs every cell in the body, your chiropractor will likely include spinal adjustments as part of your pain management treatment plan. These manipulations help create an internal environment that naturally reduces pain in joints, muscles, connective tissue, and bones. It has successfully treated acute and chronic conditions, including headaches, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, neck pain, and back pain.
2) Improves Mobility and Function
Visiting a chiropractor regularly can help improve muscle and joint mobility, function, and health. It allows proper blood flow into the area, restoring muscles to their natural state. This increased circulation helps strengthen the muscles and supports a faster healing process, helping many patients avoid costly and painful surgical procedures.
3) Lowers Blood Pressure
Studies indicate that improved circulation has the added benefit of lowering blood pressure. In fact, the Journal of Human Hypertensionrevealed that just one cervical adjustment can lower one’s blood pressure to normal levels, yielding the same results as two doses of blood pressure medication. The effects of that one adjustment can last upwards of six months.
4) Strengthens the Immune System
As mentioned, a properly aligned spine promotes a healthy nervous system. With a healthy central nervous system, everything else falls into place. The individual organ systems’ functions improve, as does the overall health and wellness of the body.
