Back pain is the leading cause of disability, worldwide. This prevents people from being able to work, engage in physical activity, play with their kids, and live a functional life. Below are just 4 quick reasons why getting chiropractic care can help your everyday life.
- Heart Disease Severe back pain generally prevents patients from being able to engage in physical activity. If this goes untreated, it can become a long-term issue with the heart, creating blood clots because of the lack of blood flow.
- Arthritis Chiropractic care reduces restriction in the joints, primarily in the spine. This helps with inflammation and pain management of arthritis. Though this isn’t a cure, it is a holistic way to gently improve function of the affected joints and reduce the rates of developing arthritis later in life.
- Kyphosis Also known as hunch back, kyphosis is where the curve of the spine has an excessive arch rather than the slight curve that is natural to the body. If untreated, this can lead to long term hunch back, making it difficult to live a functional life in older ages.
- Organ Function and Bowl Regularity When properly aligned, the nervous system can clearly send signals to the rest of the body. The nervous system controls all our organs, including the brain, intestines, liver, etc.
Not being able to engage in physical activity means that you aren’t able to work out and get your blood flowing without pain, or function to your fullest potential. This can lead to problems in the body that you may not even realize are related to your spine. Chiropractic care can prevent all of this, leading to a healthier and happier life.
