Three Surprising Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment

Chiropractic treatment can bring about improvements in overall energy.

Most people assume that chiropractic treatment only benefits neck and back pain. In reality, chiropractic adjustments can create advantages across a spectrum of physical and mental areas. If you’ve never had a treatment, schedule chiropractic adjustment today with Madeira Chiropractic and Rehab.

Improved Digestion

The thoracic spine contains the nerves that control your stomach functions. If these nerves become irritated, it can negatively impact acid production in the stomach. The result? Acid reflux, heartburn, or gas bloating. Chiropractic adjustment can remove the stimuli that negatively impact these nerves, and thus improve the digestive process.

Lower Blood Pressure

The spinal nerves located in your upper neck help control the flow of blood throughout your body. Any obstruction in this area can cause hypertension. A specific type of chiropractic adjustment, the atlas adjustment, can stimulate these nerves and improve circulation.

Increased Energy

When the nerves that run down your back become impeded or blocked, your back muscles can contract and begin to spasm. Almost like a water hose that gets bent in half, your energy flow throughout your body can get blocked. A chiropractic adjustment can realign the vertebrae that contain these nerves, which allow your back muscles to relax. Many chiropractic patients report an overall increase in energy from this treatment, which manifests throughout their everyday life.
