6 Things Chiropractic Care Can Help With

Chiropractors work on your musculoskeletal system. This is really just a fancy way of saying we work on the structure of your body, mainly your spine. And seeing that just about everything in your body is connected to your spine either through nerves, tissue, or muscle, there’s very little that chiropractic care can’t help with. 🙌 

You may think that the only time you should call a chiropractor is when your spine hurts, but this really isn’t the case. Let’s take a look 👀 at some of the things your chiropractor can help with. 

You Have Muscle Or Joint Pain

We’ll get the most obvious one out of the way first. Joint and muscle pain are some of the most common issues we treat at Inspired Health. This kind of pain may make you want to reach for painkillers! 💊 

Chiropractors are trained to ensure your body functions optimally by using spinal and joint manipulation to relieve pain in your joints and muscles. These adjustments improve blood 🩸 flow throughout your body, as well as nerve conductivity to the joints and muscles that are painful. Typically, our patients experience a lot less pain and are far more able to cope after they have had treatment. 🥳 

You Have Regular Headaches

While headaches can be caused by things like dehydration, another common cause is a joint irritation in your neck or spine. Chiropractic care can help relieve headaches and improve blood flow, which increases the amount of oxygen that is delivered around your body. 🙌  

You Spend A Lot Of Time Sitting Down

If your job requires you to spend a lot of time sitting 🪑 down, especially if you’re hunched over a keyboard 💻, you can certainly consider yourself in need of chiropractic care. Sitting for extended periods of time can lead to poor posture which may result in a lot of pressure on your upper back, neck, and shoulders. This pressure can even cause the discs and bones in your spine to get irritated, causing problems like slipped discs.😲 

Chiropractic care can help relieve a lot of this pressure, help improve your posture and increase your endurance for long periods in the seated position. We’ll also give you some simple exercises and advice that can help your body cope better when you have to sit a lot.  

You Have A Limited Range Of Motion

If you ever find your arms, legs, and neck aren’t as flexible as they used to be or should be, it’s time to see a chiropractor. If you can’t move your neck as far to one side as you can to the other, then it’s also definitely time! 

All the adjustments we do are designed to help establish healthy movement in your joints. This relieves pain 😌 and increases your body’s range of motion. And, of course, having a normal range of motion makes life a whole lot easier as well as keeping your body functioning at its best. 

You Have A Shooting Pain In Your Legs Or Arms

If you have any sharp, shooting pains in your legs 🦵 or arms 💪, or you experience tingling and weakness, you could have a pinched nerve or even a slipped disc. A chiropractor can diagnose the exact cause of the pain in your arm or leg and use spinal adjustment to alleviate the pressure that is being placed on the nerve that is causing you pain. 

You Enjoy Being Active

If you live an active lifestyle 🏃‍️ that includes plenty of exercise and even playing sports 🎾, it’s a good idea to go for chiropractic care. Whenever you take part in physical activity 🏋️, your body goes through additional strain and pressure. These activities can sometimes contribute towards pinched nerves, slipped discs, and other alignment issues. 

If you are an active person or play a sport, seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis will keep your body functionally optimally so that you can perform and continue to live the lifestyle you love.
