The benefits of chiropractic adjustments are more numerous than most people realize. In addition to the well-known benefits of spinal alignment which reduces pain following an injury and can prevent future injuries, the chiropractic adjustment also improves respiratory circulation, offers a boost to your immune system, and can increase and improve your flexibility which also serves as a means of preventing a future injury. Each of these benefits are reason enough to seek treatment from a chiropractor. If you visit us at St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center, you will experience the full range of benefits of chiropractic adjustments including the following:
Improvements to Respiratory Circulation
A function of chiropractic care is that it increases blood flow. This fact also applies to blood flow to the nerves of your heart and coronary arteries. If you have suffered with such ailments as allergies or asthma before, the improved blood flow that results from a chiropractic adjustment could result in your finding it easier to breathe. An outgrowth of easier breathing is a greater sense of well-being, which also has a positive impact on your body’s ability to heal. This reinforces the fact that chiropractic adjustments are closely linked to your overall health.
A Boost to Your Immune System
The chiropractic adjustment provides the body with better balance, first by providing realignment in the structures of the spinal column. As mentioned above, one of the most positive effects of the chiropractic adjustment is that it increases and improves the flow of blood. The circulatory improvements that result from a chiropractic adjustment strengthen your body’s immune response.
An Increase in Your Flexibility
Flexibility is a very important aspect of your health. Regardless of your age or your history with flexibility, it is possible to increase your flexibility, which reduces the likelihood of an injury. A chiropractic adjustment is an excellent first step in helping you increase your flexibility. With proper spinal alignment, you are likely to feel less inhibited by movement, and able to exercise harder than you are used to, which is great for your overall health. Increasing your flexibility is also related to better blood flow which speaks to the interrelationships of the systems of the body, all of which are positively affected by a chiropractic adjustment. Increased flexibility also means that you feel less aches, pains, tightness and soreness in your body.
