When you think about a chiropractic adjustment, you may first think about a sports injury, auto accident or back/neck pain. What you might not realize is that chiropractic treatment can be highly effective for helping those suffering from chronic conditions like arthritis and other health conditions. The team at St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center offers a wide variety of treatment and support options for people with chronic illness including:
Chiropractic Adjustments: Chiropractic adjustments can dramatically decrease overall pain, which can be associated with chronic illnesses such as arthritis. When this pain is decreased and your spine is realigned, you can more easily do routine activities, which can improve your overall healthy. Chiropractic adjustments also boost your immune system.
Massage Therapy: Massage therapy can relax your muscles, allowing your range of motion to improve which also promotes normal physical activity. Massages also reduce stress, which can be a huge factor when you are facing a chronic injury.
Nutritional Advice and easy ways to increase physical activity: Another component of care that our team can provide is helping you develop a nutritional and exercise plan that works for you. Each person is different, and our team will make sure that your plan is personalized and workable for you, given your goals and any concerns or limitations that you have.
