Many patients get a spinal adjustment to relieve chronic back pain. While pain relief may be the main goal of a spinal manipulation, but it is not the only health benefit patients receive. There are a wide variety of additional health benefits that anyone can realize from a quick chiropractic visit. Let’s examine a few of the most amazing benefits.
A Spinal Adjustment Can Lead To Greater Cognitive Performance
It’s incredible what a quick chiropractic visit can do for you. From a simple toggle drop to a “no-pop” adjustment, spinal manipulation has the potential to impact your cognitive abilities.
Research has shown that spinal manipulation alters brain function. When dysfunctional spinal joints are adjusted and corrected, your sensory and motor functions are improved. These improvements are attributed to how the adjustment affects the prefrontal cortex. A spinal manipulation can also improve other executive functions that take place within that same cortex. These could include your complex planning or problem-solving skills.
Spinal Manipulations Lower Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is more common than you may think. On average, 1 out of every 3 adults has high blood pressure. Many Americans rely on various medications to lower their blood pressure and keep it at a healthy level. Those meds work, but they can have some negative side effects, such as fatigue, nausea, and/or weight loss.
These side effects can be avoided when you opt for a spinal adjustment instead. Research has shown that spinal manipulations can significantly lower high blood pressure. And, in some cases, these effects can last for as long as 6 months!
If you suffer from high blood pressure, try out a spinal adjustment for a change. It could drastically change your quality of life.
Boost Your Immune System With A Spinal Adjustment
There are plenty of things you can do to improve the strength of your immune system. Proper nutrition, exercise, and self-care all influence the health of your immune system. And your spine health impacts your immune system too.
Studies have shown that a spinal adjustment can actually increase your white blood cell count (the cells that fight off diseases and infections). This increase can occur within just 15 minutes of the spinal manipulation! So, before flu season rolls around, it may be a good idea to get a quick adjustment.
Spinal Adjustments Can Improve a Variety of Conditions
It’s easy to assume that a spinal adjustment can only treat spine-related issues. That is not always the case. Aside from fixing your bad back, a quick visit to the chiropractor can help relieve and treat a range of medical conditions. These could include:
- Headaches or migraines
- Gastrointestinal problems
- Fertility issues and menstrual problems
- And much more!
