The Wellness Benefits of Chiropractic You Should Know

In the past, most people believed chiropractic care was reserved for the injured — particularly for those involved in auto accidents. This misconception has been dealt with to some extent as more people now understand chiropractic care to a greater degree. There is a growing recognition that important health benefits, both specific and general, can be derived from routine treatment by a chiropractor. We’re going to explore three such benefits in this blog post, so continue reading.

First, chiropractic care can be very instrumental in dealing with scoliosis, which is an abnormal twisting of the spine. Believe it or not, superstar athlete Usain Bolt suffered from this physically limiting condition, but chiropractic treatment helped him achieve his dreams on the track.

How Chiropractic Care Has Helped Me: Introducing Usain Bolt

Usain Bolt has been declared the “fastest man in the world.” While this hasn’t always been technically true, he has won so consistently at the 100 meter distance throughout his career that the nickname “lightning bolt” seems like a pretty good fit…

But his success on the track and his international stardom has not come without challenges. As a young man, Bolt suffered from scoliosis…

Instead of using a brace or enduring dangerous surgery to correct the abnormal curvature of his spine, Usain Bolt used chiropractic treatments. “I’ve worked hard over the years. I’ve been injured and I’ve worked hard through it, and I’ve made it.” Bolt uses chiropractic not only to bounce back more quickly from injuries, but also to enhance his performance while healthy. “As long as I’m in great shape, nobody beats me, for sure.” Read more at Circle of Docs…

As the post above describes, chiropractic care not only corrected the scoliosis that plagued Bolt, it has helped him maintain his elite status throughout his career.

The body’s ability to heal itself is amazing, but this process is often hindered by daily encounters that strain the body. Chiropractic care enhances your body’s ability to restore proper function. The following post explains this in detail:

Can Chiropractic Care Improve Your Body’s Ability to Self Heal?

The human body is continuously striving to maintain health adequate for survival. More than 10,000 disturbances to our cells come from free radicals. Some of the most potent varieties include reactive oxygen species (ROS) which our cells must constantly defend against. Our bodies are equipped with the amazing capability to self-heal by preventing and repairing damage done to the body. One powerful strategy to enhance this ability for our bodies to self-heal is chiropractic care. Read more at The Truth About Cancer…

As explained, the body is constantly engaged in harm prevention and damage repair. It only makes sense to do your best to enhance this capability, something chiropractic care can help with.

Another way you can benefit from chiropractic care is through your overall wellness. The following is one patient’s testimony:

A common misconception is that chiropractic care is only beneficial for treating back pain. However, chiropractic can be used for a wide range of things including ear infections and headaches, as well as treat nutritional deficiencies. In fact, I started seeing a chiropractor a little over two years ago for this very reason. I was burned out, not sleeping, and I had always suffered from lower back discomfort. She discovered that I needed some help nutritionally and suggested I take some supplements. Now, I see her on a fairly regular basis for nutritional consultations and occasionally for my lower back. It’s much better now thanks to my workout routine, but I still have trouble bending at times. Not many people know about the benefits of chiropractic care. Read more at My Health Spin…
