Five Steps To an Improved Quality of Life

scoliosisxrayIn August 2004, a study published in The Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research stated that a healthy spinal column can improve posture, increase range of motion, and reduce stress. Patients who attended regular chiropractic treatment sessions were also thought to be more concerned and proactive about their overall health. They seemed to take better care of themselves physically; often making the time to exercise regularly, make better and healthier nutritional choices, and get the proper amounts of sleep their body required. These better choices in turn end up also improving their quality of life.

1. Natural Stress Reduction. Every nerve in your body emerges from the vertebral column. Regular chiropractic treatments can play a vital role in improving nervous system functioning; this, in turn, helps minimize the effects of stress.

2. Decreased Blood Pressure. As your nervous system functions properly and more efficiently, oxygen, energy, and blood flow to your body also improves. This may help reduce or normalize your blood pressure. If you are taking medication to control your blood pressure, as prescribed by your physician, there is a possibility that you may want to speak with your referring physician to modify your dosage as you experience the benefits of chiropractic.

3. Better posture. An improved posture encourages better breathing patterns. A good supply of oxygen from better breathing patterns will improve energy. Along with increased oxygen to the brain, improvements in your posture reduce the risk of upper and lower back pain, fatigue, and aching of the joints. Each of these areas of improvement can have a positive effect on your overall quality of life.

4. Improved Healing. One of the most desired effects of chiropractic care is the facilitation of the body's ability to heal itself. Regular chiropractic adjustments can actually reduce the risk of injury to the body, tissues, and joints. A body that can heal itself will allow the individual to live a pain-free, healthy life.

5. Enhanced Joint Mobility. Regular visits to your chiropractor can help to improve your range of motion; thereby encouraging increased physical activity. Increased activity and movement leads to a much higher quality of life.
