The Many Benefits of Using a Chiropractor in Tucson
Millions of people across the globe use complementive and alternative medicine every year. However, many people are under the misconception that visiting a office is only necessary in extreme cases of muscular or nerve pain. While adjustments are incredibly useful for those purposes, those aren’t the only times when using a chiropractor is beneficial.
Chronic Lower Back and Neck Pain
It’s astounding how common lower back and neck pain are. In fact, around 80 percent of Americans experience varying levels of chronic lower back pain at some point in their lives, and neck pain is in the top five most common physical disorders in the United States.
Our spinal manipulations, however, can alleviate this pain and either prevent the pain from returning or make future bouts of pain less severe.
Benefits to Athletes
The therapies we provide offer many benefits to professional and amateur athletes that increase comfort and physical performance.
• Reduced pain after games and practice
• Shorter healing times after sustaining an injury
• Improved range of motion and flexibility
• Relieves mental and physical stress
• Improves overall pulmonary function
Improves Immune System Function
Believe it or not, manipulation of the spine has been linked to stronger immune systems. When the spine is out of alignment, it can cause problems in the nervous system. Since the nervous system and immune system are strongly linked, stress and dysfunction in the nervous system can lead to a compromised immune system, which creates an increased risk of catching various illnesses and makes it difficult to combat illnesses once contracted.
Realigning the spine, relieving stress and rectifying problems within the nervous system allows the immune system to function better and helps improve overall health.
Decreases Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is a problem that plagues many people across the country. Prolonged high blood pressure can lead to damaged arteries, poor heart health, kidney problems, increased risk of stroke and even heart failure.
Blood pressure can be managed with medications, but there are some negative side effects involved with blood pressure medication, such as drowsiness, anxiety, headaches, nausea, rash and dizziness.
However, high blood pressure can also be managed through adjusting of the neck and back. Realignment to the Atlas vertebra has been shown to relieve tension on arteries near the brain stem, lowering blood pressure for many patients.
Overall Joint Health
Many people know of the benefits that therapy offers to sufferers of joint pain, but it can also improve overall joint health. Less pain in the joints, more flexibility and a better ability to exercise relieves stress on every joint. With less tension on the joints and relaxed muscles, the joints become healthier and they are able to last much longer.
Chronic pain severely impacts mood. It’s hard to have a genuinely positive attitude when experiencing constant severe bouts of pain throughout the day. Our methodologies help eliminate the pain at its source, making it easier to relax and be happy.
In addition, chiro treatments have also been linked to lower anxiety levels, less severe symptoms of depression and overall improved mental health.
Headache and Migraine Relief
People can develop chronic headache and migraine problems as a result of nerve and spinal problems resulting from back misalignment. Realignments relieve nerve pain, solve many spinal issues and reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches. Cervical spine realignment is so beneficial to headache and migraine relief that it is behind only chronic back and neck pain as the most common reason people visit our office.
There is a lot of stress and tension on the body during pregnancy. The baby’s weight and position in the body, excess water weight, hormonal changes and a forced change in posture can all create various muscular and nerve pains, particularly in the back and neck. A misaligned pelvis due to changes in the pelvic structure as the body prepares for birth also causes issues for both mother and baby.
We provide pregnancy specific alignments that help relieve the excess stress on the body and joints during pregnancy. During a pelvic realignment, the baby will have more room to move and stretch, negating the possible effects of intrauterine constraint. Having a properly aligned pelvis also aids in the delivery process.
Benefits to Children
Many people believe alternative medicine is only for adults, but that’s not true. Many teens, young children, toddlers and even infants get our care for a variety of ailments. For instance, adjustments have been very effective in treating conditions such as colic in infants and mobility issues in toddlers. The treatments are very simple, gentle and can be done with a parent holding the child for added comfort and support.
Sciatica is a condition that results from the sciatic nerve either being damaged or put under significant amounts of stress. Sciatica causes intense shooting pain throughout the lower back and legs. Using realignments can relieve pressure from the sciatic nerve and lessen the pain from sciatica.
The nerves that run through the spine control nearly every facet of the human body, including the digestive tract. Specifically, the thoracic region of the spine contains nerves that control the digestive system. When the vertebra are out of alignment, it can damage the thoracic part of the spine, leading to digestive troubles such as indigestion, constipation and heartburn.
An adjustment relieves tension from the thoracic region and helps the digestive system return to optimal health.
Scoliosis is a condition in which the spine curves to the side. One of the negative side effects from scoliosis is chronic back pain due to the spine being severely out of alignment. Many nerves become pinched and damaged as a result of the curvature, and scoliosis may force the body into having poor posture.
Nontraditional treatment alongside prescribed physical therapy helps realign the spine and relieve the resulting back pain.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment
Carpal tunnel syndrome or CTS is becoming an increasingly common ailment in recent years. CTS develops when the carpal tunnel within the hand and wrist starts to swell. This swelling pinches the median nerve, which is the nerve that controls specific movements within the hand and upper forearm.
Pain and swelling from CTS can be managed with our care. The median nerve runs back to the cervical spine. We can pinpoint areas of misalignment around the cervical spine and provide some light stimulation within the wrist, hand and forearm to alleviate the pain and prevent it from returning.
Avoid Drug Treatments
While Alternative treatments can’t cure all conditions or alleviate every bit of pain and discomfort, they do provide patients with a safe and natural alternative to prescription pain medication. Not only is this needed much less frequently than drug therapies, but they also have fewer possible negative side effects and possess no risk of addiction.
Surgery is the most drastic step in alleviating body pain or treating severe ailments. There’s no denying that surgery is sometimes necessary in order properly treat certain conditions, illnesses and injuries. However, CAM therapies are so effective at relieving pain and improving overall heath and quality of life that the need for surgery in numerous circumstances may become entirely unnecessary.
