Some people wonder if visiting a chiropractor will actually yield noticeable results. At Encompass Chiropractic Centers, we see the benefits people experience from chiropractic treatment every day. We want to share with you a few of the benefits we have observed.
• It increases your mobility. Regular visits to see your chiropractor can help align your joints and correct or prevent spinal and pelvic misalignments. These adjustments can drastically improve your range of motion and can also help alleviate pain associated with specific movements. Your chiropractor may also suggest exercises and stretches you can do in the comfort of your own home to help improve your flexibility and avoid muscle tightness.
• It helps improve your posture. A chiropractor can assess your posture and create a plan to help you improve it, which can benefit both your appearance and your physical comfort. During their assessment, they’ll examine how you stand from behind and from the sides. As they do this, they’ll note how arched your back is, if your pelvis is twisted, if your shoulders are uneven, or if there are any other symmetry issues. After their assessment, they’ll make adjustments and give you exercises and stretches to do on your own to help strengthen your muscles.
• It improves your immune functions. Most people know a chiropractor can help with your back, neck, and hip pain, but did you know that regular visits can also improve your immune system? Your nervous system helps regulate your body and fight bacterial and viral illnesses, and your central nervous system is made up of the brain and spinal cord, which is housed in your spinal column. Keeping your nervous system aligned and healthy can have major health benefits that go far beyond just feeling less stiff or alleviating back and neck pain.
