When you think about improving your overall health, you might think about fruits, vegetables, and gym memberships.
But your health journey doesn’t have to stop there.
Here, our team of experts at Nebben Physical Medicine in Clarksville, Tennessee, shows you just how much regular chiropractic care can do for you.
Benefits of regular chiropractic care
Chiropractic care is a type of medicine that helps your body heal naturally through hands-on manipulation from a trained professional, like our experienced chiropractor Dr. Loren Nebben.
Unfortunately, many people think chiropractic care is just about “cracking” backs. From pain relief to improved performance, here are just some of the ways chiropractic care goes beyond the stereotype to deliver whole-health benefits.
Less neck and back pain
Tension, stress, and alignment issues all contribute to chronic neck and back pain. Getting regular adjustments with Dr. Nebben effectively reduces the amount of pain you feel by carefully realigning your bones and relieving pressure on your muscles.
Help for osteoarthritis
Of the over 100 types of arthritis, osteoarthritis is the most common. It occurs when the cartilage protecting your bones wears away over time, leaving your bones exposed. With every movement, your bones rub and bump against each other, causing your joint to swell and stiffen.
Chiropractic adjustments can relieve osteoarthritis pain by restoring joint alignment and reducing the amount of friction between bones.
Reduced scoliosis symptoms
Scoliosis is a painful condition in which your spine develops an unnatural sideways curvature. Fortunately, gentle manipulations from a chiropractor can help alleviate some of the pain associated with scoliosis.
Fewer and less severe headaches
Headaches often stem from tension in your neck muscles. Careful spinal manipulation quickly diffuses that tension, resulting in fewer headache attacks and less severe symptoms.
Are you a serial sloucher? Your entire body, including your back, neck, digestive system, and respiratory system, pays the price. But with regular chiropractic care, we can help you improve your posture and, as a result, your overall health.
Enhanced athletic performance
Ready to give your workouts and practices a boost? Chiropractic care is the best place to start. Athletes whose bodies are in alignment also tend to have better joint mobility, less pain, and less tissue restriction.
More affordable option
For some, chiropractic adjustments are a more affordable option compared to conventional pain treatments, such as surgery. Talk to us about all your options, and we can help you decide which is right for you and your budget.
Chiropractic care has also proven to be effective. One study found that 92% of participants who had received chiropractic care reported pain relief; another 80% noticed improved mobility.
Medication-free pain relief
One of the main reasons we love recommending chiropractic care to our patients is because it offers a medication-free way to deal with their pain. Medications can be an effective pain management strategy, but you can become dependent on or even addicted to them.
