How Chiropractic Care Can Improve Your Overall Quality of Life

Over 35 million people are treated annually, with 77% of patients describing their care as very effective in the past year, and over 20,000 healthcare systems across the US have added chiropractic care to their pain management standard. To learn more about how the treatment can improve your life, let’s examine what chiropractic care is and review its methods and benefits.


Whether you live in Dunedin, Largo, Riverview, or St. Petersburg, Florida, if you’re looking for quality chiropractic care, Drs. Stephen StellerRyan GarciaJustin Murray, and the trained professionals at Spinal Correction Centers can help you.


Understanding chiropractic care


Chiropractic is a form of care that works either manually or using special instruments to manipulate your spine or joints to reduce pain, correct alignment, and improve functionality in your body. This type of care can be used by itself to treat various issues but is also a common technique of complementary treatment for other methods. 


Your musculoskeletal system (which includes your muscles, tendons, cartilage and bone) and nervous system are vital parts of the body. Treating problems in these areas can relieve pain in a variety of ways. Many people use chiropractic care to manage pain in their lower back, neck, and muscles.


Methods and benefits


To accomplish these pain-relieving goals, we use multiple methods, including joint and spinal adjustments, soft tissue therapy, exercises and stretches, joint bracing or taping, and recommendations for nutritional changes to help reduce pain. These are alternatives to relying on medications to find relief and avoiding surgeries or other treatments.


There are many benefits to this method, including the following:


Relieves pain from headaches


Treatments like spinal manipulation do more than adjust your back; they can also relieve tension headaches and target other types of headaches that originate in your neck, which can give you relief from chronic headaches as well.


Reduces reliance on opioids


Opioids and other pain relievers are common medications for managing pain, but chiropractic care alleviates your need to use them by reducing pain to the point where they aren’t necessary, and if pain persists, it can be managed by other means. Studies demonstrate that seeing your chiropractor for pain relief can reduce the need for medications as opposed to just going to your primary care doctor.


Reduces symptoms of osteoporosis


This condition causes your bones to thin and weaken, and over time can cause them to fracture or break more easily. Chiropractic treatments can help reduce the pain associated with osteoarthritis and realign joints to help correct how much your bones rub together.


Improves posture


Posture can be affected by many things, including how we walk, run or sit. Sitting for long periods is especially damaging to your posture, and chiropractic treatments can improve posture as well as relieve the associated pain in your head, neck, and shoulders.


All of these and other benefits can make a difference in the amount of chronic pain you endure on a regular basis and improve your quality of life.
