The overarching goal for every patient we see at Peak Chiropractic is whole body health. We take a holistic & comprehensive chiropractic approach, which means we do more than just relieve pain. In 2017, 35 million adults sought chiropractic care, most of whom did so for pain relief. However, millions of those people continued long after their initial symptoms were remedied because of the whole body health benefits they received.
With more people than ever making the switch from general physician care to chiropractic care, our team at Peak decided to assemble eight great reasons to consider chiropractic care in 2018.
1. Pain Relief
Whether you’re experiencing back, shoulder, or neck pain, or weakness in your arms and hands; chiropractic care can be a great solution for you. A chiropractor can help alleviate these kinds of pain by aligning your spine with various manipulations. At Peak, we start by assessing your health history and physical condition to derive a care plan unique to you. Every individual is different and requires slightly different care depending on like variations bone density, the presence of osteoporosis, injured joints, and much more. Even regarding cases of headache pain or sciatica, many patients report immediate and dramatic relief.
2. Positive Lifestyle Shifts
Much of the pain we eliminate doesn’t originate from an accident or injury. Some joint inflammation we treat can be attributed to poor nutrition, dehydration, stress, sitting at a desk, or spending a great deal of time holding a cell phone. We help patients identify triggers and map out plans that can correct conditions. We are passionate about providing the tools to improve our patients’ lifestyles outside of our four walls.
3. Sinus Issue & Allergy Relief
Most people are surprised to found out how effective chiropractic care can be in remedying many sinus and allergy problems. Some patients we see who have taken medications for years - whether by injection, prescription, or OTC treatments - are able to find freedom from those drugs.
4. Children’s Pain Relief
We treat very young patients who suffer from colic, ear infections, acid reflux, and more with chiropractic care. It’s not unusual for parents to see their kids’ health issues remedied after just a few visits with us. Again, we treat the whole body, including the brain and gut, which means there are few day-to-day health problems that we can’t address, even in children.
5. Help With Neurological Challenges
Chiropractic therapy can correct vertebral subluxation common in patients with epilepsy and seizures. Patients with multiple sclerosis also report that specific spinal adjustments they receive at Peak Chiropractic bring significant positive results.
6. Restoring Healthy Blood Pressure
One of the greatest but lesser-known benefits of chiropractic care with a focus on whole body health is blood pressure stabilization. Patients with hypertension may find better results from chiropractic care than from blood pressure drugs, believe it or not. Conversely, chiropractic treatment can also help patients with hypotension, raising too-low blood pressure to normal levels.
7. Surgery Avoidance
Leading experts, including many published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, will suggest patients consult a chiropractor before deciding on back surgery. Surgery inherently causes a great deal of bodily trauma while remedying the ailment, so if chiropractic care can alleviate the pain while being unobtrusive, it may be the better choice.
8. Better Athletic Performance
Athletes who seek our chiropractic care routinely report better functionality and performance. Whether you participate in team sports, individual sports, are a runner or climber, or practice yoga, chiropractic care makes the process more successful and more fun.
