Our Top 9 Reasons to Get Regularly Adjusted

Written By Spine and Rehabilitation of Morris, LLC on May 28, 2021

Benefits of ChiropracticChiropractic care treats the whole body; not just the spine. At Spine and Rehabilitation of Morris Cedar Knolls, we do more than provide pain relief. We’ve compiled our top nine reasons to get regularly adjusted so you can see what’s truly in it for you.

1. Decreases reliance on opioids 

There’s a huge push to achieve better health without pills, which we strongly support and encourage. This large 2020 study found that chiropractic patients were less likely to get an opioid prescription than patients who don’t see chiropractors.

2. Back pain relief 

Chiropractors have so many ways to help you manage and often eliminate back pain. This 2017 study review found that spinal manipulation produced at least short-term pain relief for back pain.

3. Neck pain relief

The key to relieving neck pain is addressing the root cause, not popping pills. Studies like this one found that chiropractic care provided superior neck pain relief compared to medication.

4. Headache/migraine relief 

Studies show that cervical and upper thoracic spine manipulation provided relief in people with chronic headaches. This was still the case at a 3-month follow-up.

5. Lower blood pressure

Studies show that adjustments are able to lower blood pressure. Even better, benefits are shown to last at least six months after an adjustment. 

6. Reduce inflammation 

Inflammation is often the enemy when experiencing joint pain, issues, and tension, and chronic inflammation is linked to many diseases, including cancer and heart disease. Chiropractic care has been shown to reduce inflammation.

7. Help athletic performance. 

Quite a few professional and college level sports teams have a team chiropractor. Adjustments can reduce pain and tension caused by sports and activity.

8. Boost immune function 

Since your immune system relies on your nervous system to achieve optimal function, a misalignment in your spine can hamper your defenses. Chiropractic helps keep immune function robust, which studies show means fewer colds for you.

9. Improve digestion 

There are nerves in your spine that are connected to your stomach. A misalignment can trigger a host of digestive issues, including heartburn, gas and reflux. Chiropractic care can eliminate the neural misfiring and restore optimal digestive health.
