How your Billings Chiropractor can Help Your Health

When we think of chiropractic care, we usually think of popping and cracking backs into place.

That’s a big part of it… although it’s not exactly called “cracking” backs.  They’re spinal adjustments.  Anyway, we talked about why the back is a big area of focus in a recent blog post on how to explain chiropractic care.

But there are a bunch of other benefits to getting adjusted; some that don’t seem like a chiropractor is the right doctor for the job.  Because the entire body is all connected, and having a skeletal system that works the way it should, you can experience benefits that go beyond reducing your joint pain.

Here are a few of those benefits.

Benefits of Visiting your Billings Chiropractor

From less pain, to better sleep, to more energy.  Here are a few perks you may experience.

Reduced Reliance on Opioid Pain Relievers

This is a pretty easy correlation to figure out.  If you have less pain because your joints are all working together, instead of against each other, you can cut back on pain medication that you have to take.

Opioids can be a big problem for some people, and they’re incredibly addictive.  The more we can rely on natural treatments, like having a chiropractor in Billings adjust you, the less we have to rely on chemicals.

Fewer Headaches or Less Severe Headaches

Headaches happen for many reasons.  Sometimes it’s because you over-indulged the night before.  But often the headaches stem from tension that builds up due to a back, shoulder, neck, or other joints that are out of alignment.

Chiropractic care isn’t always going to eliminate chronic headaches or migraines, but it certainly can help in some situations.

Boost in Your Immune System

We don’t often associate an alignment with a better immune system, but there is correlation.

When your spinal health is all in order, your body sends fewer resources to the inflammation and pain that you once experienced.  This means those “troops” are freed up to help with any other issues that might come along.

Lower Blood Pressure

There are a few studies out there that have looked at hypertension (high blood pressure) and going through a chiropractic adjustment.  The bottom line is that being adjusted can have the same effect as taking certain high blood pressure medications.

The studies also show that these benefits can last for up to six months after the adjustment.

Adjustments have also been known to help those with low blood pressure as well.

Better Sleep at Night

Pain and discomfort are a big issue when it comes to trying to relax the body and get to sleep at night.  Moving easier throughout the day, helps keep that pain and discomfort at a minimum so that when it comes time to sleep you get to nod off quickly and sleep more soundly.
