Perhaps you have been to a chiropractor and have had an adjustment, but don't quite understand the entire process. Or perhaps you have an upcoming appointment and you are wanting to know a little more about the term adjustment. Chiropractors adjust the spine - or manipulate spinal vertebrae - in order to reduce subluxation (improper spinal alignment) to promote sustained improved health.

The five most significant benefits to chiropractic adjustments include: 1) restoring joint motion,  2) boosting the immune system, 3) reducing nerve interference, 4) reducing pain, and 5) increasing energy. Some patient need healthcare assistance with one specific area, but - in general - chiropractic adjustments provide benefits in all five of these overarching areas.

Restoring Joint Motion

  • Your body is a complex system of moving parts. With 132 joints in your spine alone, ensuring excellent joint motion is imperative. Reduced joint motion in any one specific location has a cascading effect that eventually causes reduced movement or other serious related health challenges throughout the entire body.
  • Chiropractic adjustments can reduce the pressure on joints due to misalignment and help those joints work towards the return to a natural, normal range of motion.
Boosting the Immune System

  • Three distinct systems in your body - the immune, the endocrine, and the nervous system - all need to function in together and in sync in order to maintain optimum health. These three systems fight inflammation. Inflammation, when out of control, can cause short-term and long-term health changes. 
  • Chiropractic adjustments have the ability to reduce the stress placed on the nervous system and have been found to increase white blood cell counts, both of which help to fight and reduce inflammation.
Reducing Nerve Interference

  • Your nervous system includes billions of nerves within two distinct components - the central nervous system (brain and spine) and the peripheral nervous system (all other areas of the body). Optimal health requires a properly functioning nervous system. Nerves are often impinged by misalignment - including misaligned spinal vertebrae (often dubbed as "a pinched nerve" in common patient vernacular).
  • One result of a chiropractic adjustment is to alleviate any type pressure than may be adding stress to a nerve or portions of nerves throughout the nervous system. 
Reducing Pain

  • Low back and/or neck injuries, migraines, carpal tunnel, fibromyalgia are among the most common patient conditions which cause significant and often continuous pain. Causes for these types of conditions are numerous, as are potential solutions.
  • The chiropractic adjustment is a natural option that has been proven to be effective in reducing and/or alleviating this type of pain (see Harvard Health Pub, 2016 ). The relief that patients feel after an adjustment may bring an end to chronic, long term health-related suffering. 
Increasing Energy 

  • Millions of Americans experience chronic fatigue, exhaustion, and daily sluggishness. The connection between the feeling of being constantly tired and poor health is often overlooked as patients hope that a little more sleep and a little less exertion may solve the issue.
  • If and when it doesn't, a chiropractic adjustment may bring needed relief. Optimal health is based on a steady and constant flow of electrical impulses throughout the entire body. Those impulses can only be held steady if their spinal pathways remain unencumbered. Adjustments help to eliminate barriers within these pathways, reducing the energy needed and used for the electrical impulse flow. 
Whether restoring joint motion, boosting the immune system, reducing nerve interference, reducing pain or increasing energy, the chiropractic adjustment is important to greater health.

It is months later and you are still hoping to honor your New Year’s resolution to eat a little better . . . eat a little healthier. But, the task seems to be daunting and difficult, and you don’t really know where to start.  Without a doubt, making any type of lifestyle change is complex. There are all types of pitfalls and setbacks that can and do occur – especially when it comes to the foods we eat and the drinks we drink.

But, that doesn’t mean that change is impossible. In fact, there are some very simple and easy steps that you can take that will gradually lead you to better eating and better health, small step by small step. And those steps can and do add up! The following five options can be that new beginning you are seeking. Here we go!
