Improve Your Well-Being With Regular Chiropractic Care

Each year, an estimated 35 million Americans seek treatment from a chiropractor. And many of them do so because they have back pain. In fact, at any given time, an estimated 31 million Americans suffer from low back pain, which results in more than 264 million lost workdays.

Freeing yourself from chronic pain is definitely a good reason to avail yourself to corrective chiropractic care. But, did you know that regular chiropractic care can greatly enhance your overall health and well-being?

The fact is, your spinal health plays a central role in your overall health. In this blog, John Hunt, DC, at Chiropractic Health Care Center Of Glendora explains how having a healthy spine can help give you optimal health.

Spinal health and overall health are connected

While it might seem like a pretty bold statement to say that your spine plays a central role in your overall health, this isn’t an exaggeration. Your spine provides the foundation for nearly all of your systemic functions.

Your spine consists of a number of elements, including 33 small bones called vertebrae, and these vertebrae interact with 220 ligaments, 120 muscles, 100 joints, and 31 pairs of nerves, which snake through the openings of your vertebrae and deliver messages between your brain and muscles. This network is important not only for movement, but also for the healthy operation of your internal organs.

Furthermore, your spine plays a crucial role in your central nervous system and musculoskeletal system. When your spine is properly aligned, your body can operate optimally. But, if something causes an imbalance in your spine — perhaps because you experience an injury or spend too much time sitting with a bad posture — this can disrupt the healthy operation of your body.

Spinal health is connected to energy and mood, too 

Chiropractic care isn’t just helpful in addressing pain and physical maladies. Regular chiropractic care can also enhance your mental health, boost your energy level and mood, and even improve your quality of sleep.

This is because spinal misalignments can cause hormonal imbalances, and hormonal imbalances can cause stress, anxiety, and depression. Furthermore, hormonal imbalances can affect the quality of sleep.

Restoring and maintaining a healthy spinal alignment through regular chiropractic care can improve your hormonal balance and improve the ability of your nerves to communicate with your brain and body systems.

Pinpointing and treating spinal issues

Spinal misalignments are often difficult to pinpoint without the help of a knowledgeable professional, such as a chiropractor. While you may feel like something is off, you may not know what it is.

Here at Chiropractic Health Care Center Of Glendora, we use an advanced level of corrective chiropractic care called Chiropractic BioPhysics®, also known as the Ideal Spine protocol. Our practitioners are especially trained and certified to use this technique to identify spinal misalignments.

The beauty of the Ideal Spine protocol is that it’s evidence-based, so it not only enables us to identify the spinal misalignments and get to the root causes of your pain, but it also provides a uniform treatment plan with consistent and predictable results.

Both the practitioner and the patient can monitor the progress every step of the way. Furthermore, by incorporating regular chiropractic care, spinal misalignments can be identified before they become a major issue.
