One Crack Won't Fix Your Back
Would you fix a broken door with some tape? Or a broken knee with paracetamol?
We’ll assume the answer is no.
After all, it’d literally and figuratively be like putting a Band-Aid on a bullet wound.
When it comes to your back, proactive care is key as being reactive will only hide your symptoms for a little while.
Unfortunately, expensive chiropractic care rates and overpriced insurance policies lead many of us to only seek care for our backs when we’re in pain and abandon treatment once the pain has subsided.
But with 65 million Americans reporting having suffered a recent back pain episode and 8% of the population with chronic back pain, the widespread issue requires a different and more efficient approach: proactive chiropractic care.
The Benefits of Proactive Chiropractic Care
While cracking your back once to adjust your spine can help relieve tension and pain in the short term, it, unfortunately, doesn’t address the root of the problem. On the other hand, long-term chiropractic care, whether it’d be on a wellness or maintenance level, will be much more beneficial to your back and the rest of your body.
Improving Your Posture
Most of us spend our days sitting, typing away at our desks. In fact, the average adult sits ten hours a day. Now, the issue is that sitting for too long can really damage your spine, especially if you have bad posture. And this can, in turn, generate chronic problems such as sciatica or back pain.
Regularly seeing an experienced chiropractor will allow you to prevent these issues by helping you improve and maintain good posture using specific exercises to strengthen your core muscles over time. Your doctor should also work with you to implement healthy movement strategies.
Reducing the Risk of Injury
We’re all guilty of this; we wait until a physical problem such as neck pain, headache, or back pain becomes seriously debilitating before seeing a healthcare professional. Yet, in many cases, these issues could have been rapidly treated and even prevented with regular chiropractic sessions. Indeed, chiropractors can correct spinal misalignments and relieve tightness in specific areas on a regular basis, preventing small issues from ever-escalating and causing serious and painful injuries.
Alleviating Stress and Anxiety
Research has shown that regular chiropractic care can successfully reduce anxiety and stress levels. Indeed, chiropractic therapy and spinal adjustments can decrease your cortisol levels, which helps reduce the impact of chronic stress on your body. Now, stress is a common cause of lower and mid-back pain, especially because as you stress, your breathing patterns change, causing tension and strain on your back. As a result, by addressing the physical symptoms of your stress and anxiety, long-term chiropractic therapy can help improve your back-related issues, along with your mental and overall physical health.
