There’s nothing quite like being off the back of a chiropractic appointment (pun not intended). In fact, the same sentiment applies to many allied health appointments. If you think this sounds like an odd sentiment, we challenge you to think back to the aftermath of your last remedial massage or dental clean. Didn’t you feel so spongy in the shoulders? Didn’t your mouth feel so clean that you never wanted to eat again?
When exiting our Croydon chiropractic centre, the sentiment is similar. Your neck and spine will feel so well-adjusted that you won’t even want to contemplate sitting at your work desk. The thought of craning your neck to read a smartphone will send a chill down your…well, spine.
Skeletal harmony is just one of the many benefits of chiropractic care. Keep reading to learn our top three reasons why you should book our Croydon Park chiropractor (and, for the record, if you choose to, our phone number is (02) 8721 6534 and you can locate our online booking portal here).
1. Eases back pain without medication or invasive surgery
Why invest in medication when you can go straight to the source? In the same vein, why undergo invasive surgery when you can fix the problem externally? Spinal manipulation is a time-efficient, more cost-effective way to straighten a spine in one go. You’re neither drawing the process out nor requiring recovery time. Moreover, you’re most likely saving money in the process.
The American College of Physicians recommends that people experiencing lower back pain should prioritise non-medical treatments first. For this reason, chiropractic adjustments and pregnancy go together like morning sickness and ginger ale. Why? Because pregnancy can be rife with lower back pain—and chiropractic adjustments work wonders for neck and lower back pain in particular.
2. Relieves headaches
Have you ever heard of a tension headache? Similar to a migraine, a tension headache often occurs due to neck or spinal misalignment. There have been over 200 studies that support the relationship between chiropractic adjustments and headache relief. Moreover, a 2016 study found that six to eight sessions of upper thoracic spinal manipulation were more headache-relieving than movement- and exercise-based strategies.
3. Reduces inflammation
Inflammation is a leading cause of joint issues, pain, and tension. Leave it unchecked for long enough and you’ve got yourself a case of chronic inflammation and potentially chronic pain. How can you prevent inflammation? Well, one of the ways is actually through chiropractic adjustments. Off the back of reduced inflammation, you can enjoy further benefits such as reduced muscle tension, as well as relief from joint pain and chronic lower back pain.
We could go on and on about the benefits of chiropractic care, but hopefully, this alone has made our case. If you think you could benefit from chiropractic care, call Pro Health at (02) 8721 6534 and ask for our chiropractic services in Croydon. Alternatively, you can book an appointment online via our online booking portal. We would say to give yourself a pat on the back, but that might exacerbate the problem. Hang tight and leave the back-based adjustments to us!
