If you’ve ever visited a chiropractor, you know the benefits of the treatments for muscle and joint pain – and the improved posture that helps prevent them both.
But what surprises most people is the broad range of other conditions that chiropractic care can help sufferers cope with.
In addition to shortness of breath, asthma sufferers often complain about the back pain that results from chronic coughing. Chiropractic treatments are recognized as an effective way to help relieve that pain.
A variety of studies indicate that chiropractic treatments are effective at lowering the frequency and severity of migraine headaches.
Chiropractic adjustments can alleviate some of the pain and stiffness associated with joint degeneration and arthritis.
4. Parkinson’s Disease
Although the exact causes of Parkinson’s are unknown, many studies have found a link between the disease and accidents or actions that cause head trauma and spine misalignment. Chiropractic treatments can realign the spine and relieve nerve pressure to reduce pain.
5. High Blood Pressure
Numerous studies report lower blood pressure levels for weeks following a single chiropractic session.
6. Cancer Pain
Needless to say, cancer patients have enough to deal with. Cancer treatments like chemotherapy are such an assault on the body, patients are often bedridden due to fatigue and soreness in muscles and joints. Chiropractic care can reduce the pain and improve muscle and joint movement to help make patients more mobile.
7. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
A result of repetitive strain on the wrist, carpal tunnel syndrome can cause tingling, itching, burning and soreness in the wrists and hands. Often caused by poor wrist posture, chiropractors can make adjustments to help relieve existing pain, suggest stretches that patients can do themselves to ward off the onset of pain and advise on posture improvements to help prevent symptoms from recurring.
