Chiropractic Treatment: Wise, Safe & Effective
Those who have never visited a chiropractor are probably unaware of the incredible health benefits that it can bring to your life. There is usually a misconception among many people that chiropractors are not qualified medical practitioners and as a result they don’t offer scientifically proven treatment methods, but that isn’t true. On the contrary, qualified chiropractors use natural and evidence based methods to administer treatment to their patients. All treatment that they provide have not only been clinically tested and proven to be effective but also don’t expose the patient to dangerous side effects as is usually the case with the traditional medical model.
Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment
- Prevents Cold and flus
Many chiropractic patients have reported a decrease in cold/flu symptoms following a course of treatment. Chiropractic patients have greater immune competence as compared to patients who haven’t received chiropractic care. There are controlled evidence based studies to support that chiropractic adjustments help to reduce pain and inflammation due to various immune system responses.

- Back and Neck Pain Relief
Chiropractors are known to be the "go-to" health care professionals to safely and effectively treat acute neck and back pain. A medical doctor may prescribe muscle relaxers or anti-inflammatory drugs while an orthopedic specialist may suggest surgery. However, when you visit an experienced chiropractor, he/she will use natural methods to treat your back problem through spinal adjustments and other conservative techniques like muscle release therapy, exercise, and various physical therapy modalities. Chiropractors use their refined skills to bring musculoskeletal structure into alignment.
- Better Sleep
Various studies have revealed that the majority of the Canadian population suffers from sleeping disorders. Chiropractors use specialized treatment to help reduce pain and anxiety caused by spinal misalignment/restrictions, thus ensuring that the patient gets better sleep. Many patients who receive chiropractic spinal adjustments report improved sleeping patterns.
- Better Posture
Chiropractors are one of the best health care professionals when it comes to identifying the root cause of poor posture. They use special tools to conduct extensive analysis on spinal alignment to know where the problem lies. They then administer the right treatment to remove irritation from soft tissues and joints to restore proper posture, motion, and healthy joint function. These techniques combined with a healthy lifestyle will help decrease the chances of developing the dreadful "wear and tear" disease: arthritis.
- Improved mood
Various research studies have shown that chiropractic treatment can help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. Chiropractic care helps to improve the amount of good/happy hormones (e.g. Serotonin) in the body which improves overall mood http://www.studleychiropractic.com/studies/Depression_Draft1.pdf
As seen above, chiropractic care has many health benefits. You can expect to reap the rewards of care if you follow through with the recommended treatment plan. Of course, it has to make sense to you. If it doesn't, then try out a different chiropractor! There are many styles of practice so it's important to find the right fit for you.
Certain chiropractors are leading in concussion rehab via Dr. Fred Carrick's work. Dr. Fred Carrick, is a world renown chiropractor and a pioneer in healing patients with various brain and neurological disorders. After participating in Dr. Carrick's intense yet exciting weekend seminars over the past few years, I too can help people with concussions and it's plethora of side effects (such as chronic pain, dizziness, poor concentration insomnia, etc.) which is new and exciting and proving to be better than the "wait and see" approach via the traditional medical model. Chiropractic treatment is a natural technique and is highly recommended for people suffering from neck and back pain, sport injuries, arthritis, sprains/strains, whiplash, concussions, car accidents as well as poor posture. It is a great option for people who want to improve their overall health.
