Health Conditions that Chiropractic Care Can Help

Chiropractors are known for correcting spinal alignment abnormalities, relieving pain and dealing with other skeletal and muscular disorders. However, the list doesn't stop here. Researchers have found that chiropractic treatment is beneficial for a huge range of ailments, including connective tissue disorders, cancer and chronic sinusitis.

Here are a few of the health conditions that can be treated with chiropractic help:

Bell's Palsy

Bell's Palsy causes facial paralysis, hearing disorders and problems with the jaw and associated muscles. Chiropractors can create patient-centric treatment programs that are designed to improve motion, relieve pain and address other nerve related issues.

Asthma

Chiropractors can help patients with asthma by stimulating the rib cage muscles to ease breathing, optimize blood and lymph flow and enhance nervous system activity. All of this helps reduce symptoms like chest tightness and shortness of breath. When treating asthma, chiropractors typically use spinal manipulation and other modalities like stretching or trigger-point massage.

Fibromyalgia

Through chiropractic treatment, the mobility between your spinal vertebrae will be increased and repositioned. Chiropractors use gentle pressure or stretching, gentle movements of one area or targeted high-velocity thrusts to return the bones to a more normal position. Fibromyalgia can be treated with chiropractic care because it can reduce pain levels and increase cervical and lumbar ranges of motion.

Sinusitis

Sinuses are made of eight hollow spaces in the bones of the forehead, cheeks and temples. If you have sinusitis, the linings are inflamed, the tissues become full of mucus and drainage is blocked. The increased pressure causes pain, swelling around the eyes, chills, clogged passages, dizziness and loss of appetite. Chiropractic care can realign vertebrae and improve the lymphatic drainage of the head and neck.

Digestive Issues

The central nervous system controls the functions of the entire body, so when something is off it can affect your digestive system, causing Crohn's, IBS and other issues. Chiropractors treat the central nervous system and make sure the spine is properly aligned and functioning efficiently. The spine is an integral part of the body. When it's working efficiently, the rest of the body works efficiently as well. Many people report digestive issues significantly lessening, or completely diminishing, after chiropractic care.
