The other possible benefits of chiropractic care are endless. You
are not just treating one isolated part of the body when you improve the alignment of the spine. You are allowing
the entire system to function more efficiently.
This is another example of the system’s integrated nature. When
you correct alignment of nerve signals to one part of the body, you do not just work to ameliorate whatever
condition brought that patient in for treatment in the first place. You also allow for clearer, faster signals to
reach that entire region of the body.
The ability to treat isolated, discernable health conditions is a
straightforward benefit of chiropractic treatment, but its effects also include a less describable improvement of
the functioning of all bodily systems. Not all systems deteriorate to the point where the need for improvement is
obvious. Some systems have a less discernible downward slide that may not even be noticed until their full
potential is once again restored and realized.
Many benefits of chiropractic care have been observed both by
science and by anecdotal evidence from patients themselves. It is true that one must take into account the
possibility of a placebo effect wherein patients simply convince themselves that they are experiencing an
improvement in their symptoms regardless of the efficacy of a treatment protocol, but the consistent nature of
positive feedback and the research that has supported these claims is difficult to ignore. The benefits of
chiropractic care for patients are very real.
You may view the ability to treat back problems, neck problems,
and problems with the spine without having to resort to surgery as a major benefit of chiropractic services.
Chiropractic care may not allow patients to avoid surgery in all cases, but it has allowed many to forego this
The word invasive is not used in this case to mean that it is
entirely detrimental. Rather, surgery can do a lot of good when necessary. It is only meant that surgery by its
very nature is an invasive procedure. This description separates it from chiropractic care which is non-invasive
and only seeks to rearrange what is already present in the body. It works with the body in its natural form as
opposed to forcibly entering the body to make alterations.
It has also been noted that the lungs may be freed up and
breathing may be improved through the utilization of chiropractic services. This is easily understood as
chiropractic adjustments may restore the body to its correct posture which maximizes the space available for lungs
to expand during each breath. A person who is hunched over may be physically restricting breathing through posture
so a reversal of this postural abnormality would restore breathing capacity. Because respiratory functioning is
such an important part of the overall functioning of the body, this restoration of breathing capacity is no small
It has been noted that chiropractic care has managed to improve
conditions such as the common cold, allergies, and asthma in some patients. After gaining a working knowledge of
how the body works and how chiropractic care improves the state of the body as a complete entity, this is not
surprising. This ability to improve numerous health afflictions is in addition to the way that this treatment has
been known to aid of the nervous system in its functioning as well as assisting the functioning of the heart and
the coronary arteries. The effects of chiropractic care seem to go well into every system of the body in practice
as well as in theory.
Some patients also experience a better feeling of overall health.
This may included lessened anxiety, depression, and tension. By allowing some patients to relax and improve their
mood state, the effects of chiropractic treatment extend further into the promotion of an overall sense of well
being. Aside from the feeling of relief that surely accompanies a reduction in pain and physical problems, these
results can often be found when chiropractic care is used solely as a preventative measure.
Finally, chiropractic care has been known to increase a patient’s
energy level and, of course, improve the patient’s ability to heal. With all the benefits that chiropractic care
can provide, it is no wonder that this alternative method of healing continues to grow in popularity.
