5 Potential Health Benefits of Regular Chiropractic Care at Tigard Chiropractic Clinic

The 24 independent vertebrae of the spinal column make it possible to move throughout your day. When your spine or any of its supporting joints, discs, and muscles aren't functioning properly for one reason or another, you may experience some degree of discomfort. While pain relief is a common reason to visit a Tigard chiropractic clinic, it's not the only potential health benefit associated with chiropractic care.

1. Improved Nerve Communication

The various nerves within the body send signals to each other and to the brain. It's important for these nerves, which branch out from the spinal column, to effectively communicate. Chiropractic care helps achieve this goal by focusing on specific areas of the central nervous system with different manipulations.

2. Better Joint Motion and Coordination

Many things can affect how joints move, including the inflammation and swelling of nearby tissues. Specific chiropractic stretches can loosen muscles to prevent stiffness and keep tendons tension-free. Chiropractors often recommend stretching routines that can improve flexibility and help joints, bones, and muscles work together more efficiently.

3. Improved Posture

Many instances of spine-related pain can be aggravated by the way you stand and sit throughout your day. One of the goals of chiropractic treatment is to improve the natural alignment of your spine. Doing so can gradually improve your posture as you become accustomed to sitting and standing in ways that don't place added pressure on your spine.

4. Relief from Arthritis Pain

A common cause of spine pain is the gradual deterioration of soft tissues around the joints of the spine (facet joints). Arthritis can also increase inflammation to the point where nerve roots are affected. Chiropractic manipulations increase circulation, which may ease inflammation and help tissues around joints heal. Arthritis may be further managed with gentle spinal manipulations combined with exercise and dietary changes.

5. Less Dependence on Pain Medications

The body often reacts to chiropractic manipulations by producing more endorphins. Produced by the brain and nervous system, these hormones are the body's natural painkillers. The increased production of endorphins may lessen your dependence on pain medications, some of which have risky side effects with prolonged use.

Routine chiropractic care may reduce your risk of developing common conditions such as non-specific low back pain and help you successfully manage ongoing discomfort. You don't have to come to a chiropractic clinic only when you're experiencing pain; if you are regularly active in sports or wish to improve your overall mobility and wellbeing, you may also benefit from chiropractic care.
