Why Chiropractic Care is A Great Preventive

Did you know you don’t have to be in pain to benefit from chiropractic care? It’s true! Regular chiropractic treatments can go a long way in preventing pain before it even starts.

At DMC Healthcare in Dallas, TX, experienced chiropractor, Bryan Weddle, DC, offers routine chiropractic services to support your general health and wellness.

The many benefits of routine chiropractic care

Chiropractic treatments are not only effective at preventing pain from injuries or degenerative conditions, they also offer many other short-term and long-term health benefits. Some of these benefits include:

Increased joint mobility

The chiropractic manipulations and other techniques Dr. Weddle uses in treatment improves the overall flexibility and function of your joints. This can reduce your risk for arthritis, joint inflammation, and joint injuries.

Builds stronger muscles

Chiropractic care can tighten loose muscles while relaxing tight ones. This helps with the contractibility and strength of your muscles while lessening your risk for muscle soreness, tension, and tears.

Reduces inflammation

Inflammation is a common cause of underlying aches and pains. Regular chiropractic care increases your blood circulation and helps reduce inflammation throughout your body.

Lessens stress and improves energy

Chiropractic treatments keep your spine in a healthy alignment and support the overall function of your body. When everything is working properly and you’re pain-free, you benefit from increased energy, improved mood, and less stress.

Improved sleep quality

It’s difficult to get a high quality of sleep when you’re uncomfortable or in pain. Routine chiropractic treatments keep your body relaxed and can significantly reduce pain that keeps you awake. Better sleep quality promotes general good health, a happy mood, and enhanced energy levels.

Boosts the immune system

Your immune system connects directly with your spinal cord, and chiropractic adjustments improve the function of the spinal nerves. Regular adjustments keep the spine in proper alignment and ensure your immune system is functioning as it should.

A healthy immune system protects your overall health, and regular chiropractic care can reduce your risk for colds and flu, autoimmune disorders, and chronic diseases.

How chiropractic care can change your pain game

If you’re already experiencing neck pain, knee pain, or other types of chronic pain, chiropractic treatments can certainly reduce its frequency and severity.

Regular adjustments can also lessen your dependence on medications that can interfere with your long-term health. Strong painkillers often cause unpleasant side effects and can even increase your risk for addiction. All of these complications can reduce your quality of life and potentially lead to long-term complications.

Being in pain all the time also affects your mental health. Many with chronic pain also struggle with depression and anxiety. As chiropractic care can improve your mood and bring balance back into your body, you can enjoy not only pain relief but relief of depressive and anxious symptoms.

To achieve and maintain optimal health and wellness, Dr. Weddle creates a chiropractic care plan just for you. He may recommend weekly or monthly treatments to address existing pain and other issues while helping to reduce your risk for additional health complications and chronic disease.
