Those who have never experienced chiropractic care may be completely unaware of the incredible health benefits of regularly seeing a chiropractor. Whether it’s because you are experiencing a specific problem or just want to improve your overall health and well-being, when you visit a chiropractor, you’re taking a positive, natural approach to your healthcare.

Here are 10 health benefits that regular chiropractic care can provide for you and your family.

Fewer Colds and Flus
Research indicates that Chiropractic patients have incredibly strong immune systems. Dr. Ronald Pero, chief of cancer prevention research at New York’s Preventive Medicine Institute measured 107 individuals who had received long-term Chiropractic care. The chiropractic patients were shown to have a 200% greater immune competence than people who had not received chiropractic care.

Better Sleep
With 40 million Americans experiencing a chronic sleeping disorder and 62% of American adults experiencing problems sleeping multiple nights a week, Americans desperately need to sleep better. Common sense tells us that a good night’s sleep contributes to good health. How does chiropractic help? Chiropractic treatment helps to reduce the pain and associated anxiety of spinal misalignments which often interfere with sleep patterns. In a double-blind study published in 2005, one third of the chiropractic patients reported that their sleep patterns improved immediately after treatment.

Less Pain
When the spine is subluxated, or misaligned, due to accidents and injuries, pain is a common symptom. Research tells us that chiropractic adjustments are effective for not only decreasing immediate pain symptoms but reducing the likelihood of future problems as well.

Saved Healthcare Costs
Chiropractic care has also been shown to be more cost-effective than the medical approach of drugs or surgery. For example, the 1993 Manga Report published by the Canadian government concluded:

“There would be highly significant cost savings if more management of low-back pain was transferred from physicians to chiropractors. Users of chiropractic care have substantially lower health care costs, especially inpatient costs, than those who use medical care only.”

Decreased Dependence On Drugs
Each year, about 4.5 million Americans visit their doctor’s office or the emergency room because of adverse prescription drug side effects. Chiropractic care is a drugless approach to healthcare that has been shown toreduce pharmaceutical costs by 51.8%.

Healthier, Happier Kids
In a study of 200 kids under chiropractic care versus 200 kids under traditional medical care, those receiving regular adjustments had fewer ear infections, asthma and allergies.

Better Posture
Chiropractors are experts at identifying the problems at the root of poor posture through the analysis of spinal curvatures and structural alignment. Chiropractic adjustments can restore proper posture, remove irritation from the soft tissues surrounding the vertebra and the nerves that exit between them, and allow your body to function optimally.

Improved Mood
Research has demonstrated those suffering with anxiety and depression frequently have dramatic results with chiropractic care. This is because chiropractic has been shown to improve hormone balance. Decreasing the bad hormones, such as cortisol, and increasing the good hormones, such as dopamine and norepinephrine, makes a big difference in how the brain and body works and how a person feels.

Fewer Hospital Visits
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics reported that patients under chiropractic care experienced 43 percent fewer hospital admissions compared to those under medical care.

An Important Part of Your Health Care Team
Doctors of chiropractic are an excellent resource to add to your health care team. They are well-trained, naturally minded professionals who undergo a rigorous education in the healing sciences, similar to that of medical doctors. In fact, in some areas, such as anatomy, physiology, rehabilitation, nutrition and public health, they receive more education than medical doctors.

Doctors of chiropractic work in tandem with other healthcare professionals. So if your condition requires attention from another branch of the healthcare profession, that recommendation or referral will be made.

If you have never been to a chiropractor before, now is a great time to get started!

    Wow, I had no idea there were so many benefits to seeing a chiropractor regularly. Things like better sleeping and less pain make obvious sense, but I had never even heard that it could prevent colds and flus. I’ll have to look into seeing a chiropractor regularly, and not just when I have a specific back issue. Thanks so much for writing!

    Yup! I agree. We all should see a chiropractic frequently since we often use our feet in daily activities. So it’s important to take care of them.

    I was recently in a small car accident. Ever since the accident, I’ve noticed that my lower back has been bothering me and it’s making it harder to sleep at night. It might be time for me to see a chiropractor. I didn’t realize that spinal misalignment can often interfere with our sleep patterns. It was also nice to read that one-third of chiropractic patients report better sleep after treatment.

    Chiropractors help so many conditions, such as sciatica pain. So many people go to ER for their low back pain, and receive muscle relaxors and anti-inflammatory meds. Thia mostly is ineffective.

    I had no idea that seeing a chiropractor could bring so many blessings! It’s pretty great that they can make kids happier by reducing their allergies, ear infections, and asthma problems. My friend’s daughter has allergies and asthma, so I’ll tell him about this. Maybe he’ll take her to see a chiropractor.

    A lumbar herniated disc can cause severe pain, weakness in strength, and numbness in the legs. Non-operative treatment is first initiated and is usually successful in relieving the symptoms.

    I’ve seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people’s lives. I wonder why people still spend their money on surgery, injections and drugs that can not cure you completely,. Natural herbs can cure all kinds of illness including herpes, diabetics, asthma, HIV, hepatitis, ALS, etc.
