Back pain is the leading reason people visit the chiropractor, according to the American Chiropractic Association. Back pain is very common and is reported amongst one of the top reasons reported for missed work.
However, what most people don’t realize is that most back pain is mechanical, which means it’s not caused by a serious condition. Chiropractic care, which doesn’t utilize prescription medications, can often assess the problem and correct it through spinal manipulation.
Many people spend eight hours or more a day sitting down, which makes maintaining good posture a constant struggle. Good posture is very important because as it helps us move in ways that doesn’t strain muscles and ligaments. Bad posture repeated over time can lead to health issues. Chiropractic treatments, over time, can help realign the neck and spine to improve posture and relieve pain.
As previously mentioned, spinal health is imperative to overall health. When the nervous system is not working properly, different parts of the body are not receiving vital signals to function properly. We need a strong immune system to recover from illness quickly and efficiently. Chiropractic manipulation can help maintain and build up a strong immune system.
Lack of sleep leads to a multitude of issues. Common reasons people do not sleep well are due to pain, stress, and overall body aches. Proper spinal alignment increases the opportunity for a deeper slumber. Chiropractic care improves sleep over time with increased pain relief and
overall health and wellness.

When a person is in pain, their mood usually reflects their discomfort. Balancing the body’s nervous system leads to a balanced cortisol levels in the body. The nervous system is responsible for pain signals and when the spine is not properly aligned, the entire body can feel the effect.
