Health = Function
As a result of a body functioning at 100%, the following are reported benefits of chiropractic care:
IMMUNE SYSTEM: Immune system function is enhanced; improved nerve supply to organs of immunity including spleen, tonsils, appendix, and lymphoid tissue.
NERVOUS SYSTEM: Nerve irritation is relieved; pathological reflexes are blocked, eliminated or altered; meningeal stress is reduced; nerves receive better blood flow; better sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve balance; homeostasis and balance are enhanced.
BRAIN STRESS AND PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECTS: Increased blood supply to the brain; improved concentration; reduced anxiety; reduced irritability, depression tiredness and clumsiness; relief from anorexia nervosa; improved memory; greater muscular relaxation; release of tissue memory; improved sleep, more energy.
NECK AND HEAD: Relief from headaches including migraines; relief from head pains, acute and chronic neck pain, acute and chronic whiplash and post-concussion syndrome; healthier discs; reduced disc pressure; disc healing from protrusion and herniation; better spinal balance; better posture; less “wear and tear” on joints and discs; TMJ syndrome relief.
BREATHING AND LUNGS: Stress relieved from lungs; improvement of respiratory function, “opening” of lungs; improved breathing ability; improvement of bronchitis, allergies, asthma, sinusitis, common cold, pneumonia.
CARDIOVASCULAR: Greater nerve supply to heart and coronary arteries; improved circulation; less nerve stress; normalization of blood pressure.
DIGESTION AND ELIMINATION: Improved digestion and elimination; improved function of throat, stomach and duodenum, small and large intestines, colon and anus; relief from ulcers, greater nerve supply to entire digestive tract, liver and gallbladder. Help with kidney, bladder, and colon. Improved nerve supply to organs of elimination.
EYES AND EARS: Improved hearing, relief from vertigo, recovery from deafness. Improved vision, eye function; increased visual fields, recovery from blindness, help for cross-eye and nystagmus (wandering eye); improved nerve and blood supply to eyes and eye muscles.
LOWER BACK AND DISC: Relief from acute and chronic lower back pain as well as acute and chronic whiplash; healthier discs; reduced disc pressure including disc healing from protrusion and herniation. Prevention of future back surgery. Increased low back spinal and hip stability; better spinal balance and posture; loss “wear and tear” on joints and discs.
UPPER EXTREMITIES: Relief from carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder, arm and hand problems.
LOWER EXTREMITIES: Hips, knees, and feet more balanced; less pressure on nerves and joints, better balance, improved posture; relief from sciatica and leg pain.
HORMONAL EFFECTS: Improved thyroid function; better weight regulation. Diabetes symptoms alleviated; decreased need for insulin.
ESPECIALLY FOR INFANTS: Balanced symmetry of facial and cranial bones; correction of foot and hip inversion, club foot, hip dysplasia; improved ability to breastfeed. Proper neurodevelopment and achievement of developmental milestones. Improvement of colic, pyloric stenosis, constipation, fever. Better sleep; correction of torticollis; improved neurological development; relief from seizures; reversal of muscular dysfunction.
ESPECIALLY FOR CHILDREN: Improved immune system for greater resistance to disease; lessening and decreased severity of colds; absence or decreased intensity of common childhood diseases. Help for bed-wetting; relief from tonsillitis; fewer ear infections (and faster recovery); improved hearing; better lung and bronchial health; asthma relief. Improved IQ scored; alleviation of attention deficit and learning disorders; decreased hyperactivity; improvement of speech disorders, autism, neuromuscular conditions, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, juvenile myasthenia gravis, muscular dystrophy, lupus erythematosis. Bones grow in better relationship to gravity.
OVERALL EFFECTS ON BODY STRUCTURE: Less pressure on body in general: joints are aligned; weight is carried more evenly; better posture; more balance; more energy; muscles are strengthened and balanced; trigger points and hot spots are removed; increased flexibility and normal ranges of motion; chemical balance is enhanced; excess free-radical production is reduced.
JOINTS: Protection from and possible reversal of arthritis; release of pressure on weight-bearing joints.
SPORTS AND PERFORMANCE: Improved reaction time; increased speed, better performance, increased endurance, improved sense of body position.
SEXUAL ORGAN EFFECTS (FEMALE): Improved sexual function; more energy; improved function of reproductive organs including ovaries, vagina and uterus. Correction of infertility (inability to conceive); improvement of amelioration of gynecological conditions such as menstrual pain, bloating and PMS; less severe morning sickness; less discomfort during pregnancy; easier childbirth and reduced labor; reduction in menopausal symptoms (depression, hot flashes, back or joint pain, irritability, headaches and/or fatigue).
SEXUAL ORGAN EFFECTS (MALE): Improved sexual function; more energy; improved function of reproductive organs including prostate; relief of testicular pain; correction of infertility (inability to conceive).
