Chiropractic care and ice cream, an unlikely but delicious combination. What do the two have to do with each other? The majority of the public has heard that chiropractors help with pain. Someone says they have low back pain for example, they will likely get a recommendation to go see a chiropractor. While I am absolutely not faulting this, as there is a plethora of research showing that chiropractors help decrease pain, what I am saying is this: going to a chiropractor only when you’re in pain is like going to an ice cream parlor, ordering a banana split with the works, and then only eating the banana. You’re missing out on all the good stuff!
More research has shown that chiropractic helps with brain function and health. Why is this important? Your brain is the control center of your body. Every muscle, gland, and organ functions via messages from your brain. If the messages getting sent between your brain and body get interfered with, things don’t go quite right. Chiropractic care, through adjustments, removed the interferences in the message path, so that your brain and body can fully communicate.
So while getting adjusted can help decrease pain levels, it can increase the quality of your life in so many other ways. This means you get to enjoy the entire banana split, cherry and all! And life is meant to be fully enjoyed, not just partially, so, proactively get adjusted my friends!
