Embrace chiropractic! To those of us who discovered early the amazing life-enhancing benefits of chiropractic care, we find it a real shame that so many people remain in the dark. Whether you have an existing problem or you wish to improve your overall health and well-being, visiting a chiropractor can be a positive and beneficial step to better health.
Here I list ten of my favorite health benefits that myself, my friends and family, and our many clients enjoy.
1) Embrace chiropractic for a life without pain
Pain is always the body telling us that something is wrong. Chiropractic identifies the cause of the problem, whether it be postural or the result of trauma, and corrects, allowing the body to heal naturally. Research and over 100 years of empirical evidence confirm that chiropractic adjustments are highly effective. Chiropractic not only decreases immediate pain and symptoms but also reduces the likelihood of future problems.
2) Decreased dependence on drugs
Unfortunately, 80% of us eventually end up on some drug or another for the purpose of ‘managing a condition.’ Each year millions visit their doctor’s office or the emergency room because of adverse prescription drug side effects. Chiropractic is a drugless approach to healthcare that has been shown to reduce pharmaceutical costs by over 50%. We teach people how to stay vibrantly healthy throughout their life without becoming a slave to symptom management. It is our goal to help as many as I can reach to live their entire life without the need for dangerous drugs. Health Care before Sick Care!
3) Better Posture
Chiropractors are experts at identifying the root cause of problems, especially poor posture, which is of epidemic proportions nowadays. Poor posture destroys the lives of people all over Singapore and around the world. If poor posture can be spotted early, then, you can save yourself from literally decades of unnecessary suffering. We have highly developed methods of postural and spinal analysis that can reliably identify problems with spinal curvature and alignment. Once a problem is identified, our programs bring about a speedy correction.
4) Fewer Hospital Visits
Hospitals are full of very unhealthy people, and if you want to stay healthy, you should try to avoid staying in these places as much as you can. We hear of older adults being admitted for something relatively minor but then contracting pneumonia and passing away. The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics reported that patients under chiropractic care experienced 43% fewer hospital admissions compared to those under medical care.
5) Healthier, Happier Kids
Children under chiropractic care compared with children under medical care statistically suffer far, far fewer ear infections, asthma, and allergies. Furthermore, they will maintain better posture and structural balance, and as they enter adulthood they will have many health advantages
6) Improved Mood by embracing chiropractic
Research has demonstrated those suffering from anxiety and depression frequently have dramatic results with chiropractic care. These dramatic results occur because chiropractic has been shown to improve hormone balance. Decreasing the bad stress 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.
7) Fewer Colds and Flu’s
Research, together with huge empirical evidence, indicates that Chiropractic patients have incredibly strong immune systems. Dr. Ronald Pero, chief of cancer prevention research at New York’s Preventative 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.
8) Embrace Chiropractic for Reduced Healthcare Costs
Chiropractic care has been clearly shown to be more cost-effective than the medical approach of drugs and surgery. For example, the 1993 Manga Report published by the Canadian government concluded:
“There would be highly significant cost saving if more management of low-back pain 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.”
9) Embrace chiropractic for improved Sleep
There are numerous reasons you may suffer from poor sleep, but most will usually be associated with stress, or aches and pains. Sleep deprivation is a destructive and extremely unhealthy affliction that is increasingly widespread in this modern stressed out world. Sufferers would often do anything for a peaceful nights sleep and all to often turn to unhealthy pills for the answer. Chiropractic can help enormously here, as very often stress is held in the spine and the nervous system within. Gentle chiropractic adjustments reduce pain, improve function, and reduce the anxiety associated with 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.
10) Slows Down the Aging Process
Slowing down the aging process is my favorite advantage of receiving regular chiropractic adjustments. By staying in alignment, you will suffer less arthritis and maintain a healthier immune system. You will ask smarter questions regarding health and make healthier decisions. You will maintain better posture, walk taller, and be able to exercise longer into life. While your friends and associates are suffering the seemingly inevitable degenerative changes associated with aging, you will be running with the dog on the beach and living life large. You will get to enjoy your grandchildren, and you won’t become a burden to your family. To me, this is what it is all about.
We strongly believe that a Doctor of Chiropractic should form an essential part of your halt 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, postural correction, exercise, and nutrition, they receive more education than medical doctors. If you wish to keep your family healthy and not succumb to all the degenerative conditions that wreck the lives of the majority then a chiropractor should certainly be part of your health care.
