| Have you ever seen those commercials for medication that always list off all of the possible side effects? Like many medical treatments, chiropractic can and will affect your body in different ways. If you’ve ever wondered what happens to your body after chiropractic treatment, read below! Sleep Patterns May Change If you’ve had an aching back or perhaps unrestful sleep, chiropractic adjustments may help you. While chiropractors generally aren’t thought of as being experts on sleep-related issues, one-third of people who have a chiropractic adjustment report that they experience immediate sleep improvement. Headaches May Improve Headaches may be the result of an imbalance in the spine. Current evidence suggests that chiropractic care, can be effective in identifying the cause of headaches and treating cervicogenic, neck pain and tension headaches. Studies have also shown that chiropractic care can help decrease the intensity and frequency of migraines. Your Posture Might Change Whether it’s correcting the alignment of bones and joints or releasing muscle tension that causes your back to be stiff, chiropractors can help your posture improve. A Tulsa Chiropractor can also help you identify the common links to poor posture: stress, obesity, pregnancy, weak muscles, tight muscles, high-heeled shoes, and more. Your Mood Might Improve Research has shown that poor postures may increase feelings of depression, affect your digestive tract and influence confidence and stress levels. As your posture and your balance is realigned, a chiropractor can help your emotional and mental state to improve and become more positive. You Might Be Sick Less Spinal adjustments have been shown to help your body fight disease and boost immune function. When spinal misalignments that cause neural dysfunction are corrected, the flow from the brain to your organs and disease-fighting cells is increased. Neural dysfunction caused by a pulled muscle or a spine that is out of alignment stresses a body out, which may lead to a weakened immune system and lowered response to a foreign body, such as the cold virus. When the spine is in balance, your body will perform better to heal itself! Get Scheduled Today!
