Chiropractor Glen Burnie, MD
Many people visit a chiropractor on a regular basis for adjustments, and some visit their chiropractor only occasionally for treatment of various conditions. Though chiropractic treatment is most often associated with spinal manipulation, it is also an effective method for treating conditions that result in leg pain, headaches, and more. One of the reasons for the popularity of chiropractic care is that it is non-invasive, and does not involve surgery or prescription medication.
In addition to treating physical conditions, a chiropractor can improve a person’s quality of life by enhancing the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
- Relief of stress. When the spine is properly aligned, the body’s overall health is positively affected. For example, when the spine is healthy it allows the nervous system to send accurate and timely signals to the brain. When the spine is misaligned, the nervous system does not function correctly and may result in physical as well as mental stress. When a chiropractor, like a chiropractor in Glen Burnie, MD from Mid-Atlantic Spinal Rehab & Chiropractic, “fixes” the spine, it leads to balance which can greatly reduce tension and stress. A chiropractor can also provide the patient with insight about how to keep one’s spine as aligned as possible between chiropractic adjustments.
- Improved posture. Just as a properly aligned spine can relieve stress, maintaining a proper posture is more comfortable. When a person works at a desk for long periods of time or otherwise stays in the same position with reduced mobility, it can lead to improper and unhealthy posture. An unhealthy posture can lead to neck pain as well as back pain.
- Improved immune system. The nervous system is a vital aspect of maintaining optimal health. In order to function correctly on a conscious and unconscious level, the body must receive timely and accurate signals from the nervous system. It also enables the body to recover from illness faster than if the nervous system is not functioning as it should. A chiropractor can improve the functionality of the nervous system by aligning the spine.
- Improved mood. It’s natural to feel out of sorts when the body is experiencing pain. When a chiropractor treats a patient and enables their nervous system to work properly by aligning their spine, it can relieve depression and conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
- Improved sleep. The body cannot function correctly if it does not receive sufficient sleep. If a person is experiencing pain, it can be difficult or impossible to enjoy enough hours of deep sleep. When one is rested sufficiently, it fosters greater clarity of mind, increased energy levels, and reduces vulnerability to illness.
