The Chiropractic Center of Erie has been serving families for decades in Northern Colorado. We even opened the Chiropractic Center of Longmont this year to help more patients get back to living healthier, pain-free lives. Our trusted doctors and our entire staff have seen patients transformed through chiropractic care. It’s not just our livelihoods, it’s our passion that keeps us serving patients. Over the years, we’ve treated many clients for many different reasons. No two patients are the same, but we have seen very consistent reasons for seeking chiropractic help. With that being said, here are our top 10 reasons to visit a chiropractor.
Back and Neck Pain Relief
Patients visit us most often with complaints of back and neck pain. Poor alignment often causes pain in these areas and can be treated by a good chiropractor effectively in many cases. Many reasons cause the body to lose its natural alignment including sleeping in a bad position, poor posture, auto accidents, or hard falls. Once the body is out of alignment, if left untreated the muscles tighten around the area to compensate for the weakness. Over time, the body forgets what proper alignment feels like and patients live with chronic pain they don’t understand.
Nearly every person experiences headaches at least once a week. Many more experience them regularly throughout their day or week. This creates frustration for patients who feel their only options for relief are through over-the-counter pain medication. In fact, about 95% of headaches are due to tension, migraine, and cluster headaches. This means that nearly all headaches can be alleviated through proper chiropractic care. Headaches often present themselves as a symptom of a problem within your body and medication only masks the symptom without treating the problem. Chiropractic care gets to the root of the problem and often helps patients live headache-free.
Sleep provides a natural reset for the human body. A good night’s sleep has been proven to boost your immune system, strengthen your heart, and as friends and family can attest, improve your mood. Improper alignment within the body makes it hard to get comfortable and harder to sleep in one position for long periods of time. Chiropractors can help you maximize your sleeping time by opening up the natural systems within the body and relieving pain.
Natural, Holistic Pain Relief | No Medicine
Many people in Western civilization don’t recognize the benefits of holistic healing methods. They are taught to treat symptoms and not the underlying cause of an issue. As a chiropractor, we specialize in the underlying causes especially since we primarily treat the underlying neuromuscular and skeletal systems. Taking pills for long periods of time, not only masks underlying issues, they create their own problems. Many medications, when taken for long periods of time, lead to a multitude of issues. Chiropractors often provide longer-lasting pain relief without the harmful side-effects of over-the-counter medicines.
Blood Pressure Normalization | No More Hypertension
According to the CDC, nearly half of all Americans suffer from high blood pressure. In 2018, nearly half a million deaths listed high blood pressure as the primary or contributing cause of death. Chiropractic adjustments relieve tension, lower stress, and open the channels throughout the human body. This helps lower blood pressure significantly over the long-term and is a great option to be utilized as a part of an overall treatment plan.
Women’s bodies undergo dynamic changes throughout their pregnancy. With widening hips, lower back adjusting to compensate for more weight, and other major changes taking place, many women express feelings of great discomfort throughout their terms. Chiropractic adjustments not only help relieve some of this discomfort, a good chiropractor can help the expecting mom’s body manage these changes. With a skilled chiropractor, women have reported less weight gain, balanced hormones, and a better night’s sleep.
The spine represents the largest part of your neurological system. When out of alignment, key signals sent from your digestive system may not get through. This causes many digestive issues in some patients. Proper alignment helps these signals get through to the correct places in the body and helps prevent weight gain, constipation, and other digestive disorders.
The body experiences many stress-related symptoms. One such symptom is tension build up in major muscle groups. As these muscles tighten they can force the body out of alignment causing more pain and discomfort. The added pain and discomfort cause added stress to the body. As you can see, this creates a vicious circle that many patients are unaware of until they experience stress release through chiropractic care. Our unique chiropractic treatment process breaks this circle and opens up the neuromuscular systems in your body. This not only relieves the pain but helps the body cope with stress better.
Help Athletes Reach Peak Performance
Chiropractors train to become experts in the human body. In particular, we focus on improving the body’s own efficiencies. For athletes, this means fewer injuries, faster healing times, and a better response to sport-specific training. We have helped athletes from all walks of life including football players, slalom skiers, and ultra-marathoners at the top levels of competition.
Better Overall Health
The Chiropractic Center of Erie and the Chiropractic Center of Longmont specialize in helping patients live better, healthier lives. We help the nervous system communicate effectively with the brain, help improve blood flow, and relieve pain for our patients. Many patients think of chiropractors when they have back pain, but they don’t always realize we can help with many other ailments. The benefits of chiropractic care spread throughout the entire body and do so without surgery and medication.
Chiropractors help patients experience pain relief, headache relief, better sleep, and more. Best of all, patients enjoy all of these benefits without the added concerns of surgery or long-term side-effects of pills and other medications.
