People often visit a Chiropractor in Victoria BC seeking relief for a specific problem, but few realize the benefits of scheduling regular visits. Taking steps to keep your spine and nervous system healthy with regular visits offers many benefits you may not have considered.
Research has shown that visiting a Chiropractor can make you happier by improving your hormone balance. During treatment the bad hormones (think Cortisol) are decreased and the brain is flooded with good hormones such as dopamine and norepinephrine. With the brain full of the good hormones, this has a positive impact on the body as they work together. For those suffering from anxiety and depression regular Chiropractic treatments often have dramatic results by rebalancing your hormones.
Fewer Colds And Flu
A study by Dr Ronald Pero, chief of cancer prevention at New York Preventative Medicine has shown long term Chiropractic care boosts the immune system. The group of cancer patients receiving long term care had immune systems 200% stronger than those who received no treatments. Stronger immune systems are essential to preventing life threatening illnesses and will mean less colds and flu.
With a population experiencing poor quality sleep, ongoing Chiropractic care can be beneficial in improving your night’s rest. Waking up fresh and re-charged leads to more energy.
Avoid Drugs And Hospitals
Prescription drug side effects can send people to their physician or paying a visit to the Emergency Ward. Chiropractic care is a drugless approach to health that can drastically reduce the need for prescription drugs. This also reduces the amount of pain you feel. When the spine is misaligned due to an accident or injuries, it is frequently a consequence. A Chiropractic adjustment has been shown effective in helping the resulting pain.
