Researched Chiropractic Benefits 3

As we have seen in the two precious posts Researched Chiropractic Benefits and Researched Chiropractic Benefits 2 there have been many research findings supporting the effectiveness of chiropractic treatments with regard to various medical conditions. Here are two more studies and the resultant findings.

Scoliosis

Combining chiropractic adjustments with muscular rehabilitation techniques may actually act to curb the advancement of scoliosis. 

Many nonprofit organizations one of which is the Clear Institute founded by Dr. Dennis Woggon are endeavoring to provide health care professionals with a powerful chiropractic system to treat scoliosis patients. And as a matter of fact, with the usage of a perfected treatment model it was found that the spinal condition of scoliosis can be effectively treated without the use of restrictive braces or any dangerous surgeries. Additionally, participants in many case studies have realized a ten to thirty percent decrease in scoliosis curvature. Good news to be sure!

Athletic Performance

Chiropractic care is remarkably effective with regard to pain-based and pathological conditions, Because of this, there is an often overlooked benefit of chiropractic treatment in which both personal and athletic performance is enhanced.

So it makes total sense that athletes such as Michael Phelps, Jerry Rice and Joe Montana, are under regular chiropractic care. As a matter of fact, over 50 percent of NFL teams have a chiropractor on staff.

Studies have found that chiropractic treatment can:

  • Boost your immune system
  • Decrease mental and oxidative stress
  • Enhance pulmonary function
  • Naturally increase your energy level
  • Reduce inflammatory cytokines
  • Relieve muscle tension

Findings have also been gathered, both objectively and subjectively, in which chiropractic patients experienced an “overall increased bodily function,” including bowel regularity and mental clarity.

The bottom line is that because chiropractic adjustments place your body in the proper environment to begin healing itself, your immune system can now focus on keeping you healthy; which is exactly what it was meant to do. This allows you to think, move, and perform at optimal levels.
