Most people spend their sitting down behind a desk, driving, glued to cell phones and computers. Even sedentary, your spine and neck will become out of line because of the constant bending.

Hunched over or sticking your neck out causes stress on your spine. This results in back, neck, shoulder and head pain. Taking a proactive approach through regular spinal adjustments will alleviate this issue.

There is medical research and studies proving the benefits of regular chiropractic care:

1. Sciatica
The European Spine Journal published the findings from a clinical trial last year uncovering how chiropractic adjustments resulted in a 72 percent success rate in treating sciatica and related symptoms compared to the 20 percent success from physical therapy and 50 percent from corticosteroid injections.

2. Low Back Pain and Neck Pain
In a study published in the British Medical Journal 2003, 183 patients with neck pain were randomly divided to manual therapy (spinal mobilization), physiotherapy (mainly exercise) or general practitioner care (counseling, education, and drugs) in a 52-week study.

The clinical outcome measures showed that chiropractic adjustments resulted in faster recovery than physiotherapy and general practitioner care. Total costs of the chiropractic-treated patients were about one-third of the costs of physiotherapy or general practitioner care.

In the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, patients with chronic low-back pain treated by chiropractors showed greater improvement and satisfaction in one month than patients treated by family physicians.

3. Headaches (Tension and Migraine)
Second only to back pain, headaches are one of the most common conditions regularly managed by chiropractors. There are over 230 peer-reviewed articles referenced chiropractic’s ability to help cure, prevent, and ease the burden of headaches and migraines in people all across the globe.

4. Colic and Ear Infections
A 2012 study published in Journal of Manipulative Physiological Therapeutics found that chiropractic adjustments greatly reduced colic symptoms.

Although few randomized control trials have been conducted describing the clinical effects of chiropractic care on children, literally scores of case studies have been documented that describe how children suffering from otitis media (ear infections), acid reflux and colic have experienced complete to near complete resolution after just a few visits.

5. Neurological Conditions
Research is being conducted via upright MRI showing how upper cervical adjustments affect various brain-based conditions.

Not only are MRI scans revealing that cerebral spinal fluid and blood flow are markedly increased after a chiropractic adjustment, researchers observe that cerebellar invagination (when the cerebellum drops below the skull line) is being reversed and brain plaquing (common in multiple sclerosis patients) is disappearing!

6. Blood Pressure
In 2007, George Bakris, the world expert on hypertension, published a study with a team of researchers in the Human Journal of Hypertension proving that one upper cervical chiropractic adjustment had the same effect as two blood pressure-lowering drugs. The effects of just one adjustment lasted over six months.

7. Surgery Prevention
Chiropractic has long been heralded by natural health care providers as a natural method to prevent back surgery. The Journal of the American Medical Association just recently published its low back pain guidelines and suggested that people suffering from back pain first try chiropractic before resorting to surgery.

8. Frozen Shoulder
Last year a clinical trial was published describing how patients suffering from the debilitating condition frozen shoulder responded to chiropractic care. Of the 50 patients: 16 resolved completely; 25 showed 75 percent to 90 percent improvement; eight showed 50 percent to 75 percent improvement; and one showed 0 percent to 50 percent improvement.

9. Scoliosis
Chiropractic adjustments for scoliosis coupled with muscular rehabilitation techniques may help prevent the progression of scoliosis. Organizations like the nonprofit Clear Institute founded by Dr. Dennis Woggon have set out to empower healthcare professionals with an effective chiropractic system to treat people with scoliosis.

10. Athletic Performance
Athletes both today and in the past, like Michael Phelps, Jerry Rice and Joe Montana, are under regular chiropractic care. In fact, over 50 percent of NFL teams have a chiropractor on staff.

Because it is so effective at pain-based and pathological conditions, one of the most overlooked aspects of chiropractic care is that it enhances personal and athletic performance. Studies have shown that it:

  • Reduces inflammatory cytokines
  • Boosts your immune system
  • Enhances pulmonary function
  • Decreases mental and oxidative stress
  • Relieves muscle tension
  • Naturally increases energy level

Studies have even proved, objectively, and subjectively that chiropractic patients experience “overall increased bodily function,” which includes bowel regularity and mental clarity.

Because it helps place your body in the position where it can heal itself, chiropractic adjustments can free your immune system up to focus on keeping you healthy, which enhances your ability to think, move, and perform.
