How Chiropractic Will Help You Reach Your Health Goals

New Year's resolutions are often forgotten once February arrives. While you may have meant every word you said when you made your resolutions, achieving your health goals could be harder than you expected. If you're struggling to improve your health, chiropractic treatment could offer the boost you need to check off the items on your list. Take a look a few ways that chiropractic could help you this year.

Exercising Is Easier with Fewer Aches and Pains

Lounging on the couch seems like a much better option than exercising if your joints and muscles ache. Although a fall or injury can trigger pain, poor posture may also be responsible for your symptoms. Poor posture stresses your muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints and may even pull the bony vertebrae in your neck and back out of alignment.

Posture-related pain can occur if:

  • You slouch over your computer or steering wheel
  • Your hunch your spine and hold your neck forward when you stand and walk
  • You spend hours looking down at digital devices
  • Your job requires you to contort your body into comfortable positions

Chiropractic treatment is ideal for easing pain and stiffness, no matter what the cause. Your treatment plan might include:

  • Spinal manipulation therapy to realign your vertebrae
  • Massage therapy to loosen tight tissues and ease pain
  • Ultrasound therapy to heat deep tissues, relieve muscle tension, and break apart scar tissue that can contribute to stiffness
  • Traction to gently stretch your spine and reduce pressure on nerves, discs and tissues
  • Soft tissue mobilization to reduce tension on muscles and tissues and improve function and range of motion

Chiropractic Treatment Can Reduce Your Reliance on Pain Medication

Are you tired of relying on pills to relieve your pain or concerned about medication side effects? Whether you're worried about addiction or struggling with dizziness, nausea, drowsiness and other common side effects, chiropractic will help you reduce and manage your pain naturally.

Just because you can buy pain medication at the drugstore doesn't mean it's harmless. Taking too much ibuprofen could cause gastrointestinal problems or even damage your kidneys, while liver failure could occur if you take more than the recommended amount of acetaminophen.

Your chiropractor offers treatments that:

  • Target the source of your pain and prevent it from returning
  • Reduce inflammation, swelling and stiffness
  • Improve flexibility and range of motion
  • Enhance blood flow necessary for optimum function and healing

When you visit your chiropractor regularly, you may find you get fewer headaches or notice that your joint pain doesn't bother you as much as it once did. Thanks to the treatments, you may be able to take a lower dose of the medication or even stop taking it completely.

Chiropractic Helps You Manage Chronic Conditions

Do you need a little help controlling a chronic condition? Chiropractic may have a beneficial impact on many chronic diseases and conditions, including asthma, arthritis, migraines, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, fibromyalgia and insomnia.

If you have asthma, realigning your spine reduces tension on chest muscles and allows your lungs to expand fully when you take a full breath. Treatments can reduce the number of tension headaches or migraines you get, or reduce pain caused by fibromyalgia or arthritis.

Visiting the chiropractor could even help you lower your blood pressure. UChicago Medicine Researchers discovered that spinal manipulation decreased blood pressure in patients who had misaligned vertebrae in their necks.

Are you tired of broken New Year's resolutions? Why not improve your health with chiropractic?

  • "Before using BAX3000 I had headaches, itchy eyes and cough. I couldn't go outside in spring and fall. I wasn't able to open the windows and enjoy fresh air.

    After the BAX3000, I feel great. My symptoms are gone. The windows are open and I can enjoy spring. It's wonderful! Also, I haven't taken an allergy pill since my 3rd session. I would highly recommend Dr. Warner and the BAX3000 to others who suffer from allergies."

  • "I decided to try the laser allergy treatments mainly because of my struggle with seasonal allergies. Being outside caused a lot of congestion, sneezing, and misery. Now, after completing my treatments, I'm excited to say that I can work outside all day with no problems! BAX-3000 also fixed my reaction to bee stings. After getting stung, I used to develop severe swelling. As a bee keeper, this swelling made it impossible, not to mention painful. After my laser treatments, I intentionally let myself get stung to see what my reaction would be. I was amazed! My severe reaction to bee stings is gone! Thank you BAX-3000!"

  • "Before the treatment, I couldn't stand to have any doors or windows open during grass mowing. It could even be a neighbor mowing. I would almost instantly have congestion, red watery itchy eyes. I also had these problems with laundry soap and other things with fragrance. I also had trouble when anyone burned leaves or had campfires. After treatment, my symptoms are gone."
    Lisa Swafford
  • "After having my allergy treatments, eating food is no longer a problem. I had food allergies to many things, primarily wheat and corn, so it was difficult eating without a reaction beforehand. I have had not a single reaction now from eating. Sometimes, my throat would swell up and I couldn't breathe, so the difference is amazing. I had other allergies as well that contributed to me being sick very frequently. After the treatments, I don't get sick near as much as I used to."
