Some Often Unexpected Benefits of Chiropractic Care

While many of our Minneapolis chiropractic patients come to Lyn Lake Chiropractic for better health in regard to their backs, necks, and extremities, many report that their health has improved in other areas as well thanks to their regular spinal manipulations. Oftentimes, it is in ways that they hadn’t even expected.

Fewer Digestive Issues

If you frequently have a troubled tummy, irritable bowel, or some other type of digestive issue, then chiropractic may help as research has found that chiropractic adjustments to the middle and lower back can help relieve pressure that may be placed on nerves in this region. These are the same nerves responsible for making sure your digestive organs function as they should, resulting in fewer digestive problems for you.

Better Heart Health

Many studies, such as one published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, have discovered that, starting from the very first visit, some chiropractic patients experience a lower heart rate as a result of an adjustment. That makes this form of treatment beneficial to people who struggle with heart-related issues, potentially bringing their stats to normal, healthier ranges.

Improved Reproductive Health

Are you trying to conceive a child, but are having a tough time getting pregnant? The problem may lie with the function of your nervous system, which is what chiropractic is all about improving and enhancing. That’s why reputable agencies and organizations such as the American Pregnancy Association promote chiropractic care with helping diminish fertility issues. And once you do get pregnant, chiropractic is also great for expectant mothers!

More Balance

This issue is a concern for many, especially as we grow older. While strengthening leg muscles, performing balance-based activities like tai chi and dance, and getting adequate sleep are often helpful to diminishing this problem, studies have also found that chiropractic can help as well. One even noted that, in addition to experiencing fewer issues with balance, some chiropractic patients also reported having less dizziness and reduced neck pain. Bonus!
