Three Reasons for Chiropractic Adjustments

Pain and discomfort in our bodies are common ailments. Whether they are caused by injuries, aging or just stress from everyday activities, we all get aches and pains from time to time.

This is where chiropractic treatment can help.

Through routine adjustments, your chiropractor can relieve those pains. These non-invasive techniques manipulate the spine and musculoskeletal system to bring immediate relief and address the cause of the problem(s) with the goal of a long-term solution.

“A great reason to get adjusted is natural pain relief,” says Dr. Austin Mennen at Sycamore Integrated Health.

Additionally, Dr. Mennen says there are other benefits for your body as well.

“Adjustments and chiropractic care offer drug-free management of pain and similar conditions with whole body advantages over the standard model of care.”

Here are three important reasons to seek chiropractic treatment.

  • Increase your overall strength and balance

On top of relieving pain, chiropractic care helps you increase strength, improve your range of motion, and achieve better body balance. Your body functions better when it is stronger and moves properly, and this is a key benefit that regular adjustments provide.

“Not only can chiropractic care decrease pain, but it will simultaneously increase function as well,” Dr. Mennen said.

  • Reduce stress and help you sleep

Chiropractic treatment helps pinpoint the exact areas of musculoskeletal stress and minimize their effects. This will improve your ability to relax and can help you sleep better too. Getting proper rest is crucial to a healthy life, and by realigning your spine and manipulating your nervous system through routine adjustments, you’ll be able to settle into a state of rest more easily.

  • Adjustments help with headaches

Headaches are common, but if the frequency increases to more than once per week, that isn’t normal. This is another important reason to get adjusted. Many headaches and migraines are caused by a misfunction of the cervical spine. Chiropractic adjustments can safely and effectively treat these cervicogenic headaches by properly aligning the spine and relieving pressure points. This will reduce or eliminate the headache pain in the process.

These are just a few ways in which adjustments can help. For more information or questions on the benefits of chiropractic care, visit or call 815-895-3354.
