What are the benefits of holistic chiropractic care?

The cause of physical pain isn’t always obvious. While bad posture can lead to backache and a car accident can cause pain in your neck, tenderness and aches can’t always be traced back to something so clear and defined.

Sometimes the discomfort you experience has a hidden cause that you may not have considered. Occasionally, there’s no discernable reason for your ongoing pain. A holistic chiropractor may be able to help diagnose you and help you get rid of your unwanted aches.

What is a holistic chiropractor?

Standard chiropractors treat subluxation, which is a term used to describe a spine that is out of alignment. When one of your vertebrae is not in its usual position, you can experience all sorts of symptoms, from neck pain and back pain to dizziness and migraines.

Regular chiropractors address the misalignment and return the vertebra to its original position to relieve your symptoms. You should feel better immediately after a standard chiropractic appointment. You can expect continued relief for several days or weeks, depending on your injury and its severity.

Chiropractors who take a holistic approach can provide you with pain relief by finding out why the subluxation occurs in the first place. By getting to the root of the problem and treating the initial cause of your spinal misalignment, you’re more likely to experience long-term pain relief. 

How does it work?

l chiropractic care usually involves visits to your chiropractor’s office for regular therapeutic massages and adjustments. Holistic chiropractic care takes a more full-body approach and looks at all the possibilities which could be causing your regular misalignments. Some of the suggestions your holistic chiropractor may offer include:

Corrective exercises

By pairing corrective at-home exercises with in-clinic chiropractic care, you can experience better, longer-lasting results. Your holistic chiropractor may recommend a series of exercises and workouts you can do at home to help keep your body strong and healthy in between sessions.

Lifestyle advice

While auto, workplace, or sports-related accidents are sometimes the cause of pain, ongoing discomfort is often the result of poor lifestyle choices. Bad habits are so easy to form that you may not even realize you’re harming yourself. Your holistic chiropractor can offer expert lifestyle advice designed just for you. 

They’ll learn all about your medical history, lifestyle, and your current state of health. After that, they will create a personalized plan to help you feel your best. This could include everything from exercises to introduce into your routine to better ways of performing everyday activities.

Nutritional counseling

You’ll get the most out of your chiropractic sessions when you’re a healthy weight. To help you get there, the best holistic chiropractors will work with you to create a delicious diet plan for peak health. 

They’ll suggest introducing all kinds of healthy foods into your diet. It will give you plenty of energy and provide your body with everything it needs to heal itself. They’ll help you understand the importance of healthy foods, vitamins, and supplements so you can achieve your health goals.

What are the benefits?

Here’s a good analogy to help you understand the benefits of holistic chiropractic care. Imagine that you frequently drop your smartphone and each time you do, the screen cracks. Whenever the screen is broken, you take it to a professional for it to be fixed. They do a great job and your screen looks good as new.

But then you drop it again and the circle repeats itself. Instead of continuing to fix the screen every time you break it, you need to find a way to protect it in the first place. By putting it inside a protective cover or keeping it somewhere safe, you won’t drop it and the screen won’t break.

Holistic chiropractic care works in a similar way. If your spine continues to become misaligned, you can visit a chiropractor for an adjustment and feel great — until it becomes misaligned again. Instead of treating the symptom, It’s much better to get to the root of the problem and treat the cause of your misaligned spine.

By solving the problem of what’s causing your spine to frequently become misaligned, you can work on it so it stops happening. Instead of regularly treating your pain and discomfort, holistic chiropractic care helps you remove the pain and discomfort altogether so there’s nothing to treat.
