1. Chiropractors Use Natural Healing Methods Usually Requiring Less Medication

Individuals who develop chronic pain or other unwanted health ailments often dislike the undesirable negative side effects from strong prescription pain relievers or other drugs commonly used for pain management. Many of these pain sufferers wonder if there are any other choices that could still provide relief from pain without the unwanted drug results.

Chiropractors are trained to treat the entire person and not just relieve the obvious symptoms by use of strong narcotics or other drugs and harsh treatment options like surgery or other invasive procedures. The holistic approach helps the chiropractor find and diagnose the actual root cause of those nasty symptoms as a much better and more effective treatment method.

Chiropractic patients usually require less medication and intensive treatments overall. This is a win-win situation that allows patients to retain their well-being and improve their overall health in general.

2. A Trained Chiropractor Seeks to Get at the Root of the Initial Problem

Another great side effect of seeing a knowledgeable chiropractor is that he/she is trained to seek the true underlying root cause of an ailment rather than simply addressing the most obvious symptoms and that’s all. This again has to do with a more holistic approach to medicine commonly seen with Eastern medicine and chiropractors differing from traditional medicine generally practiced here in this country.

If you come into the office with complaints of nagging lower back pain and daytime fatigue, the chiropractor will likely look into what type of mattress the patient has, the usual sleep patterns, and whether anything has recently changed in the patient’s life prior to the onset of symptoms.

Lower back pain can occur following a vast array of lifestyle changes and getting the body’s musculoskeletal system back into balance, using specific massage techniques and skeletal maneuvers could help the initial back pain and may even prevent this from occurring again in some cases.

3. Chiropractic Treatments May Improve Mobility, Joint Function, Muscle Health & Help Clients Feel Better


Many people suffer from mobility limitations, joint function problems, and muscle-related symptoms like chronic muscle fatigue, muscle spasms, and other types of symptoms. Chiropractic treatments may help improve all these symptoms while also lessening or preventing future flareups of these symptoms later down the road.

Most chiropractors will focus a good bit of their efforts on ensuring that the spine is in alignment. This is because this has been linked to many of the troublesome symptoms that usually bring patients in to seek relief at their local chiropractor’s office setting. After the necessary adjustments, the body may begin to respond as it was designed triggering the body’s natural healing mechanisms as the nervous system opens up again.

When the spine is out-of-alignment, this is thought to reduce the normal routines of the nervous system that can show up in various symptoms like body aches, increased headaches, overwhelming fatigue during the day, and even difficulty with flexibility and mobility if the pain is too great or there are muscle spasms or other problems.

4. Many Seek Chiropractic Care Due to Arthritis & Other Degenerative Diseases to Slow Progression

Some individuals develop chronic diseases or health ailments that may be degenerative over time with an increasing progression of the negative symptoms generally impacting the spine, musculoskeletal system, and the major organs and internal healing mechanisms.

The types of chronic health conditions that may be helped with specialized chiropractic care include the following:

  • Arthritis and/or Other Joint Related Problems – Gout, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Decreased Joint Mobility & Increased Stiffness, etc.
  • Chronic Migraines or Other Stress-Induced Headaches
  • Certain Cancers That Cause Pain & Other Ailments
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Autoimmune Disorders – Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, MS & More
  • Nervous System Disorders – May Negatively Impact Mobility, Joint Flexibility & Pain Tolerance
  • Gastrointestinal Problems – May Cause Increased Body & Spine Stress Resulting in Symptoms

It is common for chiropractic treatments to be complemented by other medical care and treatments especially for patients who have one or more chronic health issues.

5. Chiropractic Treatments May Help with Digestion, Sleep, Energy Levels & More

chiropractor-helping-digestion-issuesAs stated, chiropractors do put forth much of their efforts on the realignment of the spine and large muscle groups that support the body. However, this is not all those chiropractors can treat today. Chiropractic adjustments and other treatment measures are thought to help with neck pain, body aches, insomnia, mental focus issues, headaches, stomach upset, ear infections, scoliosis, arthritis, and asthma among other common health ailments.

In addition, chiropractic treatments may help keep the bowels and urinary systems healthy during pregnancy or for elderly patients who have begun to experience a slowdown of metabolism that could slow the bowel function and screw up the kidneys and urinary system responses.

People who experience a greater amount of stress, inner anxieties, depression, and other mental or emotional-related problems often express some relief of their symptoms through proper chiropractic adjustments and other care measures. Individuals who must stand or sit in one position for long periods of time also may develop certain musculoskeletal issues, increases in body aches and pains, and other issues also may be helped with chiropractic treatments.

Chiropractic Care May Help Relieve Pain in Addicts Struggling with Addiction

Many individuals have become addicted to pain-relieving narcotics, alcohol, and other substances that make it difficult to treat their real body pains and other discomforts. Chiropractic care can be a wonderful alternative that may help get relief for these vulnerable individuals without the adverse and strong side effects that even small amounts of addictive drugs often cause.

More Seniors Are Turning to Chiropractors to Keep Them Limber, Healthy, and Drug Side-Effect Free

Seniors too are flocking to chiropractors to keep their aging joints and skeletal systems limber, free from pain, and healthier in general all without having to worry about dangerous narcotic drug side effects that are particularly unsafe in older adults that could put them at a much higher risk of falls and other injuries.


Chiropractic care offers more than back pain relief although that itself is a huge relief for many chiropractic patients. Proper chiropractic assessment and treatments have been associated with better overall general health and increased feelings of well-being and inner happiness.
