Aid in Rehab
Injuries are what often send patients to a chiropractor, whether the physical damage is years old or fairly recent. Although chiropractic treatment is beneficial for those without injuries, patients suffering from painful physical injuries have a greater need for immediate chiropractic care. Car accidents are one of the leading causes of injuries, sending its victims to rehab and physical therapy hundreds of times per year to regain their mobility and strength. Dr. Myers has an excellent exercise therapy room for all his patients to use for the specific purpose of therapeutic healing.
Chiropractic care is essential in aiding in rehab. Without spinal adjustments, patients would be lacking the necessary tools to set them back on the path to recovery. Spinal adjustments reset the vertebrae and can solve issues such as lower back pain, middle back pain, upper back pain, neck pain, headaches, and many more symptoms of injuries. There are no risks of chiropractic care, only benefits that can aid in healing patients in and out of the rehabilitation facility.
Chiropractic treatment and chiropractic rehabilitation lower the risk of inciting further injury enacted by patients when moving. Chiropractic rehabilitation is also considered pain management, and pain induced by harmful injuries can be eased through spinal manipulation and treating the musculoskeletal system. The work done in the rehab facility is meant to complement and even enhance with chiropractic therapy.
By working with Dr. Myers in chiropractic rehab, you will not only learn exercises that can promote further healing from pain and former injuries but also be treated for bone and muscular issues that may be deterring your road to recovery. Dr. Myers will provide you with a fully comprehensive treatment so you can return to wellness as quickly as possible.
Build Up Core Muscles for Proper Posture and Spinal Hygiene
Adults do not often stand or sit with correct posture, and this can be detrimental for spinal hygiene, alignment, bone growth, and joint health. The benefits of proper posture include the correct alignment of bones, joint tissue health, reduced stress on the body’s joints and ligaments, the prevention of overworked muscles and cramping, and more efficient movements with the muscles. Having poor posture can magnify depressive feelings, have adverse effects on the body’s functions like the immune system or digestive tract, and negatively impact personal perception and stress.
Incorrect and poor posture is linked to several factors. Obesity plays a significant role in forcing those who are overweight to have poor posture, leading to a number of side effects. Weak postural muscles can also be the cause of poor posture habits, damaging the spine similarly to those who are obese. Chiropractic treatment can assist in building core muscles for additional strength to support the body in correct positions of standing, sitting, and walking.
Through chiropractic treatment, Dr. Myers can encourage core muscle strength, proper posture, and a healthy, adjusted spine. It is essential to be mindful while sitting, standing, and walking to ensure that you are emulating correct posture to prevent adverse effects on your body. Only by being conscious of your posture at times throughout the day can you actively correct it. While Dr. Myers can teach you to have proper posture, it is just as important that you follow through with any given exercises and techniques learned and taught in the office.
Aid in Weight Loss
Obesity in the United States is at an all-time high, with the latest data from the Center for Disease Control showing that more than one-third of adult Americans are obese. Little know that chiropractic treatment can be an essential part of weight loss, and without it, patients could be missing out on a crucial area of shedding pounds.
Chiropractic treatment, while not being one cause of weight loss, does aid in encouraging the body to lose weight. Chiropractic adjustments realign the spine to promote overall health, and this includes better performance of the nervous system, immune system support, and relieving any pain the patient may have that could prevent exercise. A holistic approach to aid weight loss can help you maintain your goals and aim for a healthier lifestyle. Many chiropractors also advise on how to have a more balanced lifestyle and a nutritional diet, and these tips are valuable in keeping the weight off.
Alongside Dr. Myers, you can begin your weight loss journey with chiropractic care. Dr. Myers will provide you with exercises you can do on your own time, outside of the office. Chiropractic treatment is known to lower stress levels for the majority of patients, which is another factor behind obesity and weight gain. Regular visits to your chiropractor can help you maintain your weight loss goals.
