Promoting Overall Wellness Through Chiropractic Care

Written By LaVallee Chiropractic on March 30, 2018

Did you know that there’s one simple thing that can significantly improve your general health that’s not specific to diet or exercise? 

It’s chiropractic wellness care.

Chiropractic care involves much more than just treating physical pain. 

It focuses on the nervous system and optimization of the brain-body communication network

Simply put, there is a strong correlation between the state of your nervous system and your overall health.

Your Nervous System & Your Health

The nervous system is made up of your brain, spinal cord and nerves and is responsible for telling every part of your body what it needs to do, and ensures everything works as it should. 

Maintaining a healthy state relies on your nervous system functioning at its best. 

So if you experience injury or misalignment to a part of the body that protects the brain, spinal cord or nerves, your overall wellness will also be impaired. 

For instance, misalignment of the spine, or abnormal vertebrae movements – also known as vertebral subluxations – can cause irritation and inflammation, compromising the nervous system’s ability to communicate with the rest of the body, and function as it should.

This is where a chiropractor comes in.

Chiropractic Wellness Care

Chiropractors are the only health care professionals that undergo years of training to be experts at correcting subluxations. This makes chiropractic care one of the most effective treatments for wellness.

At LaVallee Chiropractic, our patients report improvements in their wellbeing above and beyond the alleviation of pain. 

Positive wellness benefits after chiropractic care include stress relief and improvements in breathing, digestion and circulation, and even a decrease in blood pressure – one of the leading causes of preventable death in North America.

In fact, University of Washington researchers found in a recent study that a mind-body approach was a more effective treatment for back pain than prescription medicine.

What is particularly interesting though are studies confirming that chiropractic adjustments and correction of vertebral subluxation leads to measurable health benefits whether there are specific symptoms or not. 

For this reason, we are also seeing a growing number of people without symptoms, proactively seek chiropractic care to achieve and maintain optimal wellness.
