Many people in Lincoln Park aren’t sure if visiting a chiropractor is right for them. Others have been going for years and already know the benefits. If you’ve never received a chiropractic adjustment and experience chronic pain, it could be time to visit a center and have an adjustment. You may feel better than you have in years and work on correcting postural issues that can cause neck or back pain.
Muscles are prone to tense up when you’re stressed or in a rush. Most of the time, they relax on their own, but sometimes they can’t. The nerves send signals to the brain that says you’re still on high alert or that there is something wrong, causing the muscle to stay taut. While medical doctors may prescribe muscle relaxers or pain medication, they only mask the pain or issue. In fact, most of the muscle relaxers only work for a few hours. If the muscle tenses back up, you’re in a recurring pattern of taking medication.
A chiropractor adjusts the spine so that it is aligned correctly. When that happens, muscles, organs, and everything else in the body shifts back to the right place. You may need adjustments on many areas of the body to get everything fully aligned. It may also be necessary to visit multiple times a week at the beginning of your treatment plan to teach your body the new alignment, so it gets used to it.
Increased Energy/Better Sleep
When your spine is aligned, you may find that you sleep better. When you get more restful sleep, it also means you wake refreshed and ready for your day.
