6 Surprising Benefits of Chiropractic Care

6 Surprising Benefits of Chiropractic Care

The family medicine providers at Clinica Agua Viva in Lindsay, California use a variety of treatments and therapies to support the health and wellness of our patients. Our team, led by Dr. Erick Madrigal, offers urgent care and primary care services for the whole family, as well as chiropractic care.

Could you benefit from chiropractic care? Here are six surprising reasons why you might want to look into this holistic, nonsurgical treatment option for issues like back pain, whiplash, and more.

1. Improves spinal motion

Chiropractic adjustment can be performed manually or with small instruments. In this treatment approach, your provider applies controlled force to your spinal joints. Spinal manipulation improves your overall spinal motion, which has many potential benefits.

2. Corrects poor posture

Your spine runs the whole length of your neck and back, from the base of your skull all the way down to your tailbone. Irregular spinal curvature is a major contributor to posture problems. Did you know that bad posture today can result in long-term musculoskeletal problems down the road?

Chiropractic care can correct some of the effects of bad posture. Your provider at Living Water Clinic can also help you understand how to achieve better posture, protecting you from potential chronic pain issues and degeneration later in life.

3. Boosts physical function

When your spine is properly aligned and your posture isn’t putting abnormal pressure on any parts of your body, you’re better able to function physically, both in terms of pushing your body to a competitive edge and of moving smoothly through daily activities without pain or inflammation.

4. Resolves low back pain

Low back pain is a common complaint our primary care providers see at Living Water Clinic. It might not sound like a very serious problem, but persistent lower back pain can bother you more than you might realize.

Chiropractic care is an effective nonsurgical treatment option to reduce or eliminate your low back pain problems due to the role of your spine and spinal joints in back pain.

5. Relieves headaches and neck pain

Chiropractic care focused on your cervical spine, the area of your spine that’s located in your neck, can help manage chronic headaches and migraines. It’s also great for whiplash-related neck injuries, which often occur after car accidents or high-speed falls.

6. Kickstarts healing

Chiropractic care relies on your body’s own natural healing capabilities. Our licensed providers understand how to activate your own ability to heal, potentially improving your condition if you’re living with a degenerative disease like osteoarthritis.
