Many individuals first go to a chiropractor to resolve the discomfort they are feeling in their back or neck.
While chiropractic has repeatedly proven to be a highly effective means of reducing pain in the back and neck, what about after the pain subsides?
In asymptomatic individuals who no longer have, or have never endured, spine-related pain, what are the advantages of chiropractic?If you wish to learn more about this, visit Tacoma chiropractic.
If you have been to a chiropractor in the past or even if you have a family member who has used chiropractic services, you’ve undoubtedly heard that even though the pain is gone, the doctor has suggested services.
This post-pain service is usually referred to as preventive or repair treatment and, in some circles, is a little contentious as to whether it is actually helpful for individuals without pain.
Ask any chiropractor who not only works for a living in the field, but also definitely receives the same form of care they offer at the level of ‘preventative’ or ‘maintenance’ and they can naturally inform you that chiropractic is far more than a way to get out of pain – it is a way to preserve optimum health for life.
But what is shown by research?
According to a 2004 literature review by Sean M. Hannon, BA, DC, focusing on the value of chiropractic adjustments in patients with no noticeable discomfort, it was found that clear evidence exists to support that adjustments “confer health benefits to people regardless of the presence or absence of symptoms.”
In pregnant women under chiropractic treatment, the study showed substantial changes in respiration, range of motion, cardiovascular function, immune function, muscle strength, healing time and shortened labor cycles, just to name a few advantages.
I have seen first-hand the effect that changes can have on patients who have ‘no pain’ during my 18 years of chiropractic. The aim for these individuals, myself included, is to preserve optimum nerve flow from their spine to their muscles and organ systems to ensure that they perform at their full level and to prevent complications from creeping up on them.
