Health Conditions and Chiropractic Care


5 Health Conditions Not Many Of Us Expect Chiropractic Care Can Help With

It’s true that majority of people who seek chiropractic care suffers from back pain. However, that doesn’t mean it’s the only condition chiropractors can treat. They may be known for it but they’re more than just bone doctors. Here are some conditions that research has discovered chiropractic care can also help with.

1. Bell’s Palsy

Results may vary from person to person but with chiropractic adjustments, Bell’s palsy patients will experience improved motion, relieved pain, and addressed nerve issues. This is a great treatment for them since this condition causes facial paralysis, hearing disorders, problems with the jaw and associated muscles. Acupuncture can increase blood flow to the paralyzed facial muscles, and provide more nutrition to help diminish the inflammation.

2. Tinnitus, And Vertigo

There was a documented clinical case of a 75-yr old patient suffering from intense symptoms of these conditions for 5 weeks before consulting a chiropractor. The patient then received upper cervical-specific chiropractic care. The progress showed to be beneficial since the symptoms were eased and her conditioned improved.  

3. Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Chrohn's Disease and Colitis

A study back in 2007 showed patients who received spinal adjustments as a complementary medicine for their illness resulted to long term and stable remission of their IBD symptoms. Nutrition has an important role in the management of IBD, Chron's and Colitis. This role includes the prevention and correction of malnutrition, the prevention of osteoporosis and in children the promotion of optimal growth and development.

4. Premenstrual Discomfort

PMS symptoms include back pain, bloating, cramping, and fatigue. This is often because there’s evidence of nerve compromise to your reproductive organs. By combining manual spinal adjustments and soft tissue therapy premenstrual discomfort would improve.

5. ADHD

Hyperactivity, inattentiveness, impulsivity, behavioral, social and emotional difficulties respond well to spinal manipulation compared to medication because it directly deals with the nervous system through the spine. Nutritional factors such as food additives, refined sugars, food sensitivities/allergies, and fatty acid deficiencies have all been linked to ADHD. There is increasing evidence that many children with behavioral problems are sensitive to one or more food components that can negatively impact their behavior.
