5 Surprising Health Benefits of Regular Chiropractic Care

The human body is nothing short of an engineering marvel in which everything is somehow connected. More impressive is the fact that our bodies come equipped with their own security and triage systems, but often these systems are blocked or impeded — which is where regular chiropractic care can come in.

At Mass Ave. Chiropractic, under the direction of Dr. Joseph Kielur, we offer a wide range of chiropractic services that approach your health in a way that steps back and takes a wider view of the human body and how to improve overall function.

To give you an idea of how effective this approach is, here are five areas of your health that can benefit from ongoing chiropractic care.

1. Strengthening immunity

Immunity is on everyone’s minds these days, and we’d like to first point out how regular chiropractic care addresses this critical area of your health. Your immune system isn’t one clearly defined organ — rather it’s a system of cells, organs, and tissues throughout your body that work together to fight off foreign invaders and disease.

For this system to function optimally, there can’t be any blockages in your body that prevent your immunity resources from flowing freely.

Through regular chiropractic care, we ensure that your musculoskeletal system is properly aligned, opening all of the “lifelines” within your body to flow freely.

2. Encouraging blood flow

The human body contains about 5.6 liters of blood that circulate throughout your entire body three times a minute. As you can see, any slow-down in this fast-moving system can deprive your tissues of critical oxygen and nutrients.

Through chiropractic care, we ensure that your blood is able to flow as it should by addressing restrictions in your joints, subluxations along your spine, and stimulating your nervous system. And that brings us to our next point.

3. Stimulating your nervous system

There are approximately 46 miles of nerves in the average adult human body that stretch from head to toe. Since your spine is the main conduit between your central nervous system and your peripheral nervous system, we pay close attention to any misalignments along this important pathway to ensure that all 46 miles of your nervous system are able to communicate properly.

4. Relieving tension

Our lives seem to be more stressful than ever these days, which can lead to body-wide tension. Through regular chiropractic care, we address muscle tightness, as well as tightness in your connective tissues, such as your tendons and ligaments. In relieving this tension, we’re able to restore pain-free movement.

5. Tackling inflammation

Rounding out our list of benefits of regular chiropractic care is the effect it has on inflammation. 

Whether you suffer from chronic joint pain or lower back pain, inflammation plays an influential role in your comfort level. By re-aligning your musculoskeletal structure through chiropractic care, we encourage the flow of healing resources that reduce inflammation, thereby relieving your pain.
