Couple runningWhen do you schedule appointments with your Rohnert Park chiropractor?

If you’re like most people, it’s when you’re experiencing back pain or increased headaches.

Did you know that you can receive chiropractic care for illness? In fact, regular chiropractic treatment can aid in improving your overall health and reducing your risk for certain conditions.

Chiropractic Care for Illness: How It Can Improve Your Health and Reduce Illness

Chiropractic adjustments have helped millions of people dealing with chronic conditions, like headaches, sciatica, whiplash, and back pain. However, chiropractors also recommend chiropractic care for illness and an improvement in overall wellness.

For example, in a 2018 report, researchers found that after three months of chiropractic care, a woman with chronic tension headaches:

  • Experienced reduced pain from headaches

  • Had fewer headaches per week

  • Was able to lower the amount of pain medication she took

  • Noticed fewer depressive episodes and reduced anxiety

One of the main reasons why chiropractic care can improve a person’s health is because of proper spinal alignment. When your spine is misaligned, it impinges on the nerves, which can lead to pain, reduced range of motion, and inflammation.

Inflammation is a major risk factor in many diseases and health conditions, including heart disease and lupus.

Proper spinal alignment also promotes the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). CSF delivers nutrients to the spine and brain, in addition to carrying away toxins and waste material.

Chiropractic Care – Way More than Pain Management

Dr. Angelica Farrell, D.C., has been trained not just in spinal manipulation but also in general health and wellness, anatomy and physiology, and fitness and nutritional concepts.

You can use her knowledge to your advantage. Book regular appointments with your Dr. Farrell to reduce your pain, improve your overall health, and prevent or overcome certain health conditions.
