Our team of chiropractors in BC can treat wide range of health problems; chiropractor care in general is commonly used for pain relief, spinal alignment and other skeletal and muscular disorders. However, there is actually more conditions on the list that perhaps most people are not aware of. Chiropractic care can be beneficial to improve conditions like sinusitis, blood pressure and even ADHD.
Let’s take a look at these 5 conditions and how seeing a chiropractor can help you improve your health.
Nerve related or physical causes can affect the way nasal and sinus passages drain. If you suffer from sinusitis, you may want to consider chiropractic care. While chiropractic manipulative therapy can be effective in treating chronic sinusitis, the chiropractor may combine it with other techniques or recommend additional treatment.
High Blood Pressure
Experts around the world continue to try to find ways to control blood pressure and in that process they have found that the spinal manipulation employed by chiropractors has been successful as a treatment for hypertension or blood pressure. Researchers still advice is not for everybody but this approach is worth considering, especially if you wish to avoid the common side effects of mainstream medicine.
IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease)
IBD and other bowel disorders greatly affect your daily life. Many who suffer from these ailments often look for different solutions, especially one without side effects. According to a survey Canadian chiropractors reported success in using spinal manipulation to relieve IBD, colitis, and other bowel disorders.
In clinical studies, manual spinal adjustment combined with soft tissue therapy has been found to support PMS symptoms. In one study, 2 groups of women were tested. The first group received chiropractic while the other was given placebo, then the groups switched. Each time, the group receiving chiropractic reported the greatest improvements.
The standard medical approach uses psychotropic medications, the same medications associated with serious and often deadly side effects. Surely there must be a better way… chiropractic care may be it. One study looked at chiropractic treatment of boys 9-13 with diagnosed ADHD. Spinal manipulation with nutritional supplementation was reported to improve hyperactivity, inattentiveness, and impulsivity, behavioral, social and emotional difficulties. While this treatment did include other variables (diet), it does suggest perhaps ADHD may respond to alternative approaches rather than the standard reliance on pharmaceuticals.
