Chiropractic care was historically considered by most people as the ideal way of managing internal damage and subluxations a body suffers after whiplash or prolonged poor posture.
This was because it was a non-invasive technique; an approach that appealed to many people who did not wish to use conventional painkillers and other medicines unnecessarily.
Recent research has continued to support the idea that chiropractic care for neck adjustments and spine adjustments help ease the nervous system. It was thought that since the nervous system controls all limbs and organs, its efficiency directly impacts other health related problems.
New studies have only corroborated this belief in recent years.
Here are some scientific studies that demonstrate the amazing capabilities of spinal neck adjustments.
Fix Mechanical Neck Pain
Research by Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia, demonstrated how Chiropractors can help eliminate neck pain. It concluded that advanced cervical manipulation was capable of producing ‘immediate and short term benefits’ for mechanical neck pain.
Cure Spinal Degeneration
As our body gets progressively older, the intervertebral discs in our spines lose their maneuverability and become increasingly stiff. This phenomenon is known as the Degenerated Disc disease and can severely impair mobility among older citizens.
However, a study conducted back in 1994 concluded that chiropractic adjustments can revitalize the spine by identifying the key cause behind it; joint lesion. The study found that people diagnosed with Degenerated Disc disease reported better mobility, less pain, and even a noticeable increase in height as a result of chiropractic treatments.
Antioxidants have been linked to numerous health related benefits because they defend the body against radicals, thus preventing many illnesses from taking root within a body. These substances have amazing benefits for a body and a recent study now shows that chiropractic therapy might be able to boost its production within a body.
The experiment tested a pool of people of varying ages to see what effect chiropractic care had on their blood. The researchers found that higher quantities of three antioxidants were present among the subjects, specifically uperoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and glutathione peroxidase (GPx). This is particularly remarkable as it happened despite there being no observable increase in the subject’s exercise routine of antioxidant catalase within the body; clear factors that might have caused the antioxidant levels to boost.
