For many, chiropractic care means only occasional adjustments to relieve back or neck pain. But research has shown that chiropractic care is so much more than just a quick fix to a bit of pain. Cape Coral chiropractors have a powerful influence over the central nervous system through neurologically-based chiropractic adjustments that alleviate spinal misalignments and restore whole body health. But just what exactly can chiropractic care do and how is it effective?

Chiropractic Relieves Stressors

The nerve pressure theory is commonly associated with chiropractic care. While this theory rings true, that chiropractic does indeed relieve pinched nerves and nerve pressure, there is actually more at work during a chiropractic adjustment than just that.

Chiropractic care from a Cape Coral chiropractor also has a direct effect on the brain, an essential part of the central nervous system. Spinal subluxations can cause other chemical stressors (inflammation) and physical stressors (strain put on the vertebrae). When the brain recognizes these stressors, it perceives them as negative and goes into action to protect the body against stressors.

The sympathetic nervous system is activated and adrenaline is released into the body, prompting the “fight or flight” response. While this response is a good reaction when the body really is under stress for short periods of time, it can be extremely damaging if activated for a long period of time. It can trigger a myriad of health issues, such as digestion problems, poor immune health, or even reproductive issues.

The energy used to run the sympathetic response takes away from the energy the body needs to function optimally, so a long-term sympathetic response is harmful and unwanted. Thankfully, we don’t have to live this way. Dr. Omar Clark of Experience Family Chiropractic can replace the negative responses due to stressors with positive and appropriate responses to help your body function better.

Adjustments Are Important to Central Nervous System Function

Regular, gentle chiropractic adjustments will remove spinal misalignments that not only cause nerve pressure, but also dysfunction of the stress responses. Chiropractic adjustments from Dr. Omar Clark will recalibrate the brain to stop the release of stress chemicals so the body can rest and heal. The positive state of the brain, spine, and central nervous system are crucial to the overall health and wellness of the body. Chiropractic adjustments are powerful tools to restore function within the body to help you be the healthiest you can be.

Other Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustments

The many benefits of chiropractic care are simply astounding. In addition to improving the operation of the central nervous system and increasing nerve function, it also has an immense effect on the musculoskeletal system. It has been shown to increase muscle strength and stability as well as reduce chronic pain. It also radically affects the immune system, decreases the risk of heart disease, increases fertility, normalizes blood pressure, and the list goes on and on.

If you aren’t taking advantage of all that chiropractic care has to offer, it’s time to start today. Contact Cape Coral chiropractor Dr. Omar Clark to schedule your first visit so you can experience health, wellness, and all the incredible benefits of regular chiropractic care.
