Whether or not you are a regular around the chiropractic office, or a stranger to the entire process, these facts may amaze you:

1. The biggest reason for missing work is due to back issues.
Bending over or leaning forward for a significant amount of time each day leads to many issues in the spine. Arthritis, nerve sensitivity, and hernia can all be dued to continuous stress in your back. Visiting a chiropractic specialist can help prevent further recurring issues without surgery or medication.

2. Improving bad posture will not only help you sit up straighter, but it can also help you walk taller – both literally and figuratively. Studies have shown that bad posture has a negative affect on your self confidence, and also directly affects work functionality.

3. Chiropractic treatments can ease the distress of pregnancy! It is a safe and painless method, as are all chiropractic treatments. Chiropractic can also affect pregnancy in a lot of beneficial ways, including preventing nausea and decreasing the time of labor and delivery!

4. Chiropractors are a powerful tool to enlist when striving to treat anxiety and depression. Their schooling includes long-term study of the neurological system, as well as the external factors that affect it. A good chiropractor not only helps your body heal, but treats your mind as well. If you are suffering from tension, depression, or anxiety, a chiropractic doctor can help you manage it with treatment.

5. Getting routine chiropractic visits reinforces your immune system. A more powerful immune system can better protect against allergens: both in resisting old allergies and helping prevent new ones. In fact, reports of the chiropractic benefits to fighting illness go all the way back to the early 1900s. During the 1917-1918 flu pandemic, the death rate for the average medical patient exposed to the flu virus was 7 %, while chiropractic patients experienced a fatality rate of.25 %!

6. Chiropractic specialists know a lot about the human body, and want to educate you so you can help yourself heal and grow. Part of their knowledge deals with nutrition: what you need – and don’t need – to continue on the path toward physical fitness and wellbeing. A chiropractic specialist can steer you in the direction of healthy eating habits that will allow you to manage your weight and energy, while encouraging you in physical activities that get you moving without having doing more harm than good.

7. Dr. Charles Robinson Johnson was known as “The Man Who Made Peekskill Famous”.
