How Chiropractic Care Makes A Difference

In the last several years, videos of chiropractic have gone viral with thousands of people watching satisfying videos of adjustments that ”pop” or “crack” the spine. While these videos can be entertaining, there’s so much more to Chiropractic and how it can improve your life.

Chiropractic can’t cure anything, but your own body can! When Chiropractic in Elmhurst removes the subluxations in your spine, life is able to flow through your nervous system and to the rest of your body. The brain will then have better motor control and can receive sensory input much easier. The body can then send cells and nutrients easily to the areas that need to fight off an infection or repair and replace cells.

Over the course of your life, your body never stops working. It’s constantly checking and balancing your systems to keep you functional and healthy. When you get adjusted, you’re helping the body to communicate with itself so it can use its own innate intelligence for healing and growth.

Conditions that May Improve With Chiropractic in Elmhurst IL

Many patients seek out chiropractic for low back pain because a lot of chiropractic work helps with this. Whether the pain is from a disc herniation, nerve root impingement, or subluxations (restriction movement in the spine), chiropractic focuses on the cause of the pain, not just the symptoms. After being adjusted, your body can then begin to heal itself thus making the low back pain go away!

There are also so many other conditions that indirectly benefit from chiropractic care. By taking care of the nervous system, the nervous system can then take care of others such as:

  • Digestion
  • Hormone production
  • Kidney function
  • And even the immune system.

Chiropractic helps your body through a trickle down mechanism because when the body heals something, it can spend more time taking care of the rest of you.

Getting Your Life Back

Along with physical benefits, chiropractic can also help with mental health as well. Proper nerve function is essential for mental clarity, focus, and is linked with helping your body feel and perform better.

Mental and physical health can help you get your life back. Whether your goal is to be able to play with your kids again, or the ability to drive without pain, healing is possible.

Studies on Chiropractic and Immune Dysfunction

Dr. Heidi Haavik is a researcher in New Zealand dedicated to studying chiropractic and how it benefits the body. A study published in 2021 by Dr. Haavik and others looked at 23 different published papers on High-Velocity Low-Amplitude (HVLA) controlled vertebral thrusts and how they impacted immune system markers.

By looking at the research presented in the studies that found that “HVLA controlled vertebral thrust influences the levels of immune mediators in the body, including neuropeptides, inflammatory markers, and endocrine markers.” This is really significant to your immune system because this is showing how with chiropractic your body can heal itself without having to work as hard.

What our patients say…

“Staff is polite and responds to inquiries very quickly. That’s a huge plus. Nothing more conflicting and frustrating than having a good doctor with rude staff. Dr. Greg is very professional and clearly explains the process and is honest about what to expect from the visits and outcome. I have experience with the Gonstead method he uses and have had great results from it. I love this place. I only wish Adapt Chiropractic had been around longer so I could have gone here from the beginning of my healing process.”
