Chiropractic Treatments Can Help More Than Just Back Pain
Your back and spinal column are extremely important to your overall health. They not only help you stand up straight, but they also contain the spinal cord, the main pathway of nerves that connects your brain to the rest of your body. If your spinal column is misaligned, it may exacerbate other conditions all over your body. Conversely, putting your spinal column back into alignment can contribute to the improvement of your overall health.
We at Vantage Integrative Health + Wellness offer many services that promote wellness, including chiropractic treatments, at our clinic in Calgary. Here are just a few of the conditions that chiropractic treatment may help relieve in conjunction with other medical treatments:
VertigoVertigo is a condition that makes you feel chronically dizzy. Different kinds of vertigo can be caused by problems in the inner ear, neck or brain. Realigning the spinal column with chiropractic treatment has been known to help relieve the symptoms of some kinds of vertigo.
We’re constantly learning more about how stress and anxiety take a toll on the body. Symptoms can even include headaches and back pain. Getting chiropractic treatment, however, can help you maintain your overall health and wellbeing, alleviating physical and mental symptoms of anxiety.
Asthma, the overproduction of mucus in your lungs that makes breathing more difficult, is a chronic condition that can be difficult to manage. Proper alignment of the spine through chiropractic treatment, however, can help you gain full expansion of the ribcage and help you breathe more comfortably with asthma.
Mineral and salt deposits that build up in your kidneys, also known as “stones,” can be an extremely painful experience—and that pain often manifests as back pain. With chiropractic treatment, however, some of that back pain can be relieved in some cases, making passing or otherwise treating your kidney stones much easier.
