Getting adjusted greatly helps keep your spine and nervous system healthy.

Here are the eight most important benefits of getting upper cervical chiropractic care on a regular basis:

Improved Moods

Most might probably find this to believe but research shows that getting upper cervical chiropractic literally makes you happier. This is due to the fact that getting adjusted improves the body’s hormone balance. It facilitates the production of good hormones such as dopamine and norepinephrine while, at the same time, inhibiting the production of bad hormones such as cortisol. This greatly influences how the brain and body behaves. It makes a person feel good. And when you’re feeling good, you tend to be in a good mood. This also makes seeing an upper cervical chiropractor an important solution to explore for people who are suffering from anxiety or depression.

Increased Energy

Increased Energy

Getting an upper cervical chiropractic adjustment improves the overall performance of every part of the body given that the nervous system influences everything. If the body is a machine, upper cervical chiropractic care is like premium-grade oil that enables every cog to perform at its best. This allows the body to use energy more efficiently. This increases your energy reserves so you’ll be able to stay active for longer periods and suffer less fatigue.

Improved Sleep

Millions of Australians suffer from insomnia or some other form of chronic sleeping disorder. Hormone imbalance, often caused by stress, is generally considered the biggest driving factor for the development of insomnia. And since upper cervical chiropractic care restores the body’s hormone balance, getting adjusted serves as an effective way of improving the quality of sleep.

Fewer Colds and Flus

A recent study conducted by New York’s Preventive Medicine Institute determined that people who receive regular upper cervical chiropractic care, on average, have an immune system that is three times stronger compared to that of people who never received chiropractic adjustment. The institute’s Chief of Cancer Prevention Research, Dr Ronald Pero, led the study which involved 107 individuals who have received, and continue to receive, long-term chiropractic care.

Less Pain

Spine misalignment can lead to the development of pain in various areas of the body. Popular solutions often require surgery. However, an invasive procedure such as spine surgery always carries a set of risks. Chiropractic care can realign a spine across several sessions without the need for drugs or surgery.

Avoid Drug Dependence

In the past few decades, there has been growing concern regarding the adverse side effects of the long-term use of prescription drugs. There are people who get addicted to the very drugs that are supposed to treat them that they continue taking the prescription drugs, sometimes in dangerously increasing dosages, even after their condition has been cured. This has led to an increasing demand for drug-free alternatives to wellness. Chiropractic care is one of the most popular of these alternatives. It is completely drug-free.

Spend Less Money

Chiropractic care is exponentially more cost-effective than the long-term use of prescription drugs or getting surgery.  The Canadian Government’s Pran Manga Report of 1993 summed this up perfectly, “There would be highly significant cost savings if more management of low-back pain was transferred from physicians to chiropractors… Users of chiropractic care have substantially lower health care costs, especially inpatient costs, than those who use medical care only.”
