There are many reasons you may want to visit a chiropractor, the most obvious being back or neck pain, headaches, and injury. However, these are just a few of the many reasons you may benefit from a chiropractor.
Any issues within your spine will inevitably affect your whole body. A misaligned spine can cause nerve-related problems as well as other uncomfortable symptoms such as joint dysfunction and inflammation and can even cascade into chronic illness. The nerves leaving your spinal cord are constantly sending and receiving signals, so any kink in the chain will distort those messages.
This article covers how a chiropractor can help you and why you should see me, Dr. Damon, for an adjustment of your body and overall well-being! Keep reading to learn how chiropractic care will help you feel more aligned and boost your mood.
Come visit my functional medicine & chiropractic office – you won’t regret it! Read about the top five benefits of visiting a chiropractor:
1. Say Goodbye to Stress
Understandably, the body is most functional when it is aligned properly. Misalignment of the spine can cause compression on the nerves, leading to physical stress on the muscles. This pain and discomfort can have a serious impact on your quality of life, which will further exacerbate emotional and physical stress.
Balancing the body is the best way to relieve tension in both the mind and body. When you remove tension and stress, you can remove inflammation and lower your risk of disease.
2. Improve Your Posture
More people are developing curves in their spines due to poor posture. The overuse of a computer or phone can cause issues with the delicate nerve of the neck. Over time, a chiropractor will help you realign the neck and spine to improve your posture, which will reduce overall pain. You will also have a series of functional exercises and stretches that will encourage a balanced body.
3. Boost Your Mood
If you are experiencing pain, you likely notice a correlation to your mood. If you are experiencing a lot of discomfort, then you probably aren’t the happiest camper. Mental health challenges such as depression and ADHD frequently improve with consistent chiropractic care.
Improving your spinal health will trigger the release of hormones that help your body and improve your mood such as:
Oxytocin- increases the sensation of social bonding, improving neuro-communication
Cortisol- blocks the feeling of pain derived from inflammation
Neurotensin- reduces stress-induced pain
Chiropractic adjustments encourage the release of helpful hormones such as oxytocin, cortisol, and neurotensin.

4. Support Your Immune System
If your nervous system isn’t functioning adequately due to certain signal flows being cut off or impinged, the systems and organs that follow will suffer. Improving the communication between the mind and body via the nervous system will place the body in an optimal state to heal itself.
Chiropractic care additionally stimulates the lymphatic system in order to flush away bodily waste and circulate oxygenated blood to various points in the body that need support. By focusing on the optimization of the body as a whole singular system instead of just treating symptoms and hoping they don’t come back, a chiropractor sets a foundation for your body to fight off anything unwanted.
Not only will you get sick less frequently, but when you do get sick (it happens to the healthiest of us), your body will fight and recover more effectively and quickly. Studies have even shown chiropractic care increases antibody levels.

5. Sleep Soundly
A lack of sleep can lead to a variety of health issues, so it’s crucial to get enough and a high quality of it. Stress, pain, and general discomfort can impact your sleep for the worse. With proper spinal alignment, you will experience less pain in bed and, therefore, sleep better!
More quality sleep will also improve your mood, boost your immune system, and support your body’s overall health.
