Why You Should Add Chiropractic Care to Your Wellness Routine

You may think of chiropractic care as something that may be helpful after an injury or if you have chronic pain. But did you know that chiropractic care can help improve your overall health wellbeing when used as part of your wellness routine?  

Although chiropractic care can help you recover after an injury or alleviate chronic pain, it offers many benefits that improve your overall health and boost your quality of life when added to your wellness routine. Even better? With chiropractic care, you don’t have to worry about side effects and interactions, like with medications or supplements. 

At OasisMD with multiple locations in Southern California, we put your health first. Regular chiropractic care from a highly skilled and experienced chiropractor, like Travis C. Ehlers, DC, in our San Diego office, not only helps your spine stay healthy, it also improves your wellbeing. 

Considering chiropractic care? Here are our top five reasons to consider adding chiropractic to your wellness routine.

1. Better sleep

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at least one-third of Americans don’t get enough sleep. To make matters worse, many of the most common sleep problems, like teeth grinding, insomnia, and sleep apnea, make problems for you during the waking hours, like fatigue, mood swings, weight gain, and memory troubles.

There’s good news for the sleep deprived. Regular chiropractic care can help you get a good night's rest. Because it improves your musculoskeletal system, chiropractic care helps your body better connect with your brain when it’s time to sleep. As these sleep signals become clearer over time, you’ll enjoy deeper and more fulfilling sleep.

2. Less stress, anxiety, and depression

It’s probably no surprise that we Americans are more stressed, anxious, and depressed than ever. Research indicates that millions of Americans experience stress and negative mental health conditions daily. 

Seeing a mental health professional is imperative if you’re suffering from one of these conditions. But regular chiropractic care also helps ease symptoms and correct physiological problems that may contribute to the psycho-emotional conditions.

Chiropractic care helps because a healthy spine fosters a healthy nervous system. When your spine is out of alignment, mental and physical stress are exacerbated. Because it improves both your spinal and nervous systems, chiropractic care helps chemically balance your body, helping your mood and reducing the symptoms of anxiety and depression.

3. Better mobility

Mobility helps you maintain a healthy weight and fight disease, making it an important aspect of health. When your spine and joints align properly, your body naturally moves better since your joints are more fluid. What’s more? Your ability to balance also improves. 

Adding chiropractic care to your wellness routine helps improve the range of motion in your back, hips, and legs. If you suffer from serious mobility problems, regular chiropractic care can help restore your quality of life.  

4. Increased energy

In today’s world, it’s easier than ever to stay seated and in front of different screens for most of the day. As a result, pain and tension in the spine, muscles, and joints may seem unavoidable or even normal. In fact, many people no longer pay attention to the muscle aches and pains we experience daily, only noting that we feel tired and run down. 

Dr. Ehlers understands how this fatigue negatively impacts your energy levels and overall health. There’s good news, however. A customized chiropractic care plan at OasisMD alleviates pressure and frees your body to move naturally, helping your energy levels improve.

5. Boosted immunity 

Chiropractic care helps repair subluxations, which are dislocations in the spinal or joint system that negatively impact your nervous system. When your nervous system isn’t functioning optimally, your immune system gets mixed signals. 

All of the benefits of chiropractic care work together: As your sleep cycle improves, you'll start feeling less stressed, you'll have more energy, and your immunity will get a boost. Since chiropractic care helps you rest better, stress less, and move more freely, your nervous system will settle, enabling your immune system to begin functioning optimally.
