Health Benefits of Seeing a NUCCA Doctor
Many people have never seen a chiropractor and may be completely unaware of the incredible health benefits of regularly seeing a NUCCA chiropractor. When you visit an upper cervical chiropractor because you are having a specific problem or you just want to improve your overall health and well-being, you are already taking a more positive approach to your health than a majority of Americans.
Here are 12 health benefits that regular chiropractic patients receive.
Fewer Colds and Flus
Research indicates that Chiropractic patients have incredibly strong immune systems. Dr. Ronald Pero, chief of cancer prevention research at New York’s Preventive Medicine Institute measured 107 individuals who had received long-term Chiropractic care. The chiropractic patients were shown to have a 200% greater immune competence than people who had not received chiropractic care.
With 40 million Americans experiencing a chronic sleeping disorder and 62% of American adultsexperiencing problems sleeping a few nights a week, Americans desperately need to sleep better.
Chiropractic has been shown to improve sleep, both in children and adults.
When the spine is misaligned due to accidents and injuries, pain frequently develops. Research tells us that Chiropractic adjustments are effective for helping people with pain.
In my experience, when someone is under chiropractic care for a while they begin to notice some of the positive side benefits of chiropractic, including more energy and less fatigue.
If you do a Google search to see all the chiropractic patients who have provided testimonials indicating that they have more energy now you will be overwhelmed.
Spend Less Money
Chiropractic care has also been shown to be more cost-effective than the medical approach of drugs or surgery. For example, The Manga Report, a 1993 Canadian government study was quoted as saying:
“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.”
Each year, about 4.5 million Americans visit their doctor’s office or the emergency room because of adverse prescription drug side effects. Chiropractic care is a drugless approach to health that has been shown toreduce pharmaceutical costs by 51.8%.
Have Healthier Kids
In a study of 200 kids under chiropractic care versus 200 kids under traditional medical care, the chiropractic kids had fewer ear infections, asthma and allergies.
Research has demonstrated those suffering with anxiety and depression frequently have dramatic results with chiropractic care. This is because chiropractic has been shown to improve hormone balance. Decreasing the bad hormones like cortisol and increasing the good hormones, such as dopamine and norepinephrine makes a big difference in how the brain and body works and how a person feels.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics reported that chiropractic patients under care results in a 43 percent fewer hospital admissions, then those under medical care.
Have a Natural Resource
Doctors of chiropractic are an excellent resource for your health. They are well-trained, naturally minded professionals who undergo a rigorous education in the healing sciences, similar to that of medical doctors. In some areas, such as anatomy, physiology, rehabilitation, nutrition and public health, they receive more education than a medical doctor.
Be more Satisfied
In addition, chiropractic patients report a greater level of satisfaction with chiropractic care, compared to the medical approach to pain syndromes.
Have an Important Part of Your Health Care Team
Doctors of chiropractic work in tandem with other healthcare professionals. If your condition requires attention from another branch of the healthcare profession, that recommendation or referral will be made.
