You want to work on your posture:
Being adjusted is a great first step in improving your posture. Having good
posture is essential to your overall health and has been shown to have a massive affect on everything from your mood, to the way your body responds to stress, to how alert and focused you are during the day. Developing good posture is an easy way to change your health for the better, and the knowledgable staff at Beaumont Street Chiropractic Clinic is ready to help you with complimentary Posture Screenings and personalised exercise programs.
You are feeling stressed:
Stress has a major affect on your physical health. When you are stressed, cortisol is released into your bloodstream as part of the “fight or flight” response and this can lead to all of the familiar complaints; food cravings, acne, insomnia, weight gain, etc. Being adjusted and having your spine in proper alignment will help to ease some of the effects of cortisol, as well as helping you to feel some physical relief. Of course, people who see a chiropractor on a regular basis may also reap the benefits of better posture which has been shown to help combat the effects of cortisol, so keeping up with your wellness care can make a big difference.
You have a cold:
We all know how miserable it is when you’re not feeling well. It’s easy to opt out of any activity in favour of staying home. However, when you have a cold, getting adjusted can help for a couple of reasons. First, being adjusted helps to break up any congestion you might be feeling, making it easier for you to breathe and relieving some of the pressure in your sinuses. Second, being in alignment means that blood and spinal fluid can travel uninhibited through the spine giving your immune system a big boost!
You have been travelling:
Travel can be exhausting! Sitting in uncomfortable chairs for extended periods of time and lifting heavy luggage can leave us feeling less than our best. Jet lag is also a major factor in recovering from travel, as it can interrupt our sleep patterns. Seeing a chiropractor for an adjustment after traveling can help to alleviate any unfavourable side effects you’re left with after your trip.
You are in pain:
This one might seem obvious, but you would be surprised by the number of patients who wait for pain simply to go away on its own. Pain is often the last symptom to appear when there is a problem, so it is a good idea to get it checked out right away. Masking the pain with tablets is only a short term solution and isn’t addressing the underlying cause of the pain. A chiropractic adjustment seeks to locate the source, and correct the problem so you can be pain free without needing to rely on medication.
You are tired:
If you have noticed that you seem to be more fatigued than usual for any length of time, it’s a good idea to have an adjustment. Often times, fatigue is a symptom of another problem, either illness, stress, or some other physical strain on the body. Chiropractic adjustments are often helpful in boosting your immune system, fighting stress and putting your body back in balance to help you get better, more restful sleep
You want the competitive edge:
It’s no surprise that several professional athletes work with a chiropractic team. High impact activities, twisting motions, or simply repetitive movements can all take a toll on our bodies over time. If you want to perform at your very best and prevent injury, check in with your chiropractor. Adjustments help to make sure that your body stays at it’s optimum level of health, moving efficiently and effectively, so that you can continue doing the activities you love without pain or interruption.
You have had an accident:
Whether it’s a car accident, a fall or just a nasty bump on the head, it’s important to have your spine checked. This ensures that your body can help heal itself as quickly as possible, and helps to minimise any long term side effects. Severe accidents may require more than one treatment to sort out more serious issues like whiplash or any other physical trauma.
You want to enhance your health:
“But I feel fine!” and we want to keep you feeling fine! To ensure that you continue , it’s a good idea to come in once in a while and so we can sort out any small misalignments before they become big problems. Think of it this way, you take your car in for a tune up so that they can catch problems early before you end up stranded on the side of the road. Chiropractic adjustments work the same way!
