Many people choose to start seeing a chiropractor after they have already been injured in a car accident, a sports game, or even an afternoon of yard work. While chiropractic care holds many benefits for healthy and injured people alike, there's no doubt that it's beneficial for people whose bodies need to heal. At Lifetime Health and Wellness, serving the Westminster and Broomfield area, here is why we believe that the right chiropractic care can be key in helping people recuperate from their injuries so they can live well.
Chiropractic Care Allows Your Body to Communicate with Itself
Your spine doesn't just hold your body up. It also houses your nerves. When your spine is misaligned, a number of problems can result from it. One of the more serious problem of misalignment is that your nervous system gets interrupted. Your nerves can't send messages efficiently between your brain and your body when they are pinched or when there's another obstruction in the way. Chiropractic care can re-open any channels of nerve communication that might have been cut off. This allows your body and your brain to "talk" so that your body can finally heal correctly. You'll also experience less back pain and stiffness during the healing process, if you seek chiropractic care.
Massage Therapy Increases Circulation for Better Healing
If you have a soft-tissue injury, massage therapy will help bring more blood, oxygen, and nutrients to the area, stimulating the healing process. Therapeutic massage also reduces your stiffness and swelling in the injured area. When your inflammation goes down, your body is able to start repairing and rebuilding damaged tissues. Massage therapy is an effective way to manage the pain of an injury.
