Aligned and Alive: The Impact of Chiropractic Adjustments on Well-Being
Aligned and Alive: The Impact of Chiropractic Adjustments on Well-Being is a podcast hosted by Brianna Mew and features faith testimonies, candid conversations and personal experiences about getting ALIGNED and ALIVE in God’s purpose for your life.
Chiropractic adjustments are non-invasive manual manipulations performed by chiropractors to align and restore proper movement to the spine and nervous system. They address restrictions or misalignments in the spinal joints called subluxations. Correcting these misalignments helps the nervous system to function optimally, which enhances the body’s ability to adapt to stress and promotes physical and emotional wellness.
Studies show that spinal adjustments help to relieve pain and improve posture and mobility. They also increase your flexibility, reduce stiffness and tension, and stimulate the release of feel-good hormones such as oxytocin. The reduction of these chemicals increases social bonding, reduces stress levels, and leads to a sense of wellbeing that can be transformative.
Chronic stress is a huge contributing factor to back pain, neck pain and other musculoskeletal conditions. When your body is under stress, it tightens the muscles, causing you to hunch over and strain your back. Spinal adjustments and manual manipulations release the tension in your muscles and improve your posture, making it easier to breathe normally, and thus helping to reduce stress.
Moreover, regular visits to your chiropractor can help keep your immune system strong and healthy. When your body is out of alignment, it has a harder time fighting off bacteria and viruses. Keeping your body in good alignment can help you avoid illness and decrease multiple physician and health center visits, as well as prevent costly surgeries and hospital stays.
The World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) recognizes that women, children and adolescents face unique individual and societal health challenges. The WFC supports the need for a comprehensive public health approach that addresses the health challenges of these populations, including musculoskeletal conditions. The WFC believes that chiropractors are uniquely qualified to offer a holistic and evidence-based approach to addressing these musculoskeletal conditions.
