benefits of combing chiropractic and accupunture

Have you ever wondered how combining two holistic approaches to healthcare could enhance your well-being? Chiropractic care and acupuncture, individually known for their remarkable benefits, create a powerful synergy when combined. In this blog post, we’ll explore the unique advantages of integrating chiropractic care and acupuncture and how this combination can optimize your health and healing.

Chiropractic care and acupuncture share a common goal: promoting the body’s natural healing ability. While chiropractic care focuses on the alignment of the spine and nervous system, acupuncture targets the flow of energy (or Qi) throughout the body. When used together, they create a harmonious balance, maximizing the potential for healing and overall wellness.

  1. Enhanced Pain Relief:

One of the primary reasons people seek chiropractic care and acupuncture is to alleviate pain. Chiropractic adjustments correct misalignments in the spine, reducing pressure on nerves and providing relief from conditions such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches. Acupuncture, on the other hand, stimulates specific points on the body, triggering the release of endorphins and promoting pain reduction. By combining these two modalities, patients often experience enhanced pain relief and faster healing.

  • Improved Function and Mobility:

Chiropractic care improves spinal alignment, which in turn optimizes nerve function. This can lead to improved joint mobility and overall body function. By incorporating acupuncture into the treatment plan, the combination works synergistically to reduce inflammation, relax muscles, and enhance circulation. As a result, patients often experience increased range of motion, improved flexibility, and better overall physical performance.

  • Holistic Approach to Wellness:

Both chiropractic care and acupuncture embrace a holistic approach to healthcare. They consider the body as an interconnected system and focus on addressing the root causes of health issues rather than merely treating symptoms. By combining these two therapies, patients can enjoy a comprehensive and personalized treatment plan that addresses their specific needs, supporting their overall well-being and promoting long-term health.

  • Stress Reduction and Emotional Well-being:

Chronic stress can have a detrimental impact on our health, leading to various physical and emotional issues. Chiropractic care and acupuncture are known to reduce stress and promote relaxation. Chiropractic adjustments help release tension in the body, while acupuncture balances the energy flow, promoting a sense of calmness. Together, they create a holistic approach to managing stress, enhancing emotional well-being, and restoring balance to the mind and body.

  • Accelerated Healing:

When chiropractic care and acupuncture are combined, they create an environment conducive to faster healing. Chiropractic adjustments ensure optimal nerve function, allowing the body’s innate healing processes to work at their best. Acupuncture stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms, enhancing blood flow, reducing inflammation, and promoting tissue repair. By harnessing the power of these two therapies simultaneously, patients often experience expedited healing and recovery.

Chiropractic care and acupuncture are two powerful holistic approaches that, when combined, create a synergy that enhances their individual benefits. By integrating these modalities, patients can enjoy improved pain relief, enhanced function and mobility, holistic wellness, stress reduction, and accelerated healing. If you’re seeking a comprehensive and personalized approach to healthcare, consider the powerful combination of chiropractic care and acupuncture. Consult with a qualified healthcare professional to discuss how these therapies can support your health and well-being.

Remember, each individual’s response to treatment may vary, and it’s essential to consult with a chiropractor and acupuncturist who can create a tailored treatment plan based on your unique needs and goals. Embrace the power of this holistic combination and embark on a journey towards optimal health and vitality.

heart health

By Christina DeBusk|

healthy heartThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that one out of every three adults in the United States, roughly 70 million people in total, currently has issues with high blood pressure.

While this statistic is scary enough, they go on to say that only a little over half (52 percent to be exact), have this potentially life-threatening condition under control. This may be contributing to the estimated 1,000 people a day dying of heart related conditions.
While there are some organs a person can live without such as your gall bladder and even one of your kidneys, the heart is one organ that is absolutely necessary in order to survive. That makes taking care of it and nurturing its health not only critical to having a long, healthy life, but to having a life — period. One way to help your patients do that naturally is with the help of chiropractic care.

Chiropractic for lower blood pressure

Many studies have found that regular chiropractic visits can help lower blood pressure, sometimes the equivalent a double dose of blood pressure medication.
One study conducted by the University of Chicago involved 50 individuals who had both high blood pressure and spinal misalignments in their neck area. After just one chiropractic treatment session which involved specialized adjustment of the C-1 vertebra, the individuals involved in the study had dramatically dropped blood pressures which stayed at these lower rates for as many as eight weeks. The researchers further noted that this “decrease was equal to taking two blood-pressure drugs at once.” The study points out some DCs feel so strongly about the positive effects of treating this one particular vertebra that they have limited their practice to just this portion of the spine.
Another study found similar positive blood pressure results and was published in the March 2015 edition of the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine. In this case, 20 individuals were studied to determine what effect upper and lower cervical spinal manipulation had on their blood pressure and heart rate. After engaging in upper cervical spinal manipulation therapy, the researchers reported that the participants had lower systolic blood pressures. They also reported experiencing less pain upon conclusion of the treatment sessions.

Helping patients gain control

In some cases, people need medication to help control their blood pressure but, as you can see, chiropractic may also help keep it at lower and safer levels. Additionally, to help your patients get their blood pressure to healthier levels, the Mayo Clinic provides other suggestions for lowering blood pressure without using medication which include:

  • Losing weight if they weigh more than is healthy for their frame
  • Increasing their level of physical activity, aiming for at least one-half hour of exercise per day on average
  • Consuming a diet full of heart-healthy foods such as fruits, veggies, whole grains, and low-fat dairy
  • Decreasing salt intake by choosing foods lower in sodium, putting the salt shaker away, and limiting the amount of processed foods they consume
  • Drinking no more than one alcoholic beverage a day, or two drinks a day if they are a man under the age of 65
  • Stop smoking
  • Reducing the amount of caffeine they drink
  • Cutting their stress levels
  • The sooner they get their blood pressure under control, the better it is for their heart in both the short and long-term.
