3 reasons you should visit a chiropractor

History of chiropractors

The beginning of modern-day chiropractors did not start too far from our home town, of Omaha.  Chiropractic care started in our neighboring state, Iowa, by a man named Daniel David Palmer. Palmer began to study chiropractic care after discovering that there were was no scientific data on manipulation that had been happening for thousands of years.

Palmer is credited for developing chiropractic care. He continued to prove and study chiropractic care as the years went on. Palmer later founded the school Palmer School of Cure, now known as Palmer College of Chiropractic, located in Davenport, Iowa. This school is still running today allowing students to develop the needed skills to become a successful chiropractor.

A chiropractor should not be someone you visit when you have an injury or back pains. Incorporating a chiropractor visit once a month could aid your health. Here are just a few reasons you should visit your chiropractor more often.

A chiropractor can help you sleep.

Tossing and turning once in a while is normal, but when it starts to occur every night, it might be a sign there is something more happening. In a recent consumer report, it is estimated that 27 percent of adults in America struggle sleeping most of the nights. You could develop insomnia with lack of sleep. Insomnia is caused by stress, anxiety or depression.

All that stress could be building up and preventing you from sleeping. Luckily chiropractors can help you sleep soundly. Chiropractors focus on target points to stimulate your nervous system to relax. Relaxation can be accomplished by several different services like massage therapy, spinal manipulation or extreme manipulation.

A chiropractor can improve your posture.

Your posture can affected by lots of things like sitting in a desk all day or by the constant pushing and pulling things at work.  Good posture will keep your bones, joints and muscles correctly aligned, this will decrease the chances of arthritis or joint pain in the future.

A chiropractor can help with your headaches.

If you are like every other human on this planet than you probably suffer from a headache once in a while. However, for some headaches do not go away after a pill or quick nap. If your headaches do not go away and keep reoccurring, it could be time to visit a chiropractor. A chiropractor can help you find the root of your headache problem. They can find out if the problem is a neck, spine or back problem and provide the correct procedures to relieve the constant headaches. Alternatively, some chiropractors, like us, can even perform acupuncture to alleviate headache pain.

Visiting a chiropractor should not be scary! It should be a pleasurable experience in your journey to a healthy lifestyle. At Wisniewski Chiropractic, we over an array of services customized to the recovery journey you prefer, contact us today to get an appointment scheduled!
