A published health study compared the health outcomes of two random yet similar groups of people. One group saw a medical doctor as their Primary Care Provider (PCP) while the other group saw a Chiropractor as their PCP.
What were the results?
Clinical and cost utilization based on 70,274 member-months over 7 years demonstrated decreases of 60.2% in hospital admissions, 59.0% less hospital days, 62.0% less outpatient surgeries and procedures, and 85% less pharmaceutical costs when compared with conventional medicine.
These findings are amazing!
Chiropractic Care Offers Unmatched Care
To me, no matter how much a skeptic wants to discount the value of this study, the results should open up the eyes of anyone who sees it. Other studies have analyzed the most important measurements: how the recipients perceive the quality of their care. It has been revealed over and over again that the quality of life that Chiropractic care helps to promote is unmatched by any other form of healing.
Based on the evidence, spinal adjustive care for the maximum expression of health is as necessary to families as eating well or getting appropriate exercise. In addition to long-term health outcomes, it is common for patients receiving chiropractic care to also experience:
- better sleep
- improved breathing
- increased digestion
- and more energy directly related to chiropractic adjustments.
Both children and adults can experience these benefits within twenty-four hours of their first adjustment. Unlike placebo effects originating from pharmaceutical drugs, the health benefits of chiropractic care develop subtly and naturally by changing the function of the nervous system.
Why Do Patients Experience Positive Changes After an Adjustment?
Science and research support how and why these positive health changes occur after a spinal adjustment. Science and research prove that the benefits of an adjustment go well beyond neck and back pain relief.
A Chiropractic Adjustment Directly Improves Brain Function
The brain regulates all body functions and subsequently empowers all aspects of human performance.
Chiropractic Adjustments Positively Influence Breathing and Lung Health
One big improvement noted by millions of chiropractic patients each week stems from a positive influence on breathing and lung health. Research from a medical journal titled Brain Research Bulletin found a connection between the alignment of the upper neck vertebrae and breathing.
Stimulation of small neurons located in the muscles, joints, discs, and ligaments in the upper neck creates positive changes in the diaphragm, lungs, and blood vessels. This significant research shows why any child or adult with lung or breathing troubles will benefit from a spine and nervous system evaluation by a chiropractor.
Chiropractic Improves Organ Health
Chiropractors specialize in finding subluxations, a misaligned or improperly moving spinal bone. A gentle force applied to the vertebra in a specific direction to promote movement and correction of the spinal malposition corrects the subluxation and immediately improves bodily function. Scientists refer to this as a stimulation of the small neurons located in and around the spine. Chiropractors call the action an adjustment intended to remove nervous system interference. The most recent studies encompassing the past 30 years provide proof of the unique role that chiropractic plays in providing healthcare and influencing the health and function of all organs.
People Experience Autonomic Nervous System Benefits
People all over the world experience autonomic nervous system benefits through specific Chiropractic care each week. Improved autonomic functions include blood pressure, digestion, immunity, and fertility. The intimate relationship between the spine and the central nervous system directly influences every system within the body. These connections clearly link the role of the human spine to the function of the brain.
The improved function of the body directly related to Chiropractic adjustments serves as evidence explaining why patients have experienced improvements in breathing and lung-related symptoms or conditions.
Chiropractic provides a unique approach to healthcare for children and adults to get well and stay well without the use of drugs or surgery.
