Do I Need Chiropractic Treatment if I’m Not in Pain?

Chiropractic treatment focuses on disorders of the muscles, joints, bones, and nervous system and the ways these disorders affect general health. While most people seek chiropractic treatment for neck pain, back pain, joint pain, or headaches, this type of drug-free approach can also help enhance overall health and functioning. About 35 million adults and children in the United States undergo chiropractic treatment annually. 

Chiropractic treatment is based on the theory that the condition of your spine affects every system in your body. Instead of medications and surgery, chiropractic treatment uses hands-on spinal manipulation to gently move your vertebrae into proper alignment. This allows your body to heal itself from injury or repetitive stress. Since the spine influences your entire body, successful chiropractic treatment can improve other body systems the same way it encourages pain relief of an injury.

No matter what your reason for treatment, you’ll achieve the best results by working with an experienced professional chiropractor. At Pinnacle Health Chiropractic in Kirkland, Washington, Jason Ablett, DC, and the team have the knowledge and experience necessary to improve function in your musculoskeletal system.

Read on to find out how chiropractic treatment can make a difference in your overall wellness, whether you’re in pain or working to stay healthy. 

Identify hidden problems

You may have a misaligned back and not know it for years. Many muscle, ligament, and joint injuries occur after years of biomechanical dysfunction that didn’t cause pain but maybe made you more susceptible to getting hurt. A thorough chiropractic examination can identify and correct these types of dysfunctions before they lead to debilitating pain or injury. 

Perform better physically

Chiropractors specialize in facilitating proper movement. Professional athletes use chiropractic treatment to help prevent injuries, improve balance and coordination, and facilitate recovery from injuries. With chiropractic treatment, athletes gain a competitive edge in performance without drugs. Up to 90% of all world-class athletes, all teams in the National Football League, and most teams in other professional sports use chiropractic treatment.  

Treat the nerve network

The nerves that travel through and control your bodily functions originate at the spinal cord. When a vertebral subluxation occurs, the normal spinal structure is disturbed, affecting how your nervous system functions. The location of the subluxation, typically defined by an area of restricted mobility, determines the organs or systems that are affected by the misalignment. When the subluxation is corrected during a chiropractic adjustment, you may experience improvement in the organs or systems controlled by nerves in the treated area. 

Reduce stress

Chiropractic treatment can release muscle tension, a common effect of chronic stress. By adjusting the spine, your chiropractor can help your body return to a more relaxed and balanced state. Chiropractic treatment can also include advice on nutritional supplements, relaxation techniques, posture, and lifestyle changes that can help you better deal with ongoing chronic stress.
