Benefits of Regular Chiropractic Check-Ups
BOOST YOUR HEALTH THROUGH PREVENTATIVE CARE
Many people don't realize that chiropractic services go way beyond the spine. Regular check-ups with a chiropractor are vital to increasing athletic performance, eliminating pain and even preventing signs of aging. Dr. Pauline Haugen, founder of Higher Health Spine and Sport, discusses four reasons why seeing a chiropractor can assist for years to come. Psst! Higher Health’s brand-new location is now open in Bellevue and features a boutique-like atmosphere with a beverage station, roller tables, access to a rehabilitation floor, organic local products and more!
Chiropractic care offers some of the best resources for preventative health. It is much easier (and more cost efficient) to prevent a problem from happening than trying to fix it – especially if it involves potential surgery. Prevention can start with a simple visit to a chiropractor, or receiving a laser foot scan to determine any imbalances in the body that may cause pain or potential injuries.
2. Eliminate Pain Seeing a chiropractor for services such as spinal decompression or rock-blading can save thousands of dollars in medical bills, can eliminate addictive prescription pain pills and can reduce chances of needing surgery. Regular, ongoing care will help decrease pain for longer periods of time, allowing an active lifestyle without risking an ouch-factor.
3. Increase Athletic Performance
Athletes often experience effects of performance after years of playing sports, which can be treated early on or even prevented entirely through chiropractic care and assessment. Studies have shown that chiropractic care outperforms other medical options at reducing pain and restoring normal function. It can also help reduce or eliminate headaches caused from head and neck injuries, back and shoulder pain, and ankle and knee injuries. An estimated 90 percent of professional athletes routinely use chiropractic care to prevent injuries and boost performance.
Chiropractic health includes the prevention of osteoarthritis and helping patients develop and maintain firmer, tighter skin. Nutrition is a large piece of the puzzle, so we love having healthy eateries in the neighborhood like Jujubeet! We also developed Profunction, a brand new line of natural supplements made for optimum daily health. Innovative treatments also include services like cold laser therapy, massage, ergo roller therapy and personal consultations.
