Learn About Our Unique Approach to Chiropractic Care
At Greater Life Chiropractic in Charlotte NC, we focus on your overall health, not just your spine!
If you are like most people, when you think of chiropractic care, you think about your spine. Relief from back pain is the main reason that most people seek chiropractic care.
In fact, good chiropractic care enhances the health of your entire body
At Greater Life Chiropractic, we consider how the human body functions as a whole. In particular, we focus on the nervous system, because it is the master control center for the body.
While you read these words, your brain is sending messages throughout your nervous system telling your heart to beat, your lungs to breathe, and your stomach to digest. The best part is, you don’t have to think about it!
Now consider this, if your nervous system is responsible for controlling all of the functions of the body, then a healthy, functioning nervous system is a crucial component of a healthy, functioning body.
On the other hand, if nerves are pinched or compressed, their messages may be cut off, which can lead to disease and dysfunction.
How can Greater Life Chiropractic improve my health?
We examine your nervous system to determine how well your body is functioning overall. We look for spinal misalignments, which can cut off vital impulses from the brain to organs and tissues, which can result in adverse health consequences.
Good chiropractic care can help improve several conditions. Here are few examples:
Once we have created a complete picture of your health and the alignment of your spine, we will create a customized corrective care plan with your specific recommendations for spinal and neurological correction.
Over the course of corrective care, your spine will ideally have improved range of motion and mechanics, which will decrease the pressure and tension in your nervous system. Through chiropractic care, we have not only helped our practice members become free of pain, but we’ve helped them achieve a life of optimum health.
We use specially designed tables for the most comfortable adjustment possible
We hear you when you say the last time you went to a chiropractor it was painful and uncomfortable!
At Greater Life Chiropractic, we use specially designed tables that absorb the force of the chiropractic adjustment. Our unique tables allow us to give you an extremely gentle and specific adjustment.
Pharmaceuticals often cover up a problem. We aim to solve it!
When people are in pain, they are often quick to turn to drugs or pharmaceuticals for relief. While pain relievers mask, or cover up the underlying injury or disease, they don’t solve the problem.
We take a different approach
We work closely with you to get to the root of your pain and your health problems.
Over the time we have been in practice, we have had many practice members who wanted to avoid prescription medications or invasive procedures. Instead, they decided to try chiropractic care first, and we were able to help them achieve optimum health.
Chiropractic care can help relieve several conditions including the following:
Because many of us sit hunched over desks and keyboards, our necks and shoulders are subjected to strain and misalignment. The result? Frequent headaches.
Spinal alignments and chiropractic adjustments can ease the stress on your neck and upper back, which can reduce the frequency and intensity of your headaches. The Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College performed a headache study on 729 people. Out of the 729, 613 received chiropractic care, and the results ranged from good to excellent.
High blood pressure cannot be cured, but it can be controlled. Don’t get us wrong, chiropractic care should not be the only thing you do to control your high blood pressure, but it can help with the problem.
Your blood pressure is monitored with two numbers, the systolic blood pressure (top number) and the diastolic blood pressure (bottom number.) High blood pressure can lead to serious health complications, such as heart attack, stroke, and heart failure.
Are you at risk for high blood pressure?
Risk factors for high blood pressure include:
- Lack of regular physical exercise
- Drinking more than a moderate amount on a regular basis
- High sodium diet
Chiropractic care is a low-impact way to help reduce high blood pressure. Researchers performed a study that demonstrated that a chiropractic adjustment lowered blood pressure similar to two different blood-pressure medications.
A total of 50 patients were used for this study. 25 of those patients received chiropractic adjustments, whereas the other 25 received a placebo technique.
Patients that received the actual treatment had their Atlas vertebra re-positioned. In contrast to the placebo patients, treated patients experienced an average 14mm drop in systolic blood pressure and an 8mm drop in diastolic blood pressure.
As with headaches, people typically reach for pharmaceuticals when they are suffering from allergies. While these medications help to relieve itchy eyes, scratchy throats and other allergy symptoms, they don’t help with the root cause of many allergies.
Allergic reactions are the result of an overactive immune system. Usually, the immune system fights pollen, dust, and bacteria.
Although, the immune system is capable of fighting harmful invaders of the human body, it can be weakened from stress and physical pain, poor diet, and lack of exercise. A strained immune system can overreact to allergens, causing an allergic reaction.
The immune system and the nervous system are closely related.
Chiropractors may not be the first people you think of when trying to relieve your allergies. However, the work they do play a great role in distressing your nervous system, which benefits your immune system. A healthy and functioning immune system can help to minimize allergic reactions.
Please don’t misunderstand this – allergies can be serious and life-threatening, and it is important to seek responsible, professional medical care. Chiropractic care can help to support a healthy nervous and immune system, which in turn, can improve your overall health and reduce your need for pharmaceutical intervention.
