Adjusting to a New Year: Why Chiropractic Care Should Be On Your List of Resolutions!

How Chiropractic Care Will Help You Reach Your 2022 Health Goals

Many people set health goals in the new year. We all want to reduce pain and anxiety, lose weight, exercise more and sleep better. As an all-natural therapy and wellness option, chiropractic care is an ideal way to help you reach your 2022 health goals.


The goal of chiropractic treatment is to align your spine properly so the body can heal itself. Vertebrae get out of alignment during exercising, playing sports and everyday activities like sleeping, walking, and sitting at a desk for hours on end. Many of the pains associated with back and neck discomfort are a result of excessive stress and spinal misalignment.

Misalignments, also known as subluxations, can be painful when the misalignment impinges on nerves or causes muscles to work extra to compensate. Subluxations also prevent the free flow of information from the body to the brain and vice versa. By aligning the spine, your chiropractor is relieving pain naturally and encouraging your body to heal itself. When people are hurt, they often take pain medications that can have harsh side effects and only mask the pain. Chiropractic care works to fix the problem.

Let’s start with feeling better physically. Many people suffer from chronic pain – back pain, headaches, joint pain and neck pain. One of the main goals of chiropractic care is to reduce pain naturally. By aligning your spine and joints, chiropractors often reduce or eliminate back and neck pain, joint pain and headaches. When you don’t hurt as much, you can – and want to – exercise more. Being pain-free goes a long way toward meeting your New Year’s resolution of starting a fitness routine. In addition, chiropractic treatment is a great preventative technique to help you avoid injury while exercising or playing sports.

How about that New Year’s resolution to lose weight? It’s simple: If you hurt less and exercise more, you are more likely to lose weight. When your nervous system isn’t functioning properly because of misalignments, it is more difficult for your brain to communicate with your body and vice versa which can affect how well your body systems function, including metabolism.

If your resolutions include being more fiscally responsible and saving money, choose chiropractic! Going to the chiropractor doesn’t mean you’ll never need prescription medications, but many patients have been able to resolve issues through chiropractic treatments without the need for prescriptions. By keeping your

body functioning at its best, chiropractic treatment often prevents people from needing expensive surgeries with lots of downtime, pain and lost wages.

Many New Year’s resolutions include improved mental health. People want to prevent or better control anxiety and depression. Chiropractic treatments promote sleep, relieve tension in your muscles and encourage your body to function better and relax by increasing your output of “happy hormones” such as cortisol and oxytocin.

Regular chiropractic treatment keeps your body working efficiently. If your 2022 health goals include exercising more, reducing anxiety and sleeping better, chiropractic treatment can set you up for success. With regular treatments, you can feel better, exercise more, play harder and rest better afterward.
