Put Your Health First in the New Year with Chiropractic Care

The new year is the perfect time to reflect on your lifestyle and make a few changes to improve your health. Adding chiropractic treatments to your healthy living regimen can help you avoid illnesses and injuries or manage the symptoms of chronic conditions. More than just a treatment for aches and pains, chiropractic care offers a natural way to stay healthy.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help You

Chiropractors treat subluxations, spinal misalignments that not only cause pain and stiffness but also press on the nerves in your spinal column.

Your nervous system plays an important role in your health. Nerves travel to every part of your body and send and receive signals from your brain and spinal cord. If any part of the nerve signal transmission process is disrupted, bodily systems and functions can be affected.

Fortunately, your chiropractor can help you protect your health with treatments that correct subluxations and relax your muscles and joints. Benefits of chiropractic care include:

  • Fewer Illnesses: Chiropractic treatments may reduce the number of colds and illnesses you experience this year. Subluxations can affect your ability to produce antibodies, proteins that kill bacteria and viruses. Correcting subluxations is an easy way to boost your immune system and avoid illnesses.
  • No More Indigestion: Your nervous system controls the passage of food through each part of your gastrointestinal system. If food lingers too long in one area or passes through another part of your digestive system too quickly, you may experience indigestion, heartburn, gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation or other unpleasant symptoms. Regular chiropractic treatments can help prevent or minimize digestive problems.
  • Better Sleep: Insomnia may seem like a minor complaint, yet poor sleep can affect every aspect of your health. In fact, sleep issues may increase your risk of stroke, diabetes, and heart and kidney disease, according to the National Heart, Blood and Lung Institute. Chiropractic care eases stress, muscle tension, and pain, helping you get a restful night's sleep.
  • Lower Blood Pressure: Correcting subluxations in your neck may be beneficial to your blood pressure levels. Patients with high blood pressure who had neck subluxations experienced a significant decrease in blood pressure after receiving spinal manipulation treatment during a Chicago research study. Blood pressure readings continued to be lower even eight weeks after treatment.
  • Less Spine Pain: Years of wear and tear may affect your spine as you grow older, causing arthritis, disc problems, spinal stenosis, and other conditions. Chiropractic treatment improves joint and muscle movement, enhances range of motion, and decreases pressure on the nerves that can cause pain. Treatment can also prevent scar tissue and adhesions from forming and improve your balance, helping you avoid falls.
  • Improved Control of Chronic Health Conditions: Scheduling regular visits to the chiropractor may help reduce the number of migraines you get or decrease fibromyalgia symptoms.
  • Improved Breathing: Good nerve health is also essential for optimum lung function. When your spinal column is properly aligned, it may be easier to take deep breaths. Lung inflammation and asthma symptoms may also decrease.
  • Less Stress and More Energy: It's difficult to relax when your muscles are tight and painful. Spinal manipulation, massage, ultrasound therapy, and other chiropractic treatments ease your pain and may help lower your stress level. Fatigue caused by mild to severe chronic pain may stop you from enjoying life and participating in your favorite activities. Once your pain is eliminated or reduced, you just may discover that your energy level rebounds.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have benefitted tremendously from the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. Not only has the adjustments helped alleviate my stiffness and aches, but it has helped me have more energy and just feel more balanced over all. A few months ago, I was able to resume a favorite hobby of mine: golf. Due to my previous pain, I never thought that’d be possible."
    Back Pain
  • "I was very impressed with the chiropractic care I received from Dr. Anderson. I had received chiropractic in the past for my neck pain, but not to this level of care. After only a few sessions, my symptoms began to disappear, especially my neck pain, and I know I would not have been able to perform to my everyday work functions without the treatment I received."
    Neck Pain
  • "May says, Dr. Luke is the Best Chiropractor Doctor, I have gone to in all my life. Before seeing Dr. Luke, I used to receive massages and I took Advil daily. I had symptoms of lower back pain, headaches, and pain in my abdomen. Dr. Luke and his style of Chiropractic relieved my headaches and lower back pain; Chiropractic has made me feel much better since I started adjustments with Dr. Luke. Event the pain in my abdomen is gone. I never thought another Chiropractor would be beneficial but I found out that Dr. Luke is the Best that there is. He does make a huge difference and would recommend Dr. Luke to everyone. Thank You, Dr. Luke!"

  • "I am a professional landscaper constantly using my back and body my work is very physical. With severe back pain especially in my lower back area. I would tell anyone the importance of proper alignment, which leads to a good physical body. Your body needs correction and you must take the steps to correct your problem. Whoever hesitates to correct the body's misalignment will lead to malfunctioning and a crippled body. Dr. Luke adjusted my body to have correct alignment. I'm back to work and good to go. Mahalo, Dr. Luke!"

  • "Awesome!!! Helped both my husband and I. First it was my husband- his shoulder would lock up and was stiff and painful. 1st treatment with Cold Therapy/adjustments his shoulder unlocked!!! no more pain or stiffness.
    Then recently I injured my knee, I was on pain medicine and told by my doctor I would need surgery to fix this. I ended up in Dr. Luke's office and have already felt tremendous relief. I mustered up the courage and one day got my back and neck adjusted as well. OMG!!! I am truly enjoying my smooth turning neck and less lower back stiffness due to the adjustments, Don’t be scared just do it !!! And feel great.
    Both my husband n I continue our visits with Dr. Luke . We enjoy the easy going atmosphere . Dr.Luke will teach you how to care for your specific condition . Come and check it out !!! You will be amazed and most happy that you did.."
