12 Ways Chiropractic Can Enrich Your Life

From the Foundation For The Advancement of Chiropractic Education

  1. Improve Your Energy
    The vital energy that runs your body comes from the brain, travels over the nerves and gives vitality and vigor to your body. Logic says that if that energy is interfered with, your body will not work at its fullest potential.
  2. Clearer Thinking, Concentration and Memory
    Your body chemistry determines your ability to think, concentrate and remember. Body chemistry is controlled by your nerve system and your nerve system works better when your spine is aligned.
  3. Less Stress
    How can getting adjusted make your job easier or cause your kids to give you less problems? In all reality, it can’t. But there is a difference between adversity and stress. Adversities are the circumstances of life. You cannot change them. Stress is the inability to handle those adversities. How well your body is working will determine to some degree how much adversity you can handle and how much stress you have in your life.
  4. Enjoy a Longer Life
    All things being equal you will live longer if you take care of yourself, barring any unforeseen trauma, of course. Taking care of yourself, in no small measure, means keeping your nerve system free of interference due to vertebral subluxations.
  5. Quality Sleep
    All sleep is not the same. Just because you get ten hours does not mean you are getting the kind of rest you need. At different times, we have all awakened refreshed, sluggish or tired from the same amount of sleep. How well your body is working will determine how much of your sleep is real sleep and not just “down time.”
  6. Greater Value From Your Exercise
    Everyone needs to exercise regularly. Some of us just do not have the energy to get up off the couch and begin a workout although that is an issue we have already addressed. Some of us have an interference in the nerve system that keeps the muscles of our body from receiving a full complement of vital life energy. It is like trying to exercise a paralyzed muscle. There is not enough energy going to those muscles. That is what happens when there is interference in the nerve system due to vertebral subluxation.
  7. More Balanced Body Chemistry
    The proper balance of your body’s chemistry is unique for you. Only the innate wisdom of your body knows exactly what it should be. People can only guess. The organs, glands and cells of the body must be working properly to produce just the right chemicals in just the right amounts at just the right time. Your nerve system is critical in the coordination of that function.
  8. More Hours in Your Day
    How can you get more than 24 hours a day from chiropractic visits? Time management will tell you that it is the efficient use of your time, not the total number of hours that is the issue. If your mind and body are working as well as they possibly can, you will be more efficient and more than make up for the time it takes to visit your chiropractor.
  9. Increased Income Earning Capacity
    If you had more energy, clearer thinking, a better ability to handle adversity, more alertness and were more efficient and physically, mentally and emotionally functioning at higher level, you could work more, work harder, get a better job or possibly a promotion or even start a business of your own.
  10. Improved Relationships
    If you are functioning a higher level and if your body chemistry is balanced you can handle adversity better and not be as affected by other people’s traits that disturb your relationships.
  11. Improve Performance
    With an improved nerve supply, all your performance levels will be elevated. A spinal adjustment will alleviate pressure on your nervous system created by a misalignment.
  12. Better Digestion
    There are many reasons why certain foods effect certain people. Usually, the cause can be traced back to the inability of the body to handle that food. This could be caused by an interference in the nerve system due to vertebral subluxation that can be addressed by a visit(s) to your chiropractor.


The bottom line is to have a happier and more fulfilled life. When you see improvement in the areas
listed above, your life will become more enjoyable. Even some of the things you do not enjoy now
will become more pleasurable and rewarding.
