Millions of people worldwide have experienced the incredible benefits of chiropractic adjustments on their bodies.

There are a lot of misconceptions about chiropractic care, despite the popularity, including how it works and how chiropractors are trained.
The Benefits of Chiropractic Adjustments
1. Lower back and neck pain
There have been a number of studies involving chiropractic adjustments and back pain. One such study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that patients with chronic lower back pain who were treated by chiropractors showed a greater improvement and satisfaction just one month following treatment compared to other patients who were treated by family physicians.

2. Headaches (Tension & Migraine)
Second only to back pain, tension headaches and migraines are one of the most common reasons for someone to seek out getting a chiropractic adjustment. Compared to most medical treatments, few things can naturally induce headache relief like chiropractic adjustments, without the risks of taking drugs long term which has negative effects on the body.
In 2011 a review was published in the journal, Explore, which included a review of 26 articles which found that chiropractic adjustments help to greatly reduce colic symptoms. The authors of the review stated ‘Our review revealed that chiropractic care is a viable alternative to the care of infantile colic and congruent with evidence-based practice, particularly when one considers that medical care options are no better than placebo or have been associated with adverse events.’

4. Ear infections and acid reflux
There have been few randomized controls conducted which describe clinical effects of chiropractic adjustments on children, with may case studies documenting that children suffering from ailments including ear infections or acid reflux, experienced complete to near complete resolution after just a few visits to a chiropractor.
5. Blood pressure
In 2007 the world expert on hypertension, George Bakris, published a study with a team of researchers in the Human Journal Of Hypertension, showing that one chiropractic adjustment had the same effect as two drugs for lowering blood pressure. There have been other studies which show similar findings with patients who have hypertension, and their blood pressure levels returned to normal after adjustments.
6. Surgery prevention
Adjustments have long been used as a natural method for relieving back pain and preventing back surgery. A study published in the Journal of American Medical Association suggested that people who suffer from lower back pain try chiropractic adjustments before resorting to surgery.
