Why Regular Chiropractic Adjustments Are As Important As Dental Exams

Share

Regular preventative care and maintenance are integral to good health. The better you treat your body, the better it will treat you. Unfortunately, you can’t always see or know when there is a problem, and regular check-ups can help you stay ahead of potential health problems that could significantly impact your quality of life. However, many people only see their chiropractor when they have a problem like pain or immobility. What they don’t realize is that they may have prevented the issue had they been undergoing regular chiropractic adjustments.

Just as they can prevent serious dental issues when they undergo regular dental check-ups.

The Importance of Regular Dental Exams

Most people get regular dental exams each year without know all of the reasons why it is so important. Dental care is more than just caring for teeth; it is a crucial part of caring for your health.

Dental visits help you maintain healthy teeth and gums. Gum disease and poor dental health have been linked to a variety of health issues, including heart disease. Researchers have drawn a direct line between tooth loss and heart disease. What’s more, regular oral exams and teeth cleaning can lead to the detection of early-stage medical conditions, some of which can be life-threatening which include:

  • Leukemia
  • Heart disease
  • Oral cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney disease
  • Pancreatic cancer

Studies show that these and other systemic diseases have some oral manifestation such as dry mouth, swollen gums, excessive gum problems, and mouth ulcers.

In the long run, good oral care that includes regular dental exams can save you a lot of time and money because you will catch many problems before they get out of hand and can incur significant expense.

The Importance of Regular Chiropractic Adjustments

Just like regular dental care can help you stay healthy, regular chiropractic can also be very beneficial to your health. Chiropractors treat so much more than just pain!

Regular chiropractic adjustments help to keep the body in balance which allows the organs to function more efficiently. What’s more, regular chiropractic treatments put you in frequent, close contact with a health professional who can spot potential problems or the early stages of chronic diseases.

The benefits extend beyond that though. Regular chiropractic care helps you stay flexible and mobile which prevents many conditions that are related to aging. It also naturally treats a myriad of health conditions including:

  • Back pain
  • Blood pressure
  • Arthritis
  • Headaches
  • Joint pain
  • Ear infections
  • Asthma
  • Neck pain
  • Scoliosis

It also improves organ function and can help you avoid surgery and provides a natural, healthy alternative to medications that can be addictive and have harmful side effects.

Another added benefit of chiropractic care is the whole-body approach to wellness. Your chiropractor will look at your lifestyle, habits, diet, and exercise regimen and recommend changes and modifications that will help you live a healthier, fuller life.

Sure, they are there to help when you have a problem such as pain, but, like your dentist, they can also be the front line to better health care decisions and a healthier you. The natural approach that chiropractors take to healthcare also means that they typically see issues from a different perspective and may pick up on clues that your medical doctor might miss.

So, while you are scheduling your next dental check-up, make it a point to visit your chiropractor as well and talk to him or her about creating a plan for regular chiropractic adjustments. Your body will thank you, and you will find that you are healthier for it.
