Want to live longer? Chiropractic can help!
By Dr. Travis Owens: Franklin, Tennessee 100% Chiropractic A Wellness Center
One of the most profound concepts that chiropractors present is the idea that “chiropractic adds years to your life and life to your years.” There has been a great deal of research to prove that through chiropractic care, a person’s quality of life will undoubtedly improve. Whether through a decrease in pain, regained abilities, or simply a more positive outlook, chiropractic care has been linked with people living a more fulfilled and enjoyable life. Simply put, it “adds life to their years.”
However, more importantly is the other half of that old adage.
Can chiropractic really “add years to your life? “
The answer is resoundingly, “yes!”
How do we know? The truth is, the largest chiropractic research study ever conducted revealed this! The results showed that there is no maximum benefit (no limit of health benefits) from being under chiropractic care. In fact, the study showed that as long as a person stays under regular chiropractic care, they WILL CONTINUE to have improvements in their health! Additionally, areas that have more chiropractors, per capita, have a lower incidence of death from things like heart disease and cancer. This can be linked to not only the benefit of direct chiropractic care, but also to the healthy change in lifestyle that most patients explore.
Due to the vast improvements in health for those individuals and families that experience regular chiropractic care, the overall costs of healthcare for that family drastically decreases. By focusing on maintaining optimal health rather than relying on emergency medicine and hospital visits to remedy a preventable issue, a typical family will spend less over the course of their lives due to the decreased need for medical intervention, prescription drugs, and surgery.
