Another research study links magnesium levels to migraine headache.
Typically the word “auto injury” conjures images of whiplash, neck pain, or head injury. But jaw pain from temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) is another common auto injury. TMDs (also called TMJ after the temporomandibular joint) can be caused by clenching, grinding, arthritis, dislocation, whiplash or injury to the cervical spine or jaw.
New research demonstrates how chiropractic care can treat jaw pain naturally. In a recent study, patients receiving gentle chiropractic care were able to perform normal jaw movements with less pain, unlike patients not under chiropractic care. Combining chiropractic with patient education and at-home exercises prolonged these substantial improvements for at least a year. Read more about this study here.
It’s well-known that chiropractic can help athletes heal from injuries, but did you know it can also enhance athletic performance?
In a new study, researchers worked with 18 professional judo athletes from Brazil. They performed chiropractic adjustments on half of the athletes, and a sham treatment on the other half. The researchers then monitored the athletes’ grip strength throughout the study.
Despite the fact that both groups maintained their regular training schedules, the chiropractic group had substantially better outcomes. This study is more evidence that chiropractic improves nervous system functioning, which in turn strengthens muscles.
By keeping your nervous system working efficiently, chiropractic can provide more than just injury recovery; it can prevent injuries, enhance peak performance, and help you achieve optimal wellness.
Fortunately, you don’t have to be a professional athlete to benefit from chiropractic; contact a chiropractor near you to learn more.
This is exciting new research that shows that chiropractic is more than just a great way to treat back pain. Chiropractic has direct effects on the central nervous system and, according to these two studies, gives a boost to the immune system, too.
