Health Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care is not just for those patients who have been in an accident or have injured themselves. Even those that have few, if any, health problems can benefit from care. Life’s daily stressors add up and the negative affect they have on the human body is great. The chemicals that are released during a stressful event impact the central nervous system in many harmful ways including muscle tension, aches, pains and headaches. Wellness Unlimited can restore and maintain balance in the nervous system within your body, leaving you better prepared to live life to the fullest and handle other situations as they arise. The human brain communicates through the body’s nervous system, sending messages through our spinal column to our muscles and organs. Routine chiropractic care is vital to maintaining this communication system and has a significant impact on your overall wellness. Workers, athletes, weekend warriors or anyone that performs a physical task can benefit from chiropractic visits. Regular adjustments may help maintain function of the body and further allow the high level of activity that we strive for.

The word “chiropractic” comes from the Greek words meaning “done by hand.” Chiropractic is a conservative approach to health restoration, maintenance, and disease resistance. By choice, Chiropractors do not use drugs or surgery. Chiropractic believes that drugs or surgery may be necessary at times but prefers a non-invasive approach because invasive treatments present limitations and risks.
An adjustment is the specific manipulation of a vertebrae or extremity joint, which have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function properly. This can lead to pain and over-used muscles which result in scar tissue accumulation. This causes the muscles to become shorter and weaker. Scar tissue also creates tendonitis by placing tension on tendons. Nerve entrapment, reduced range of motion, loss of strength, and pain are some of the symptoms you may recognize. At Wellness Unlimited we utilize the adjustment along with physical rehabilitation to realign the bone and break down trigger points and scar tissue which allow the joint to function properly.
