September 18 is a special date for all health and wellness lovers, as it is celebrated as Chiropractic Day.

This medical discipline, which still needs to continue to be popularized, plays a crucial role in relieving pain, improving quality of life and maintaining spinal health. 

It is a different perspective on the art of healing.

120 years ago, this day marked the beginning of a discipline that changed the lives of millions of people who today have been healed and can claim to have a better quality of life with the help of doctors of chiropractic.

Sometimes, surgeries and medications cannot cure everything. Sometimes, the human body requires a multidisciplinary cure. 

What is Chiropractic and why is it important?

Chiropractic is a medical discipline that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. Chiropractors use manual techniques to adjust and align the spine, which can eliminate pain, improve mobility and promote overall wellness.

Key Benefits of Chiropractic

  • Eliminates pain: Chiropractic is effective for the elimination or relief of pain in the back, neck, joints and more, always without the use of medication.

  • Improves posture: Chiropractic adjustments can help correct posture problems, which can prevent future pain and injury.

  • Improves nervous system function: Chiropractic adjustments applied to the spine can relieve pressure on the nerves, which improves communication between the brain and body.

  • Improves quality of life: Chiropractic not only relieves pain, but also promotes an overall state of well-being, allowing you to enjoy life to the fullest.

How to keep your spine healthy

  • Maintain good posture: Pay attention to your posture while working, walking and sitting. Avoid hunching your shoulders and make sure your back is straight.

  • Exercise regularly: Strengthening the muscles surrounding your spine can help keep it stable and healthy.

  • Ergonomics at work: Make sure your workspace is set up ergonomically to avoid unnecessary strain on your back and neck.

  • Take care of your mattress and pillow: A quality mattress and pillow can make a difference in the health of your back.

  • Listen to your body: If you feel pain or discomfort in your back, don’t ignore it. Consult a chiropractor for guidance and treatment.
