Many of us only think of chiropractic treatment as something to pursue when we get injured, many of us have limited ideas about chiropractic narrowing its purposes to the region of the back and spine. However, there are an immense amount of benefits that chiropractic treatment can bring to other areas of your life. Chiropractic treatment is especially effective in treating stress and anxiety.
Chiropractic adjustments have your body feeling great and your mind firing on all cylinders. Chiropractic treatments also help promote a better night of sleep, improve the digestive system, not to mention provide drug-free pain relief.
If you're feeling stressed or anxious, this could be due to a variety of reasons. Maybe you haven't been eating well or sleeping well. Maybe you've not stayed hydrated or exercised the proper amount. If you've done all of these things, chiropractic can be an amazing supplement to any health, wellness, or self-care protocol.

Scoliosis is a disorder of the spine that causes abnormal curvature. Scoliosis occurs most often in individuals when they are experiencing their growth spurt just before puberty. Many cases can be mild and with very few symptoms while other cases of scoliosis can worsen over time and become quite disabling.
Symptoms of scoliosis include uneven shoulders and hips, a bump in the lower back, numbness or weakness in the legs, pain in the extremities, trouble with mobility, trouble standing, exhaustion, and more.
Chiropractic can help reduce pain without drug intervention, not to mention help the spine and the rest of the body communicate in a more optimized capacity. Chiropractic adjustments can also correct spinal misalignment and help improve flexibility and range of motion.
Beyond that, chiropractic treatment can also help patients achieve a more restful night of sleep, reduce depression, and improve digestion.

Headaches can happen for a variety of reasons, whether it's your spine out of line, your neck out of whack, or your diet and sleep situation. Headaches can be a symptom of poor posture -- which can occur while you drive, while you're at work, and even while you're sitting at home.

Low back pain is one of the more common back problems a person might experience over the course of their life. Acute lower back pain can last anywhere from a couple of days to a few weeks while chronic lower back pain lasts over 3 months.
Below, Barton Chiropractic Clinic goes over a few ways to avoid lower back pain in order to stay in the game and stay healthy.
Stretch it Out
Stretching before you start your day and after your day comes to an end is a great way to bookend your days and give your body the tension relief it needs to start over fresh tomorrow. Stretching is good for your back, neck, legs, and joints when done properly.
Strengthen Your Back
Do low weight exercises that engage your core muscle groups and make sure that you're doing your part to strengthen your back muscles, which help protect your spine. When you strengthen your back you'll notice more resilience, and, conversely, you'll start to feel less good when you don't work out your back.
