Celebrities Using Chiropractic: Stars Know How to Treat Compressed DiscsCelebrities have been using chiropractic care for decades to address their own health concerns, as well as preventative care for joint, muscle and spinal injuries. With all their glowing testimonials, should you be considering the care of a quality Duncanville chiropractor as well? There’s a good chance you should!

These days, everyone knows that chiropractic care can be used to alleviate back pain and neck pain, and can also help reduce muscle strain caused by spinal misalignment. Yet many do not know that the overall health benefits of chiropractic care are also plentiful. More and more, everyday people and celebrities alike are turning to chiropractic care for health issues that go far beyond neck, or back pain.

As spinal adjustments help to alleviate the strain put on nerves throughout your body, it follows that all involved nerves are beneficially impacted from spinal manipulation, allowing them to function properly at whatever task they are designated to. Whether that be increasing your immune system, and keeping you healthier, or sending signals to your glands to produce hormones necessary for fertility–chiropractic care is indeed, a friend to the nervous system and therefore, your overall body and health.

Chiropractic care can also help alleviate pain and symptoms that might otherwise become reasons for surgery according to traditional Western medicine. Each year alone, Americans undergo tens of thousands of surgeries that are unnecessary. According to a 2013 USA Today report, 17% of spinal fusions, or back surgeries preformed in the US were done without any clear indication of their necessity. Yet, there is no denying that traditional medicine typically seeks a surgical solution for pain, or injuries, that could be treated alternatively (through the care of a chiropractor), without painful surgeries, or the risk of infection and other life changing complications that come with surgery.

Over the years, celebrities using chiropractic have sung its praises. Actress and talk show host Kelly Ripa has been seen receiving treatment on air. Other celebrities, such as Denzel Washington, Clint Eastwood, Shirley Maclaine, Jerry Seinfeld, and Sylvester Stallone, have all been finding relief through chiropractic care and speaking positively about it for decades.

Yet, it’s not just actors that are true believers in the many health benefits of chiropractic care. Professional athletes are often extremely supportive of the chiropractic care they receive, both to treat injuries and pain, and to avoid them. During his days as Mr. Universe, Arnold Schwarzenegger was quoted as saying, “Bodybuilders and fitness people have been using chiropractic very extensively in order to stay healthy and fit. I found it was better to go to a chiropractor before you get injured. We are a perfect team–the world of fitness and the world of chiropractors.” Likewise, 14 time PGA championship golfer, Tiger Woods, has stated that “lifting weights and seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis” helped make him a better golfer.
