When you walk out of a chiropractor’s office, you feel ten feet tall, right? I love the feeling after getting my spine adjusted. It just seems to work out all the kinks. All of my pains and aches just seem to go away. There is nothing like the feeling.
I chronically get stiffness in my back, so I am a regular visitor at my local chiropractor’s office. They know me by name there and know exactly what kind of manipulation I need to set me right again.
While it has worked wonders for my stiff back, as well as the kinks in my neck, I have found another benefit that I was unaware of before – better skin!
How a Spinal Adjustment Helps Your Skin
It wasn’t something that I noticed at first. I tend to get acne, as well as dry skin. It particularly flares up when the seasons change. These are skin issues that I have always dealt with and accepted to be my norm. No matter what kinds of skin care products I tried, the issues never subsided. Or, if they did, the respite was short and my skin went back to the same old issues in no time.
After a few visits to my chiropractor, I began to notice that I had much clearer skin. I tried to retrace my steps and see if I had changed anything. My skin care routine, my diet, my activity level, stress level… all of that had remained the same. The only thing that I could think of that was different, that also coincided with my skin improving, was my regular spinal adjustments.
I asked my chiro (who can be found here: https://www.myersfamilychiro.com) about this and he knew full well that it was his manipulation of my spine that was leading to the improved health of my skin. I was skeptical at the beginning, but the more he explained it, the more sense it made to me.
You see, when you get your spine adjusted, you are taking the pinches out of all the nerves that connect to the spinal cord. This opens up the flow of blood, oxygen, and nutrients throughout your body. In addition, it opens up neurotransmitters, allowing your brain to more efficiently send signals around your body.
With all these pathways opened up and operating at full efficiency, all processes of the body are working at a peak level. This brings the flow of moisture to your skin, as well as oxidates the skin by pushing dirt and grime out of your pores. From the inside out, your skin becomes so much healthier.
I have to say that it wasn’t a benefit I thought of initially, and not what I intended to get out of my appointments, but it has been an absolutely wonderful fringe benefit. Having better skin starts with knowing all the ways you can improve its health. If you are dealing with skin issues and can’t seem to find products that remedy the issue, maybe it is time you pay your chiropractor a visit! It certainly has worked for me!
