Throughout your daily life, it is both natural and inevitable that your body will store and build up a certain amount of toxins. Toxins are not poisons, but with too many toxins in the body, our ability to heal and function normally can be negatively impacted.
It’s easy to understand that toxins can build up in the digestive system, skin, organs, and other areas that we tend to associate with detoxification. But toxins also tend to build up in our joints and muscles as well. Toxins that build up inside and around the joints can generate pain symptoms, stiffness, and other unpleasant effects.
When this happens, people sometimes panic or assume that they have contracted the flu. It is quite normal for toxins to be released from the joints and muscles after a chiropractic adjustment. When this happens, the body may respond with inflammation. This is a normal and healthy reaction to the release of toxins.
How Chiropractic Detox Can Help
Our chiropractor at Back on Track Chiropractic can help prepare you for the detoxifying effects of a chiropractic adjustment. Using specialized chiropractic techniques, our professionals can help to optimize the detoxifying benefits of the adjustments.
To prepare patients for a chiropractic detox, we will meet the patient beforehand and discuss such things as diet, fluid and water intake, and other activities that will help to prepare the body for the detox. Many natural, food-based products will help the body to eliminate released toxins and minimize the feeling of illness that can follow.
In certain cases of chronic pain, arthritic, or arthritis-like conditions; a detox adjustment can have enormous beneficial effects on pain levels, flexibility, and even energy levels. Our chiropractor will review your medical history, ask you about your diet, exercise habits, working conditions, and family history to decide whether a detoxification chiropractic treatment is right for you.
