Chiropractic care for addiction recovery is a unique therapeutic approach that addresses physical imbalances within the body to promote overall health and well-being.
Traditional methods of addiction treatment often focus on one-on-one or group sessions combined with evidence-based therapies that have shown to be effective for recovery.
There is a growing recognition of the importance of complementing traditional methods with holistic approaches to improve healing of the mind, body, and soul.
Chiropractic care is one such holistic approach that we offer our residents at Summit Malibu to enhance physical healing as a way to support mental health and addiction recovery.
What is Chiropractic Care?
Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment method to correct or improve the body’s structure, particularly the spine, and heighten functionality.
Chiropractors use manual adjustments and other techniques to balance the spine and align the musculoskeletal system, which can enhance the body’s ability to heal itself and improve overall health.
Subluxations, or spinal misalignments, can cause pain, inflammation, and other issues within the central nervous system.
Correcting these issues is a main goal of chiropractic care that will restore proper functioning of the musculoskeletal and central nervous systems. In turn, this can improve both physical and mental health.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Addiction Recovery
- Reduces Physical Stress
Addiction takes a toll on the body, which leads to physical stress and tension. Chiropractic adjustments help relieve muscle tension, improve circulation, promote relaxation, and reduce the physical stress on the body.
- Restores Central Nervous System Function
The central nervous system plays a vital role in all forms of health and recovery. Chiropractic adjustments optimize the central nervous system by ensuring proper alignment of the spine and reducing nerve interference.
This has shown to improve the body’s ability to regulate mood, emotions, and stress, which are all factors in improving mental health and recovery.
- Supports Detoxification
Chiropractic care can support the body’s natural detoxification processes by improving spinal alignment.
Spinal adjustments can improve the proper functioning of the organs, including the liver and kidneys, which play a vital role in eliminating toxins from the body.
- Enhances Mental Clarity
Chiropractic care can help improve mental clarity and focus by optimizing brain function.
Proper spinal alignment promotes healthy blood flow to the brain and central nervous system, providing the necessary nutrients and oxygen for optimal cognitive functioning.
- Relieves Pain and Discomfort
Many individuals struggling with addiction also experience pain and discomfort, either as a result of drug and alcohol use or when experiencing withdrawal symptoms.
Chiropractic adjustments can alleviate pain by reducing inflammation, restoring joint mobility, and releasing endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers.
- Boosts Mood and Emotions
Chiropractic care has shown to have a positive impact on mood and emotional well-being.
By correcting spinal misalignments, chiropractors help balance the body’s neurochemicals, including serotonin and dopamine, which play a significant role in regulating mood and emotions.
- Enhances Sleep Quality
Quality sleep is necessary for physical and mental health, as well as addiction recovery. Chiropractic care can improve sleep quality by addressing underlying physical issues that may disrupt healthy sleep patterns.
By reducing pain, tension, and nervous system interference, chiropractic adjustments promote better sleep, and aid in the recovery process.
- Improves Overall Well-being
Addiction recovery is not just about overcoming drug and alcohol use, but also about rebuilding and restoring overall well-being.
Chiropractic care takes a holistic approach to physical and mental health, and healing the mind, body, and soul.
By promoting physical, mental, and emotional well-being, chiropractic care supports individuals on their long-term recovery journey.
