We work hard every day to exercise, eat right, and avoid injury.  However we can’t be perfect and just by going through our day our bodies will encounter stress.  Stress over time can damage our bodies.  What if there was something you do to reduce that damage.  A new study shows that Chiropractic can do just that.


Our bodies encounter physical, chemical and mental stress on a daily basis.  These encounters can create free radicals which damage our bodies over time.   Anti-Oxidants protect against free radical damage.  Anti-oxidants are found in things we eat and drink like fruits and vegetables. However our bodies can also produce anti-oxidants to protect ourselves.


A ground breaking new study examined whether Chiropractic care had an effect on Anti-oxidant levels in the body.   Patients who were suffering from back or neck pain received Chiropractic care for 5 weeks.  Measurements of anti-oxidants were taken before, during, and after the treatment period.  The study demonstrated that the patients had increased anti-oxidant levels even after Chiropractic care was no longer received.


If you are looking for a safe, natural and effective way to stay healthy, consider Chiropractic.  Chiropractic care is part of a healthy lifestyle and has many benefits including; decreasing stress hormones, improving immune function and boosting anti-oxidant levels.  Call today for a no charge consultation, 616-419-4996.
