Chiropractic care is a form of alternative treatment that involves massage, physical therapy and spinal adjustments to help detox and restore the body to balance. As a result of prolonged drug and alcohol use, harmful toxins remain accumulated within the body, putting increased stress on the liver to remove and keep the body operational. Allowed to exist over long periods of time, these toxic substances and free radicals compromise health, introducing disease and various health complications that can impede long term addiction recovery.
Through the manipulation of the body’s soft tissues, the flow of bile is stimulated throughout the body, removing blockages and initiating the natural detox process. Chiropractic spinal adjustments have the ability to realign neurotransmitters within the brain, resetting the bio-chemicals that govern the brain’s messaging. It is these exact bio-chemical messages that the brain sends to our bodies which control the feelings of cravings. When these neurotransmitters are reset, the brain can begin to normalize and help offset the urges to relapse.
