June is Men’s Health Month – Include Chiropractic

The purpose of Men’s Health Month is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys.  Chiropractic can be an integral part of this prevention and promotion of wellness.

In short, because the body’s innate recuperative powers are affected by and integrated through the nervous system, correcting spinal abnormalities which irritate the nervous system through chiropractic can lead to a number of favorable results in patients suffering from various, seemingly non-spinal health conditions.  These conditions can include increased sense of well being and energy, enhanced tissue healing and decreased tissue inflammation.

Alarming statistics show that men’s health is at great risk.  On average, men die almost 6 years younger than women and suffer higher mortality rates for the top causes of death.  The lives of hundreds of thousands of men will continue to be threatened unless immediate action is taken to combat this growing crisis.

Research shows that:

–  men do not see physicians for a physical exam nearly as often as women

–  men are dying of the top causes of death at higher rates than women

–  men are more likely to be uninsured than women

–  approximately 30,000 men in the US die each year from prostate cancer.
