If you landed on this page, you might be considering a visit to a chiropractor. There are many reasons why adding chiropractic care to your wellness routine is essential. Generally speaking, chiropractic care can help reduce pain and correct the body’s alignment and overall physical function1.
At Denver Integrated Spine Center, we do our best to remain true to our name– we use an integrative approach to patient care and injury recovery treatment.
What does integrative mean?
It means we do not look at our patients’ treatment from a single provider’s perspective. We want you to feel better in the long term. We address these issues through a combination of chiropractic care, physical therapy, and massage therapy.
Through our years of treating a variety of injuries, chronic pain, and car accident cases, we have derived a list of the top 5 reasons you should consider visiting a chiropractor:
- You work long hours from a desk.
- You experience sciatica (ache and pain in your leg).
- You endure migraines or frequent headaches.
- You have recently been in an accident.
- You suffer from lower back pain.
The top 5 reasons to visit a chiropractor
You work long hours sitting at a desk.
Your body isn’t designed to remain in the same seated position for countless hours per week. The truth is, many people are required to do such to make a living.
As technology advances, we are required to be seated, on a device, for more and more hours of our week. Sitting for long hours each day creates fatigue and strain on our joints. To combat this, a chiropractor will help.
A weekly visit to a chiropractor will help you reduce joint discomfort by aligning your spine and adjusting your joints back to their intended and ideal state of function.
You experience sciatica.
Those same people who experience discomfort from sitting all day may be experiencing sciatica. The causes of sciatica range and vary between individuals.
Sciatica2 is the pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which branches from your lower back through your hips, buttocks, and down each leg.
To reduce this radiating discomfort, a chiropractor uses special techniques and treatments to reduce inflammation and tension in the nerve origin’s surrounding areas. As a result, you will experience less and less discomfort long-term while every visit to a chiropractor.

You endure migraines or frequent headaches.
Things that may be causing your migraines or frequent headaches:
- Always looking down at a device or laptop
- Sleeping with the wrong pillow type or size
- Clenching your jaw while sleeping
Using a targeted approach, we adjust your spine’s alignment to alleviate stress on your nervous system. When you are looking down or putting your neck in a compromised position for long periods, the muscles surrounding your spine engage, protecting your brainstem. This prolonged tension is the culprit to some of your worst headaches. A chiropractic visit will help reduce this tension, realign your spine, and reduce your headache pain.
