Could a happier relationship be a result of your patients' next chiropractic visit? According to Shape magazine, chiropractic care not only helps ease back pain but can often have an unintended side effect: improving your patients' sex lives. According to the article, as a chiropractor corrects subluxations, nerve and blood flow improves; upper cervical and neck work can remove blockages, allowing estrogen, progesterone and other hormones to be released; and chiropractice work over all simply gives you muscles more range of motion.
Most people don't go to a chiropractor for a better sex life, but that extra benefits is a pretty happy accident. “People come in with back pain, but after adjustments, they come back and tell me their sex life is so much better,” says Jason Helfrich, co-founder and CEO of 100% Chiropractic. “It’s no surprise to us—it’s amazing what the body will do when you take away the pressure on the nervous system.”
