When Everything Works Your Body Smiles
By Sandy Schroeder
When we feel like it is a perfect day, it’s hard to stop laughing. Everything seems so much easier. The headache leaves. Or the backache disappears. The tiredness lifts.
Results like that can be pretty exciting when they have been very difficult. It may really feel like a weight has been lifted.
When a spinal adjustment helps to realign the body, the whole body may work better, with pain relief, new energy, and mental clarity emerging.
If you and your body are ready to find out more about the whole person approach to wellness that chiropractic offers, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you.
How It Works
In your first visit, your chiropractor will want to talk about your daily activities, and any pain that you are having. Your medical history will also be reviewed.
Then your chiropractor will use a spinal adjustment to seek to relieve your pain, to help you get back to your normal routine without pain pill prescriptions or elective surgery.
Your chiropractor will be looking for misalignments of vertebrae in the spine. When those dysfunctions are realigned, you may feel far-reaching pain relief in areas like the neck, back, sciatica or other joints.
Turning the Page
Pain relief really is like flipping the page. It’s contagious. When you feel better you may be eager to work on other health issues, taking a tai chi class for stress, or upgrading a workout and eating healthier foods to lose weight. Suddenly long range goals do not seem so unreachable.
I have watched friends, relatives and neighbors navigate this path, using chiropractic to get back on track and stay there. Some had back problems, others struggled with stiff necks or painful knees. In each case, their chiropractors were there with the regular treatment, monitoring their progress and helping to make it all work.
This ongoing approach can lead to a lot of satisfied patients. The White Paper, Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, 2016 reports The Journal Spine published the first reported randomized controlled trial comparing full evidence-based clinical practice guidelines treatment, including spinal manipulative therapy administered by chiropractors, to family physician–directed usual care in the treatment of patients with acute mechanical low back pain. Compared to family physician care, chiropractic spinal manipulative treatment is associated with significantly greater improvement.
If this approach to your back pain seems like the best course, stop by The Joint Chiropractic in your community. The Joint has simplified everything, providing private, affordable care programs in place of insurance, and offering extended weekend and evening hours. No appointments are necessary.
