Ready to Subtract Pain and Add Wellness?
By Sandy Schroeder
As fall swoops in with all of its demands, you might be able to use a little “chiropractic math” to add wellness and subtract pain. If you look closer, that really describes the spinal focus that chiropractors use to help your spine help you.
Stop by The Joint Chiropractic and find out what this means. On your first visit, you will find a wellness center, ready to help seek solutions for pain, and provide ongoing health assistance.
Wipe the Slate Clean
Your chiropractor will explain how joint dysfunctions may occur and how a chiropractic adjustment is used to correct them to wipe the slate clean for you.
This is a good time to ask questions, and get to know your chiropractor. He or she will want to discuss your issues, such as pain, sleep or energy, your daily schedule and your medical history.
Then a spinal assessment will be used to check for subluxations, which are misalignments of one or more vertebrae in the spine and/or the joints. When the misalignment is corrected, it may have far-reaching effects on pain. Many patients also say they experience other benefits, such as new energy, better sleep, improved digestion, or more mental alertness.
Wellness Can Be Contagious
As you find out what spinal adjustments do for you, you may decide to do weekly 15-minute chiropractic visits to keep the momentum going. Wellness really can be contagious, so this may lead to other improvements, better workouts, new stress reduction tactics, or healthier foods.
Over the years I have watched many friends, co-workers and family members use chiropractic assistance to keep their lives going. Whenever a new issue came up, their chiropractors provided the expertise and the backup to deal with the problem and help them stay on track.
According to the White Paper, Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, 2016 – “Chiropractic, A Safer Strategy than Opiates,” reports of patient satisfaction with chiropractic care are widespread.
In a study of North Carolina patients seeking treatment for acute low back pain from various health care professionals including primary care physicians, chiropractors, and orthopedic surgeons, researchers found that those who visited a chiropractor had a higher degree of satisfaction in the care they received.
Duke University researchers reported, “For neck pain and headaches, cervical spine manipulation was associated with significant improvement in headache outcomes in trials involving patients with neck pain and/or neckdysfunction and headache.”
