Why Chiropractors Are Such Good Body Carpenters
By Sandy Schroeder
Just like the real carpenter, who goes to great effort to make corners square and make sure each piece fits, your chiropractor aims for the same perfect fit in your spine.
That’s the overriding chiropractic goal, a healthy spine without misalignments, that functions properly to keep your body and your lifestyle moving.
How It Works
If you are experiencing joint, back, neck or sciatica pain, The Joint Chiropractic may be a good starting spot for answers. When you visit, a spinal adjustment will be used to assess the health of your spine and seek to realign any misalignments. The chiropractor believes this realignment may help correct joint dysfunctions that may cause more problems down the road.
During your visit, your chiropractor will ask about your lifestyle and review your medical history. The overall goal will be to help you maintain spinal health without the need for pain prescriptions or surgery.
This may prove to be a natural path to health and wellness for you and your family. Moms, dads, kids and seniors all run into pain here and there. In many cases, the natural adjustment of the spine and drug-free approach to wellness may be just what is needed.
Think about your headaches, backaches or neck aches, your kids’ sports injuries, or your senior relatives’ struggles with arthritis or sciatica. Could these individual problems use the “perfect fit” approach, skipping addictive opiates or surgical costs and risks?
According to Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, 2016, patient satisfaction with chiropractic care is well-documented. A BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders study on upper cervical chiropractic care for neck pain, headache, mid-back, and low back pain reported 9 out of 10 patients said they were well satisfied.
In another study of North Carolina patients looking for treatment for acute low back pain from various health care professionals (primary care physicians, chiropractors, and orthopedic surgeons) researchers found those who visited a chiropractor had a higher degree of satisfaction in the care they received.
I have heard many personal stories of satisfaction from my friends, relatives and co-workers. They had a range of missions, from sore knees to sore backs, and they were all looking for natural, drug-free answers. Their local chiropractor offered a wellness base that provided ongoing assistance whenever it was needed for them and their families. Often, small painful twinges were caught before they became chronic pain issues.
If this sounds like the “perfect fit” that you would like to try, stop by your local clinic, The Joint Chiropractic and find out more. The Joint provides private affordable care programs to eliminate the need for insurance, and offers flexible weekday, weekend and evening hours. Walk-in visits are welcome.
