Smart Ways to Track Your Family's Health and Wellness
By Sandy Schroeder
Where does health and wellness begin at your house? Many parents say that it begins with a lot of sharing and caring every day, which keeps everyone happy and healthy. When that happens, health and wellness come together, and life is good.
As you consider health and wellness at your house, you might want to find out how The Joint Chiropractic can help. Licensed chiropractors are trained to provide all of the regular backup you and your family might need.
Ask yourself what you need now.
- Are you coming home with an aching back at night?
- Is your spouse running out of energy on a regular basis?
- Are your kids ready to pick new backpacks and new shoes for school?
These are all questions for your chiropractor. Bring the family and stop by The Joint Chiropractic in your neighborhood.
Focusing on spinal health, your chiropractor will show you how a healthy spine may be the best starting point. In your first visit you will find out how a spinal adjustment works, seeking to correct any dysfunctions. The goal is to restore spinal health without using pain medications or surgery.
When misalignments are corrected, there may be pain relief in the back, neck, sciatica and other joints. Improved spinal health may also help with future treatment of allergies, arthritis, headaches and migraines. Some patients say they are also pleasantly surprised by new energy, better metabolism, digestion or mental clarity.
Overall, patient satisfaction with chiropractic has been significant, according to the White Paper Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, 2016. A study that analyzed data from 85,000 Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) beneficiaries in Tennessee over a two-year span concluded: "Low back pain initiated with a Doctor of Chiropractic saves 40 percent on health care costs when compared with care initiated through a medical doctor."
There is also dramatic evidence of the value of chiropractic care in surgical avoidance that results in not only cost savings, but also patient outcomes and satisfaction. The journal Spine published a study reporting: “Reduced odds of surgery were observed for those whose first provider was a chiropractor - 42.7 percent of workers with back injuries, who first saw a surgeon had surgery, in contrast to only 1.5 percent of those who saw a chiropractor.”
