When Pain Invades Your Space See Your Chiropractor
By Sandy Schroeder
Most of us ignore small twinges of pain as we move through daily routines. But when pain makes a statement that we can’t ignore, it’s time to take action. Every day becomes a test, and even small tasks become a challenge. Pain simply refuses to let go and it's time to take back your space.
If you or someone in your family is facing this sort of severe, ongoing pain, you know that it can steal your joy, and dominate everything you do.
Whatever your source of pain, finding the right answer is critical. Musculoskeletal conditions are a leading cause of disability with back pain emerging as the single leading cause of disability worldwide. According to the American Chiropractic Association, Americans spend some $50 billion annually on back pain.
The Chiropractic Answer
Finding an answer could start with The Joint Chiropractic clinic in your community, where licensed chiropractors are trained to seek safe, natural solutions to pain without medication or surgery.
Starting with a conservative, cost-effective treatment, chiropractors focus on spinal health. In your initial visit, your chiropractor will explain how joint dysfunctions may occur and spinal adjustments may help relieve pain when they are corrected.
This is a good time for you to ask questions, as you and your chiropractor discuss your pain. Your chiropractor will want to know what your medical history is, and what your daily schedule looks like. Together you can start to look for answers.
As a spinal adjustment is used to realign any dysfunctions in your spine, you may experience pain relief in your neck, back, sciatica, or other joints. Patients also report feeling new energy or experiencing better digestion and metabolism.
The spine is our command central, housing the delicate nervous system that controls every function of the body. Finding out what spinal wellness may do for you could be pretty exciting.
As you learn more about chiropractic, you may choose to do weekly 15-minute chiropractic sessions, or select another ongoing maintenance schedule. Whatever works to help to take pain out of the daily equation, restoring regular routines will be the goal.
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 chiropractor saves 40 percent on health care costs when compared with care initiated through a medical doctor.
If this sounds like a plan you would like to pursue, The Joint Chiropractic makes it easy to get started. Private, affordable care plans have replaced the hassle of insurance, and convenient walk-in visits with extended weekend and evening hours are available. No appointment is needed.
