When Pain Hits Chiropractic May Help
By Sandy Schroeder
Most of us tolerate little twinges of pain that come and go. But when we are hit with serious pain, the whole situation shifts.
If you, or someone in your family, is facing ongoing pain, in areas such as the neck, back, joint or sciatic nerve, you know what a difference it can make. Yesterday’s regular routines suddenly become complicated. Little things become major.
Most of all, you need answers.
The Joint Chiropractic may be one of the best ways for you to get those answers. The Joint staffs a wellness center that focuses on spinal health to help improve your health.
How It Works
When you come in, you will find everything is easier. No appointments are needed and an affordable care program eliminates the need for insurance. Clinics are open seven days a week with evening hours available. Walk-in visits are welcome.
In your first visit, your chiropractor will explain how spinal dysfunctions can occur, and how spinal adjustments may help to fix them. You will discuss your pain, your regular routines and your medical history. This is a good time for you to ask questions or voice any concerns that you have.
If a spinal adjustment seems like a good choice, you will be adjusted in an open bay area on a special table. Wear comfortable clothes.
The overall goal will be to seek pain relief without using pain medications or surgery. After the adjustment, you may feel far-reaching pain relief, and other benefits, such as more energy, better mental focus, or improved sleep.
The Wellness Path
Wellness is a very individual thing. As you evaluate the results of your spinal adjustment, you may decide to use weekly 15-minute adjustment sessions to continue the benefits. At the same time, you may be inspired to try a few stress reduction tactics, upgrade your workouts, or revamp your work schedule. Chiropractic can be contagious. One good thing may prompt many more.
This pattern of success turns out to be widespread. Sources such as the “White Paper, Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, 2016,” lists numerous patient satisfaction reports turning up across the country.
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.
A BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders study on upper cervical chiropractic care for neck pain, headache, mid-back, and low back pain concludes that 9.1 out of 10 patients indicate a very high level of patient satisfaction.
