How a Chiropractic Tune-up Works
By Sandy Schroeder
We all know how tune-ups work on a car, or a computer. But sometimes we fail to realize our bodies are in need of serious tuneups too. We just keep going, ignoring small twinges of pain, hoping for the best.
If you know how it feels to have an aching back, stiff knees or a sore neck, you may relate to this issue. It would be wonderful to feel better.
Feeling a lot better could actually start with a visit to The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you. The Joint is staffed with licensed chiropractors who see a range of patients from toddlers to teens, adults to seniors, on an everyday basis.
In many of those visits, The Joint Chiropractors use spinal adjustments to correct dysfunctions in the spine, helping to seek pain relief, and often generating an overall feeling of wellness with more energy, better mental focus, and improved digestion or metabolism. Life really may seem better and ongoing chiropractic treatments may provide a way to keep life on track and moving ahead.
The specifics of chiropractic treatment may help improve nerve communication in the body, improved joint motion and coordination, relief from back and neck pain, or relief from leg, knee, foot or ankle pain. In addition, chiropractors may deal with arm, wrist, shoulders or elbow pain, bursitis and arthritis.
When you visit, your chiropractor will ask about your pain, your normal routine, and your medical history. The goal will be to help you seek relief without using pain medications or surgery.
Often the initial diagnosis leads to a pattern of ongoing visits that may give you the opportunity to stay tuned up as you pursue individual concerns like losing weight, reducing stress or becoming stronger and more active.
I have known a lot of families who used this path to keep their lives running well. Some of those individuals ran into severe lower back pain. Others coped with arthritis and very painful knees, fighting to stay mobile and preserve their lifestyle. Still others ran into posture problems as they stayed glued to their screens. They had to rethink their work style and actual workplace. But overall, the wellness path and tune-up approach worked to help all of them seek pain relief and maintain their normal routines.
If this sounds like a tune-up you could use, stop by The Joint Chiropractic and see how easy it is to get started. The Joint offers an affordable care program that eliminates the need for insurance. Their doors are open seven days a week and evening hours are provided. No appointments are needed and walk-in visits are welcome.
