How Does Chiropractic History Translate for You?
By Sandy Schroeder
“The word chiropractic comes from the Greek words cheir and praxis, meaning hand and practice. The words mean treatment done by the hands or hands-on therapy,” according to YaleMedicalGroup.org.
How This Could Work for You
Stop by your local chiropractor, The Joint Chiropractic, and find out. You will find a comprehensive wellness center, ready to assist you with hands-on spinal adjustments that focus on the health of your spine.
Your chiropractor believes pain can stem from blockages along nerve bundles in the spinal cord. As you lie on your stomach on a special table in an open room, the chiropractor will use a spinal adjustment to realign the spine.
A spinal adjustment may provide far-reaching relief for neck, back, sciatica or other joint pain. At the same, you may feel more relaxed, more mentally alert, or more energetic. Wellness is a very individual thing. As you experience your results, you and your chiropractor can shape an on-going wellness plan, based on your needs. The chiropractor will review your medical history and ask about your daily schedule and regular activities.
You may find a 15-minute weekly chiropractic adjustment works the best for you. This also allows your chiropractor to monitor your health on an ongoing basis. As you go along, you may find this could be the wellness backup that you need for everyone in your family.
As kids head back to school and run into sports injuries, or seniors in the family face new arthritis or sciatica challenges, having individual health profiles on file with your chiropractor could be just the backup needed.
According to the White Paper, Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, 2016 – “Chiropractic, A Safer Strategy than Opiates,” reports of patient satisfaction with chiropractic care are widespread.
In a study of North Carolina patients seeking treatment for acute low back pain from various health care professionals, including 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.
Duke University researchers reported, “For neck pain and headaches, cervical spine manipulation was associated with significant improvement in headache outcomes in trials involving patients with neck pain and/or neck dysfunction and headache.”
