When Every Day Is Painful, Chiropractic May Help
By Sandy Schroeder
Sometimes pain really can define your whole day when it keeps building, and sometimes becomes chronic. If you or someone in your family is coping with ongoing pain, your chiropractor may be able to help.
For many of us, pain can be minor twinges that make our necks stiff and our backs ache. Finding relief can definitely lighten the day. For seniors in our family, pain can settle in with more painful arthritic or sciatic challenges to the point of cramping lifestyles and threatening mobility.
To find out more about chiropractic pain relief, you might visit your local clinic of The Joint Chiropractic.
When to See Your Chiropractor
When you come in, you will find a wellness center staffed with licensed chiropractors who see everyone from teens to adults to seniors on a daily basis.
The goal is to seek pain relief without using pain medications or surgery. Overall, the medical community has designated this chiropractic process as the “conservative first choice.”
As we continue to see stories of prescription opioid addiction in our communities, the medical community has spotlighted chiropractic as a logical, drug-free choice for pain relief.
In terms of pain relief for you and your family, that can start with your first visit. Your chiropractor will want to talk about current pain, daily schedules and medical history.
Finding Pain Relief and More
Your chiropractor will explain how spinal health may be the way to achieve overall health. Using a spinal adjustment to correct any dysfunctions in the spine may create pain relief in the neck, back, sciatic nerve, or other joints. It may also generate more energy, more mental clarity and better metabolism and digestion.
Evaluating individual results for you and your family members can lead to a regular pattern of visits. Some people choose weekly 15-minute adjustments, or monthly visits. As immediate pain solutions and preventive maintenance come up, you may find time to deal with additional wellness issues such as work overloads, stress reduction tactics, or weight loss.
More and more people are discovering chiropractic wellness. According to the Annals of Internal Medicine 2002 report from Meeker and Haldeman, “Chiropractic is the largest, most regulated and best recognized of the complementary and alternative professions, with the greatest use and the highest patient satisfaction. In the past 20 years, chiropractic use has tripled in the United States.
