Why Chiropractic Fits So Many So Well
By Sandy Schroeder
In an age of specialization, chiropractic may be one of the rare birds that serves many types of patients and areas of pain very well. As we all look for the best health and wellness resources, chiropractic stands out as a natural, drug-free choice, available for the whole family.
In the daily flow of patients, children with sports injuries, moms and dads with work or workout issues, and seniors coping with arthritis or sciatica may find themselves bumping into each other at the chiropractor’s office.
In an age where prescription opioid medications have run aground, usually only providing short-term relief, and often becoming addictive, chiropractic has moved ahead, as the majority choice of most Americans, according to the American Chiropractic Association.
If you have never been to a chiropractor, but find yourself intrigued by its success, now might be the time to find out more with a visit to The Joint Chiropractic in your area.
In the initial visit, your chiropractor will start with a spinal adjustment to correct any misalignments that you have.
The Spinal Adjustment
Your chiropractor believes a realignment of the spine, with its delicate central nervous system, may correct many of the faulty interactions between the body and the brain that cause pain. If you have back aches, neck pain, sciatica, or other joint issues, chiropractic may be able to help. Many patients also report experiencing new energy, more mental clarity or better digestion. The overall goal is to seek relief without resorting to medications or surgery.
Your chiropractor will ask about any current pain, your regular schedule, and your medical history. Then you and your chiropractor may want to put together a wellness plan to keep you in peak shape. This could be the time to refine your workout, lose weight, try a new diet, or sample a stress-reducing yoga or meditation class.
Your chiropractor may suggest weekly 15-minute chiropractic sessions to cover all of the bases. As you try the sessions out, you may want to bring in your whole family and set up individual profiles, making your chiropractor a convenient, ongoing health resource.
Proof of Satisfaction
Patient satisfaction with chiropractic care is widespread, according to the White Paper Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, 2016.
In a recent 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, it was found people visiting a chiropractor had a higher degree of satisfaction in received care.
