Chiropractic Subtracts Pain and Adds Wellness
By Sandy Schroeder
As the kids head back to school, and we all look to the New Year, hard questions about health care often arise. We may ask ourselves if we are really doing the math to cover all of the bases in the most effective manner? Or we may wonder what could be done to pull all of our health efforts together into a more focused plan?
Questions like these could point to chiropractic as the healthcare choice that more and more people are talking about. The one that may subtract pain and add wellness for you and your family. You may have heard it described as “positively different,” or “the conservative first choice.”
Overall, in a culture where opioid pain prescription medications are causing serious damage to our communities, the natural, whole person, drug-free chiropractic approach may be a choice that you will want to explore for yourself and your family.
How It Actually Works
When you visit, you will find a wellness center geared to help you and your family seek solutions for pain, and gain perspective on health and wellness direction for the long term.
First, your chiropractor will explain the philosophy of spinal health. Your chiropractor believes a well-adjusted spine may help create a well adjusted you.
This is the time for you to ask questions, and find out more about the process. The chiropractor will want to talk about any current issues that you have with pain, your daily routine and your medical history.
The Spinal Adjustment
Then a spinal adjustment will be used to check for dysfunctions, which are misalignments of one or more vertebrae in the spine and/or the joints. When the misalignment is corrected, it may have far-reaching effects on pain. Many patients also report being pleasantly surprised by new energy, improved sleep, better digestion, and more alertness.
Wellness is a very individual thing. But you may want to set up weekly 15-minute sessions when you consider the many positive effects of chiropractic treatment. You may also want to work on more ways to get better sleep, lose weight or siphon away some of your daily stress.
I have known a variety of friends and neighbors who have used this path to sort out their problems and keep their lives together. Each time, their chiropractors proved to be the key resource, providing the backup they needed.
