Why Chiropractic May Fit You Perfectly Now
By Sandy Schroeder
Most of us are hearing more about chiropractic as the medical community has designated it as a “conservative first choice” before prescription medication or elective surgery, according to the American Chiropractic Association.
In the swing away from addictive opioid pain medication prescriptions that have become epidemic in many communities and neighborhoods, more and more people are looking for natural, drug-free answers to pain.
Natural Solutions to Pain
So what does that mean for you and your family on a day-to-day basis?
If you want to see, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you. You will find a comprehensive wellness center staffed with licensed chiropractors who have a patient-centered, natural, whole person approach.
The chiropractors at The Joint see everyone from small children to seniors. They believe wellness and routine chiropractic care should be as basic to our lives as healthy diets and dental care.
Spinal Health Focus
They offer the purest form of chiropractic care, focusing on spinal health, providing full spinal adjustments. As you lie on your stomach on a special table in an open room, a spinal adjustment will be used to realign the spine, checking for misalignments.
When misalignments are corrected, you may experience pain relief in the neck, back, sciatica or other joints. Patients have also reported feeling additional benefits, such as new energy, better digestion, improved metabolism and more mental clarity.
Wellness is a very individual thing. When you find out how chiropractic treatment works for you, visits may become weekly 15-minute adjustments. In the process, you may also be inspired to lose a few pounds, work on new stress reduction tactics, or find more new ways to stay active.
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.
Spine reported a study that said, “Reduced odds of surgery were observed for those whose first provider was a chiropractor - 42.7 percent of workers, with back injuries, who first saw a surgeon had surgery, in contrast to only 1.5 percent of those who saw a chiropractor.”
A BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders study on upper cervical chiropractic care for neck pain, headache, mid-back, and low back pain concludes that 9.1 out of 10 patients indicate a very high level of patient satisfaction.
If you would like to find out more about chiropractic, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic in your area. You will find a private, affordable pricing plan that eliminates the need for insurance. The Joint is also open in the evenings and weekends with walk-in visits welcome.
