When the Body Hesitates, Chiropractic May Help
By Sandy Schroeder
Life is full of hesitations, but usually we manage to work through the challenges and move on.
But when our bodies hesitate, life becomes more difficult. A loss of energy, a new painful ache that refuses to go away, or repeated nights of lost sleep can all create real problems, making every day much harder.
Finding a way to put everything back together could be as simple as seeing your local chiropractor, The Joint Chiropractic.
The Chiropractic Advantage
On your first visit, you may see why everyone is talking about chiropractic. You will find a wellness center ready to help seek solutions for pain and provide ongoing health assistance.
Your chiropractor will explain how joint dysfunctions may occur, how a chiropractic adjustment is used to correct them, and the many benefits chiropractic has to offer. This is a good time for you to ask questions and get to know your chiropractor. He or she will want to talk about your current issues with pain, sleep or energy, your daily schedule and your medical history.
Then a spinal assessment will be used to check for subluxations, 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 positive effects on pain. Many patients also report being pleasantly surprised by new energy, better sleep, improved metabolism, and mental clarity.
The Wellness Zone
At this point, you may want to set up weekly 15-minute sessions to stay in this new zone. You may also work on more ways to get better sleep, and keep your energy flowing. I have known a variety of friends and co-workers who have used this path to sort out their problems and keep their lives moving. Each time, their chiropractors proved to be the key resource, providing the backup they needed.
Overall, patient satisfaction with chiropractic has been significant, according to the White Paper Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, 2016. A study that analyzed data from 85,000 Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) beneficiaries in Tennessee over a two-year span concluded: Low back pain initiated with a chiropractor saves 40 percent on health care costs when compared with care initiated through a medical doctor.
If this sounds like a good wellness path for you, stop by the Joint Chiropractic and find out more. The Joint makes it simple.
