How Chiropractic Wellness Really Works
By Sandy Schroeder
We know how physicians and surgeons work, but chiropractors offer a totally different, ongoing, whole person approach that creates a different relationship. This unique, ongoing process can be one more way to protect the health and well-being of your family.
We all see our doctors when an illness or injury occurs, or for a regular checkup. But the intervals then stretch out until the next visit is needed.
In contrast, you may get to know your chiropractor much better as you develop regular patterns of treatment. This allows him to monitor your health, to catch little snags early, before they become major issues.
Many people choose weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments to stay at their peak. Often they use those sessions as their launch point to move ahead with other health measures, like more outdoor activities, better, healthier, foods, or new ways to offload stress like tai chi or mindfulness meditation.
If this ongoing health and wellness chiropractic way of doing business sounds good to you, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic in your community to find out more.
How It Works for You
When you come in, bring your questions and your goals. As you get to know your chiropractor, he or she can help you work on those goals.
Your chiropractor will explain how a healthy spine may lead to a healthier you. He or she will want to know if you are having pain, what your regular schedule is, and what your medical history is.
Then if a spinal adjustment seems beneficial, it can be done in an open bay area on a comfortable table. Be sure to wear comfortable clothes. As the spinal adjustment helps to correct any dysfunctions in your spine, you may feel pain relief in areas such as the neck, back, sciatic nerve, or other joints. Many patients also report feeling a sense of well-being, more mental alertness, or more energy.
Spinal Health and Wellness
Spinal wellness is unique to the individual. As you evaluate your results, you and your chiropractor can put together a treatment plan that works for you.
I have known many people who used this chiropractic backup plan to keep their health together over the years. Whatever came up, painful knees, sore shoulders, or stiff necks, their chiropractors were on hand to help solve the problem and keep them on track.
If that sounds like a good plan for you, stop by The Joint Chiropractic near you and get started. The Joint provides an affordable care plan that eliminates the need for insurance. They also offer convenient evening and weekend hours, and welcome walk-in visits.
