What Could a Chiropractic Adjustment Do for You?
By Sandy Schroeder
Think about where you are now and what your body needs.
- Could a chiropractic adjustment be a natural way to relieve pain, avoiding potentially addictive pain killer prescriptions?
- Could it be the stimulus your body welcomes to run faster and feel stronger?
- Could it be the main component of weekly chiropractic tune-up to work on long term health goals?
Find out for yourself with a visit to your local clinic, The Joint Chiropractic. Focusing on the health of the spine, the chiropractic adjustment may be a game-changer your body welcomes.
Your first visit will start with the adjustment to evaluate your spinal health to correct any misalignments. Then your chiropractor will ask about symptoms of pain, daily routines and medical history.
Your spine is made of 24 independent vertebrae that let your body twist, bend and keep moving through every moment of your day. The spine houses and protects the delicate central nervous system that coordinates and controls all of the muscles, tissues and organs in your body.
Keeping your spine in optimal health, and learning how to stay active without injury may be the chiropractic benefits that inspire you to upgrade your workout, lose extra pounds, or find an ongoing stress reduction routine.
According to the American Chiropractic Association, the medical community has named chiropractic as a “conservative first choice,” ahead of prescription pain pills or elective surgery. Now, a majority of Americans choose chiropractic first when they have pain.
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 Doctor of Chiropractic saves 40 percent on health care costs when compared with care initiated through a medical doctor.
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.
In another study of North Carolina patients seeking treatment for acute low back pain from various health care professionals such as primary care physicians, chiropractors, and orthopedic surgeons, researchers found those who visited a chiropractor had a higher degree of satisfaction in the care they received.
