How to Simplify Fall With A Chiropractic Assist
By Sandy Schroeder
As we make the transition from last minute summer trips and weekend barbecues to upcoming fall events, we may wish life were just a bit simpler.
One way to make the fall commotion simpler and safer for your family might be arranging individual visits now with your local clinic, The Joint Chiropractic.
The Joint is well suited to serve as a wellness center for the whole family, fielding everything from kids’ backpack questions to seniors’ arthritic flare ups.
Checking In at The Joint Chiropractic
If this is a first visit for you and your family you may be surprised and pleased with the options.
In your initial visit you will find out how it all works with a spinal adjustment that evaluates the spine’s health and seeks to correct any dysfunctions.
Your chiropractor’s goal will be to restore spinal health as the wellness base for everything else, without using pain medications or surgery.
Your chiropractor will ask about any current pain, normal activities, and medical history. Then you can talk about ongoing plans for each family member, mapping out the best wellness approaches.
Preparing for fall, this may be a good time to review backpack and tote concerns, making sure individual tote bags distribute weight to both shoulders and never exceed 10 percent of the individual’s weight.
I have watched a variety of families use this ongoing approach to chiropractic wellness to their advantage. When they needed it, chiropractic backup was always there. Some encountered injuries and accidents. Others were faced with workplace challenges. Overall, the pattern was the same as they relied on their chiropractors to help them keep everything going.
Perhaps that is why chiropractic is now a majority choice for Americans, becoming the conservative first choice, ahead of pain pill prescriptions or surgery.
According to the White Paper, Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, 2016, 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, including primary care physicians, chiropractors, and orthopedic surgeons, researchers found that those who visited a chiropractor had a higher degree of satisfaction in the care they received.
If this sounds like a great way to prepare for fall, stop by The Joint Chiropractic and find out how simple it can be. Private affordable care plans have replaced insurance and flexible weekend and evening hours are available. No appointments are needed.
