Intrigued by Chiropractic? Join the Crowd!
By Sandy Schroeder
The reason it seems like everyone is talking about chiropractic now is because a lot of people are! Wherever you go, at work, with friends, or out in the community, you may find chiropractic comments keep turning up.
One person may say, “Chiropractic is entirely different than anything I have experienced.”
Another explains, “I found prescription painkillers were becoming addictive, and simply not solving my back pain. Then I tried chiropractic and found relief.”
Finally, countless others may simply feel they have to tell someone how great chiropractic can be as they enjoy the changes they have experienced.
Visiting the Chiropractor
If you are intrigued too, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic in your community and find out more.
On your first visit, you may see why everyone is talking about chiropractic. You will find a wellness center staffed with licensed chiropractors trained to help you seek relief for pain.
As the chiropractor asks about your current issues with pain, your typical schedule and your medical history, you can ask questions and find out more about spinal health.
The Spinal Adjustment
Then a spinal adjustment will be used to correct any misalignments in the spine, or other joints. When the misalignment is corrected, it may have far-reaching effects on any pain you have been having in the neck, back, or sciatica. Patients also report feeling more energetic, sleeping better or enjoying improved digestion and more mental alertness.
As you experience chiropractic treatment, you may decide to schedule weekly 15-minute maintenance sessions to stay in the zone. I have watched friends, neighbors and co-workers use this weekly routine to keep right on going as they up their workouts, lose weight, and lower their daily stress levels.
Many Levels of Satisfaction
According to the White Paper, Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, 2016 – “Chiropractic, A Safer Strategy than Opiates,” there is dramatic evidence that chiropractic care helps avoid surgery, creates real savings, and delivers patient satisfaction.
The Journal Spine published a study reporting: “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.”
Another two-year study analyzed data from 85,000 Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) beneficiaries in Tennessee, concluding: 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 by eliminating the hassle with insurance and offering extended weekend and evening hours to make visits convenient. Obviously, walk-ins are welcome.
