When Is the Right Time to See a Chiropractor?

By Lana Bandoim

How can you determine the right time to see a chiropractor? Some people wait until the pain is unbearable, and they lose the ability to do simple tasks. Others prefer a preventive approach and visit chiropractors on a regular basis. Consider the following information to help you figure out when to see a chiropractor.

Pain

If you are tired of taking over-the-counter medications and using creams or ointments to fight the pain, then it may be time to see a chiropractor. Chronic pain in the joints should not be ignored. Whether you have neck stiffness or back problems, chiropractors can help. They can do spinal alignments and work on the joints to reduce pain. They can find the root source of the pain and identify other problems.  

Repetitive Tasks

Repetitive tasks can wear out your body and increase the risk of health problems. Jobs that require manual labor and repetition can lead to overuse injuries. Consider seeing a chiropractor before these repetitive tasks force you to quit working. Chiropractors can provide advice and answer questions about ergonomic changes. They can also work with you to reduce overuse injuries.

Balance and Flexibility

The risk of falls increases as people age because their balance and flexibility is affected. In addition, thinning of the bones or osteoporosis can increase the risk of injury. It is important to take a proactive approach and see a chiropractor before balance and flexibility problems make it impossible to walk or do tasks.

Exercise and Sports

From running on a treadmill to playing soccer on a field, exercise and sports can be a source of problems. Although it is important to stay active, fitness activities can lead to injuries and pain. A minor sprain can become a limp over time. Sore muscles and joint issues can develop into bigger problems. Seeing a chiropractor can help you stay active without the pain. 

Recommendations

If your doctor, friends or family members are encouraging you to see a chiropractor, do not ignore them. It is easy to listen to recommendations, put them on the to-do list and walk away. Instead, listen to their advice and visit a chiropractor.
