Chiropractic Explained in Five Minutes!
By Sara Butler
If you had only a few minutes to explain chiropractic care to someone who has never been to a chiropractor, what would you say? Chiropractic patients already know all the benefits chiropractic care has to offer, but many chiropractic patients are faced with friends, family, and co-workers that don’t know all these benefits. Here’s a great way to break down all the benefit of chiropractic in less than five minutes!
The Cause of Back Pain
One thing that separates chiropractors from other medical professionals is they don’t want to just treat your symptoms, they want to find the cause of your pain and fix it. Chiropractors do a full physical exam and try to determine the cause of what you’re experiencing so they can begin treating that, not just your pain.
They Can Eliminate Pain
Once your chiropractor has found the cause of what’s ailing you they can then create a treatment plan especially for you and begin to treat the underlying cause of your pain. The chiropractic adjustments they perform help to restore normal function and motion to your joints and your spine.
They Teach You How to Prevent Future Pain
Chiropractors don’t just adjust you, they also want to help guide and teach you to keep your body balanced and hopefully avoid any similar problems in the future. They may recommend physical therapy or exercises you can do at home to help restore balance and help you to understand the ways you can prevent injury through a healthier lifestyle, including a lifestyle that involves caring for your spine!
The Bottom Line
The next time you’re faced with a situation where you have to explain what makes chiropractic so great, the one message you will want to drive home is that chiropractors seek to treat pain and other health issues naturally, without medications. In seeking to accomplish this they have to find out what is causing your pain and discomfort so it can be treated.
Chiropractors aren’t just interested in your spine either; they’re interested in your overall health and see the spine as a window to that health. If you or your friends are nervous about going to the chiropractor and don’t know where to start, The Joint is a great place to go. They never need an appointment and The Joint’s chiropractors are happy to take the time to educate new patients about their spines and what chiropractic can do for them. Luckily, you’ve already explained all the benefits and now they just need to get started!
