When Life's Mishaps Add Up, Chiropractic Subtracts the Hits
By Sandy Schroeder
Life really changes every day and we do our best to change with it. We hang in there, and keep going, as schedules change, family demands soar, and time simply runs out.
In the process, we may demand too much of our bodies. Long work hours, poor posture in daily repetitive tasks, and careless lifting at home may deliver a steady run of hits.
Sorting it all out becomes a real issue when painful twinges, and end-of-the-day pain signals, refuse to go away.
That’s where your local clinic, The Joint Chiropractic comes in. The Joint’s licensed chiropractors have the training and experience to help you see where you are, and seek solutions to turn things around.
Reclaiming your pleasure with life could start with some spinal attention. That’s the chiropractic philosophy. Your spine contains the fragile nervous system that facilitates every move you make. With a spinal adjustment, your chiropractor will seek to realign your spine, correcting any dysfunctions that could be creating ongoing pain.
Chiropractic patients often report relief from back, neck and sciatica pain, along with extra energy, better digestion and improved metabolism. They may also work on painful knees, sore ankles, shoulders, or arthritic joints.
How It Works
In the initial visit, your chiropractor will use a spinal adjustment to realign your spine and evaluate your spinal health. He or she will want to hear about your patterns of pain, ongoing activities and medical history.
As you forge a connection with chiropractic, lots of other good things may happen too. You may now feel like heading off to the park with your kids after work, instead of just camping on the couch.
On weekends, you may be ready to finally do that camping trip you have been planning forever. Other doors may open too, as you upgrade your workout, learn more about stress reduction, and start eating healthier to retain energy and shed pounds.
According to the White Paper, Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, 2016, a 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, found that those who visited a chiropractor had a higher degree of satisfaction in the care they received.
This could explain why chiropractic is now the majority choice of most Americans when they have pain, according to the American Chiropractic Association.
