Trust Your Chiropractor

By Rachel Carver

Trust is a big word. It takes time for some people to open up, let alone having to share personal matters such as health history when you first meet a doctor.

However, chiropractors need to know your health history to provide effective treatment. Research suggests that, no matter how much information a medical professional has about what they do, they cannot effectively help you if they don't know your personal circumstances.

The Joint Chiropractic clinic team in your community is ready to give you the care you need to get you back to your life. To do this, they need to know factors such as if you slouch, if you sit a lot, or if you are feeling nervous about being adjusted. Full transparency from both sides will give you the best results.

Disclose Your Habits

Your chiropractor will not judge you. Doctors of chiropractic use spinal adjustments to find and treat the cause of your pain. Knowing your regular habits will help them identify your pain source. Factors such as how you sit at your desk, incorrect lifting, or even the way you sleep can cause spinal joint restrictions, which lead to pain and discomfort. With information about these habits, The Joint team can treat your pain and advise you how to prevent it in the future.

Share Your Medications

Your chiropractor is part of your healthcare team. This means they should have your full medication list. Some medications can reduce energy levels, making you more sedentary. If you regularly use pain medication to manage your pain symptoms, the chiropractor can develop a plan to reduce and often eliminate this pain and the need for these medications.

Reveal Your Past

It is easy to lose track of things, such as an old injury. However, a previous injury or accident can cause pain or discomfort.

Maybe you experience occasional neck pain from a car accident. Maybe you injured your knee in high school sports. Or maybe your wrists hurt after years of typing. With knowledge about previous trauma or injuries, your chiropractor has a place to start to figure out your pain cause.

Your chiropractor wants to relieve your pain and get you back to your life. But they need the whole story to do this. Many factors can cause pain or discomfort. And trusting your chiropractor with important health information will ensure you get the care you need.

Head on into The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you to find answers for your pain. The Joint team will set a treatment plan that fits your needs and your situation. And trust from both sides will be important for this plan to succeed.
