Chiropractic - A Stepping Stone to Wellness
By Sandy Schroeder
We live in a society where health information flourishes. Often we can sift through it to find valid approaches that fit our families and our lives. But sometimes it pays to look further, adding new options with surprising benefits.
That may be the case with chiropractic. More people are talking about it as they discover its wide range of benefits.
To see for yourself, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you and meet its staff of health professionals who treat everyone from children to seniors, providing whole person, natural approaches to everyday issues.
Wherever you are with pain, or other health issues, chiropractic may be able to provide the answers you need.
Spinal Health and Wellness
Chiropractic is based on a philosophy of achieving and maintaining spinal health. The spine houses the delicate nervous system that controls everything we do. Your chiropractor believes a well adjusted spine may help patients achieve a more well-adjusted life.
When you look at the range of results that patients report, you can see why chiropractic is of interest to so many. When patients come in seeking relief from pain, a spinal adjustment is used to correct any dysfunctions. In the process, pain relief may be achieved for neck, back, sciatica and other joints without using pain medications or surgery.
In addition, many patients report benefits, such as better sleep, more mental clarity, more energy, better digestion, a more relaxed feeling, and improved metabolism.
Many of us can relate to this list of potential benefits as we deal with these same issues. Shedding stress, sleeping better, and summoning more energy top my list of needed benefits.
Across the country, patient approval reports are numerous. According to the White Paper, Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, 2016 – “Chiropractic, A Safer Strategy than Opiates,” reports of patient satisfaction with chiropractic care are widespread.
In 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, researchers found that those who visited a chiropractor had a higher degree of satisfaction in the care they received.
Duke University researchers reported, “For neck pain and headaches, cervical spine manipulation was associated with significant improvement in headache outcomes in trials involving patients with neck pain and/or neck dysfunction and headache.”
