Why Chiropractic Is Always a Step Ahead
By Sandy Schroeder
The growing buzz about chiropractic as a healthcare alternative just keeps building as more people hear about it and spread the word. There are really three key reasons why chiropractic has some momentum, and interest is growing.
First, chiropractic has been singled out by the medical community as a logical first choice. Second, widespread patient approval is being reported nationwide, and third, chiropractic numbers are rapidly growing.
The Conservative First Choice
The medical community has singled chiropractic out as “the conservative first choice,” ahead of prescription medications and elective surgery to combat the opioid prescription issue, according to the American Chiropractic Association. As opioid prescriptions have spiraled out of control across the country, chiropractic is seen as a logical choice to help individuals receive drug-free pain relief without risking addiction.
Pleased Patient Reports
Chiropractic leads the way in back pain too. American Journal of Public Health reports say back care patients who had four weeks of chiropractic treatment were more satisfied than those receiving medical care.
The Annals of Internal Medicine report chiropractic is steadily increasing in the U.S. In the past 20 years, chiropractic patient numbers have tripled, making chiropractic the leading alternative group in the complementary and alternative medicine field.
If these endorsements interest you, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic in your community and find out more about chiropractic treatment. When you come in, The Joint chiropractors will explain the philosophy of spinal health and demonstrate a spinal adjustment if it seems beneficial for you.
They will want to know if you are having pain, what your normal routine is, and what your medical history is. Using a spinal adjustment to correct any dysfunctions in the spine may provide far-reaching relief in areas such as the back, neck, sciatic nerve, or other joints. Patients may also report feeling more relaxed, more energetic, or more focused.
Wellness is unique to the individual. As you assess your results you may want to pursue weekly 15-minute adjustments, or consider bringing in your whole family. You might also be inspired to try out some new stress reduction classes, healthier foods, or new activities.
I have many friends who also heard about chiropractic and followed up on the recommendations to try it. Many of them kept right on going, using chiropractic to solve all sorts of joint pain issues.
If you would like to follow their lead, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you. An affordable care program eliminates the need for insurance. Extended weekend and evening hours make visits easy and no appointments are needed.
