Are You Still Looking for Heath Options?
By Sandy Schroeder
Our culture is packed with health and wellness information, often making us question what we are doing. Finding the right answers can be confusing, but when we do, it is usually well worth the search.
If you are still looking for more answers, you may find it worthwhile to find out what chiropractic has to offer.
The medical community has designated chiropractic as a “conservative first choice” for pain, ahead of prescription medications, or surgery, according to the American Chiropractic Association.
In a culture where prescription opioid medications have created major problems in our communities, natural, drug-free approaches, such as chiropractic, offer real alternatives.
The Chiropractic Answer
Stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you and see how this whole person approach to wellness works.
You will learn how the spine and the central nervous system commands everything we do. Your chiropractor believes the healthier your spine is, the better off you may be.
In your initial visit your chiropractor will ask about your pain symptoms, and use a spinal adjustment to correct misalignments that often create miscommunications between the body and brain. You may feel pain relief in your back, neck, sciatica or other joints. Patients may also feel new energy, or experience improved metabolism. Others say they feel more mental clarity.
Options for Wellness
Wellness really is an individual thing. You and your chiropractor will want to assess the results, as you shape treatment plans, and health and wellness goals that fit you.
You may use weekly 15-minute chiropractic sessions for adjustments, which also help your chiropractor catch any misalignments before they have a chance to settle in. At the same time, this may be a chance to expand on your goals, considering new stress reduction tactics, heathier foods, new work hours, or ways to be more active daily.
Approval of Chiropractic Treatment
Patient satisfaction with chiropractic has been widespread, according to the White Paper Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, 2016.
The Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics reports acute and chronic chiropractic patients achieved better outcomes in pain, functional disability, and patient satisfaction. Clinically important differences in pain and disability improvement were found for chronic patients.
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 those who visited a chiropractor had a higher degree of satisfaction in received care.
