Where Does It Hurt? Chiropractic May Help
By Sandy Schroeder
When pain becomes your constant companion, relief quickly becomes imperative. If you have aching elbows, hands or feet, you want answers now. Or, you may have back, shoulder, or knee issues.
In each case, your body may feel like one large toothache, and The Joint Chiropractic clinic in your community is ready to help you seek relief. The Joint’s experienced staff of chiropractors will introduce you to the philosophy of whole person, natural healthcare that revolves around spinal health.
A Healthy Spine
Your chiropractor believes a healthy spine can lead to a healthier you. Since the spine houses the delicate nervous system that commands everything you do, keeping the spine aligned is crucial.
When you come in, your chiropractor will want to talk about your pain, your normal activities, and your medical history. Then, if it seems beneficial, a gentle spinal adjustment will be done in an open bay area on a comfortable table. Be sure to wear comfortable clothes.
You may experience far-reaching pain relief. You may also note other benefits, such as more energy, a clearer mind, a sense of well-being, better digestion or improved metabolism.
The Wellness Path
Wellness is unique to the individual. As you experience results, you and your chiropractor can talk about possible treatment options. Often, weekly 15-minute spinal adjustments are used to keep the momentum going, and to monitor your progress.
I have watched friends, family and co-workers tackle issues, such as sore elbows, stiff neck, aching shoulders and painful wrists, with the help of their chiropractors. Overall, their chiropractors worked to help them seek pain relief without prescription medications or elective surgery.
Nationwide Patient Satisfaction
Similar stories of chiropractic success are turning up around the country. The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP), a not-for-profit organization, reports on a BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders study on upper cervical chiropractic care for neck pain, headache, mid-back, and low back pain with 9 out of 10 patients saying they were very satisfied.
In another study, North Carolina patients seeking treatment for acute low back pain, from primary care physicians, chiropractors, or orthopedic surgeons, indicated a higher degree of satisfaction with chiropractic care.
