Is Your Body On Track? Your Chiropractor Will Know
By Sandy Schroeder
Sometimes we can be very intuitive about our health and wellness. Everything may be working, but we may sense that something is a little bit off. It could be the way we move, the way we react, or just the way we feel.
Following up on that suspicion could be a wise choice to prevent small twinges from becoming major problems in areas such as the back, neck, shoulders, arms, legs or feet.
Seeing your chiropractor could be an easy way to solve the mystery and pinpoint problems. The local clinic of The Joint Chiropractic specializes in helping people seek pain relief, and learn healthy prevention practices. They see everyone from teens to seniors on a daily basis.
See Your Chiropractor
When you come in, bring your questions and be prepared to get to know your chiropractor. First, there will be a discussion about your issues. Then your chiropractor will want to know about your normal activities and your medical history.
Pain in the back, neck, knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows, wrists and feet can be caused by joint restrictions. The restrictions can create dysfunction, lack of motion, nerve irritation, and acceleration of degenerative changes. The pain may respond well to chiropractic adjustments.
If an adjustment seems beneficial it will be done in an open bay area on a special table. The adjustment is accomplished through the gentle application of a targeted movement to improve motion of the body’s spinal column and extremities. It may relieve your pain and provide other benefits, such as more mental clarity, better sleep, improved energy, digestion or metabolism.
You and your chiropractor can assess the results of your adjustment and put together an ongoing plan of treatment. Seeing your chiropractor on an ongoing basis will allow him to monitor you for any future twinges, and provide good prevention advice.
Widespread Patient Satisfaction
In the last 20 years, chiropractic use has tripled in the U.S. I have watched this happen in my own circle of friends, family and co-workers. Whenever back, neck or knee pain showed up, their chiropractors helped them find answers. For others, there were work issues with posture, stress, and long hours. Again, their chiropractor stepped up to help them sort it out. For parents with busy schedules and active kids, their chiropractors were on hand every time they were needed.
If this sounds like a resource you could use, stop by The Joint Chiropractic clinic in your community and find out more. An affordable care program eliminates the need for insurance. Weekend and evening hours make visits convenient, and walk-in visits are welcome.
