Chiropractic May Help You Get a Grip On Your Pain
By Sandy Schroeder
If pain seems to be a constant companion in your life, settling into your neck, back or other parts of your body, it may be time to get a better grip on the situation.
Most of us tend to gulp a pain pill, take a hot shower and just keep going if we can, as our daily tasks wait for our attention. But it may be time for you to check out your pain and take corrective steps with a visit to The Joint Chiropractic, where wellness is an everyday process.
Putting Pain in Its Place
Licensed chiropractors have the experience to help you sort out your pain and seek solutions.
Starting with a focus on your spine, your chiropractor will use a spinal adjustment to correct any misalignments that you may have. Your chiropractor believes a healthy spine may have all sorts of healthy benefits for you.
The goal will be to find pain relief without pain pills or surgery. This approach to pain has been so successful that it is now known as the “conservative first choice,” and is the majority choice for most Americans, ahead of pain pills or surgery.
A Spinal Adjustment
With the use of a spinal adjustment, pain relief may be achieved in the neck, back, sciatica or other joints. Many patients also say they experience new energy, better digestion and improved metabolism.
As you pursue ending your pain, working with your chiropractor to develop a treatment plan, you may elect to do weekly 15-minute sessions, or consider monthly visits. At the same time your chiropractor will review your schedule and may have suggestions for shorter working hours, use of stress reduction tactics, or a diet with healthier foods to lose a few pounds.
According to the White Paper, Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, 2016 – “Chiropractic, A Safer Strategy than Opiates,” patient satisfaction with chiropractic care is well established.
A BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders study on upper cervical chiropractic care for neck pain, headache, mid-back, and low back pain concludes that 9.1 out of 10 patients indicate a very high level of patient satisfaction.
In another study of North Carolina patients seeking treatment for acute low back pain from various health care professionals (primary care physicians, chiropractors, orthopedic surgeons, etc.) researchers found that those who visited a chiropractor had a higher degree of satisfaction in the care they received.
