Published on January 3, 20175 Things You Should Know About Chiropractic Care
Getting great results with chiropractic care? Excellent! You join the millions who have benefited from an all-natural approach to better health. But there’s a lot more that’s possible. Here are a few things you might not know about chiropractic care.
1. There are no age limits.
Chiropractic care isn’t just for adults—it’s for everyone who wants to live and feel better, from newborn infants to seniors and everyone in between. Adjusting techniques are tailored to the size, weight and each individual’s specific spinal issue.
2. The first sign of a problem isn’t always pain.
A lot of patients come to us because they’re in pain. But even if your pain is relatively new, the root cause of it could be weeks, months or even years old. Why? Because your body is so adaptive it can take a long time before it runs out of adaptive capacity and symptoms appear.
3. We’re not magic—your body is.
While we love it when our patients call our techniques “magic,” you should know that our methods are simply tools to help your body express true health and wellness. Our job is to get your nervous system functioning optimally so that your body can heal and self-regulate itself without the need for drugs or surgery.
4. Adjustments are unique, just like you.
The beauty of chiropractic care is that we’re able to tailor and create an individual care plan just for your specific needs. This helps us target your problem areas and work on uncovering the root cause of the issue.
5. Optimal results are a team effort.
If you feel great after being adjusted, that’s wonderful. But our hope for patients is that their quest for health doesn’t stop there. The best results seem to occur when we do our job (locate and reduce nervous system interference) and you do your job (better nutrition, proper rest and exercise, reducing stress and keeping your visits).
