Is it Time to Seek a Chiropractor?


What is your first reaction when you feel discomfort or pain? Do you take time to assess the pain, question the root cause, or brainstorm ways in which you can relieve it while helping prevent a future reoccurrence? Or, are you like the many who reach for that pain-reliever and call it a day?


Living in a fast-paced world in which immediate solutions are expected, we tend to treat our health in the same way, whether it solves the problem long-term or not.


Pain shouldn’t be something we need to continuously mask nor slap on a bandaid for.


Pain is manageable in various ways...and it doesn’t always require a pill with it’s unpleasant side effects.


Did you know that chiropractic is one of the most commonly used (and oldest) alternative methods for pain management and is considered SAFE and EFFECTIVE!


And What is Chiropractic Care


Chiropractic care is a service provided by a licensed care professional whose focus is helping the body restore itself to good health with the use of manual therapy such as spinal manipulation, exercise, and even nutritional counseling.


Why Not Just Treat the Symptoms?


Physical symptoms are our body’s way of alerting us that it needs attention STAT. When we ignore our body’s signals, it is like ignoring the “Check Engine” light on your car...it will only go so far until it leaves us stranded somewhere without knowing want happened. However, when we take the time to notice the symptoms and assess where those symptoms are coming from, then it can be easier to not only uncover the root cause of the problem, but also find the best long-term solution and possibly prevent it from happening in the future.


Some of the most common symptoms that indicate the body is headed towards more serious disease include:


-chronic fatigue

-weakness

-pain

-constant cold/flu infections


What Types of Diseases Benefit from Chiropractic Care


Chiropractic care can be very effective in treating diseases such as:


-Arthritis

-Chronic fatigue syndrome

-Fibromyalgia

-Sciatica

-Scoliosis


In addition to helping alleviate conditions such as:


-neck and shoulder pain

-infant colic

-gastrointestinal problems

-ear infections

-asthma

-sports injuries


If you are experiencing any of the diseases or conditions listed above, then it’s probably time to acknowledge that “Check Engine” light and set up your chiropractic appointment to get to the root cause of the problem.
