What Is Chiropractic?

Manual Adjustment_8490Chiropractic care is like building a house – certain things have to happen in a particular order in order for everything to stand strong and work correctly.

Many people go to a chiropractor because they are in pain.

If you are in pain when you come into our office, the first objective is to help you feel better.

Most people are under the assumption that if they don’t feel pain there is nothing wrong with them and could be under the misconception that there is nothing wrong. Unfortunately, pain is a very poor indicator of health. In fact, pain and other symptoms frequently only appear after a disease or other condition has become advanced.

For example, consider a cavity in your tooth. Does it hurt when it first develops or only after it has become serious? How about heart disease? Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear. When you begin chiropractic care, pain is also the first symptom to disappear, even though much of the underlying condition remains.

Whatever your body’s issue is, pain is usually the last thing to appear.

If all the chiropractor does is reduce the pain and stop there, the chances of the condition recurring are much greater. In order to prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms may be gone.

Once your body has fully healed, routine chiropractic care can help ensure that your physical problems do not return and keep your body in optimal condition. Just like continuing an exercise program and eating well in order to sustain the benefits of exercise and proper diet, it is necessary to continue chiropractic care to ensure the health of your nerve and musculoskeletal systems.

How often you get checked depends on your health goals as well as your other lifestyle choices.

When you make routine chiropractic care a part of your lifestyle, you avoid many of the aches, pains and health challenges that so many people suffer through–your joints will last longer and you will be able to engage in more of the activities you love.
