Can Chiropractic Really Help Me?
How Chiropractic Helps Fort Wayne Patients
Chiropractic has been helping families improve their health since 1895, when its founder D.D. Palmer delivered the first chiropractic adjustment. Palmer found that by doing certain adjustments, people were relieved of many symptoms, sometimes the relief was profound. Due to Chiropractic’s effectiveness, it has become the largest alternative healthcare profession in the world and serves over 30 million people annually. Chiropractic basically deals with the communication of the nervous system. The nervous system controls the rest of the body, including the muscles and skeletal system. All body systems need to work together for optimal health and vitality. Chiropractic is about whole body function.
What a Chiropractor Can Help
Back pain is the most common reason someone visits a chiropractor and with good cause. This is because the primary focus of Chiropractic is helping the body function at its peak state, free of pain and discomfort. When compared to family physician directed care, Chiropractic care results in better outcome and function for patients. (Spine Journal, Dec. 2010) Yes, Chiropractic can really help you function better! Even better, many patients find what they like about Chiropractic is they often gain more energy, sleep better at night and report having improved overall well-being and vitality!
Simply put, asking chiropractic to just relieve back pain is like asking NASA to go to the moon and nothing more. We’ve gone there and will do it again. The purpose of Chiropractic is much more than just relieving back pain. Chiropractic is about optimal health and maximizing your life’s potential!
Causes of Back Pain
The secret to Chiropractic and to your success is identifying the cause of your problem. Suffering from pain isn’t caused from a lack of pain killers. Pain is a symptom indicating that something bigger is going on. Pain is your body crying – STOP! Identifying the cause of your problem is the first step in your road to recovery. The second step is to identify the triggers that cause your body to stress.
Stress is the leading cause of all illness and disease. The three main areas of stress are physical, chemical and emotional or mental. Physical stress can come from a physical activity or injury. Most people recognize physical triggers like Auto Accidents and Sports Injuries, but mental stressors and chemical stressors can put an equivalent toll on the body. Every emotion has a physical response. If you’re happy, you smile and your entire body’s physiology changes. However, if you’re stressed from work, a relationship, or from driving down a busy road, your body pays the price. Chemical stressors like eating unhealthy food create a similar physical response as your body attempts to detoxify. Stress triggers come in all forms and Chiropractic is about teaching stress reduction through a wellness lifestyle.
What’s the Alternative to Chiropractic?
Yes, there are times for physical therapy, surgeries, and if you think something is broken you should be in the emergency room. For general optimal health, Chiropractic is the profession of choice! Together, you and your doctor of Chiropractic can work to balance your nervous system, drop years of built up muscle tension from your shoulders, and help you identify and modify lifestyle factors that act as triggers. Living at peak health is our goal for you.
