Can I benefit from chiropractic?
There are two kinds of people in the world; people who ‘have’ experienced back pain, and people who ‘haven’t’ experienced back pain.
It’s analogous to the old; “There are two kinds of computer users in the world, those who have experienced a hard drive crash, and those who haven’t.”
If you’ve ever lost your computer data and you didn’t have your information saved on a backup disk or on the Cloud it was a traumatic experience for you, and consequently, you always ensured you had your information backed-up. Everyone who has ever experienced this is now nodding their head in agreement and smiling at the thought of their properly backed-up computer – probably on disk AND on the Cloud.
You know how it is.
Consumers today spend tens, or hundreds of dollars per year to back-up their important computer data, while corporations spend thousands or even millions of dollars annually to ensure their computer data is secure and backed-up. So, if we’re willing to do all that for the information we store on computers, why won’t we put a similar amount of effort into keeping our spine in good health?
And let’s don’t forget that we only have one spine and that they are impossible to replace. In this case, creating a computerized back-up just isn’t going to work.
Which leaves us with only two options;
- Treat our spine any way we want and just hope it never gives out
- Treat our spine in a way to keep it in good health for 100+ years.
Did you know that chiropractic care is the world’s fastest growing natural form of healthcare that is drug and surgery free? Millions of people visit their local chiropractor each day for a range of health issues. As more and more people make active decisions to live healthier life and to turn away from harmful medications, we see the rise of natural health modalities such as chiropractic. The industry has an annual growth rate of approximately 5.3% year on year which is great. This shows their is active demand in the community for natural chiropractic services.
The Doctor of Chiropractic aims to help you body heal itself so you can be as healthy as you were born to be. The chiropractic adjustment removes unwanted pressure and stress from along your spinal column. This helps you to move and bend easier while also helping your nervous system to communicate more effectively with your brain.
Made up of 24 independent vertebrae, your spinal column is what allows your body to move, twist, and bend, allowing you to accomplish everything you’ve set out to accomplish on any given day. A properly functioning spine also encases and protects the central nervous system which is in charge of controlling and coordinating every muscle, tissue and organ in the human body.
Joint dysfunction or misalignment (called subluxation by Chiropractors) can result in pain, discomfort, decreased ability and range of movement, and many other symptoms.
Only a Doctor of Chiropractic can reduce the accumulated damage done to your spinal column which may have taken years to deteriorate or become misaligned, and in many cases, fully restore your back function.
But even better than visiting your chiro to receive treatments post-injury, is to take a proactive approach and visit your Chiropractor for treatments that are designed to halt problems before they become too serious, and reverse any existing spinal damage.
