Chiropractic Care: Much More Than Back Pain Relief

hands-grasping-sun-sq-300“Oh, my back hurts! I’m going to see a chiropractor!” This common sentiment is understandable as many people equate chiropractic care with back pain relief.

Of course, chiropractic addresses back pain effectively, but it does so much more for your health and your body.

A Spotlight on the Spine

You might wonder why chiropractors focus on the spine. The reason is simple: the spine helps your nervous system—your body—heal. Back pain could often indicate a problem somewhere else in your body. It’s a symptom of an underlying issue. So, as chiropractors, we dig deeper to pinpoint and address the root cause of your discomfort.

Healthy Nervous System, Healthy Body

Going beyond back and neck pain relief, chiropractic care seeks to promote overall health by focusing on your nervous system. When your nervous system is functioning at its peak that can lead to improvements in many areas of your health like better sleep quality, enhanced digestion, better mood, and so much more.

Kaleb’s Story: A Journey of Transformation

Every day, we’re honoured to impact patients’ lives through our natural care. One such patient is Kaleb, who struggled with severe anxiety. His primary reason for seeking our care is that he didn’t want to get on medication. Through an examination, we found that Kaleb’s anxiety attacks were due to an issue in his spine.

After providing chiropractic care, Kaleb experienced relief almost instantly and no longer suffers from anxiety. Perhaps best of all, he’s so happy that he doesn’t have to rely on medication. Knowing that our care helped change his life is incredibly rewarding.

Dispelling Misconceptions About Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic sometimes gets a bad rap largely due to sensationalized portrayals of adjustments on social media—e.g., a chiropractor cracking someone’s neck and making a loud sound. People watching these videos may come to the conclusion that chiropractic is scary and dangerous—not true at all!

Let’s dispel the myth that chiropractic is unsafe. Not only is chiropractic care safe, but it’s also remarkably effective. And consider this: chiropractor has one of the lowest costs of malpractice insurance from any doctor in the country. A medical doctor’s malpractice insurance is 10 times that of a chiropractor’s!

It’s also important to know that chiropractors undergo rigorous training and adhere to stringent standards of practice.

Choosing the Conservative Route First

These days it seems like there’s a pill for every ill. Instead of first turning to medication or surgery, why not seek conservative, natural approaches like chiropractic care? There are no side effects, and adjustments are gentle. We don’t “rack and crack” people here! Now there are times when medication or surgery is needed, but we recommend chiropractic first, drugs second and surgery last.

The good news is that most of the time, if we choose something that’s safe and effective and allows you to heal naturally the outcome is dramatically better, and it’s a whole lot safer for you!
