So why do you need a chiropractor in your life? It’s not for their charm – but congratulations if you snagged one of the charming ones. It’s not because they’re good listeners or have comfy tables to lay on. They can’t write prescriptions or perform surgery on you. So what are they good for? Here are a few reasons why you need a chiropractor in your life.
Natural Healing Vs. Medication
If you’re experiencing back pain, which most of the population on the planet is, your natural reaction might be to go to a medical doctor. If it’s severe chronic pain lasting for more than 3 months, then that’s probably a good idea. But if it’s consistent dull aches and pains, you have another option – a chiropractor. If you do go to a doctor, there’s a chance he’ll prescribe medication for the pain. That will sound like a good idea because you just want anything to get rid of the pain. But taking medication for the pain won’t fix the cause of the pain and you don’t want to be taking medication forever. Chiropractors offer an alternative natural healing approach that can treat the cause of the pain.
What if it’s something serious that might require surgery or medical treatment? Chiropractors will order x-rays just like doctors do. They won’t perform any chiropractic care until they do. If they see anything requiring medical attention, they’ll recommend you see a medical doctor right away. If it’s not a serious spinal condition but just normal misalignment due to daily activities, then they can begin working with you.
Yes, this idea of natural healing is so important, it’s made a second appearance. Chiropractors use your x-rays to identify where your spine has shifted out of it’s natural alignment over the years. This can be caused by incorrect posture during normal everyday activities – even sitting, standing, and lying down. Your chiropractor will adjust your spine periodically and consistently to move your spine back into its natural position. When you first visit a chiropractor, it may be several times a week. As your spine returns to its normal position over time, it can reduce to once a month or even less frequently – mainly to make sure it stays in alignment.
Back pain is so prevalent in modern society, why not cut it off at the pass. Your spine will curve unnaturally over time. You’ll save a lot of time and pain by visiting a chiropractor periodically to keep your spine in the correct position – before it ever causes pain.
When dealing with back pain, going to a chiropractor is always a good idea. If you require medical attention, they’ll refer you to a medical doctor right away. Otherwise, they’ll use natural techniques – no medication – to relieve you of your pain and keep your spine in line and healthy. You can’t beat that.
