How often would you ask your MD this question?
It seems to me that everywhere I go I can hear people talking about their pain or health problems. I think we can all agree that there is definitely a healthcare need...
So does chiropractic work?
The truth is, our patients are happy, feeling healthier and more functional, and they are generally referring others patients to us. So I'd say he answer to this question, yes!
Doctor, is your clinic full of patients?
It will be as long as gravity, trauma, bad food, and mental stress exists on earth.
It will continue to be bustling with patients because our patients feel great after getting adjusted and want to continue to feel great. Just like consistently working out, eating healthy, and de-stressing, spinal maintenance is also one of those things that you have to do on a regular basis.
There are constant forces that press down upon us as we make our way through life. We endure traumas which can speed up the spinal degeneration process for many of us. Chemical and emotional stressors also play a role when it comes to total health. In our clinic we address all these causes at their source and alleviate bodily ailments as a side effect of spinal alignment and posture correction.
I would like to add that yes my clinic is buzzing... but if more people would start getting their children checked, chiropractors would see far fewer adult problems!
A spinal misalignment retained in the spine since childhood from a simple fall or even from a birth trauma can have repercussions later on in life. Just because your kid has no pain or cannot communicate that they have a spinal misalignment doesn't mean that child will not be suffering from it now or later on in life. Childhood spinal misalignments or subluxations as chiropractic calls them, contribute to many problems babies and children are suffering from today. Reflux, colic, chronic ear infections, chronic bed wetting, scoliosis, ADHD, sensory disorders, gastrointestinal issues, sleep issues, torticollis, developmental delays and many many more symptoms can be the result of a nervous system inefficiency, poor diet, or emotional turmoil.
I have been blessed to be able to participate in the ICPA's pediatric certification program where I have been trained in how to identify problems that can be corrected by chiropractic and nutrition. I am by no means a pediatrician, but I do know how to care for a pediatric spine. (I have three at home who can vouch for this!) and I do have the ability to send a pediatric patient elsewhere if they are in need of medical care.
It is amazing the results I have been seeing in my clinic the past weeks since I started back to work.
A case of a baby not having bowel movements for 8 to 10 days- after one adjustment pooped three days later, after two adjustments pooped after the visit, and after four weeks of care he was having a regular bowel movement every day!
Spinal alignment can do amazing things for people's function and health and this is why our clinic is full of happy healthy patients!!!
