    What Is Chiropractic Care and Will It Work For Me?

    Over 10 percent of Americans go to see chiropractors in their lifetime for ailments such as neck pain, sciatica, digestive problems, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia and other health conditions.  Chiropractic care involves evaluation of the spine, extremities and nervous system to determine what might be the underlying cause of a patient’s health condition.  These alternative doctors look to give the body what it needs in order to heal and repair itself, to help eliminate aches, pains, digestive problems, fatigue, excess weight and more.  The body is able to heal itself, think about what happens when someone cuts their finger; put a band aid on it and it heals up in a couple of days.  The body has the innate ability to fix health problems that threaten its well being, it has an inborn control center that when healthy; is able to do this day in and day out.

    Research has shown that people seeking out chiropractic care for certain health conditions, 80 percent of them feel a positive improvement in their condition.  This type of alternative health care involves only natural, drug free, non surgical wellness treatment to enhance the patient’s own body to heal and repair itself.  With chiropractic care there is no synthetic, forced, chemical reaction that causes some kind of change in a symptom; the body cannot function properly when constantly taking in toxic drugs on a daily basis as prescribed by the medical profession.

    There is no other health care profession that directly affects the health of an individual by adjusting the spine and balancing out the nervous system.  Mainstream medicine works well for crisis care, when you are in a life threatening situation our healthcare system is second to none.  On the other hand mainstream medical care does not work at all for long term wellness care, and medical doctors would be the first to admit it.  There is a disconnect in our country between health care and sick care; the system will look after you if you have a serious health condition, but you are on your own if you are seeking to optimize your health as you age.

    For the small percentage of people who have received chiropractic care for aches, pains and other ailments and not received any positive results, research has shown the key reasons for this are:

    • The chiropractor may have misdiagnosed the patient’s condition and as a result the desired outcome was not achieved.  This happens in every health care profession, commonly for chiropractic the condition does not get worse; it just does not get better and the side effects are significantly less than mainstream medical care.
    •  The chiropractor may not be using the right technique or modalities for that particular patient.  Every patient is different on now they respond to treatment, there are many different kinds of techniques and one should try them all to see what works best. 
    • The patient may have an underlying condition that is hidden and the chiropractor did not find it, or did not look for it.  Many people these days have an underlying immune challenge or toxicity and these can show up as symptoms such as pain, inflammation, dizziness, digestive problems, allergies, and headaches.  Research has shown that over 50 percent of the American population has parasites, yeast, metal and chemical toxicities that are overwhelming the body’s ability to keep itself healthy.

    Chiropractic care can treat a wide variety of different health issues but they are just one provider of your health.  If someone is not responding well to this alternative treatment, seek out 5 or more of these doctors and see if you connect with their philosophy and treatment style.  If you still are not responding then it is possible that chiropractic care may not be right for you and most likely they can refer you to someone who can help.
