    Why Should I Go See A Chiropractor

    Doctors of chiropractic, or DC’s have been around for about 100 years, these alternative health care doctors provide a different option, or opposite type of treatment than mainstream medicine.  Conventional medicine has turned into long wait times in doctor’s offices and you are lucky you get to spend five minutes with the doctor.  The reported average doctor visit for conventional medicine today is seven minutes; which is about enough time to ask a few questions and recommend a prescription medication.  The average follow up visit to a chiropractic office is approximately 15 minutes, a mini history will be taken, a treatment will be provided and no medication will be prescribed.

    Lots of people today want to get instant, quick fix results to fix their pain, inflammation, allergies and stomach problems and they are getting medications to manage these symptoms.  Managing a symptom is very different than healing the underlying cause of the problem. A DC seeks to find out the underlying cause of your symptoms by evaluating if the spine, nervous system and nutritional deficiencies to determine if they are contributing factors.  If a person is alternative health minded at all then a chiropractor is a great choice for a variety of different health conditions.  The body is meant to be able to heal itself, and chiropractic patients experience this everyday whether it is for neck and back pain, headaches, digestive complaints, fibromyalgia or other health complaints. 

    The nervous system in the master controller of the body, and the spine protects part of the nervous system which is the spinal cord.  Research of health conditions has shown that anything can cause anything in the body, for example a misaligned vertebra in the lower back may cause problems with bowel and bladder function.  DC’s specifically treat the spine and nervous system with a wide range of modalities such as chiropractic adjustments, cold laser therapy, massage, and nutritional therapy.  There is no other health care professional that can naturally causes a change in the spine and surrounding nerves the way a chiropractor can.

    When asking yourself what reason you would have to see a chiropractic doctor the answer is easy; any health condition that may be related to problems in the spine and nervous system.  Problems usually happen in the body because of long time abuse, we don’t just get diabetes or migraine headaches overnight.  These alternative doctors look to find the underlying cause of ill health and help you fix it; this is the only way your body can overcome and heal the problem for good.  Common conditions seen by chiropractors are:

    • Migraine Headaches

    • Weakness
    • Arthritis
    • Osteoporosis
    • Sleep Issues

    These alternative health care doctors only use natural therapies to help enhance your body to heal and repair what needs to be fixed.  Natural treatments can take anywhere from one week to six months to see results because with this therapy you are building a foundation of health and not just managing symptoms.  This is like an investment to optimizing your health; not just making you feel better but also helping you be better.  Over 10 percent of the population seeks out doctors of chiropractic for health conditions involving neck and back pain.  Five percent of Americans go to these holistic doctors and use the as their primary care, so for any type of symptom or sickness, they choose to see a DC, instead of a medical doctor.  Besides just treating the health complaint you are coming in with, many people may experience these other benefits:
