We hear it all the time: "I've tried everything else and nothing seems to help, so I’m trying chiropractic.”
Although we’re happy these customers eventually found our clinic, it’s frustrating to know they first went through testing, treatments, and healthcare dollars with no solutions. For the patient, it’s even more frustrating to have lost hope.
Chiropractic care isn’t a one-step miraculous change in your health. But with consistent care, a patient often makes leaps and bounds in the recovery process — and relatively quickly, too.
Should chiropractic care be your first treatment choice?
After treatment, we usually hear this regret: "I should have chosen chiropractic care right away.” Hindsight is 20/20, but as chiropractic care enters the mainstream, it’s becoming the first choice for many patients and healthcare providers.
Here’s why: Chiropractic is one of the least invasive, yet most impactful forms of healthcare for everything from chronic pain — which afflicts 100 million Americans — to misdiagnosed neurologic conditions.
Chiropractic is one of the least invasive, yet most impactful forms of healthcare.
With a proper evaluation, a chiropractor formulates treatment that’s specific to the individual. When done properly, every outcome is positive.
Chiropractic care differs from other healthcare forms because our treatment is tailored specifically to your spine and nervous system. It’s not a textbook "diagnosis" with a one-size-fits-all cure. The human body and its conditions are complex. As chiropractors, we impact the function of your body. We go beyond chasing the symptom itself. This is an important difference: Our specificity helps you feel healthier, faster.
Learning from Jim McMahon's chronic pain
Former NFL player Jim McMahon recently told a story of decades-long debilitating headaches, vision issues, and speech problems. He had suffered so much that he became suicidal. McMahon tried endless testing and treatment, with no change in his condition.
One day, he tried a New York chiropractor, who analyzed his spine and discovered that the player’s neck was badly misaligned. This prevented his cerebral spinal fluid from flowing to the brain—like a dam of toxins building up in his head.
After some highly specific treatments, McMahon felt remarkably better. With successive chiropractic treatments, his speech and vision returned to normal. If only he had tried chiropractic care 20 years before! McMahon could have lived with a higher quality of life for decades.
Saving frustration, time, and money with a chiropractic-first approach
Let’s recap: Chiropractic care should be the first choice for debilitating health problems like headaches, soreness, and others—not the last. Treatment can save endless frustration. The function of your nervous system is important to the wellbeing of your body. That’s where chiropractors thrive: In fixing the system that controls your muscle movement, organ function, and pain perception. A healthy nervous system has a profound effect on your body.
