When Should I Go to a Chiropractor?

Dr. Heather McCarter - December Issue

There are many reasons that one would choose to go to a chiropractor...with the biggest reason being PAIN. When people think of chiropractors they think of doctors that fix neck and back pain, headaches, leg pain, and numbness. What people don't think of is that chiropractic care is based on healing patients of their conditions by removing the internal interference to their nervous system, thus allowing the body to heal itself. What this means is that chiropractic care can help a person with a variety of health conditions by working with the body to heal the body. In other words, you don't have to be in pain to go to your chiropractor. You have to be willing to explore other health options outside the medical model in order to work with your body to help keep it running smoothly.

So, when should you go to the chiropractor? Like I stated earlier, if you are in pain then chiropractic can indeed help remove the interference causing that pain. If you are not in pain but simply want increased vitality and health, then you could choose a different approach to your overall healthcare. You can choose to go to your chiropractor to have regular chiropractic check-ups just like you would the dentist, the eye doctor, and your medical doctor. By keeping your spine aligned, you help your body stay on track. Your body is governed by your nervous system-all organs, muscles, immune systems, and bodily functions rely on your nerves and brain to communicate. Keeping your spine aligned allows the nerves and the body to stay in check and communicate efficiently...keeping you well.

Most people go when they are feeling discomfort and follow the designated period of care the doctor recommends until they are "out of pain." Others choose to schedule appointments monthly, quarterly, or every six months in order to stay aligned and feeling great. Chiropractic care helps you stay healthy-reducing stress, increasing energy, preventing arthritic degeneration, increasing range of motion and mobility, and most of all, it keeps your body functioning at its optimal potential.

You go to the dentist to prevent tooth decay...you go to the eye doctor so your eyes don't get worse...you have regular medical check-ups to make sure your organs are functioning properly...why not go to the chiropractor to prevent spinal degeneration and improve your overall well-being...Naturally?
