But I'm "Healthy" - Why Should I See A Chiropractor?


If you're wondering why even relatively healthy people go to see chiropractors, read on to understand why chiropractic services are so important in local communities.

Hidden Damage

Car accidents and other traumatic impact often cause damage to the spine or core that gets worse over time. In the beginning, there may be no symptoms, but over the years, the injury victim starts to feel the impact in his or her back, neck or limbs. Chiropractic care can be effective in minimizing or even eliminating these problems. When someone has clues that they are experiencing symptoms from something that may have happened years in the past, going to a doctor early can help to prevent worse conditions later.

Signs of Aging

As we age, our bodies also deteriorate slowly. Natural aging, combined with a traumatic impact, can cause things like herniated discs, incorrectly aligned vertebrae or other problems that, again, can have tricky, subtle symptoms such as:

  • headaches
  • pain or tingling in the spine
  • obstruction of mobility

Chiropractors can look at all of these issues to treat the spine and get it to work better, for a better quality of life.

Holistic Health

There are also a lot of arguments that better spinal health can help someone's immune system and central nervous system work better every day. The idea is that the body is vitally interconnected -- that one system has a lot to do with another, and that by increasing the body's capacity for movement, you're also increasing its overall vitality and life force.

A Range of Services

Chiropractic doctors also often provide other kinds of holistic services along with spinal care. These may include acupuncture, which has been known to help with a wide variety of conditions, as well as therapeutic massage, which can rejuvenate muscles and tissues in the body. In addition, a chiropractor can help with general health consulting, or provide a range of natural or homeopathic options that are not "cures" in the sense that pharmaceutical medicine is, for emergency treatment, but rather, "helpers" for keeping someone healthy, instead of just treating them when they are sick.

All of these services work together to promote the kind of overall health and wellness that can really make a difference in someone's life -- even if that person doesn't see themselves as "sick" or "needing a doctor."

Think about using chiropractic care and other related services (at offices like Healing Hands Chiropractic and Massage) to feel better each day.

Learning All About The Benefits Of Chiropractic Adjustments

Hi there, my name is Georgette Limerick. I am excited to share my knowledge about chiropractic procedures with you today. I was a softball player through middle school, high school and college. I often stood on the pitcher's mound and lobbed the ball over the plate. The constant movement of my shoulder pulled the ligaments and joint out of alignment. Eventually, I developed an immense amount of pain throughout my neck, back and shoulder. The pain even shot down my arm to my fingertips, making it difficult to work at an acceptable pace. I visited a chiropractor several times to see if some precise adjustments would help. After the third visit, I was convinced the procedures healed me. My site will explore the benefits of chiropractic procedures in detail. Thanks for coming by.
