45152378 - back ache senior manThe idea of seeking chiropractic care probably finds you massaging your back, even if it’s just in sympathy for the thousands who each year reach out to a doctor of chiropractic for lower back pain relief.

It’s natural. Lower back pain is by far the most common complaint we hear. But that perception is limiting in that it doesn’t really encompass the big picture, the sense of balance chiropractic care brings to the entire body.

Pain, whether in the lower back, the neck, or the shoulder, might bring you to the chiropractor’s door, but it’s often the sigh of genuine relief that keeps our clients coming back for more.

Here are a few points to consider:

• Chiropractic care is a natural, drug-free option that goes beyond treating the symptoms and heals what created the issue in the first place. Through posture alignment and restoring mobility of the spine, chiropractic care brings order back to a body too often at odds with its central nervous system. While the immediate effect might be pain relief, the long-term benefits include less physical and mental stress and increased immunity.

• Once performed, chiropractic care also gives you the flexibility you need to help yourself. It might be the ability, through proper posture, to sit in a chair for longer periods or the stamina to work a walking routine back into your day. Good health is a team effort; eating healthy and regularly exercising is an important part of maintaining the balance received from your doctor of chiropractic.

• Just as chiropractic care addresses other health issues from headaches to fibromyalgia, it also brings balance as you go through different phases in your life. Pediatric chiropractic care can reduce colic and encourage better sleeping through the gentle adjustments today’s doctors learn in their years of training. Geriatric care is equally effective, restoring balance and flexibility to our older clients. Recent benefits opening America’s veterans to chiropractic care speaks volumes about what we are doing on that front. And more women are realizing the benefits of regular prenatal visits, preparing their bodies for easier deliveries and faster recoveries.
