Posted on: July 24th, 2013 by admin 1 Comment

Chiropractor serviceGoing to the chiropractor might seem like something that isn’t essential. At least upon first glance. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, regular chiropractic care can have a direct impact on your overall health. This form of holistic therapy improves the health of your bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. But it can also affect the nervous system and how your organs function.

Several recent studies indicate that adjustments can treat neck pain and problems better than prescription medications. This is excellent news because drugs are only a band-aid for the problem. Adjustments can actually fix the problem that’s causing you pain in the first place!

By reducing your dependence on medications, you improve your overall health. While prescription drugs are good at relieving pain, they can carry negative side effects like nausea, vomiting, and constipation. Tolerance can also develop over time, which means the drug’s effectiveness is reduced, so patients require a higher dose. People can even become dependent on these medications as a result. (more…)

How to Choose a Chiropractor

Posted on: July 3rd, 2013 by admin No Comments

When you suffer from chronic  pain, especially in your back, neck, or shoulders, you likely seek out any sort of treatment that can be of help. That’s why so many people choose to see a chiropractor to get symptom relief. It’s often the only thing that actually provides relief and allows them to get back to a normal level of functioning.

But what do these professionals do, exactly? To be specific, they are doctors who are trained in how the joints and spine function and know how to adjust and manipulate the spine to provide pain relief and proper body structure. It’s a relatively safe practice that doesn’t involve surgery or prescription medications, which greatly reduces the chances of negative side effects.

When you decide you want to see a chiropractor, you need to follow a few guidelines. That is, you need to know what to ask them in order to weed out the good from the bad. To get a good pool of practitioners to choose from, ask your friends and family if they have any suggestions first. This should provide you with a solid starting point.

The next step is to schedule a consultation. Meeting face to face can provide you with the peace of mind you need to fully trust a practitioner. Plus, it gives you the opportunity to ask questions that can shed light on whether or not he or she is right for you. (more…)
