Chiropractors treat many problems

     Chiropractors can help with a long list of issues without the use of pain medications; some of which are:
  • Headaches
  • Low back pain
  • Arthritis
  • Neck pain
  • Scoliosis
  • Fibromyalgia

     In fact, having a chiropractor treat you can also keep you from having surgery in some cases; as well as, not becoming addicted to pain medications. 

What chiropractors do in treating pain

     Chiropractors use spinal manipulation to treat pain. By aligning the spine and joints of the body diminishes pain and the body can heal itself. A majority of chiropractors will adjust the spine with a quick sudden force to realign the spine and or the joints. 

These adjustments provide the following benefits:
  • Less pain
  • More mobility 
  • Greater range of motion

What to expect on your first appointment

1. Before the chiropractor does any manipulation of your spine or joints, he or she will start out with a detailed medical history.

2. Many chiropractors also use x-rays and or MRIs to help diagnose the issue. 

3. The chiropractor may use heat or ice on you before and or after manipulation as well. 

4. Besides manipulations chiropractors also counsel healthy habits

5. A majority of chiropractors also counsel patients to eat a healthy diet and lose weight if they need to. 

6. A healthy diet helps aid the body in healing itself by fuelling the repair of the body through the cells, cartilage, muscle, and bone repair as well as fuelling the immune system. 

7. Daily exercise also helps keeps the body healthy as well as maintaining weight. 

8. People who eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly to maintain weight are less injury-prone than those who do not. 

     Chiropractic care is a healthy alternative to narcotics for pain and will treat not only the pain but the person as a whole with counseling on diet and exercise. 

Will my health insurance cover chiropractors

     That will depend on your particular health insurance plan. While many health insurers are covering chiropractic, it does require that you have the right plan. The only way to know if “your” insurance covers chiropractic is to call your insurance and ask them. If your insurance does not cover chiropractic, you may want to think about paying out of pocket. Paying out of pocket is cheaper than addiction to narcotics and or losing your job due to back or joint pain and immobility. What do you have to lose? Give chiropractic a try today.
