Thinking about seeing a doctor of chiropractic for lower back pain? It is the most common reason people seek chiropractic care. But the perception that chiropractic care is mainly a way to address back pain 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 a doctor of chiropractic’s office but it’s often the sigh of genuine relief that keeps our clients coming back.
Chiropractic care is a natural, drug-free approach that goes beyond treating 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.
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. 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.
