Question: How Long Will I Need Chiropractic
Answer: Spinal problems,
neglected since early childhood, may require ongoing
supportive care of optimum spinal function. These
long standing problems are often associated with
muscle weakness, soft tissue damage, and degenerative
changes to the spine.
Most patients find that periodic chiropractic checkups help keep them in tip-top
shape. Those who are active, have stressful jobs, or want to be their very
best, find that a schedule of preventive visits are helpful in the maintenance
of good health.
Some patients seek chiropractic care only when their ache or pain becomes unbearable.
While this style of “crisis management” is usually more costly
and time-consuming, our office stands ready to help all patients, regardless
of their health goals. How long you decide to benefit from chiropractic care
is always up to you.
Question: Can I Speed the Healing Process?
Answer: While there aren’t any shortcuts to speed
your body’s natural healing process, there’s a lot you can do
to give yourself the best chance of a quick recovery.
Learn proper sitting and lifting methods. Specific exercises may be suggested
to help re-train the muscles that support your spine.
Proper rest is an important aspect of the healing process, too. Get the appropriate
amount of rest your body needs and avoid sleeping on your stomach.
During the healing process, proper nutrition is more important than ever. Make
sure you eat balanced meals, and if you’re overweight, now would be a
good time to slim down and reduce unnecessary stresses to your spine.
Perhaps most important of all, keep your appointments and follow your chiropractic
doctor’s recommendations for optimum results.
Question: Am I Too Old For Chiropractic Care?
Answer: More and more people are consulting chiropractic
doctors, especially in their later years. With growing concerns about over-medication
and the side effects of combining various prescription drugs, safe, natural
chiropractic are is growing in popularity.
Restoring better spinal function can help improve mobility, vitality, endurance,
and appetite. Many patients report improvement with arthritic symptoms and
other chronic ailments often associated with the aging process.
