Who Can Be Helped by Chiropractic?
From years of hands on Chiropractic experience, patient feedback, and what has been shown in several major studies, almost anyone can benefit from visiting a good Chiropractor. When is comes to back pain, there isn't much else that has been shown to be just as effective as the traditional approach to pain relief, which has side-effects since a large part of the pain relief relies on medication, and in many cases, strong prescription medication. From athletes to office workers, anyone suffering from chronic, or acute back pain can benefit greatly from non-invasive non-surgical Chiropractic care.
These are the top-three types of chiropractic patients
In my 15 years of practice as a chiropractor in New York City, I have helped countless patients get rid of pain, ranging from mild to immobilizing, and improve their overall health and quality of life. I have treated patients of many different age groups and backgrounds, and have come to the conclusion that almost all of them fall within 3 categories of people who benefit from chiropractic. Patients who seek out chiropractic treatment are part of the following groups:
People who suffer from chronic pain.
Many of my patients have been living with pain for long periods of time, and usually assumed it would go away on its own. Persistent pain can get in the way of daily activities (such as work, exercise, recreation, family life, etc.) and might cause some to turn to painkillers or other temporary relief methods. Those looking for relief without resorting to drugs or back surgery, as well as those who are dissatisfied with short-term pain relief, seek chiropractic treatment in hopes of achieving a pain-free life.
People who really want to know the root cause of their pain.
Patients who suffer from chronic or occasional pain often times want to learn why and how their problem came about. These patients want to take the time to meet with an expert in order to gather as much knowledge about their bodies as possible and understand the reasons behind their symptoms while finding the root cause of their condition. In addition to treating the resulting pain, they want to eradicate the base problem and learn how to avoid future injuries by becoming skilled at understanding the workings of their bodies and how chiropractic can help them stay healthy and pain-free.
People who enjoy a healthy lifestyle.
I also see many patients who are looking to prevent pain and injuries, rather than treat an existing condition. These patients are well-versed in the benefits of chiropractic and how regular adjustments can assist in attaining optimum health. These patients want to give their bodies the best possible conditions for good health and well-being. They incorporate chiropractic as part of a healthy standard of living that typically also includes regular exercise and proper nutrition. These patients want to take an extra step and ensure they will feel and look their best and be less susceptible to future injury as well.
Chiropractic is a safe, effective, powerful tool against pain, both as a holistic treatment and as a valuable preventive measure. Anyone who might be part of the above groups will certainly benefit from the pain-relieving properties of chiropractic treatment as well as its importance in achieving and maintaining overall health and wellness.
