When chiropractors observe that chiropractic care has helped people with a wide variety of health problems, some mistakenly think that means that we treat disease. However, nothing could be further from the truth.
The fact is, we locate and help reduce nervous system disturbances (usually along the spine) that interfere with your ability to be fully you. Being fully you includes everything from bending, walking, and sleeping to breathing, fighting infection and healing a cut.
When the integrity of your nervous system is revived, your body is more likely to work as it was designed. For some, that capacity returns quickly. For others, it's slower. For a few who have neglected their health, progress can be so slow as to even appear ineffective.
Please don't blame chiropractic when results come slowly. Likewise, don't credit chiropractic when success comes quickly. It's your body that does the healing. What you bring to the table is actually more important than what we do on the table.
What are you hoping to get from your chiropractic care? Less pain? Less tightness? Or more health? More movement? Or more life?
Many people begin care because they have an ache or a pain that they want silenced. In other words, they start out wanting less. As they learn what chiropractic care is (and what it isn't) they discover it could offer more. More of what they really want. Participating in that discovery is one of the greatest joys of our practice.
Some don't see the implication between a proactive (more) and a reactive (less) approach to their health. Instead, they prefer to come in only when they have obvious symptoms. No worries. We love them just as much. Everyone shows up at a different place on this journey of self discovery. We're merely here to serve, whether they want less or more.
