For various reasons, all of us will experience joint aches and pain, and most of us have heard that a chiropractor can help. It could be a physical problem you were born with, it could be that something has happened due to an injury. Or, it simply could be signs of aging. If you’ve been wondering about seeking professional help, please don’t wait; you could be losing valuable time for treatment that could change your life. It’s time to see a chiropractor if you are suffering from any kind of joint pain; this would include back pain, neck pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, or even hand or wrist discomfort. Chiropractors specialize in the holistic approach to optimal health, so learn more about this natural way to stay healthy at any age.
If you’re still unsure if your pain should be treated with a visit to your chiropractor, let’s go over a list that could help you decide.
1. First – You’re in Pain! – This may seem like stating the obvious, but pain is the body’s way of communicating to you that something isn’t right and it needs attention! Did you know that all the complications of leprosy are due to the leper not being able to feel pain, and therefore, is injured unknowingly? These injuries are responsible for all the secondary problems. It’s a good lesson for us. And that lesson is that pain is actually a gift to motivate us to take action to get something corrected! So, why would you want to live with diminished mobility and limited flexibility? All these issues can be successfully treated by a good chiropractor.
2. Prevent Future Surgeries – Anyone who has ever had surgery, even a minor one, can tell you it isn’t a picnic, and recovery time is often drawn out due to the body’s response to anesthesia. Statistics tell us that regular treatment by a chiropractor can reduce the chances of certain surgeries by more than 35%. An example would be the lower back pain that is caused by a damaged disc. If left untreated by a chiropractor, it will almost always lead to back surgery. Why go through that if it could be prevented?
3. Prevention of Pain –Even the slightest misalignment of your joints or your spine will cause you to suffer limited mobility and flexibility, which leads to pain. Even if it’s just a nagging pain, and not the sharp variety that will bring you to your knees, ALL pain needs to be prevented, insofar as is possible. Your chiropractor can help you determine a good plan to keep you out of pain.
There are so many other reasons to visit your chiropractor on a regular basis – preventing nerve atrophy, muscle and tissue degeneration, for example. You’ll simply be amazed at the increased coordination, flexibility and overall improved health you’ll enjoy by regular chiropractic treatments and an easy exercise regimen. The stress on your joints, your back, your neck, and your hips will decrease. Have you seen older folks having a difficult time walking? They can’t even stand up straight, and sometimes are aided by a cane or a care-giver. It can’t always be prevented, but we can suggest that much of this is preventable by participating in regular care by a trusted chiropractor.
