The Value of Chiropractic Care

I know I haven’t been blogging for a long time but thought since I had some time today I would share a few thoughts. I recently heard from one of the big wigs in chiropractic on a summit that not recommending enough chiropractic care could be considered immoral. Wow. That made me stop and think- do I recommend enough care for all of you? I know some of you “get it” and come in regularly for an adjustment. For a lot of us that could range anywhere from a few weeks to maybe 6 weeks. A few of you are more quarterly. Some of you resurface bi-annually or annually, or longer as the case may be.

I get it- life is busy- maybe you are doing all sorts of care- massage, acupuncture, physio for example. I myself try and get adjusted at least once a month (although I’ve told a few of you I would prefer once a week), and a massage once a month or so too. I have done acupuncture in the past and feel like I should reschedule myself for that too. So how is chiropractic different? Chiropractors are trained to do something that no other profession does- correct vertebral subluxations so that your body can function at its optimum potential. Keep your nerve impulses flowing from your brain via your spinal cord to your nerves and out to your organs and muscles. And then relay those impulses back from your arms and legs and organs back to your spinal cord and back to your brain. I am 43 and I can still stand on my own hands when I do yoga if I want to. I have been getting adjustments since I was a teenager and been on a regular care schedule since I was 22 and entered Palmer College of Chiropractic. I almost never have pain. I take no medication except vitamins and supplements. I want that for all of you! So as 2019 starts to wind down, ask yourself if maybe coming in a little more regularly would let you enjoy your life that much more? After all, we are all spiritual beings having a human experience, why not make that human experience one where you enjoy getting out of bed every day?
