TO CHIRO OR NOT TO CHIRO
The one question that comes up most often in conversations concerning Chiropractic care is, 'If I am not in pain, why do I need to see a Chiropractor?'
One good analogy is; 'Do you go to the Dentist when your NOT in pain?' We all know, the answer is probably YES!
We all make periodic trips to the dentist so we may avoid crisis care (drilling, fillings, etc.). So seeing a Chiropractor when you are not in pain is done to avoid crisis care.
By keeping you spine moving in proper alignment you can reduce your risk of future back pain, headaches, sciatica, and the list goes on. You and your doctor will be able to decide how frequently you should come in to be checked. Soon after starting care, your body will be able to tell you when you need to come in
How Chiropractic Works:
At the Waldorf Chiropractic Center, we believe not every person is the same. Therefore, the doctors here have been trained in several different adjusting styles.
We have learned though time that not all people respond to the same thing. In this way the treatment you receive is custom tailored to you and the condition you are experiencing.
Adjustments of the spine can be performed several different ways. The doctor may just use their hands or may employ use of an adjusting instrument. There are also ways to adjust with out the need to hear that "popping" noise.
You and our doctor can discuss what is the correct way for your treatment to proceed. By adjusting the spine, we move it closer to being in alignment. Of course this does not happen on the first visit. It is like jacking up a car. With every pump of the jack the car moves higher off the ground. Similarly, with Chiropractic, every adjustment moves the bone closer and closer to where it needs to be for you to be in great health.
Who needs Chiropractic care?
Will I need care for the rest of my life?
What if my insurance does not cover care?
The Healing Power of your own body!
This is where medical doctors differ from Chiropractors.
In medicine, the emphasis is placed on the blood, while in Chiropractic, it is placed on a properly functioning nervous system.
The brain is the master control center of the body. If messages cannot get from the brain to the other areas of the body, we cannot function properly. The body will then give you a symptom (i.e. pain) to let you know something is wrong. By taking a pain killer, you're just covering up your body's message that something is wrong. You are not dealing with the cause.
