10 reasons to seek chiropractic care
Author: Natalie Meiri, D.C. Posted: August 8, 2020
There are many more reasons to see a West Palm Beach chiropractor than for neck and back pain. Chiropractors are specialists in nervous, muscular and/or skeletal system conditions. Patients go directly to the chiropractor to get examined, diagnosed and treated for neck and back pain. However, there’s a lot patients are missing out on, if that’s all that is being utilized.
Chiropractic is natural and safe. It is approved under federal law in all 50 states of the nation, in foreign countries, and included under medicare, medicaid and insurance equity laws. Most chiropractors practice in private practices with a model of health called holism. Holism emphasizes the inherent recuperative powers of the body in restoration and maintenance of health. It encourages active patient participation in treating and preventing disease. Holism doesn’t just treat back pain, it looks at the whole body and mind. In this post, I’ll provide 10 reasons people should seek a chiropractor besides for back pain.
- You have pain in the neck, back and/or T.M.J (temporomandibular joint), shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, fingers, thumbs, hips, knees, ankles, feet, toes
You may even have pain that doesn’t seem to be related. For example, you may have an ear ache, pain around your temples or just general soreness in the jaw which is due to a T.M.J. problem. Chest pain could be related to your rotator cuff/shoulder, neck or both. Whatever your problem, a North Palm Beach chiropractor will diagnose your condition and offer a range of treatments.
- Chronic Pain and Fibromyalgia Syndrome (F.M.S.)
The chronic pain you’ve had for years, could be in a part of your body or all of the body like in Fibromyalgia. Fatigue may also be a persistent problem. There are natural remedies and manual-type therapies chiropractors utilize for F.M.S.
- You need more energy, want to move better, improve your posture, balance, strength and flexibility, help your digestive system, boost your immune system, increase circulation and nervous system function
While this may seem like a long list, this is what many patients experience with regular, consistent chiropractic care! A chiropractor can align your body to create a healthier lifestyle.
- You want a healthier pregnancy
Firstly, you are experiencing back pain or swollen knees, ankles or feet. Secondly, you are depressed or having mood swings due to hormonal changes. Finally, you suffer with migraines due to the pregnancy. A chiropractor can help all of above.
- You want your kids’/babies‘ to have less colds, ear-aches/ infections and general illness, bed-wetting, sleep issues, colic/ irritable baby syndrome, behavior and/or concentration issues
Even though kids/babies heal much faster, they still need treatment. Chiropractic offers a drug-free, effective, and natural approach. In the United States, parents also seek “wellness care” chiropractic for their children.
- You need help with asthma and/or want to breath better
Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) use among asthmatics is quite significant for both adults and children in the United States. Of the various CAM therapies, chiropractic stands as the most popular for asthmatics.
Past trauma, bad posture, hormonal, or circulation/nerve related problems could be the cause of your chronic headaches. First, a thorough exam to rule out any more serious causes is necessary. Next, treatment including proper posture education, exercise therapy along with chiropractic manipulation will alleviate your headaches.
Cranial manipulation for stress and insomnia has had good results. Chiropractic care in combination with an exercise regimen such as walking is suggested.
Whether you are a teenager experiencing premenstrual or menstrual pains or an adult with menopausal symptoms, chiropractic adjustments of the spine may help. Drugs are invasive, have a risk of side effects or of irreversible conditions.
- You want to avoid drugs and surgery!
Some patients find relief with chiropractic care even after failure with conventional medicine (drugs and surgery).
Chiropractors like myself, Dr. Natalie Meiri of Meiri Chiropractic in West Palm Beach, Florida help patients with many more ailments and conditions then just back pain. Chiropractic is not a substitute for your regular conventional doctor. Moreover, each discipline has its strengths. However, chiropractic isn’t just for back pain.
