1. Pain is always the last sign of a problem.
The human body is very strong and versatile when it comes to pain. The body can get by for months or even years before any signs of pain arise. Pain is usually the reason for visits to your chiropractor. If you are taking medication for your pain, the pain may go away, but the dysfunction that caused the pain still persists. Dysfunctions in the body present in different ways, for example: Headaches, diarrhea, asthma, allergies and so on are signs and symptoms for your body to alert you of something being wrong. Muscles, ligaments and joints are often injured due to long-term biomechanical dysfunctions, usually from past injuries that were not treated properly or not allowed to fully heal. These dysfunctions can lead to future injuries so it is important to keep your body healthly before your symptoms appear. Regular visits to your chiropractic are important not only when you feel pain, but periodically to prevent future injury and improve your overall health.
2. Athletes use chiropractors every day to stay on top of their game.
Chiropractors are one of the leading health care providers that help athletes remove the causes of pain and help increase range of motion in the body. We are biomechanical movement specialist. Chiropractors are noted throughout all of sports and are used heavily by professional teams all over the world. Athletes such as Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Jerry Rice, Derek Rose, Aaron Rogers, Terrell Ownes, Michael Phelps, and Tom Brady are just some of the top performing athletes in the world that use Chiropractic to stay on top of their game. Chiropractors not only help rehabilitate athletes for their return to play, but help prevent injuries, maintain flexibility, improving coordination and improve an athlete’s competitive edge through confidence and health.
3. Proper control of your nervous system helps maintain the bodies normal cascade function.
The human brain is the control center for the entire body. The spinal cord is a long, thin bundle of nervous tissue that extends from the brain and is how your brain communicates with the rest of your body. The brain and spinal cord together make up the central nervous system (CNS). Dysfunctions in the spinal column may cause a disruption in the transmission of these signals from the brain. These spinal nerves travel through the vertebrae of the spine and out to the organs and tissues of the body. When there is a disruption of this signal, it is term a subluxation by the chiropractic profession. Chiropractors don’t just treat symptoms of pain, but also the causes of pain and eliminating disruptions in the spinal nerve transmission caused by subluxations. Chiropractors have a vast education base in the spine and surrounding human anatomy. Our diagnostic skills allow us to diagnose any dysfunctions in the body and treat them through Chiropractic and physiotherapy care. If you have any questions regarding chiropractic and the nervous system, contact Elevate Chiropractic today for more information.
4. Your Chiropractor does not have healing powers.
Chiropractors are not out to “fix your back” or “heal your pain.” Rather, our goal is to restore proper biomechanics of the human body and proper nerve flow from the brain. By allowing for improved natural spinal motion and eliminating any tension on spinal nerves and muscles, we allow the body to regenerate normal function through natural healing. Chiropractors believe that the body is best at its natural state and disease is caused through disruptions of this natural state. We as Chiropractors never treat the disease or signs or symptoms. Our goal is to find the cause of dysfunctions and treat the body through chiropractic manipulation (adjustments) in order to restore this proper nerve flow generated by the nervous system. As disruptions are removed, the body will naturally restore itself to a normal state.
5. Age does not matter when it comes to Chiropractic.
From newborns to seniors, everyone can benefit from Chiropractic care. There is no patient to young or too old. The Chiropractic art is practiced in order to help alleviate dysfunction of the body regardless of the age of the patient. Newborn babies endure unparalleled amounts of physical stress during the birthing process. Studies have found that 95% of newborns have subluxations in their neck and that removing these subluxations may prevent the development of several types of disease including, infantile colic, bedwetting, allergies, asthma and behavioral disorders (ADD/ADHD). Please visit www.icpa4kids.com for more information regarding children and chiropractic or contact Elevate Chiropractic today for more information.
6. Chiropractors not only specialize in your spine, but every aspect of your body.
Chiropractors are very educated in every aspect of your health. We are highly trained in diagnosis and procedures, radiology (x-ray, MRI, CT) evaluations and report writing, physical therapy procedures, fitness and nutrition. Chiropractic is not only a treatment for pain but also and lifestyle that helps you improve your health and make lasting changes to your life. We also specialize in areas of pediatrics, geriatrics, sports rehabilitation, and neurology. Here at Elevate Chiropractic, we specialize in whiplash injury biomechanics and brain traumatology through advanced certifications from the Spine Research Institute of San Diego. If you would like more information about the conditions we treat, please visit our services page or contact Elevate Chiropractic today.
7. You are just as responsible as your doctor.
In order for chiropractic treatment to be effective, the patient must share some of the responsibility. Often times, patients of chiropractic claim that “treatment did not help their condition” or that “it was a waste of time.” In most cases, one does not start to have low back pain overnight. It takes time for serious chronic conditions to develop and the result is usually your trip to a chiropractor’s office. Continued misuse of your body or biomechanical alterations in normal function can lead to the symptoms experienced as pain. As chiropractors it is important for us to find out the cause of your condition and help you make changes. It is important for people to understand that it took months or even years for their condition to develop and alleviating their condition does not happen instantaneously. Chiropractors understand the physiological mechanism of cell damage and repair and the importance of providing the body with the proper tools to reach our goals of a symptom free life. Chiropractors will often give their patients nutritional advice or even exercises to perform at home to help increase the rate of recovery and help build strength in body structures to aid in the prevention of future occurrences of pain.
8. Chiropractic can help with frequent colds or getting sick.
Studies have shown that patients who are receiving regular chiropractic adjustments may be less likely to get sick and have decreased durations of illness. Regular adjustments can reduce the production of pro-inflammatory mediators associated with tissue damage and pain and help increase the body’s production of regulatory processes that aid your immune system. It is very common for patients of chiropractic to notice changes in their health. Patients who seek regular chiropractic care are more in tune with their health and are given recommendations on how to live a healthier life. From the food that we eat to the activities we are involved in, it is important to ask how the benefits of chiropractic can help you. Chiropractors specialize in a wide variety of healthcare and are well versed in every aspect of your health. Little changes such as regular adjustments, diet alterations and exercise can increase your immune system and help your body make changes for the future. Ask how Elevate Chiropractic can help change your life today!
9. "Someone told me once I go, I will have to go forever."
Depending on the injury you sustained or the condition you are visiting your chiropractor for, regular frequent visits may be necessary for the first 2-3 weeks, sometimes longer, in order for the treatment to be effective. Your chiropractor will discuss your treatment plan with you and make sure you understand every aspect of your recovery. One you have reached a symptom free point, it is important for us to maintain your health through periodic visits to your chiropractor. It is important to address that symptoms are the last indicator of disease and chiropractors focus on prevention through continued maintenance care. Just like regular check-up with your medical doctor or dentist are important to catch early signs of disease, regular check-up with your chiropractor are just as important to your health. Please visit our spine information page for more information on how chiropractic adjustments help maintain a healthy spine.
10. Adjustments do not hurt.
Getting adjusted for the first time can be a little nerve racking. Chiropractors are well trained in the art of manipulation and understand the biomechanics behind how the spine and different joints function. For many new patients, the sound a chiropractic adjustment makes may make them a little weary. The sound created is termed cavitation and is the result of gases being released from the joint capsule when space is being created between two adjacent joints. The sound is simply a “pop” or “crack” heard. Chiropractic adjustments do not cause wear and tear on your joints, but rather help increase the nutrients provided to your joint capsules and discs in between your vertebrae. There is a common misnomer that “knuckle cracking” can lead to arthritic conditions and is not advised. There have been many studies released proving just the opposite and chiropractors are one of the leaders in healthcare that promote the movement of joints in order to increase the amount of nutrients and health of our joints. Please visit our spine page for more information about chiropractic adjustments and your spine.

I love that you mentioned that chiropractic treatment can also prevent possible injuries and not just heal them. With that in mind, I will make sure to look for someone we could trust to take care of my son who wanted to be a football player someday. This summer he will be joining a training camp for football to prepare for his future goals. With this information, his body will be cared for properly. Thanks for the information!
7/9/2018 01:52:54 pm
Thanks for mentioning how a chiropractor should be good at rehabilitation. I also like how you said that they should offer rehabilitation services. My husband and I are looking into chiropractors to fix our back pain.
7/26/2018 11:21:24 pm
Thanks for helping me understand that the chiropractic treatment will be able to help increase the nutrients of the joints. I guess I have to undergo this kind of treatment because I started having clicking joints on my feet when I got into an accident when I was in college. There was a vehicle that accelerated without any signal which almost passed over my left foot. Luckily, it was only half of my foot that was affected.
9/5/2018 06:56:37 am
Thank you for addressing Point 9. It seems to be a common response. No you don't "have" to go forever, but you will keep on using your body, and thus create problems if you are not using good posture and maintaining it with proper movement. A good chiropractor will not only do an adjustment, but equip you with a few basic exercises to address some ongoing problems that you might not have even noticed. No one ever says if I buy a new car I'm going to have to wash it from time to time so there fore I don't need a car.

I like how simply you put some of the purposes of a sports chiropractor. You say that they give athletes the opportunity to recover faster from an injury. There are so many injuries that happen in sports, sometimes requiring orthopedic surgery. What you say can be applied here too. They can help a faster recovery after orthopedic surgery.
10/2/2018 11:32:45 am
It's interesting that regular chiropractic visits can improve your immune system due to increased production of regulatory processes. I've always thought that chiropractors were there to help with back pain and didn't offer any additional benefits. I do get colds pretty frequently, so maybe I should consider going to the chiropractor!
8/22/2019 03:31:36 pm
I didn't know that studies have shown that patients who are receiving regular chiropractic adjustments may be less likely to get sick and have decreased durations of illness. I am thinking about going to the chiropractor because I think that it would help me get fewer headaches so that I could stop cancelling plans all the time because of them. I think it would also be nice that it could help my immune system because I also seem to get sick a lot too. Thanks for pointing out the benefits of chiropractic care.
9/9/2019 01:28:54 pm
I liked how you mentioned that everybody can benefit from chiropractic care, no matter their age. My father is looking for a treatment to reduce his lower back pain, and we are looking for information. I will let him know about the benefits of chiropractic care to see if it helps his decision.
10/10/2019 06:36:58 am
It's interesting that you mentioned the fact that studies have shown that people getting regular chiropractic adjustments are less likely to get sick. My daughter is constantly sick so getting a regular chiropractic adjustment may help reduce the frequency of the colds. I'll share this article with her so she can be more informed about the aspects of going to see a chiropractor.
11/11/2019 04:15:38 pm
You made a great point about making sure that you get up and stretch and how it reduces the risk of injury and helps maintain joint function. My husband has always had some sort of back pain and wanted more tips on how to deal with it and treat it. We will be sure to keep these tips in mind in addition to finding a professional to help my husband.
1/17/2020 08:51:24 am
It's cool that you're never too young or too old to see a chiropractor. I've been having some back pain recently, and I'd like to get that dealt with. I'll be sure to look into my options for chiropractors who can help me with this.
1/23/2020 08:13:09 am
I was surprised when you mentioned that injuries that are not treated properly or can't fully heal can cause long-term muscle or joint damage. I'm worried that I might develop signs of whiplash because I was in a car accident with a speeding driver on the highway over the weekend. Thanks for sharing this article and helping me see why seeking chiropractic treatment would be worth the cost!
4/10/2020 01:30:52 am
I had no idea that people who receive regular chiropractic care are less likely to get sick.

I should share and discuss this article with her so we can get her back treated using chiropractic care.
5/12/2020 12:53:27 pm
It's helpful that you point out that chiropractic care can help relieve back pain. I hurt my back playing frisbee recently, so I'm thinking about seeing a chiropractor. I'm going to look for a reputable chiropractor in my area to use.
5/14/2020 05:40:34 am
I didn't realize that athletes used chiropractic treatments to help them recover and stay on the top of their game. My son is headed to a basketball tournament. I wonder if it would be a good idea for him to be treated before and after his games.
6/23/2020 07:43:06 am
I like what you said about chiropractic care helping people of all ages. My sister's neck has been hurting recently. I'll share this information with her so that she can look into her options for chiropractors who can help her with this.
8/25/2020 09:54:34 am
It's cool that you point out that you can help improve your athletic performance by seeing a chiropractor.

I'm going to search in my area for a reputable chiropractor that I can use.
9/11/2020 08:59:55 pm
This is some really good information about chiropractor care. It is nice to know that chiropractic treatments can help your immune system. My best friend has a weak immune system. So, it might be smart for her to try this so she can stay healthier.

It was interesting when you talked about how chiropractic treatment is about your whole body and lifestyle, not just your spine. I've been considering finding a chiropractic treatment for the pain in my lower back that started about two months ago. Thanks for helping me understand some of the additional reasons it'd be beneficial for me to book a chiropractic treatment soon.
4/8/2021 09:40:35 pm
It's interesting to know that it's fairly common for athletes to get chiropractic services. I plan to start taking up tennis soon so that I have a sport to play as a form of workout. Maybe it would be nice to look for chiropractic back pain care services first in order to make sure that I can maintain a good posture when playing.
It's great to know that chiropractors would be able to help you with your health that can give lasting effects on your life. I would definitely want to undergo their treatment that to ensure that I will have no major issues in my health when I reach my 40s or 50s. I also need their services these days because of the pain I have been having in my lower back.

Thanks for helping me understand that chiropractic wellness treatments from professionals would help you restore proper biomechanics in your body and to have proper nerve flow from the brain. I guess this is what my husband needs to help him walk properly again after an incident when he was a teen. His back or hip might have been affected when he fell after a jump while playing basketball, so this treatment might fix that and his walk.
5/17/2022 03:08:14 am

I am thankful that this post reminded us that a chiropractor is not a healer and therefore, we need to ensure that we take care of us too on top of seeing a chiropractor. My wife said her back and shoulders have been aching. I think it would benefit her to see a chiropractor.
