I have been in practice for a while, and have seen a lot of different reasons for people seeking out help from a chiropractor. Without a doubt, the number one reason people come into my office is because they are in PAIN. Pain seems to be a driving force for most people. Nobody wants to live their day to day life in pain, that is understandable. Pain is annoying. Pain limits your physical activity. Pain causes problems with relationships. Pain hurts!!! Get the picture?! 

So in they come....with pain. I always tell my patients that pain is a very small way of the body telling you that something else is wrong. We have a brain that controls every aspect of our body. It helps our heart beat, our stomach churn food into a pulp, our lungs expand to take in air, our legs to shift back and forth to walk or run, it raises our arms to high five when our team scores a touchdown and our hair to raise on our arms when we get cold, or hear the latest music group's lead singer belt out a perfectly pitched note. Our brain (the
POWER) is concerned with how our body functions. Only about 10% of our brain's control is even concerned with pain. Think about it. If our body had to choose between walking down the street and digesting food at the same time, or make us realize that we have a slight dull ache in our low back, what we would choose it to do? Function is key. Pain might drive us to seeking results, but the functional results will be of far greater benefit. 

So I deal with these patients seeking out chiropractic care to relieve pain, and they see results. Pain is decreased. But guess what else? They start functioning better as well. Why? Because
CHIROPRACTIC WORKS on the nervous system. The power in the body is turned on. What I get to hear in my office.... "I have never felt better!" "I can garden longer now because I have less pain, and more energy." "I can run a half marathon faster than before, and the pain in my legs are gone." "My digestion and bowel movements have never been this regular in my life." You get the point. 

People come in seeking pain relief, and they leave with life changing functional improvements. The
POWER is on!!! 

THIS is what chiropractic is all about. Changing lives for the better. Health is out there. Make a choice and obtain it.

Most people who have already tried such treatment usually describe it as something really relaxing. So in other words it’s somewhat similar to a massage.
