Do you have ongoing pain, discomfort, or even inflammatory issues?
Maybe you are someone whose body ailments are new, or maybe you’ve been dealing with ongoing pain for a long time. In either case, it may be worth your while to find a knowledgeable chiropractor.
There’s a phrase which states, “Your spine is your lifeline.” This is an important thought to consider as we try to grasp what exactly this means.
According to truehealthct.com, the spine “has the responsibility of carrying more than a million electrical nerve messages between your brain and your body everyday…you have more than 45 miles of nerves in your body, constantly communicating and coordinating all of your actions, whether you are consciously thinking about it or not. It even controls things like your immune system.”
This definitely helps to put the crucial work of the spine into perspective!
Because the spine is central to our wellbeing, it’s crucial to find credible professionals who understand the function and importance of spinal health.
Excellent chiropractors understand the science and create individualized treatment plans for each patient who comes to them for assistance. We spoke with Dr. Brianne Kemp, owner and chiropractor of Live Well Chiropractic Wexford. Dr. Brie has shared with us three important ways to find a chiropractor who is the right fit for you.
Ask Yourself the Important Questions
“How can I be sure that a chiropractor will meet my specific needs?”
Each person will present symptoms unique to them, and every situation is different. A one-size-fits-all treatment plan won’t give you the results you’re looking for. Be sure your chiropractor is equipped to tackle your individual symptoms.
“Is there a chiropractor out there who can be understanding, compassionate, and find solutions to any and all questions I have about my condition?”
The chiropractor you choose should be invested in helping you feel your best. Great and trustworthy chiropractors are patient, good listeners, and encouraging.
“Will my chiropractor take the time to pinpoint what exactly is causing my issue of concern?”
Make sure you discuss with your chiropractor that you want to get to the root cause of your ailments. An effective treatment plan focuses on the core problem, not just the symptoms.
“What kind of testing will my chiropractor recommend?”
A chiropractor may refer you for different testing, including X-rays, blood work, MRI, or urinalysis to rule out other issues. Make sure you are clear on why they recommend these tests. A good chiropractor will explain exactly what they’re looking for.
There are many benefits to receiving proper chiropractic care. These include:
- Reduced Inflammation
- Enhanced Flexibility
- Boosted Athletic Performance
- Increased Blood Flow to the Brain
Many of us struggle with these ailments from improper spinal alignment. The mistake we make is we look up the symptoms we’re experiencing, and are then inundated with possible at-home treatments that may or may not help. You’ll also learn about a plethora of medications that are supposed to provide pain relief. If you pay close attention, a lot of those medications come with possible intense side effects, some even more severe than the reason you’re taking the medication.
When searching for a chiropractor, you will want one that treats you as more than a patient and truly cares for the overall outcome of your health, not just treating the symptoms.
It takes unwavering commitment to maintain control of your health. To finalize your decision on a chiropractor, be sure to schedule that first consultation appointment!
At the consult, you and your chiropractor can go over your situation in detail. This will allow you to gain a better understanding of what will be expected from you as the patient and will give the chiropractor a clearer understanding of what they can do to help. It is important to remember that you may need to engage in additional practices outside of your appointments. These may include:
- Consuming proper supplementation for your needs
- Exercises to improve your spinal health
- Changing nutrition to enhance results from chiropractic care
