Let's pretend we are playing and recite the reasons together...
1. Back Pain
2. Neck Pain
Yes, those are all good reasons to be treated by a Chiropractor, because chiropractic has such a great success rate with all of these conditions.
But now let's play the advanced version of Family Feud, and recite the Top 5 most UNCOMMON reasons to see a Chiropractor.
And as promised in the title of the article, Number 5 is Amazing.
1. Pain,Tingling and/or Numbness in an Extremity
(Arms and Hands and Legs and Feet)
Patients who are suffering with Sciatica (in legs or feet), or a Cervical Neuropathy (in arm or hand) usually seek medical intervention first due to the pain and discomfort. Pain killers just hide the pain for a while but the pain persists and usually gets worse over this time.
But finally, a patient finds their way to a Doctor of Chiropractic after these medications fail or become too strong. Chiropractic aims to remove the pressure on the nerves affected, thereby addressing the cause instead of covering up the symptoms.
In most cases, Chiropractic can delay or eliminate the need for drugs or surgery.
2. Relief from Allergies
Another issue people see chiropractors for is Allergies, Asthma and other sinus and respiratory issues. The efficiency of your Immune System to fight off allergens and infection is largely dependent on the integrity of your Central Nervous System. The job of a Chiropractor is to remove nerve interference. It is like correcting a bad cell phone signal, making it so the immune system no longer perceives the allergen as a threat.
Chiropractic patients perceive less overall symptoms due to seasonal allergies and asthma triggers without the need for medication.
When the fountains turn green in Savannah for St. Patrick's Day, soon the city turns green in the spring due to the pollen. Most of the patients at Ranicki Chiropractic are not phased by this pollen assault due to their well-tuned nervous system.
3. Healthier Children with less Sickness and Disabilities
More and more parents bring their children to see the chiropractor because they don't want to see their child have chronic health conditions at an early age. Chiropractic care has helped many children recover from conditions such as acid reflux, ear infections, colic, asthma, and to improve challenges associated with ADD, ADHD and even Autism.
Remember that the chiropractic adjustment removes interference in the central nervous system, allowing the entire body to express itself at a higher level.
In our office, Dr Ranicki, our lead doctor has a specialization in Chiropractic Neurology and Pediatric Chiropractic, and because of that, we see many children and children with special needs.
4. Easier Pregnancy and Labor & Delivery
Moms-to-be find relief at the Chiropractor for common issues during pregnancy. Conditions such as back pain, heartburn and circulation problems all been shown to improve under chiropractic care.
Patients who see chiropractors have also been shown to have shorter and less painful deliveries. This makes for happy moms, especially those choosing natural child births.
5. Male and Female Issues
Women: Due to the nervous system’s control over the menstrual cycle, chiropractic has helped women with not only the level of pain, but also abnormal cycles and even infertility. More mature women have also found relief in their menopausal symptoms.
Men: The nerves that control the male reproductive organs exit from the bottom of the spine, in the lumbar region. This lower back region is often the site of back pain and stiffness. Chiropractic adjustments to the spine can help unblock challenged nerves and increase blood flow to the body’s vital organs. This, in turn, will increase the amount of blood flow and nerve activity to the penis and scrotum, thereby allowing for sustainable erections. In short, chiropractic care has the same effect as drugs – to increase blood flow to the penis – but without any harmful side effects or worries about timing or dosage of medication.
I told you that number 5 was going to surprise you!
