Chiropractors look for the root cause of a person’s pain and locate specific areas in these systems that are not working properly, remove any interference so that the body can begin the healing process.
Many people have had many different types of injuries and trauma to the body, whether they are small or large that are left untreated. Injuries and traumas cause musculoskeletal imbalances in the body, of which our muscles, ligaments and spine have to compensate for. The body can compensate for these imbalances for many years with no pain, but pain is our body finally telling us that it has reached its maximum efforts and can no longer endure any more stress put on it. So when a person is in pain, it may be coming from an area in the body that was injured many years ago.
People often say, “I tried chiropractic once or twice and it did not work for me.” It amazes us every time, when we hear a person who has been living in pain for so many years, try something once or twice and give up so easily. Drugs and surgery do not cure the underlying issue that is going on in the body to cause the pain, only the body can heal itself when it is provided the correct tools. Chiropractic can provide those tools by freeing up areas in the body that are unbalanced and unable to heal properly.
Chiropractic works, but it takes time and commitment for the body to heal and get better.
