I realize I am a bit spoiled when it comes to having to put up with the aches and pains that are a part of regular life. To say nothing of the not-so-regular aches and pains that can come from auto accidents or any other traumatic injuries. For me, it is a simple matter to get an adjustment to take care of any random pain I might have.
This has not always been typical for me. I have experienced quite a bit of chronic pain in the past. I had a low back injury in my late 20s that led to my becoming a chiropractor. A few years back I had the bad luck to get rear-ended five times over the course of the two year period. Fortunately, through chiropractic I was able to heal myself through these injuries and now I make it a point to get adjusted regularly as part of a maintenance/wellness program to keep my spine as healthy as possible. Still, life happens. I will sometimes move wrong or even, for no obvious reason, have some annoying pain. This is where I can pop in and get adjusted by one of several chiropractors I know.
This is the experience I would like my patients to have. I want my services to be convenient for them. That way, after we work together on whatever large issue brings them in to see me, I can remain a convenient and easy stop for them when I am needed.
I had one patient say that she felt empowered by the fact that she no longer had to suffer with no recourse if she hurt herself. She could easily stop by and get adjusted.
So many people go through life not being aware of the simple solution that chiropractic can offer. Some people have spent tens of thousands of dollars going the medical route trying to fix a simple backache. Hopefully, as time goes on more people will become aware of the power of chiropractic to relieve their pain and allow them to live a fuller life.
