Why should I see a chiropractor if I'm not experiencing pain?
April 3, 2017
Although pain is often what brings patients into the office, chiropractors are more than just pain doctors. Sure we are great at relieving pain and we do it relatively quickly and inexpensively, but chiropractic is more than just pain relief! Pain is often the last symptom of dysfunction and the absence of pain doesn't mean the absence of dysfunction. Lets say you experience some sharp pain in your low back. If you take a pill the pain may go away temporarily but did you fix the problem? ....Was the problem that you were lacking the medication?
The nervous system is the body's master control system and information highway. It's what connects the brain to the body, receives information from the environment, and controls all the bodies activities.
Chiropractors treat mechanical and nervous system dysfunction they call "subluxations."
Chiropractic benefits beyond pain
