Can Chiropractic Adjustments Improve Well-Being?

Posted on May 26, 2019


Chiropractic doctors check for a misalignment of the bones in a person’s spine. A misalignment puts pressure on the nerves that control everything in your body, resulting in pain. Chiropractors use hands-on manipulation to naturally correct misalignments such that patients don’t have to resort to using pills for pain relief.

Do chiropractic adjustments help improve a person’s well-being? Definitely. Chiropractors physically manipulate bodies to promote musculoskeletal alignment. When “everything is in its rightful and proper place,” then a patient’s mobility, ability and strength improves. Having a properly aligned spinal cord improves a person’s immune system function, too.

Most people who visit doctors have in their minds what they want doctors to hear, but most doctors don’t do that great a job at listening to their patients. They like treating symptoms rather than conditions. A chiropractor, though, is oftentimes a better listener– someone who is willing to truly listen to what a patient describes and then work with them to improve their overall condition. In a way, you could describe chiropractic care as “getting to the root of the problem,” rather than a medical doctor’s gruff way of “prescribing a pill for the symptom.” If that’s not enough to cause someone to take a second and think, “This is a better approach to my health and well-being,” then what is?

Pills and surgeries often bring with them more problems… harsh side effects, long term negative changes in the body, and/or a diminished quality of life after “care.” A chiropractor, however, helps patients achieve their wellness goals naturally, without the risk of long-term side effects, toxins and chemicals.

If you’re someone who has constant back pain, life can be difficult. The same goes for chronic neck pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, etc. Pain messes with a person’s well-being. Chiropractors are in the business of relieving people’s pain. When this occurs, patients feel like they have a new lease on life. “It doesn’t hurt like it used to,” they’ll say with a smile. “And now I can do what I want to do, again. Yes!”

If you’re looking to improve both your mental and emotional well-being, you need to reduce or eliminate the problems your body is currently experiencing– problems that are hampering your lifestyle! Therefore, make an appointment with Dr. Jason Gerard at Lakewoods Chiropractic today by calling 651-464-0800. Let the healing begin!

Great place to heal!! Exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is I didn't come sooner!! After seeing three doctors with a solution of cortisone injections in my back it was time to try something more natural. While I've always understood the importance of chiropractic care I've never fully tried it. Everything they have done here is tailored for me! I started feeling better by the 3rd adjustment! I haven't taken a single pain med! Praise God!! Don't wait to get the care you need!! I wish I hadn't. Five stars and more!! Bonus....I was given all the equipment I need to do my stretches at home along with an in depth nutritional support system! Amazing!
