Chiropractic: Not Just For Backs

Posted on Feb 17, 2019


If you ask most people what a chiropractor does, they’ll say, “They fix bad backs.” While that is true, chiropractors do a lot more, actually. They’re more than just back fixers… for instance, chiropractors can help people improve their immune response and get fewer colds.

Immune response is defined as the reaction of cells and fluids of the body to the presence of a substance which is not recognized as a constituent of the body itself. Basically, your body, when working well, fights off troublemakers, “bad guys,” infections, and diseases– thankfully!

For years chiropractors have noticed their patients demonstrating improvements of complaints related to immune problems. Those who receive regular chiropractic care report less frequent/less severe colds. If they do get a cold, they recover quickly. Meanwhile, if they have allergy symptoms, they’re lessened or disappear altogether. And other respiratory problems aren’t “as bad” for those who see a chiropractor. Thanks to “hands-on” treatment involving spinal adjustments and such, people’s inner body parts are put into their proper place– “alignment”– so they can function properly. When a person’s systems are all working as they should, they feel better!

Besides a person’s back, what are some other parts of the body chiropractors work on in order to relieve pain? At Lakewoods Chiropractic in Forest Lake, MN, Dr. Gerard works on the neck and shoulders. He also deals with arm pain and numbness, as well as arthritis and fibromyalgia. He even works with patients who have asthma, allergies and ear infections. Do you suffer from headaches or sciatica or other bothersome pains? You should try chiropractic care– a natural way to heal and feel better.

If you’re into health and wellness, and you don’t want to automatically resort to pills, prescriptions and drugs to feel better, then consider chiropractic care. Dr. Gerard and staff work with you to help figure out what’s going on and how it can be treated effectively, safely, and fairly quickly. It’s not uncommon for a person to walk out of the office feeling completely better after just one visit!

By far the best chiropractor I’ve ever used. They customize a plan just for you and don’t use a one size fits all approach. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!! Thank you!!!

I have been experiencing low back pain for at least 10 rememberable years and decided on a whim to try chiropractic care at Lakewoods. I had never been to a chiropractor before so I had no expectations that it would work or not but after just my first adjustment I had instant relief for the first time in 10 years. I have since been super impressed with how everything has been explained to me and how my care plan has been formed. The staff are all very kind and have been very helpful as well!
