Before you Visit a Chiropractor, READ THIS FIRST!

Posted on Jun 1, 2016


Chiropractors are known for manually adjusting your musculoskeletal system to get your nervous system in proper working order. When there’s a vertebral subluxation (aka a dislocation or misalignment) or spinal joint dysfunction, the chiropractor typically uses his or her hands to move the spine, joint and/or soft tissue into its proper place, therefore allowing the body to heal itself.

Why do people see chiropractors?

Primarily, they’re known for helping relieve back pain, though they also deal with a host of issues including carpal tunnel syndrome, neck pain, sciatica, scoliosis, hurting knees, chronic headaches, asthma and allergy problems.

Chiropractors believe the body can regulate and naturally heal itself via the brain, spinal cord and nerves. Therefore, chiropractic care is a drugless procedure.

Since the body’s systems are controlled by a person’s brain and nerves, chiropractors are in the business of locating and treating any interference in the body’s intricate communication matrix. A “pinched nerve,” for example, can cause excruciating pain not only in one place of the body such as the lower back, but in others as well (like the digestive system) since nerves connect various parts. The chiropractor’s job is to remove nerve pathway interferences so the body can restore itself to normalcy.

Chiropractic care generally involves a series of visits over time, since healing can be an ongoing process. A chiropractor considers a person’s whole body during treatment(s), and may give a person helpful health and lifestyle tips to help quicken their relief from chronic pain and problems. The way they sit at a computer desk for long periods of time, for example, may be contributing to their seemingly constant lower back pain.

As an alternative to taking drugs for pain, chiropractic care is a viable option. Many people attest to its positive benefits.

Chiropractic care is keeping pace with the times. Some chiropractors use state-of-the-art technology to detect areas of nerve disturbance. The “Myovision” machine can document and monitor a patient’s results, helping the chiropractor deliver the appropriate care. The Myovision machine doesn’t hurt– it’s not using needles, electric shock or heat. Instead, it is able to receive information from your Central Nervous System. This technology can detect and pinpoint abnormal function on the nerve system which cannot be seen on an X-ray. Lakewoods Chiropractic, of Forest Lake, Minnesota, utilizes Myovision testing.

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!
