Arm Doctor

There are a lot of different ideas about chiropractic. You might get asked by a friend or family member: “Why do you get adjusted by a chiropractor? Do you have a bad back?” or “You get adjusted regularly even though you don’t have pain?” or “Your chiropractor thinks he can fix your acid reflux/headaches/sciatica/poor sleeping/’fill in the blank symptom by adjusting your spine?'”

Why do you get adjusted regularly by a chiropractor? Do you have a bad back?
Sometimes the answer is….yes. You have less pain and you heal better when you are being adjusted regularly. Most often though, the answer is “no…I don’t have a bad back”. The question is asked with the belief that chiropractic’s purpose is to be an alternative to pain killers, muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatories. Some also believe that the only reason chiropractic exists is to make sure the bones in the spine are in the right place and the joints are moving well. Since its inception, chiropractic’s purpose is to simply identify and remove nerve interference. We know that there is an innate intelligence that controls and coordinates healing and function that runs through our nerve system. If your nerve system is functioning at 100%, you have the best opportunity to express life. Chiropractors don’t do any healing. The only reason we are spine doctors is because your spine houses your spinal cord. If your spinal cord was in your arm, we’d be arm doctors. We adjust families for a lifetime because science has shown that a healthier spine leads to a better quality of life and longer life span.

Your chiropractor thinks he can fix your acid reflux/headaches/sciatica/poor sleeping/’fill in the blank symptom by adjusting your spine?
When most people first see us, they are asking a version of this question. I have some kind of symptom, can you make it go away? It can be a surprise to hear that chiropractors don’t have adjustments for acid reflux/headache/sciatica/poor sleeping/’fill in the blank symptom’. I can’t fix any of those symptoms…but you can. I know a lot of adjustments to remove subluxation so your brain can talk to your body better – that’s where ALL your healing comes from so let’s make sure they’re fully connected.
