Four Myths I Have Heard About Chiropractic in Grand Junction
“Once you start chiropractic you have to keep going.”
This is such a false statement. Chiropractic patients have taken advantage of learning how their body functions without any neurological interferences or pain/discomfort. They learn that they don’t have to live with pain or take an over the counter pain reliever to not have pain. Chiropractic patients have a heightened awareness of when their body is misaligned. That is why they keep going back. Not because they have to; they don’t have to do anything. They choose to have active and maintenance care.
As a chiropractic patient I know when my body just isn’t right and when I need an adjustment. It’s not because I hurt. It is because I just don’t feel right. It is hard to explain, but I know as a patient, that I don’t have to live with pain. I don’t have to live with headaches every day or every week. I don’t have to live with PMS each month. Why, because I am a well adjusted human being.
As a Chiropractic Physician, I want all of my patients to obtain optimal health. The best way I know how, is to keep up with the treatment plan. For some people, a treatment plan might be twice a month, once a month, once a quarter. Everyone is different. It depends upon the patient’s activity level and health.
Some patients try to say that they never hurt before they saw a chiropractor, but what they fail to realize is the pain was there all along; they have been ignoring it. Pain is something that patients become accustomed to living with, and chiropractors are here to relieve pain and restore the body to proper function.
