We often hear people ask when they should finally go and see a chiropractor. This question always confuses us because we want you to come in whenever you want! Obviously we need you to make an appointment first, but we would love to see you walk through our doors.
“But I’m not injured!” we hear.
“That doesn’t matter!” is always our response. You don’t have to be hurt or even in pain to come into a chiropractor. While most people do wait until something is physically bothering them, this is not a rule that chiropractors have. We will give anyone an adjustment, not just people who actively have back and neck pain. In fact, it has been shown that having adjustments and other regular chiropractic care can help keep you healthy even in the face of an injury because your body isn’t holding onto all the tension that you naturally accumulate. Think of it as preliminary treatment!
If you have been injured and are interested in looking into chiropractic care, ask your general doctor if you are cleared to have chiropractic treatment. It is always best to catch an injury quickly and chiropractic care is no different in this respect. It is much easier to help someone heal than to undo years of poor healing. If you are able to get to a chiropractor quickly after you are hurt, that is ideal. However, even that isn’t the only time to go.
If you have never been to a chiropractor before but have an old injury that still bugs you now and then, come on in. It is never too late to see if chiropractic care will help you. Granted, it may take a little longer to see any improvement on an older injury, but we still encourage you to try. After all, you never know if something will help you unless you try.
The bottom line is there has never been a better time for you to see a chiropractor than right now! Come on in regardless of injury or pain and you may just be amazed at how much better you feel. You may not have realized how much tension you were holding in your body until you feel it released. Let us help you realize just how great you can feel in your own body.
