Chiropractor - Your first line of defense
Did you know that Chiropractors can help with more than just your neck and back pain?
At Ayen Chiropractic, Dr. Ayen WANTS to be your go to health care provider and your first line of defense when you’re not feeling well.
What about help with head colds or sinus pain, you ask? Absolutely.
Your child is having bed-wetting issues and/or ear infections. Can chiropractic care help? Absolutely.
Sick of your elbow/shoulder/knee/ankle pain that is a daily agitation? Chiropractic care can help.
I think you see the trend. The list goes on and on: shoulder immobility, maternity discomfort or wellness care, TMJ dysfunction or jaw pain, digestive issues, etc.
MYTHS AND MISCONCEPTIONS
“You can’t help me. It’s a muscle thing.”
People often say to their Chiropractors “I wish you could help, but I think I’m just dealing with a muscle problem.” Well, there is truth to that – muscles move bones and so do Chiropractors!
Sometimes a misalignment in the spine is the very reason why those bones aren’t moving as expected. This leads to muscles that are sore and tight. Chiropractic adjustments can help get that alignment restored so that the muscle can go about doing its rightful job!
“Adjustments are addicting, and all chiropractors want to put me on a long treatment plan”
There is nothing physically or chemically addictive about a chiropractic adjustment. People can certainly get used to the feeling following adjustments and could want to get that feeling on a regular basis. Chiropractic adjustments can actually help to naturally relieve the pain (without side effects) that chemically-addictive drugs, such as opioids, are designed to relieve.
As far as a treatment plan, our patients see significant results within the first two weeks of pain on average. The next recommendation would be to get a patient into a maintenance plan once they are out of pain, to stabilize and limit the re-occurrence of the ailment that brought them in.
Our goal – to get you feeling better as quickly as possible!
“I don’t need to see the Chiropractor, I don’t hurt anywhere.”
Pain is the last thing to show up. For conditions that have been around for an extended amount of time, they usually take longer to resolve as well. So….when you pull, tweak or hurt something, it’s best to address it sooner than later.
Having a misaligned spine can also manifest in other ways – i.e. digestion issues, sleep disturbances, headaches, overcompensation in joints that never had a “problem” before, etc.
Chiropractic care is another form of maintaining your body and nervous system, not much different than a reason people go to the gym, visit their dentist, or take their vehicles in for regular maintenance.
At Ayen Chiropractic, we have a primary focus on health and wellness and strive to build a longstanding partnership with our patients that result in their optimal health.
We believe in not only chiropractic care but whole-body care. Adjustments may not always be the magic bullet (as much as we’d love them to be). Adjustments have the most to offer when they are on a patient who also takes good care of themselves with a healthy and balanced clean diet, plenty of sleep and someone who manages their stress well.
We’re happy to be your “first line of defense” and help you get back to feeling better!
