Imagine recovering twice as quickly after surgery, no longer needing pain medication (or less medication) for numerous injuries / surgeries and conditions such as fibromyalgia or scoliosis, or boosting your immune system so you’ll get fewer colds / flu throughout the year. No, this isn’t a forward-looking new age / science fiction novel. Chiropractic care allows pain reduction or elimination, recovery faster, and is more affordable and less risky than traditional medical treatments.

Reducing the quantity and intensity of physical pain is the number one reason people seek chiropractic help. Chiropractic care may treat pain in all areas of the body, or even eliminate it. Back pain is the most frequently reported reason patients receive chiropractic treatment. This treatment method is not solely for back pain. For a number of other reasons, patients go to a chiropractor, such as (but not limited to) headaches, carpel tunnel syndrome, knee injuries, arthritis, stress and soft tissue injuries. By reducing pain and rigidity patients can relax and concentrate on the process of rehabilitation. It will also boost their immune system and give them more energy and positive perspective on their physical condition(s).
When a patient is in an accident or has a chronic condition, the recovery time usually takes so long that they start to feel as if they will never feel good again. Chiropractic treatment helps speed up the recovery process or get to the point where they can experience improved quality of life outside a doctor’s office or rehabilitation centre. They are able to heal at a faster rate and recover more fully by relieving the pressure throughout the patient’s body. The body has a lot of different entities but everything works as one unit. If the “whole unit” is treated, then the individual systems will operate more efficiently and recover from any condition / disease. If full and complete recovery is not possible, the body will be able to recover to its fullest extent through chiropractic care. This is not possible if the main focus lies only in certain areas. For optimal results the whole body has to be treated.
Most people cringe to the sound of words like “rehabilitation,” “medical care” or “medical treatment” when thinking about medical treatment. This is because a high price tag comes with traditional medical care / treatment. People have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on basic medical care, and insurance companies have. If more treatment is needed beyond basic care, the cost will double, if not triple. It can be financially devastating to an individual and even more damaging to a whole family , especially if more than one member of the family needs medical attention. This is why chiropractic care with patients, employers and insurance companies is becoming increasingly popular. Chiropractic care represents only a small fraction of the cost compared with traditional medical treatment. Each session runs anywhere from $35.00 up to $70.00 on average. In order to achieve the same end result as months (even years) of traditional medical treatments, most patients will only need a few sessions. Not only is it saving money from the patient and insurance company, there’s less chance they’ll need long-term or repeat treatment. They will also spend much less time missing from work days or weeks.
