We are doing our annual beach week in the office this week. Sometimes that means cool food, sometimes it means fun, then annoying music. But it always means an opportunity to have a spine checked. The question is why?
For anybody who thinks that chiropractic care of your spine won’t improve your health, I ask you to first look at the evidence. One of the largest quality of life studies ever published was done on chiropractic patient outcomes. Since there are numerous studies that have shown the same ( Study list), chiropractic patients feel better, enjoy life more, and feel less sick, injured or diseased. Meaning, when they fill out a patient questionnaire, in general they feel as though their wellness has improved.
Look at drugs like mans response to failed living.
I had 300 patients roughly, who were able to stop “lifetime” medications in our office in 2008. I believe this was so good in this year, simply because we had hyper growth that year. More new patients than ever. Couple that with my aggressive leadership to get off of meds and improve health, with our dietary lifestyle changes, my love of fitness, and we had a lot of wins.
Thank God for helping people stay the course.
Thus, when it comes to chiropractic, the second piece of evidence continues beyond self assessment of wellness, to anecdotal evidence of hundreds of people getting off of meds. Corrective chiropractic care is enough to do that for many people, but it really helps to be wholly focused on all things wellness. The way God would have it, see His plan, and follow it. Look at drugs like mans response to failed living. This is really all it is. When the drug list for type II diabetes comes out over 140 options on the shelf, it reeks of nothing more than a failure of mankind, especially when type II diabetes can be cured… we’ve seen it. (diabetes med list - http://www.webmd.com/drugs/condition-594-type+2+diabetes+mellitus.aspx)
The third piece of evidence that your spine matters, is the fact that the principle is sound, well beyond anything else. Your brain is awesome. Period. Your body is dependent on your brain. Your brain communicates through your spinal cord. Your spinal column protects your spinal cord. Thus when your spinal column degenerates, your life does with it.
Next point, degeneration is as quiet as cancer. When it is a problem, you are already well into it. Everyone needs both spinal review as well as spinal care. You brush your teeth as part of hygiene, you should adjust your spine as part of hygiene. Period, it is the best thing you can do for the basis of wellness. Treat your spine like it is the house in which all that matters to you resides. Your nervous system gives you everything, you need to remember that, when living your life, when sitting at your desk or in your car, or when considering whether to tell someone else about spinal care.
Our premise is that before we take a drug, we exhaust all other attempts at wellness. And the moment we start taking a drug, we do the same to get off of it.
