I’m Still Amazed at Chiropractic Care

by Heather

I started chiropractic care almost 9 years ago for neck, shoulder and mid-back issues due to poor posture. Within the first two treatments I was pain free. It didn’t take long for me notice that when properly aligned, I didn’t experience the stomach/digestive issues as I had previously, I slept better, I didn’t have the nagging headaches, and overall I just felt better. To be honest, I wasn’t sure if I was imagining things or that it was coincidental. I finally asked my chiropractor about it and she explained how the spinal cord worked and how if it’s not aligned (or kinked) anything below that spot is going to be affected. Chiropractic care isn't just neck and back either. I’ve had my wrists adjusted (I thought carpal tunnel syndrome – come to find out the small bones in my wrist were out of alignment) along with my knees and hips. My chiropractor was crucial in keeping me comfortable during both my pregnancies as I had issues with my sciatic and my hips. Chiropractic care has helped my infant son with issues of spitting up. I’m still constantly amazed at how chiropractic care can make such a difference. Even if I’m not experiencing any physical pain per se, I can tell when I’m out of alignment based on how my body feels. My stomach and digestive track issues reappear when my mid-back is out of alignment. Over the years Chiropractic care has helped me become more in tune with my body.
