Sharing the Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Clear Lake City Chiropractor Comments: Today I would like to ask people to share the benefits of chiropractic care. There are numerous people who benefit from chiropractic care, but it is also important that you share your experiences with other people. While many people enjoy being treated by their doctor of chiropractic so that they can get well without the need for dangerous drugs and possible surgeries, too many other people do not know what to expect when they visit a chiropractor. Instead, the fear of the unknown or just being uninformed keeps them from trying chiropractic.
When I was first opened my chiropractic office in 1990, I remember overhearing a conversation at the table next to me about a patient’s chiropractic visit. She was explaining to her friends how much better her back pain was and how she could play tennis again, pain free. She explained how her chiropractor had helped her so much. One friend asked her if she was not scared about getting her bones “cracked” and perhaps becoming worse off. Luckily, the patient explained what a chiropractic adjustment was and that it did not hurt at all. She also mentioned that she did not want to take medicine because she had children to take care off and the pills would not fix the problem. Her friend was surprised with the answer and said that she would consider going to a chiropractor in the future. It was wonderful seeing what an informed response could do to change someone’s perception.
Some people only think that chiropractors treat back pain or accident victims. They are surprised when they talk to someone who went for relief of their headaches or brought their child for earaches.
We see this when we ask our patients to write an online review. We want them to let people know what their chiropractic experience was and their results. Many people assume that everyone knows the benefits of chiropractic care, but in fact they do not. In 2022 35 million people in America used chiropractic care, but that is only 10% of the population.
If more people tried drug free chiropractic care, then we could reduce our dependance on opioids, require less surgeries, and experience the pleasure of health.
