Can I Afford Chiropractic Care?
Really, the question should be, “Can I afford not to see a chiropractor”?I’m getting ahead of myself.  Once you truly understand and realize the profound effects that chiropractic care has on your health, well being and every single aspect of your life, you’d never want your family to not have regular care.  But it takes time to fully grasp through intellect and experience the wonders of your body that are revealed through the chiropractic adjustment process.

Short term care.  Generally, people first come to chiropractors with some kind of ache or pain.  These things take more time to develop than most people realize but actually can resolve rather quickly considering the depth of the roots of pain.  Often in just a few weeks, you can begin to feel like your old self again.  The total cost for short term care may be in the hundreds of dollars.  Compare that with a trip to the emergency room, which could easily run into the thousands.  Often without resolution of the problem.

Most people in our area can afford our services for their whole family to be checked on a regular basis.  Imagine the long term savings on trips to the ER, or specialists.

I just found out that whenever a senior citizen goes to a chiropractor, it SAVES medicare $300!  I’m definitely not charging enough.

Is Chiropractic Good For…?
Of course!  “Wait, I haven’t asked about a specific condition yet!  You chiropractors think you can cure everthing.”

Not at all.  Remember, YOU are doing all the healing around here.  Chiropractic adjustments simply allow your natural healing powers to come forth and do their job.

We are meant to be well.  It is our natural state.  Chiropractic restores the ability you were born with to be free of ANY medical condition.  Really. Chiropractic is good for babies, kids, teens, young adults, adults, seniors, dogs, cats, horses, any creature with a spine lives better when the spine does its job of protecting and TUNING the nervous system.  A healthy spine allows for a healthy nervous system which maximizes the expression of LIFE ENERGY, which is what does the healing.  See?

Will I Get Addicted to Chiropractic?
Hey, I wish!  Then we could see some really fantastic changes in more people’s lives.  Many folks actually take years to fully align and strengthen all of the tissues of the spine and neighboring structures after the initial “relief phase” of care is over.  Sometimes people suspend their care when they simple FEEL better only to suffer a relapse later on.

No, there is no such thing as chiropractic addiction.  You can stop care at any time.  Just like brushing your teeth!

Those of us who continue having regular checkups and adjustments as needed (sometimes every week) experience deeper levels of wellness than we could have imagined.  See, because everything in this universe is always changing, including our bodies, we get sicker or healthier every day.  One of the three major things we need to do to keep getting better is to maintain the neurological connection between the brain and every other cell in the body. This is accomplished by adjusting the spine because it is so intimately connected to the central nervous system. A healthy spine maximizes the expression of life energy in the body because it ensures that the nerves can perform their task of bringing VITALITY to all of your cells.  Now think about that.  NO life energy = death, even though all the parts are present.  Life is not a chemical phenomenon.  Medium expression of life energy = medium healthy function.  Maybe symptoms, maybe not.  Maximum expression = better and better function, health, wellness and continued improvement toward WHOLENESS for a lifetime!  I could get used to that!

Naturally!

The purpose of chiropractic adjustments is to restore the neurological connection between your brain and your body.  Who but a chiropractor can determine if the nervous system is clear?  Its like brushing and flossing your teeth but not really knowing if you have a cavity unless you consult the expert.

AND it depends on your goal.  Sometimes people just want to improve their health just enough that they FEEL better.  Hey, there are lots of ways to accomplish that, for a while.  But pills wear off don’t they?  And exercises that strengthen and “balance” back muscles often just get you strong enough to carry your dysfunctional spine around without discomfort.  Until you run out of room to accommodate the problem. Remember that everything is always in the process of becoming something else.  So if the underlying cause of your body’s cry for help is not properly addressed, things will get worse.  ALSO, if spinal misalignment or dysfunction is disrupting messages between your brain and muscles, it is also disrupting messages between your brain and organs of your body.
