We’ve seen patients come in to our office who have had neck or back pain for months, sometimes even years. For one reason or another, they have simply put off seeking medical attention and have just dealt with the pain day to day, limited their activity, and have noticed a diminished quality of life.
When we asked one patient why she put off seeking help, she responded:
“At first it wasn’t that bad, it was more of a discomfort that I was able to ignore most days. As the days turned into weeks and then months, I gradually noticed a little more pain, especially if I overdid it that day. So, instead of getting help, I made sure to stop my activities when I noticed the pain or I would take breaks throughout the day. I was afraid of getting treatment, so I decided to just deal with it. Eventually I got to the point where I was barely living. I stopped my weekly walks with friends because it would aggravate my back, I had my husband do the grocery shopping for me, and I even stopped picking up my grandkids when they came to visit. I got to the point where I didn’t want to do anything because I was in pain. This was not what I imagined my life to be like. We moved to The Villages after retirement because we wanted to be able to enjoy life, however, I was no longer enjoying my life… I was missing out on it! I finally decided that I needed help – that there had to be something I could do. I was no longer afraid of getting treatment, I was more afraid of being in pain the rest of my life!”
Yes, neck and back pain treatment can be scary! Medications can be addictive, steroid injections can hurt, and surgery can have complications and takes months to recover from. And, if you’ve never been treated by a chiropractor, it can probably seem like an intimidating process. When it comes to chiropractic care, many people are not sure what to expect. But, if you’re experiencing chronic pain, chances are, you will greatly benefit from seeking chiropractic care. For those of you that have never been to a chiropractor, you might have some questions about the process. Hopefully, this article will help to answer some of these questions:
“I’m not sure what to Expect from Chiropractic Care.”
1. Your doctor will get a feel for your medical and family history; along with talking about some of the symptoms you’ve been experiencing, and preexisting medical conditions, injuries, etc.
2. Your doctor will then test your basic health and focus on the problem area; testing range of motion, muscle strength, etc.
3. After your doctor has evaluated your conditions, he will diagnose your problems and recommend treatment.
“Aren’t Chiropractor’s Expensive?”
The cost of chiropractic treatments such as spinal decompression are normally less than what you would spend seeking alternative healthcare options, such as surgery, epidurals, and expensive medications. Chiropractic treatment is a low-cost alternative to treating a wide variety of health conditions.
Plus, if you’ve been experiencing chronic pain, isn’t it worth it to not have to deal with the pain anymore? You can’t put a price on your pain relief!
“Is a Chiropractor Really Necessary?”
If you have ever experienced chronic back or neck pain, you know that it doesn’t go away on it’s own. You have probably tried treating it with painkillers, exercising, stretching, and even ignoring it. But your pain keeps coming back.
The longer you put off managing the pain, the worse it will get. In most situations, Doctors have found that in severe cases, diagnosing the problem earlier would have made all the difference in the world. In the beginning, most conditions start out as mild annoyances, and only get worse and worse until it is too late. The longer you wait, the worse your pain will get.
