What’s better than trusting yourself again?

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on June 3, 2011

One of the great things about having had clients stick with me for over ten years is that you have the benefit of lots of feedback in little bits over a long time.  Instead of trying to fill out some form with objective data at the end of a care plan, you get to hear how chiropractic has affected people’s lives in real time and in real ways.

One of the things I hear all the time from folks that have been with me for a long time is “You know, since I’ve been getting adjusted, I seem to know when things aren’t right.”  Another thing I love to hear is “I feel better about asking my doctor questions these days.  I wouldn’t have done that before.”

I wish that more people knew what chiropractic really is.  Obviously, lots of folks (maybe most) think it’s a drug-free, non-surgical approach to correcting chronic back pain.  Sure, it works for that.  But really, chiropractic is first a philosophy.  A philosophy whose premise is that all things are organized, whether living or inorganic.  In living things that organization is responsible for keeping you healthy and performing at your maximum potential.  Watching that principle play out in my life and the lives of those who use my service is one of the most awe inspiring experiences in my life.  The philosophy of chiropractic is “Why” we do what we do.

Chiropractic is also a science.  As such, we understands how it works.  We know that that organization I just mentioned flows over the nervous system and that any interference or disruption in how the body and brain communicate will affect how your body functions.  We call that a state of dis-ease.  If that communication is allowed to persist, eventually dysfunction can become disease that eventually leads to symptoms and death.  The science of chiropractic is “What” we do.

Chiropractic is also an art.  Every practitioner has their own way of expressing the art of chiropractic.  It’s our technique and mental approach to what we do.  It’s the “How” of what we do.

My kind of chiropractor is most concerned that you understand your body.  I want you to KNOW that you were designed perfectly and capable of adapting to most of life’s challenges.  And mostly, I want you to trust your instincts.  After all, “What’s better than trusting yourself again?”
