Can Chiropractic Help With (My Condition)?

There could be many answers to this question. I’ll make things simple, but first we need to get a bit more clarity about what chiropractic even IS in the first place.

can chiropractic help with my conditionChiropractic is the science art and philosophy of a health system that has at its core the belief that there is an innate intelligence that orchestrates life in your body. And, in order for YOU to live life at your highest potential, you need your innate intelligence – coordinated via your nervous system – to be free of any interference. Interference to your nervous system causes a disruption of the flow of impulses that orchestrate life in your body.


This is not to imply that other health professionals don’t recognize a healing intelligence within the body, it’s just readily ignored in an attempt to ‘shoosh’ any symptoms you may be experiencing – like pressing the snooze button on your alarm clock instead of waking up.

The snooze button just delays the inevitable of having to wake up. Simply suppressing your symptoms of your condition will not help your body heal and, in many cases, may inhibit the natural healing process. But, no one wants to be in pain or suffer.

So, where does this leave us?

Where it leaves us is with a choice. A choice for how you really want to address your health concern and condition. On the surface, everyone would say that they just want the pain to go away. Of course, this is a great motivator. However, in my 15 years of practice, when people are offered the choice of short-term results or long-term changes, they overwhelmingly choose long-term changes.

This choice means that you are committing to finding the underlying cause of your problem, good for you! Just like waking up, it is inevitable anyway, but consciously making this choice first (or somewhat early on) will help you get to the health and life you want more quickly.

Ironic, isn’t it, choosing the long-term solution gives you the quickest road to ultimate recovery than seeking short-term gains. The story of the rabbit and the hare comes to mind.

Now, about your condition. Chiropractic has a long track record of helping people with all sorts of health conditions. One of the more obscure ones is the influenza epidemic of 1918. More common conditions that chiropractors help people with besides the obvious headaches and back pain are things like asthma, irritable bowel syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome and enhancing immune system function.

We could fill this site up with posts about how chiropractic helps with the flu and other immune boosting articles. I’ve written a few of these regarding boosting your child’s immune system and others. It has to do with the way that the immune and nervous systems are connected with one another.

There are a variety of complaints regarding upper back pain or shoulder pain that can also be helped through appropriate chiropractic care. The only way for you to know for sure is to contact a local chiropractor in your area that specializes in the location and correction of vertebral subluxations. These are distortions in the way the spine and nerve system relate with one another. Only your chiropractor checks for these and he or she is the only one that corrects them.

Physical therapy, acupuncture, massage and pharmaceuticals have their place, but do not replace the correction of your subluxations. If this is what is causing your problem, then having it addressed is the only way you’ll find long-term relief. And, this is exactly what you want.
