I'm really glad I could help-it is so important to go see a physician first, keep track of all your symptoms, etc. But also there are so many more
ways to look at our body as a machine without stuffing painkillers down it just because a Dr.s test doesn't find an immediate positive on a test
Case in point #1: you might know someone who has popped out a rib-I did it once and it felt like I was having a heart attack...severe shooting pain
every time I took a breath...so then I began to suspect it was skeletal when I started doing some yoga poses to relieve the pressure. Sure enough,
popped a rib, took 4 seconds to correct this pain at the chiro. Later that week I spoke to a friend who had the same thing happen and we discussing
how much it hurt, etc. They ended up going straght to the E.R and all the doctor could "do" was give them painkillers and they sufferd for a few
weeks in pain without being able to work before they figured out they needed a Chiro.
Case in point #2: I suffered from severe chronic ear infections since I was a child. I mentioned this to my chiro and they moved my jaw back in to
place. I haven't had one since, even when I have the flu or a sinus infection. The rate of childhood ear problems has shot up and so has "forceful"
childbirth so there are many MEDICAL (not just chiropractors or osteopathic) studies now to show this has led to a simple slight dislocation of the
jaw which causes an air pocket and then, chronic infections.
A quick word of advice: there are two kinds of chiropractors out there. One just kind of caters to "pain" sports injuries, back pain, joint pain,
tmj, etc. These are the more common kinds, and loaded with some of the most skilled chiros out there, don't get me wrong! But these are the kinds
people usually complain about saying its so similar to a factory.
The other kind is the well-trained chiro whose philosophy is to treat the whole body (and mind) not just with adjustments, but they are able to tell
how every organ is working externally and will tell you if you need to go to a physician or if you need to make a personal lifestyle change. They will
see you as little or as much and you need and want. No pressure.
I highly recommend the latter due to the fact that they spend so much time with you and they know your body from head to toe and can tell right away
if there is a problem! Most chiros truly do what they do because they completely believe in it, have seen it do so many amazing things that mainstream
medicine couldn't fix, and really do want to help people. For almost the same time and money they could have become M.Ds. The most important thing is
that you do what you think is right for your body.
