I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard a new patient say to me “my Doctor told me I’m just going to have to learn to live with this pain/health problem”. This is shocking to me as I believe that as a Doctor caring for the sick one must do everything they can to help their patients even if it means going outside of their current knowledge to develop new approaches. Perhaps even more shocking is that patients accept the “learn to live with it” mentality and settle for a life experience that is so much less than they know that deep down inside they should have.
In my experience as a Chiropractor caring for thousands of patients over the years the reason people’s health challenges become chronic and in some cases lifelong is that 1. The patient (and even Doctor) is missing the fundamental cause of the problem. If the cause is (and most times it is) that you are not healing due to a disconnect in your nerve system (vertebral subluxation) then all the drugs, diets, exercise plans and surgeries in the world are not going to help you.
2. From a chiropractic standpoint, the critical factor is the amount of time you are living without nerve interference, which is the relationship between the number and intensity of physical, chemical and mental stressors you experience and how often you are adjusted (i.e. if your life is very busy and stressful than you need to be adjusted frequently enough to ensure that you are not going for days or weeks with often unfelt nerve pressure). If I as a Doctor of Chiropractic can adjust you frequently enough to keep the pressure off your nerve system most of the time than there is no limit to the healing that can happen for you. Here at Clearview Chiropractic the only thing we believe you should have to live with is a life of fantastic wellness!
