When the Physician Says No to Chiro
A practice member asked me this week, what can she say to friends who tell her their medical doctors says they shouldn't go to a chiropractor. The person she was talking about had a disc issue and the medical doctor said chiropractic would damage the disc.
Here's my response:
Tell your friend, the physician may not know there are many types of adjusting techniques, especially gentle, low force adjusting methods.
Something important chiropractors can provide is nutritional counseling. We can teach someone how to feed the disc so it can be less inflamed. Proper chiropractic care and nutrition will also help the nearby joints. Neighboring joints often take on more stress as the injured area is immobilized and becoming calcified.
The most important part of caring for degenerated joints are the nerves. We must keep the nerve energy ignited. Nerve communication stagnates. A damaged joint means damage to the nerve over time. Other areas of the body are also impacted. Most medical specialists don't look beyond the injured site.
If anyone has questions, a chiropractic consult can help someone understand how chiropractic care can address quality of life.
Long term practice members know that but we have to let our non-chiro friends learn this information so that can come aboard, too. Sharing your own story is the best way to get the chiropractic message to everyone.
