Everyone can think of something they could be doing that would make their life better. Things like eating healthier, going to the gym more, or getting more sleep. But something always gets in the way—time, money, value, or maybe just because we don’t think we really need to. However, we rarely view something like going to the dentist as an option because we all know what will happen if we don’t.

Unfortunately, as a society, we haven’t really been educated on what can happen if we don’t take proper care of our spines. Just like the dentist, chiropractic care should be viewed as something necessary for long term health and wellness. And, in most cases, you can utilize your health insurance.

Why go to a chiropractor in the first place?

What’s your first instinct when you have one of those behind-your-eyes headaches after a stressful workday? Or when someone left the window open during ragweed season and you can’t stop sneezing? Or when, for the third night in a row, you can’t fall asleep? We’ve all been there. And when we are, we want a fix—now!

Commercials promise feel-better solutions contained in convenient pills, shots, and liquids. What they don’t disclose (or do by way of an auctioneer’s voiceover while you’re distracted by a happy family and their golden retriever) is that their medication only really serves to mute your body’s cry for help.

Medication might help you feel better, but does it actually heal you?

The purpose of symptoms is to let us know something’s not right. When we cover up those symptoms with medication we often complicate and sometimes even prolong our conditions. At Ability Chiropractic, we want our patients to gain a better understanding of the body and its incredible potential to heal itself.

Instead of covering up symptoms, chiropractors identify the root cause of issues like brain fog and decreased energy, and remove any interferences that are slowing the body’s healing process. Chiropractic places the power back in your hands and focuses on healing the body from the inside out so that you don’t have to rely on outside forces to dictate your health.

On your first visit, you can look forward to gaining a better understanding of how the shape and health of your spine relates directly to the function of every single part of your body. You’ll learn how a curvature problem in your neck could be a contributing factor to your anxiety, or how degeneration in your lumbar spine affects how well you’re able to digest the food you eat.

Create a health-focused future for yourself by adding consistent chiropractic adjustments to your wellness routine, as you do with the gym or the dentist. Your body will thank you for prioritizing what makes you happier and healthier. As a bonus, you’ll also save money and spend less time restocking your medicine cabinet.
