Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

My Concern

Having been in the chiropractic profession for over 25 years I have had the opportunity to work with a wide range of cases. One case in particular brought one of the things I fear to life. You see when working with each and every patient, I worry about how this person will respond to care and how will they continue to take care of themselves after I am no longer working with them. So when I analyze what a person needs, I am always concerned about their future health. This particular case was not too different than most cases that enter the office. He was a 38 year old male suffering from moderate to severe lower back pain with pain radiating down the back of his right leg (sciatica). After taking his history and performing an exam I felt that x-rays were necessary. I saw some areas in his lower spine that needed a fair amount of attention in an effort to prevent damage in the future. He declined and only wanted a few adjustments to be out of pain. After about two weeks under my care he was pain free and decided he no longer wanted to continue treatment.

About 8 years later this same patient entered my office with severe lower back pain and pain radiating into both legs. During the exam I noticed a couple of red flags so we took another set of films. The films revealed severe damage to his lower back and I instructed him to go to the emergency room immediately. This case happened several years ago but I still think about it often. To have someone go through something that they could have prevented is troubling to say the least. So I urge people to gather as much information as you can about your condition so that you can make an informed decision that will benefit your long term health.
