Especially during this time in our world, everyone is looking for a way to stay healthy and avoid sickness.  A single chiropractic adjustment can boost the immune system by 200%!  Everyone wants to live a healthy, pain free life free from sickness.

Chiropractic care offers an option for better quality of life.  Adjustments remove subluxation, or nerve interference, and therefore aid the body in functioning optimally.  As we age, our range of motion can decrease, so it’s important to get adjusted regularly as consistent care allows us the ability to do the things we enjoy longer.

Elderly patients could see better balance, improvement in walking, and less pain!  For example, a 70 year old woman in a recent study suffered with reduced range of motion and 20 years of pain.  She reported better head posture, balance, and range of motion after only a month of care!  She then continued with wellness care and hasn’t complained of returned symptoms!

Regular adjustments keep people out of the hospital and able to work and enjoy the lives they work so hard to build for themselves and their families.

 

“We did not get sick this past year!”

 

I have suffered with cerebral palsy, allergies, glaucoma, and pain in my upper back and shoulders for years. My pain level was not excruciating, but it was progressively getting worse. My allergies were severe and debilitating at times.

 

Before starting care, I went to different places trying to find relief for my back pain, but it was always temporary, and I needed something to last. Through a natural path, I found small relief for my severe allergies, but nothing I tried worked for everything.

 

I never had any doubts about Dr. Micheal and that chiropractic care would help with my overall health! When I came into the office, I thought the staff were very friendly, thorough and informative.

 

My husband is also under care at Integral Chiropractic Co.; he has struggled with lower back pain, sharp pain when standing, sitting, or even bending the wrong way. He had dealt with it for years and was ready to be rid of the pain as well. His first impression was how positive, uplifting and encouraging the office was for him. He saw improvements in his back pain, neck motion, his ability to run and even had better posture!

 

The first and almost immediate result I felt under chiropractic care was finally being able to sleep and fall into a deep enough that I could remember my dreams! Gradually the pain began to decrease, and I even saw my flexibility increase! It was an awesome thing to experience. My favorite result is that neither I nor my husband got sick once this past year!

 

I would recommend chiropractic care to anyone that is sick, suffering or in pain. My husband and I are now in less pain and are able to sleep and function so much better! There are even 3 generations of our family who are under care at Integral Chiropractic Co.! Everyone here is so friendly, and I am thankful for this natural way to health!

Recurring pain and symptoms can be anything from frustrating to debilitating.  Many patients often have no idea when pain or flareups will occur.  This can be disruptive in our busy lives and potentially cause depression and fear of the unknown.  So how can we predict these flare ups and keep them from happening?

Some patients prefer to just “work through the pain”  or “take it as it comes.”  Maintenance care has been found to be more effective than merely getting adjusted in the presence of symptoms.  Symptoms should not be treated as they come up, but rather work to prevent them from returning.

An important thing about chiropractic care is that consistent time and repetition yields the best results. Chiropractic maintenance can help pain not to return in the future.  Research has shown that maintenance care provides a patient with less pain in their life than just getting adjusted when there are symptoms present.  Improving the structure of the spine with chiropractic care can lessen the time and chance of a flare up so patients can enjoy a better quality of life.

Life is not just about being “okay,” but thriving!

 

 

 

At six months into my care, I am walking virtually pain free!

 

I have one leg shorter than the other, causing a limp, hip pain, knee pain, ankle pain and low back pain.  My hips were way out of alignment.  I’m disabled due to this condition, and have suffered with it for 21 years.  My orthopedist has done surgery on my right leg five times, and my physical therapist helped me to walk somewhat normally.

 

My wife was already a practice member with Dr. Micheal, but I was skeptical about trying chiropractic care to help with my symptoms.  However, I told Dr. Micheal that if my wife saw improvement, I would become a patient.  She improved, I became a patient, and I have nothing but praise for Dr. Micheal, his staff, and God!!!

 

At six months into my care, I am walking virtually pain free!  My hip, knee, ankle and back pain are almost eliminated completely!  I am walking just about normal with little to no limp.  My wife is being treated for fibromyalgia, back pain, degenerative disc, and sciatic nerve problems, and has seen improvement as well.

 

I recommend neurologically based chiropractic care with Dr. Micheal!  This unorthodox and different method has improved the quality of my life dramatically!
