What if we could be limitless? What if we could function at our best and full potential without pain weighing us down?  Thankfully, neurologically based chiropractic care can give us those options.

 

Believe it or not, back pain can actually increase mortality rate.  This makes total sense, because how can we focus on taking care of ourselves when all we can think about is how much pain we’re in? We must get to the root of the issue instead of just masking symptoms.  It’s time to stop letting subluxation take away our quality of life.

 

Many people choose chiropractic for other reasons, such as prevention. It’s much easier to prevent than fix, so giving our bodies the chance to function optimally before underlying issues occur is truly “nipping it in the bud,” thereby stopping many issues before they even start.

 

True, it may seem like an easier way out to just try and mask the pain – but imagine if there was a way to get rid of it completely.  Chiropractic gives us that option, and with time and repetition, we can allow our bodies to heal and function the way God intended – and wouldn’t it be amazing to truly live instead of just exist?

 

 

Lee’s Story:

For many years, Lee suffered with back pain, sharp pain when sitting or standing, and pain when bending over.  Unfortunately, this restricted his activities, including his love for running.  After receiving chiropractic care, Lee had less pain and was able to run again.  Even after having a couple major setbacks due to woodsplitting and ax work, he still saw improvement in back pain, neck motion, and better posture.  Lee’s wife and sons now also get adjusted, which has resulted in less pain for them as well. Lee recommends chiropractic care to anyone who is sick, suffering, or in pain. “The office is positive, uplifting, and encouraging.”

Subluxation on one single nerve can cause a multitude of issues.  For example, Bell’s Palsy is a condition that causes partial to complete facial paralysis, resulting in one side of the face, eye, and mouth to droop. This can be pretty scary, as these symptoms are similar to those of a stroke!  Paralysis of the face can cause drooling, dry eyes, inability to make facial expressions, loss of taste, and headaches – just to name a few.  The facial nerve controls these functions, and if there’s pressure on it, there is no wonder we can see such a multitude of issues!

 

A recent study shows an elderly man with Bell’s Palsy who decided to try chiropractic after no lasting relief with steroids or eye drops.  After time and repetition with chiropractic care, his facial paralysis was completely gone!

 

It’s important to remember that chiropractic is not a cure, but when the brain, spinal cord and body can communicate without interruption, the body can function the way God intended.

 

 

Judy’s Chiropractic Story

 

My family and I did not get sick this past year!

 

Judy had pain in her upper back and shoulders, allergies, palsy, and glaucoma.  “My pain levels were often a level 6-7, the palsy was mild but progressively getting worse, and my allergies were severe and debilitating at times.”

Previous care only gave her mild or temporary relief. After getting adjusted, Judy says, “Some effects which were immediate were better sleep and remembering dreams.  Gradually the pain decreased, and flexibility increased.  My family and I did not get sick this past year! The office is very friendly, thorough, and informative.”
