I don’t do that

Results in your health come from a handful of important things you can do to be healthy. You do not have to be perfect, to be healthy. I see this incorrect thought all the time in healthcare.

EXAMPLE:
A patient goes to a healthcare provider. For this example, let’s say a chiropractor. The patient is immediately told that he or she needs to receive chiropractic care, along with other recommendations to stop the progression of ill-health, and diminished life experience. Sounds about right, however here is the issue that often ensues:
How many “other recommendations”?
Most of the time it will involve:
vitamins
pillows
orthotics
electric stimulation
heat or ice
massage
exercises
stretches
diet modification
detoxification remedies
gels or lotions (biofreeze)

The chiropractor may actually believe that these things are good for the patient, and some may be, however are they really necessary? The truth is that my own profession will often overstep their knowledge, and profession, by recommending things that are out of the scope of chiropractic. That is not what we do.
We do one thing, and we do it well. We adjust. In order to adjust, we analyze the spine and nervous system for the presence of subluxation. A subluxation is interference to the impulse in your nervous system. We find that subluxation, and remove it. If we find that there is something else that you need other than chiropractic, we will refer you to the proper intelligent individual in that specialty.
