Chiropractic, or “choir-practic” as some close relatives refer to it, is what I do and I cannot imagine doing anything else. Not everyone is able to make that statement about their job so I feel fortunate that I can about mine.
But what really is chiropractic?
The first thought that comes to many minds is “it’s where you go to get your back ‘cracked.’” If you have only ever gone to your chiropractor for spinal injuries you are missing out.
Chiropractic is so much more than getting your spine adjusted. Though spinal dysfunction MAY lead to many other health related conditions such as: knee pain, shoulder pain, foot pain, and headaches just to name a few.
To me, chiropractic is more about looking for the root cause of an injury or condition.
As a biochemistry major, I love working with nutrition to heal the body from the inside out.
As an athlete, I love breaking down the biomechanics of a movement to re-establish proper patterns.
As a doctor, I love watching patients make changes that affect their lives! If I ever lose those loves maybe I’ll try “choir-practic” instead, just imagine a chiropractor that also sings “We will, we will, crack you!”
Homework: Call your chiropractor and make an appointment with them! If you’ve never been to one be open minded it never hurts to go in for a consultation.
