Let’s be honest, there are more like 100 reasons, but for the sake of time here are the top 10 reasons you need a chiropractor in your life RIGHT NOW!
Your nervous system controls everything that happens in your body. Spinal stress = Nervous system stress.
Posture improvement. We sit more than ever and it is evident by people’s posture. We look more like hunched over apes then we do erect, strong humans. Chiropractors help with this.
Stress relief. Have you ever noticed that when you get stressed your body becomes very tense and tight? Chiropractic to the rescue.
Headache relief. Due to poor posture and stress people are having more headaches than ever. Subluxations in the neck irritate the nerves causing your headaches. Chiropractors adjust and remove subluxations.
Prevention of health issues. I help my patients to identify their negative health habits and create new positive habits which helps them to stay healthier for longer.
Energy. Are you feeling fatigued and sluggish? A proper, specific adjustment can wake you up faster than a shot of espresso!
Improved athletic performance. There is a reason most all professional sports teams have a chiropractor on staff. Here’s a secret, it’s not to help with injuries, it’s to improve the performance of the athletes.
Avoid surgery. If your first point of contact for a pain condition is a Chiropractor, your chance of having a surgery is much less than compared to if you see a medical doctor first.
Age gracefully. Healthier people age better than unhealthy people. Seeing a chiropractor regularly and being proactive towards your health instead of reactive will help you to maintain your health and wellness.
You have a spine! Like any other possession you have, if you do not take care of it, it will decay and fail. Do you take care of your teeth? Do you take care of your car? Your house? Hopefully the answer to these questions is YES! If you don’t take care of your teeth, car or house you can always replace them. Don’t take care of your spine there is no replacement option…you only get one!!

Ia gain wanted to thank everyone for their patience during this transition. We will be having another transition here in the office in 2 weeks. Don’t worry, we are not moving again!! Our office software which handles all of our scheduling, insurance billing and payment processing is changing. We do not anticipate any issues during this transitions, but if any do arise please be patient with us. The most important thing you can do that would help us is to ensure all of your information is up to date with Elisha. Make sure we have the correct insurance information, your address, email address and cell phone number.
Why the Change?
We are striving to make our office more papeless and environmental friendly. You will notice that we will no longer have sign in sheets, you will now be checking-in on an ipad at the front desk each time you come in. We will now be able to communicate directly with you via text message. There are a lot of great changes with this new software and I am sure you will love it just as much as we do!
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
