In today’s day and age it seems people are more and more confused about who to turn to when they have an injury or health concern. Medicine has changed a lot in the past 30 years, and today it seems that medicine has become very specialized, perhaps to the detriment of the families seeking help. Do you seriously need an orthopedic specialist to check an ankle sprain? Is it really necessary to have $3000 worth of testing to properly diagnose an allergy? And what about knee pain – most orthopedics feel the only treatment for knee pain if it’s non-surgical is to take pain meds constantly, but it’s not true, there are other options!
Perhaps you didn’t know this, but the practice of Chiropractic was never meant to be about exclusively treating back pain. While we certainly are superiorly qualified to handle any lower back complaint, chiropractors are nervous system doctors. Your nervous system controls every single function of your body. We can influence the nervous system by adjusting the bones of the spine or even the bones of the hand, wrist, foot, ankle or knee or shoulder. Injuries happen, poor postural habits distort and twist bones out of alignment and put pressure on the nerves which in turn can create any number of health problems. My job as a chiropractor is to re-align the bones, enhance proper motion and take that pressure off the nervous system so it can do its job to heal your body. This is what every chiropractor is trained to do. But, just as today’s medicine has evolved and specialized, today’s chiropractors are trained to do more than only adjust the spine.
My patients consider me their drug-less physician. In my practice, you can come to me with any health issue you might have. If you don’t know where to turn, why not start with me? I have extensive training in nutritional, herbal and homeopathic healing, I am a Nationally Certified Health Coach, and a Nationally Certified Acupuncturist. I also have training on every topic that a general practice MD has with the exception of prescribing drugs and performing surgery. Life is messy and complicated and busy. Who has time to go from specialist to specialist spending money and seeking answers, when I’m right here and I can help? This is what my patients in Illinois learned very quickly. They sought my advice and care for a whole host of medical conditions that you may not think a Chiropractor would have any expertise on (but we do).
You have questions and I have answers. I look forward to helping you achieve your health goals!
