Why is a chiropractor used?
A chiropractor is used to improve a patient’s nervous system function by focusing on the underlying cause of your back pain and other symptoms, instead of suppressing them. Chiropractic adjustments of the spine, joints, and muscles can quickly cause relief, and improve spinal and extremity joint mobility. At Performance Health, our chiropractor’s main goal is to help reduce your back pain and correct any spinal problems.
Do I need to see a chiropractor if my back pain goes away?
Many people visit a chiropractor only when they are experiencing extreme back pain. While this is an important time to have your back evaluated by a medical professional, it is not always the only time that a chiropractor can help improve your health.
Commonly, patients will assume that is if they don’t feel back pain anymore, their condition has been “miraculously cured.” It is vital to remember that pain is only sometimes an indication of your spinal health. In most cases, back pain only becomes a symptom of a spinal problem when the condition has escalated.
Our chiropractors take this fact into consideration and usually suggest that our patients continue to receive spinal care even after symptoms are gone. Stopping care when your pain is reduced or starts to disappear, increases the chance of the condition—and pain—returning.
