Benefits Beyond Pain

We’ve narrowed down some of the most important pieces of information from the article Benefits Beyond Pain by Dr. Mercola (linked below) for our patients to have a deeper understanding of Chiropractic care!

  • Contrary to popular belief, chiropractic can be used to optimize wellness, not just treat pain 
  • Subluxation refers to misalignment or dysfunction in your spine, which will interfere with the signals traveling across those nerves. This can cause pain, as well as dysfunction in your internal organs
  • Getting regular chiropractic treatments can help prevent progressive spinal degeneration, i.e. osteoarthritis or disc disease
  • Just like regular dental care will prolong the useful life of your teeth, getting regular chiropractic treatments can do the same for your spine
  • Your spinal column, the vertebrae, and the discs, also protect your most delicate and important system — your nervous system — and impingements can contribute to a number of health problems and ailments
  • “Where I think chiropractic shines is that we address the cause of the problem. Somebody might have high blood pressure. Their high blood pressure is not due to the fact that they [lack] high blood pressure medication. Many times if there’s nerve interference lowering the expression and function of organs, it can contribute to the body not functioning at 100 percent, which leaves it more susceptible to, as we in chiropractic say, ‘Dis-Ease’ and then the body becomes sick or symptomatic. What we like to do is look at the individual holistically and see what’s going on with their nervous system. ” – Dr. DeMoss
  • “I want people to understand that when something’s not working in your body, there are things that we can do to make it work, other than drugs and surgery. It’s so sad that people have this limited belief set on what chiropractic is about. It’s more than just you coming in and seeing us as a Band-Aid to get rid of your pain.” -Dr. DeMoss
