First of all, do you have a Momentum?
We would like you to focus your attention for the next few minutes on discovering with us why you should visit a chiropractor as soon as possible if you want to enjoy all the benefits of chiropracticc care to improve the quality of your life. Even if you don’t have any health problems (or at least, apparently).
Although we could have started by asking you if you also suffer from back pain, neck pain, low back pain or other health problems, which are often the main reasons for many patients to start chiropractic care, we prefer to approach it from Momentum’s philosophy. But first, let’s answer your main question:
Start chiropractic care to treat back pain, lower back pain…?
And indeed, we will not deny the great effectiveness of chiropractic to remedy ailments such as back and neck pain, both for pain reduction and to treat possible physical disabilities, as indicated by the results of the study conducted by Dunning et al. (2012) or the study by Senna and Machaly (2011) on the effectiveness of chiropractic in chronic low back pain, among many other health problems.
However, at Momentum Quiropràctic we believe that chiropractic should be understood as a proactive response, rather than reactive. That is to say, not to visit the chiropractor only when we suffer from a physical health condition, but to begin to take care of our spine and optimise the nervous system to prevent these health conditions.
Hence, you should know that pain or any other symptom usually appears after some time (it can even be years after) since our body has not been working properly. For this reason, we like to remind you that:
Symptoms are just the tip of the iceberg
For this reason, here are the 5 reasons that we believe that can motivate you to start chiropractic care whether you suffer from any health condition or not.
5 reasons to start seeing a chiropractor
Reach your full potential and inner empowerment
Chiropractic works in an holistic way. Therefore, by taking care of your spine and the correction of its subluxations (displaced vertebrae that prevent the correct functioning of the body), we manage to optimise the nervous system to (re)connect the body with its innate potential, which we will talk about in the following arguments 😉
Therefore, chiropractic is an empowering practice that optimises your body so you can reach your full potential with wellness. Or as we call it in Momentum Chiropractic, reach your inner empowerment.
Become more efficient
We have already made reference in some of our posts to the relationship between cognitive performance and the state of our spine.
It is really important for our cognitive efficiency that our spine is free of interference and, therefore, it can function properly by the fact that 90% of the stimulus and nutrition to the brain is generated by the movement of the spine.
For this reason, chiropractic is often used as health care in high-performance work environments (such as Apple and its Employee Wellness Center) to promote employee efficiency and wellness.
