Chiropractic has changed my life for the better. After ten years of caring for a wheel chair bound parent, I realized I had back and leg pain I had ignored. One day after lifting my elderly mother to assist her in and out of bed, I reached for my shoes and was frozen.
I told one of my colleagues what had happened and she recommended a chiropractor near work. I went to that doctor for several years until she moved away. I went to a few chiropractic doctors near my home, but they only relieved the pain temporarily. I was told the pain would go away if I lost weight and exercised. Spring 2017 I injured my right shoulder caring school supplies to my classes. I was favoring the left side of my body because the right side was in pain. I am not one to take pills so I kept researching what I could do to feel better.
A friend recommended I try structural chiropractic. I started a regime with Dr. Luke in June. Unlike other chiropractors, he did a complete assessment before recommending any chiropractic adjustments. He adjusted me three times a week and recommended daily exercises. This week I was evaluated again and I am happy to say I am pain free and in balance.
This summer I have learned the difference between conventional and structural chiropractic medicine. When I went to conventional chiropractors, the goal was reduction in pain. Unfortunately for me, the pain reduction was temporary. With a structural chiropractor, my structure, which was causing my pain, has been corrected. Co-creating a wellness plan with Dr. Luke made the difference for me. He saw me on a consistent basis and we discussed the shifts my body was experiencing.
Dr. Luke explained:
“The body uses symptoms as warning indicators of a potentially serious condition. A structural shift is just such a condition that may be the cause of your symptoms. Our office focuses on detecting and correcting these shifts so that the body can heal on its own.”
Initially, I got adjustments at a more intense frequency, and now that I’ve made improvements, I am going less frequently. I still plan on maintaining protection care and doing daily exercises to keep healing my body. The exercises are easy to do and I can feel the difference immediately. After my positive experience, I would highly recommend structural chiropractic as a solution to living a pain free life.
