How Chiropractic Care Gives True Correction, Not Just Temporary Relief

Table of Contents

When we experience pain unexpectedly, what’s the first thing most people do? Many people reach for the closest, most accessible bottle of medication to deal with the unwanted pain. In some cases, it’s a necessary first step, especially if you aren’t aware of what other solutions are out there and you want the pain to be tolerable sooner rather than later.

With principled chiropractors like Dr. Jeff Vitenas at Enlightened Chiropractic, you can get permanent and long-term relief, or true correction, instead of just the temporary fix that medication provides.

Getting Ahead of the Curve

The problem with taking medication or visiting the doctor only when you get sick is that you’re missing out on a big opportunity to actually get well and be healthy in the long term. You can’t experience true correction and long-term relief if you’re only seeking medical attention when you’re in pain or not feeling well.

To enjoy the benefits of the true correction that chiropractic offers, you should seek out a Metairie chiropractor today – rather than the day you “really” need a chiropractor or doctor. The sooner you can get into the practice of visiting a chiropractor for general improvement and regular adjustments, the better off your overall health will be, including the primary reason you would have gone to the chiropractor or doctor in the first place.

Go to the Root of the Problem

Dr. Jeff Vitenas of Enlightened Chiropractic will help you to get to the root of the problem, rather than applying a temporary solution to your situation. Chiropractic is immensely valuable for being able to get to the cause of the pain or discomfort you’re experiencing.

Chiropractic is effective because neurologically-based, principled chiropractors give gentle adjustments with precision and care. Within the spine are nerves that are essential communication lines between the brain and other systems of the body. Over time, these nerves can become pinched or otherwise develop interference through misalignments of the spine. With careful chiropractic adjustments, that interference is reduced or eliminated completely, freeing up the brain to communicate as intended with the rest of the body. This is where true correction takes place.

Consistency of Chiropractic Care

The level of consistency you have with staying under chiropractic care also plays a part in how effective the adjustments are. If your spine has been out of alignment for a while, it has a natural tendency to want to return to the way it’s “used to,” even after it has been realigned into its ideal position. Like teaching yourself a new skill, it takes repetition to teach the spine and surrounding muscles where they should actually be.

Consistency with your chiropractic visits also helps you to maintain a relationship with your chiropractor, who will be able to help you and offer suggestions if a new ailment arises or if you experience an injury or medical diagnosis.
