My First Month of Chiropractic - Isabel O.

My First Month of Chiropractic - Isabel O.

What first brought me to chiropractic care was not severe lower back pain, migraines, or a pinched sciatic nerve. For the past month I had the opportunity to serve as a Chiropractic assistant at the Active Family Chiropractic & Wellness Centre in Mississauga, but I have been benefiting from regular Chiropractic adjustments as well. Through this experience, this is what I have observed:

Chiropractic is more than just getting your back “cracked”; it is more about an all-encompassing healthy lifestyle. From the first consultation, and throughout every adjustment, the doctors have your best health in mind. Healthy living is paramount to chiropractic care. To lead a healthy lifestyle whilst getting regular adjustments is synonymous to eating a healthy diet while regularly going to the gym. A healthy way of life is key to chiropractic care. Chiropractic adjustments are about becoming the best version of yourself.

Personally, after being introduced to chiropractic for over a month now I have an overall motivation to live healthily, especially in keeping an active lifestyle. A lot of people are not necessarily incapable of living a healthy lifestyle, but simply lack motivation. Perhaps chiropractic care can kickstart that motivation for you.

Through witnessing the patients that frequent our clinic, I have learned that chiropractic care is for everyone. A motto of the clinic is “Healthy Spine, Healthy Life.” Spinal care is not something many people are concerned about outside of chiropractic care. Though, as a vital part of the body, spinal health should be prioritised with greater importance. Many
people turn to chiropractors seeking pain relief. However, chiropractic care is not just for those looking to correct years’ worth of pain. It is for anyone looking to either prevent or maintain a healthy spine. From infants to seniors, office workers to intense athletes, chiropractic care is for everyone.

I did not think chiropractic care was for me since I was not experiencing any severe pain. Sure, I had lower back and neck pain every now and then, but it was not life-inhibiting. I did not think I necessarily needed to see a chiropractor. During one of my first examinations with a Chiropractor here, Dr. AJ, he said, “I’m glad we’re catching this now,” and “We’re
starting at a good time.” That stuck with me because what if I had started chiropractic treatment later in my life, what would my spine look like then? For some people, they are having to correct problems that have been building up over a long period of time. However, you can prevent this if you get your spine checked sooner rather than later.

Lastly, Chiropractic care is so much more than a quick fix. Like all good things, correcting the spine takes time. It is all about maintaining a healthy spine now so that you can in turn live a healthy life, now and in the future. Not only is it an investment for yourself, but when you are at your healthiest the people in your life benefit as well. Chiropractic care is worth the investment into your health, your future, and your family.

What has struck a chord in me since I have been here is seeing the lives changed through regular adjustments, one of these lives being my own. Here at Active Family Chiropractic, we hope that as you read this you would make the decision to let your life be changed by chiropractic care as well.
