"Some patients only need to be seen a handful of times. Others, with more chronic injuries, may need to be seen for 4-8 weeks, to fully get to the point where their issue has been corrected and won’t reoccur."
-Dr. Louis Granirer
Chiropractic Adjustment in Manhattan, New York City
It's funny how we view certain things in life as bad, but they lead us to something good. I have often looked back at certain situations in my life, and have become quite grateful for situations that appeared "bad" at the time but ended up being the perfect thing for me. It has made me realize that most things in life actually happen FOR us and not TO us.
When I was in college, I had a workout injury to my shoulder. The pain was horrible and kept me from participating in the activities that I love. I searched for answers to help my shoulder heal, but after many trips to medical doctors and cortisone shots I was left with the same pain and unable to proceed with my workouts.
I remember feeling sorry for myself and thinking it would never get better. A friend of mine recommended that I see his chiropractor, and I followed his advice. In just about a month after I started treatment with this chiropractor, I was back at the gym and pain-free. If it wasn't for that shoulder injury, who knows if I would have had exposure to chiropractic care, and if I would be writing this today.
As a chiropractic patient myself, I have been getting adjustments regularly since chiropractic school, and I believe it enables my body to perform better, stay out of pain and function better. There are so many benefits to regular chiropractic care that I would like to share some of these benefits and perhaps dispel some myths as well.
