As a chiropractor in Greenville, NC, this is easily the most common question that I am asked by patients. Many chiropractic patients go to a chiropractor as a last resort instead of their first option to relieve back pain. They have been to numerous medical doctors for countless drugs, surgical consults, and physical therapy. Reducing their low back pain, neck pain, headaches or other symptoms temporarily at best and none have fixed the problem.
They are often baffled as to why no one knows why they are experiencing back pain, neck pain, headaches etc. When a structurally focused chiropractor shows them what the current shape of their spine looks like and compares it to normal they are often shocked. “How did it get this bad?” “How did this happen?” “What causes this?” are all questions that I hear as a chiropractor almost every day.
Recognizing and treating symptoms is the training medical doctors receive. It’s very rare for a medical doctor and sometimes even a chiropractor who is pain based, to understand the importance of identifying abnormal shapes in the spine. For a structurally focused chiropractor, we know what happens when your spine is not in its ideal shape and we alone know how to correct it. If you are experiencing any symptoms like headaches, neck pain, low back pain, sciatica, migraines. Maybe you have been diagnosed with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, disc herniation, disc bulge, disc prolapse, scoliosis, spinal arthritis, degeneration joint disease etc. then you NEED to be examined by a structurally focused chiropractor who takes full spine x-rays.
These conditions are often caused by a myriad of common injuries that most do not realize can have a significant impact on their spine and health.
