A typical experience at the Colorado Springs Spine & Injury Clinic – Chiropractor in Colorado Springs CO*
I’ve suffered from joint pain, back pain, and headaches all my life. I just treated each pain that I encountered as a separate case and event. It never occurred to me that a chiropractor could relieve all that what ailed me. It was partly because I didn’t know much about chiropractors and partly because I always considered my pain to be mild or typical for the average person.
The reality is that any type of chronic pain is something that cannot be treated by pills alone. Temporary relief is only covering up the underlying problem—that’s what I’ve come to learn after visiting the Colorado Springs Spine & Injury Clinic.
Just last month, while I was going through another episode of head, neck, and back pain, a friend of mine asked me if I’d ever seen a chiropractor. I said that I did try massages, which worked similar to taking pain killers, but I didn’t see it as worth doing regularly. It was then my friend explained to me how chiropractic treatment differed from all other forms of pain relief.
I was on board with trying a chiropractor, anything that can provide me relief for more than a few days. Colorado Springs Spine & Injury Clinic was the best decision I had made in my adult life since marrying my wife. Any misinformed expectations I may have had going in went right out the window as soon as we started the consultation.
The chiropractor wasn’t like your average doctor at a clinic. Very simple and easy to understand information on what I would expect for my first session. Plus, something I didn’t know about chiropractic work, I was given more information about how to improve my overall health to avoid encountering future pain and inflammation.
Next, we moved onto the examination, both my medical history and my current health status. We took a look at my posture, spinal alignment, and muscle tightness. This was familiar to me, as I had similar exams with experienced massage therapists. My chiropractor was able to immediately find some blockages and points of stress, which he then used mild pressure and fluid motions to loosen and open up pathways.
Because I had multiple points of pain, my treatment was done both sitting up and laying down. There are various techniques that a chiropractor can utilize to provide relief. There are as many as 100 different techniques in the work of chiropractic, but most doctors will specialized in a few at a time. Each one has their advantages and applications according to the person and the problem.
This experience has literally changed my life, I can confidently say my pain in my back has disappeared completely after one session. My neck experiences only a fraction of the soreness that I had to put up with every day, and, subsequently, my headaches have been reduced four-fold.
You need to visit CSSIchiro.com and simply trust the process. The world of good health goes way beyond traditional medicine. Chiropractic teaches how interconnected our lifestyles, environment, and our actions are, which requires a multi-faceted approach. Chiropractors incorporate diet, exercise, stress levels, and habits into recovery plans. They know that each one of these factors can contribute to our ailments.
When I left the chiropractor’s office, it was as if I had a new lease on life. My head was lighter, my strides stronger, and the smile on my face was permanent. This is all coming from a person who believes that their pain was only mild. I cannot imagine what this treatment would feel like for someone who suffered from arthritis, migraines, or a recent bone fracture.
Some problems can be solved with just one visit to a chiropractor, while others may take a few treatments over the course of a month or two. The first treatment may not be as drastic for some, but you will definitely notice an improvement after each visit.
This is something I would recommend to everyone, no matter their level of pain or discomfort. It’s a great form of self-care that I think everyone deserves to have.*
