It is the fundamental concept of my practice to offer the most convenient and refreshing experience in health care. After all, if getting to your chiropractor causes more pain and stress than the relief you feel after your adjustment, what are you accomplishing? That’s why I created Mint Chiropractic, a mobile health care service with Chiropractic representing the foundation of the 5 Health Essentials ©
Chiropractic care has a tremendous effect on body performance. Getting adjusted is like updating or upgrading our own internal software. Each “crack” strengthens the nerve system improving the connection and quality of information transmitted across the wires.
This is important because the nerve system controls healing in the body. The body relies on a complete communication circuit along the nerve pathways between the brain and other parts of the body. For example, my brain sends a message to move my fingers to type and my finger relays a response back to the brain each time; all while thousands of other processes are coordinated by the brain. Imagine the level of efficiency and multitasking that is required, since a few hundred of those happening every second are keeping you alive.
The chiropractic adjustment focuses on the spine, but may include aligning other joints of the body which have been off balance forcing compensation, often times creating abnormal stress patterns that cause pain, discomfort, and other symptoms. These compensations commonly causes wear and tear micro-injuries, keeping the body in a state of stress and ultimately preventing you from healing properly.
It is certainly possible to experience relief from one adjustment, many of my patients have reported so in the past. However, patients involved in a trauma (eg. car accident, slip & fall) can develop chronic stress patterns and experience flare ups whenever they aggravate their condition. Therefore, it is imperative that patients classified as injured follow a care schedule, based on their exam findings and the Chiropractor’s recommendations.
Having said that, Wellness patients (interested in maintaining health already achieved) are in a different league. I give them the freedom to monitor themselves after their first adjustment and follow up with me no more than 7 days after. Typically after a week, you know if you need another adjustment or not. If not, wait another week and follow up again. At this point, most people want to get adjusted again and choose a subscription package that works best for them. Patients signed up on a monthly subscription receive a built in discount and are eligible for additional wellness services, as related to the 5 Health Essentials.
