Pain Is The Just The Tip Of the Iceberg
When the general public thinks of a chiropractor they generally think of neck pain, back pain, numbness and tingling. People have been sold the pain treatment model of chiropractic. While chiropractic adjustments can relieve pain that is not the objective. Correcting spinal misalignments is a natural way to increase the bodies normal healing potential.
Leg pain, Neck Pain, Low Back Pain and Seeing Your Springfield Chiropractor
Even though pain is the most common reason patients seek care, they quickly realize that pain relief is not the only benefit. Recently we had a patient seek care for sciatica. Her sciatica did better rather quickly however what happened next she did not expect. This patient has 7 years of incontinence. She is only 54 years old and she did not step foot in our office expecting this to change. But that is exactly what happened. Her incontinence cleared up following a precise Upper Cervical correction.
Another case recently sought care for back pain. He was only 28 years old and did not know that an upper neck correction would effect his erectile dysfunction problem.
While our Springfield chiropractor is thrilled with these symptomatic changes the objective of the care we deliver in our office is to correct interference to normal nervous system function. Our doctors run neurological tests that determine whether you have an upper neck subluxation that is interfering with your bodies ability to function properly. Once located precise, painless corrections are made to restore normal joint motion thereby allowing the central nervous system to function better.
Unfortunately most of the cases that seek care in our office do so as a last resort. The fact of the matter is that many of them could have avoided years of suffering, years of living less than their full potential had they had the awareness of the benefits they would receive with Upper Cervical Chiropractic care.

Many other conditions can be associated that the patient did not know were associated with the spine.
