I am a Burlington, Ontario Chiropractor, Certified Posture Expert and Certified Postural Neurologist at Life Chiropractic Centre on Guelph Line.
And today I would like to share a case history with you.
Recently a female patient in her 30’s limped into our office wanting an adjustment.
She had just hurt her back lifting her child out of the car seat and she could barely walk or stand up straight.
I asked her when her last adjustment was and she said about 6 months ago. She said she only goes when she is in pain upon the advice of her other chiropractor and this will be the focus of our discussion today.
In my view, chiropractic care is pretty much a waste of time when you go only when you are in pain.
If this patient had her posture properly assessed, corrected any postural distortions and was getting regular check-ups every 2 to 3 weeks to make sure everything was in good alignment, chances are very good this would have never happened.
Her other chiropractor did not assess her posture and did not take an xray.
This would be like going to the dentist to get a cavity filled and pointing to the tooth that you think was the problem. Chances are you would not go for it.
Next time we are going to review why it is so important to have your posture properly assessed but in the meantime if you have any questions on this topic or any other health concerns you may have or your kids may have, please call me.
Consultations in our office are always free of charge and these include a detailed postural analysis.
