20 Things Heard In A Chiropractic Office Part Two (#6-#10)

“I thought I would have to live with headaches forever.”

I can’t tell you how many people we have seen that have had their lives changed due to headaches and migraines. We see people that have had them their entire lives. Migraines that will put them in a dark bathroom floor throwing up to the tune of once or twice PER WEEK! Can you imagine? One of my favorite people in the world just became one of my patients due to this same scenario. Three months later and she hasn’t had one single headache. You could safely say that her quality of life has improved dramatically.

“Last night was the first time I’ve slept through the night in years.”

Man, we hear this one all of the time. When I say that pain can change a person, I mean it. Part of the change is due to the inability to sleep through the night completely. And, if they do sleep through the night, it’s usually not what you would describe as “restful” sleep. In most cases, when people start to feel better, they naturally start to sleep better. When people start to sleep better and feel better, they have an improved quality of life overall.

“I’ve tried everything else. Can you help me?”

Again, it’s unfortunate but, many times we see people that are literally at the end of their ropes. They have had the surgery, all of the testing they can handle, the shots, the physical therapy, the visit to the specialist, and the medication. Maybe they found a little relief but not what they needed and they’re still in a great deal of pain. Its sad and I hate to see it but, that’s often when we finally get them. What do you do at that point? Well, you be a light of hope and encouragement. You be honest with them and you do the very best you can do in a safe and responsible manner. The great news is that, many times, they make a satisfactory recovery to the point that they can begin controlling the pain rather than having the pain control them. That’s always exciting and extremely satisfying!

“That was wasn’t bad at all!”

For some reason, people commonly have a preconceived notion that Chiropractic hurts. We literally see people for the first time that are scared to death; nervous and trembling. I always do my best to calm their nerves by telling them that it shouldn’t hurt any worse than popping their fingers and that we’re here to make them better. Not the other way around. After we’re done, they’re usually surprised to realize that they had built the visit up in their minds to be something that it just isn’t. Going to the chiropractor can feel amazing!

“I had the shots but it didn’t work at all.”

Research came out last year that showed that epidural spinal injections have little to no benefit at all and any effect gained was short-term only. There were absolutely zero long-term benefits in regards to future disability or future surgery. So, it’s no surprise that the shots have little to no effect. It’s a little bit like having a fire in your house and taking the battery out of your smoke alarm. The fire’s still there, right? It’s too risky to recommend for the payoff, of which there basically is none.
