Many people go to a chiropractor because they are in pain. In this first phase of care, the main goal is to reduce your symptoms. Sometimes this will require daily visits, or two to three visits per week for a time.
Most people are under the assumption that if they don't feel any pain that there is nothing wrong with them - that they are healthy. Unfortunately, pain is a very poor indicator of health. In fact, pain and other symptoms frequently only appear after a disease or other condition has become advanced.
For example, consider a cavity in your tooth. Does it hurt when it first develops or only after it has become serious? How about heart disease? Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear. When you begin chiropractic care, pain is also the first symptom to disappear, even though much of the underlying condition remains.
I had serious migraine headaches that hurt all over my head every day for ten years in varying degrees. You name the painkiller and I've tried it. I saw a neurologist, had cat scans, x-rays, MRIs, brain wave test - nothing or no one helped. The morning after my first appointment with Dr. Harer was the first morning in ten years that I didn't wake up with a headache. I wish I had gone for chiropractic care sooner!
