I once thought that only people who had a sore back or were injured in some way where their back was affected were the only ones who went to a chiropractor. I changed my mind on that when my new neighbor moved in not long ago. When she asked me for a recommendation for a chiropractor in Concord, I told her how sorry I was that she needed one before I explained that I had never been in the type of accident where I would need one. She was sweet enough to not laugh at my innocence, but she did correct me on my misconceptions about chiropractic care.
She told me that she did not have any illnesses nor was she in any car accidents or the victim of a fall down a flight of steps. When I asked her why she needed a chiropractor then, I didn’t feel like I was overstepping a boundary by asking. I was genuinely curious on why she needed to see a chiropractor if there was nothing wrong with her. She told me she goes precisely because there is nothing wrong, and then she proceeded to explain to me what she meant by that.
She told me that she sees a chiropractor on a pretty regular basis to get adjustments done on her back. She comes from a long line of family members who have had serious back issues, and she was being proactive rather than reactive to it. Rather than wait for a back problem to start, she started seeing a chiropractor before she was even 20 years old. She gets regular adjustments that keep her spine in the right alignment, and she has not had any issues at all since she started going over 20 years ago. Considering that the majority of her family suffers with back pain of some sort, I’d say she is definitely approaching it the right way!
