Why should you bother with another chiropractor for your chronic pain?

You have one life, don’t give up yet, try again.

Why should you see a chiropractor if you’ve already seen one and seen every other provider known to man? Don’t give up, there’s reason to be hopeful. Much like Chinese restaurants in Maine, one that suits your needs is often very hard to find, the best one is out there, you just have to find them. Don’t stop seeking help for your chronic pain, just try something different.

You can’t see what you aren’t looking for.

Some chiropractors do what other doctors do. They focus on the pain. They focus on the symptom, which is the chronic pain. They try to apply electrical tape to the oil light in your car, masking the symptom but not addressing the cause adequately or at all. 

Many pain medications that also mask the chronic pain, also have undesirable side effects like erectile dysfunction, decreased libido, and a host of others. Is chronic pain depressing you to the point of taking anti-depressants? Those medications often lead to weight gain, adding another stressor to many people’s lives. Addressing the cause of the pain may lead to being less reliant on drugs that cause unwanted side effects and risks.

Some chiropractors focus only on the cause. They focus only on what has caused the pain and the cause of obstruction or interference in healing. Identifying one or more causes of interference, correcting that interference often leads to the results that have eluded you for all these months or years. Doing the same thing over and over again (focusing on pain) and expecting different results is lunacy. Trying something different, doesn’t mean trying a different pain killer. Fundamentally, it’s doing the same thing. 

There are side effects with chiropractic that may surprise you too. You should know about how the rest of your body may be affected by chiropractic. Not everyone is prepared for the change.
