Our "Patient of the Week" review is from Doug Edwards. Douglas presented to our clinic about 6 years ago with upper back pain, low back pain, thumb and hand pain. His condition had developed gradually over the years from long hours of sitting and computer use. His symptoms were interfering with his golf game and had flared up when he was on vacation sailing, so he decided it was time to try something different, because the care he was receiving was not helping.
When we checked Douglas we found subluxations in the neck, upper back and low back. Vertebral subluxations are the term chiropractors use to describe a misalignment of a vertebrae that is causing nerve interference, loss of motion, muscle spasm, pain and dysfunction. We also found misalignment's in the hand and thumb.
We put Douglas on a chiropractic treatment program to address all these issues. The goal was to take him as close as possible to being pain free with normal function. Well, we were able to make big changes and Douglas has been coming in for maintenance care ever since. Sure, sometimes he has flair-ups and he even has new issues that pop-up from time to time, but his regular chiropractic regimen of 2 times per month along with his home exercises and healthy lifestyle keep him in excellent health most of the time.
Douglas is not alone. Most of the patients we treat at Executive Express Chiropractic are coming for ongoing maintenance care. Do they need to come forever? Well...if they want to receive the benefits of chiropractic care they have to see a chiropractor. If they want those benefits forever then YES!
Just like if you want the benefits of exercise or eating right you have to do it ongoing..it's a lifestyle choice...just like chiropractic!
