You tell your friends and coworkers, “My neck hurts, my back hurts,” and medical treatments and physical therapy alone do not seem to work. With every step, reach, twist, lift and bend, the pain stops you in your tracks. Or perhaps it comes and goes. Like millions of Americans, you have gone to great lengths and great expense to find relief, any relief. Chiropractic care can help.
How about Chiropractic?
Now, before you jump to conclusions about Chiropractors, Chiropractors are doctors. Officially, their title is Doctor of Chiropractic, which although very impressive sounding, isn’t terribly easy to say. So we refer to them as Chiropractors. Before a Chiropractor lays their hands on your back or neck, they have laid their eyes on hundreds of books. Four years at a university and continuing with post-graduate education (usually three to four years at a chiropractic college). Anatomy, histology, pathology, neurology, biomechanics, x-rays and spinal adjusting techniques are just a handful of topics they’ve studied. Chiropractors must then pass rigorous National Board and State Licensing Board exams.
But what does this mean to you and your pain? It can mean the difference between living with pain (how many times have you heard, “You’ll just have to live with it!”) or a life with little or no pain. Chiropractors specialize in back and neck pain. That’s their primary focus, their main area of expertise. They offer hands-on, effective treatments. Treatments do not include surgery or medications: we feel that the body can heal itself if given the chance. Give your body its chance, before drugs and surgery! You’ll be glad you did.
Here at Zygmont Chiropractic Center, we focus on the health and well being of the entire body, treating not just the typical neck, mid- and low-back pain, headaches, and arm pain or sciatica, but also more obscure challenges like vertigo, TMJ problems, numbness, ilio-tibial band issues, frozen shoulders, and many other over-use syndromes.
