Many people begin seeing a Chiropractor as a last ditch effort to deal with terrible pain. However, there are many reasons to see a Chiropractor preventatively before debilitating pain sets in.  At your initial appointment with us at Chiropractic Family Wellness Center in Scarborough, Maine, we will examine your spinal column and get a sense of your health holisticaly to determine if there are any underlying imbalances causing issues in your overall health and wellness.

Our Chiropractors, Dr. Meg and Dr. Carroll, focus on strengthening the body to prevent future problems, as well as healing damage done from past injuries or illnesses that haven’t been resolved. Starting a treatment plans that focuses on proper spinal alignment and muscle balance can help to improve your health and prevent future injuries. Not only is Chiropractic care considered one of the best treatment methods for bringing pain relief to individuals that suffer from chronic pain, but it is also credited with improving overall health and quality of life.

Improve Posture

A postural imbalance can lead to spinal misalignments, tense muscles, chronic back and neck pain. Having one of our Doctors realign your spine through regular chiropactic adjustments will release muscle tension, decrease pain, and prevent future damage to the neck and back. Your Chiropractor will also teach you exercises to help prevent issues from returning.

Headache Relief

Much of our headache pain comes from misaligned vertebrae. Because the vertebrae of your neck support the weight of your head, and it’s movements, when your neck bones aren’t positioned properly, the muscles around your head tighten, resulting in tension headaches. Our chiropractora can realign the vertebrae in your neck which can relieve your headache pain.

Improve Bone, Muscle and Joint Function

Everything in your body is connected. If one part of the system is out of balance, you can be more prone to injury in other parts. Having a Chiropractor look at the bones, muscles and joints in a holistic manner can help prevent injury.

Treat Chronic Pain

Chiropractic care is an important alternative to pain medication for dealing effectively with chronic pain. We focuse on targeting the root cause of the pain by restoring joint mobility, and improving circulation, muscle strength and tone.

Sleep Better

If you suffer from acute or chronic pain, your sleep is very often affected. Chronic sleep deprivation can lead to a variety of health concerns. A Chiropractor can help realign the body and reduce pain, so you can sleep again.

Preventing Surgery

Chiropractors view surgical intervention as a last resort. People who are hesitant to go under the knife are often able to prevent the need for surgery entirely thanks to getting regular chiropractic care. Depending on your body and the severity of your condition, a chiropractor may be able to fix your issues without having to resort to surgical intervention.

Avoiding Medications

While medications can make some kinds of pain more manageable for the short-term, their long-term affects can be problematic–they carry the risk of dependency and addiction – as well as potentially harmful side effects. Chiropractic medicine is completely non-invasive and incorporates a holistic approach with advanced technologies to get you feeling and living your best without subjecting your body to invasive treatments.

Regular Checkups and Maintenance

Many people “in the know”  go to the chiropractor to make sure their spine is correctly aligned as a means of getting a check-up. Many people make the incorrect assumption that they’ll have to see a chiropractor all the time once they go for the first time, but in fact, many only have to go periodically after the original problem has been addressed. Regular checkups and maintenance will ensure your body stays in alignment and will prevent your problem from becoming a recurring one.

Preventing Future Problems

What starts as an occasional pain can develop into chronic and debilitating condition if left to its own devices. Many people make the mistake of allowing their conditions to get out of hand before they finally seek out the help of a chiropractor, which can result in permanent damage. Visiting a chiropractor will help ensure that your issue stays manageable and temporary.
