Can Chiropractic Care Treat Everything? | Align Wellness Center in Northbrook, Illinois


– Hey, it’s Doctor Gerstin. I wanted to answer a question that people have been asking me a bunch. Can you help everything? Well, with chiropractic
working on the spine and the nervous system, there are a lot of things
that we can have impact on. The spine and the nervous
system tell every tissue, organ, and gland what to do, so if they can tell everything what to do, we can wind up changing and
affecting how everything works in our body. However, there are certain
things that we cannot impact. The most, biggest one is someone who just doesn’t want to change. I had an example of this
happen earlier this week. One of our patients came
in and they have been under chiropractic care for several years and they’ve helped with some things, however, they found other
things started showing up. They started to have radiculopathy
or numbness and tingling in their arms in addition
to the history of migraines. Now, their previous chiropractic
care really helped with the migraines and it took
it from four times a week to four times a month. That’s awesome. But still, could you imagine
having migraines once a week? That’s four times a month
and realizing that there were other symptoms occurring
and adding on tells you that something is not right. Now one of the things I’ve found is that not all chiropractic is the same. Here in our office we look to focus on a postural and biomechanical
approach to the spine and the nervous system that utilizes
proven research tools and outcomes to wind up seeing
if we can create change. Migraines and radicular pain
or numbness and tingling in the upper extremities
are both things that there are clinical control trials
on that the process we use can wind up helping better
than physical therapy, traditional chiropractic,
occupational therapy, or medication. If you think you may be a case
that might fit into one of these categories and you want
to change, you got to want to change, you got to understand
that the warning signs of the additional symptoms or
problems, let’s connect. Once again, I am Dr. Greg Gerstin with Align Wellness.
