How often have you over-treated yourself? Taken medicine you maybe didn’t need, or exceeded the recommended dose of Tylenol or Advil?
Probably often, yes. We all have. That mentality can carry over to our physical health as well. Chiropractic care can sometimes be a suitable alternative to surgery. Here is a story of one such case.
Meet Trevor. He was diagnosed with scoliosis as a child and was told he needed surgery to treat his pain. His mom sought the opinion of a chiropractor who was able to treat the pain with a series of skilled adjustments.
“When I was a child I suffered from extreme upper back pain. I was told by my doctor I had scoliosis. He recommended surgery but my mom was hesitant to go that route without a second opinion.
She sought out a chiropractor who instead recommended weekly adjustments. For three months, I saw my chiropractor every week and my condition gradually improved. Soon we reduced the sessions to once every two weeks and eventually to once a month.
It has been over 15 years since then and with the help of my chiropractor, I have been able to treat my scoliosis and manage my back pain without spinal surgery. I would not be able to live the life I live today without chiropractic. It keeps me moving.”
