I am haunted by the idea of going to hospitals and I’d do anything just to avoid them. But recently, I was forced to have a check-up because of my persistent and bothersome back pain. Normally, I’d place back pain patches or rub cooling oil to soothe the discomfort and the soreness; however, this time around, a specialist’s advice and medication was needed, since none of them were enough to relieve the pain.
At first, I was anxious to step inside the clinic knowing that my situation was not just the typical back strain. But thankfully, I was able to set an appointment with a friendly chiropractor in Dandenong, and so I was relaxed the whole time.
Chiropractor are health professionals that address problems of the nervous and musculoskeletal system. They’re not your usual therapists, but they’re also not doctors. And in general, they provide prevention methods and treatments to back pain, headaches, disc bulging, and compressed spinal discs.
The first thing on our agenda was the comprehensive physical examination, completely followed by a medical history evaluation. What I appreciated was that my specialist immediately gave me a personalized treatment plan, and to my surprise, a surgery was not necessary in the healing process. This is the beauty of going to a chiropractor - there is a big chance for you to recover without needles, medicines, and radiation.
I was given a natural and drugless approach to align my spine once again. With a set of exercises that focused on range and motion and nutritional diet, there was a significant decrease of muscle spasms, stiffness, and pain in the buttocks. Thanks to chiropractic adjustments and decompression, the sensitive nerves were targeted.
After a few sessions with my chiropractor, I realized that our tendency to overlook the simple muscle pains can cause the worsening of possible serious ailments. I made the right choice by seeking professional help and alternative treatments such as this to alleviate my health condition.
