Do you have any secrets? Something that maybe only a few people know? It doesn’t matter what it is, but I’m sure there’s something that you know, your spouse, maybe a friend or two, and a few other people, but you don’t run around telling others about. Why not? Because you’re ashamed, or just don’t think about it? This happened to me recently, when a new patient came into our office.
For at least seven months this child had a problem, yet no one even thought to tell the mom or dad about chiropractic care. Why not? Is it something no one thought of?Was someone ashamed? Did people not care? Did they not want to admit that medicine wouldn’t work? Who knows what the reason, but regardless of what it was, it took over a half a year for someone to tell this particular mother about chiropractic care and how it may benefit her son. Yet after just two adjustments, great progress was seen in this little one-year old boy.
The little guy has torticollis and both the Pediatrician and Orthopedist thought there was the potential for Cerebral Palsy. That’s a significant diagnosis. I just know that after two visits of correcting subluxations, he improved quite a bit and it’s exciting enough to wonder how much more he can change and benefit from chiropractic care.It’s just a shame that no one told his parents, his Pediatrician, or his Orthopedist about Chiropractic care and adjustments. I know from experience that adjusting spinal problems in a child, whether the baby is one day old, 7 months old, or 7 years old….that adjustments can make a significant difference.
So, are you keeping chiropractic care a secret? What would happen to your friend, neighbor, family member, co-worker, or whoever if you told them you were getting adjusted? If they ask why, don’t tell them it’s just because you’re in pain or it makes you feel better. If you don’t understand it’s more than that, then shame on me (or shame on some other chiropractor) for not explaining it better.
Chiropractic care is not about pain relief, it’s about better performance, function, and health. It’s as simple as that. Please share that secret with someone else, and you just may change that person’s life.
