Only eleven percent of the population has ever visited a chiropractor, which leave many others who have never been to a chiropractor before. Therefore, I am frequently asked, “what chiropractic is all about and how it can help.” Here are a few of my most recent and most popular questions:
Q: I’ve heard that chiropractic can help with back pain and headaches, but what other conditions can it help?
A: Chiropractic helps to improve your body’s “innate intelligence,” which is your body’s ability to heal itself. By removing nervous system interference with precise chiropractic adjustments to the spine, pressure off of the delicate nerves enables the body to function more optimally, which equates to less pain, stiffness, better range of motion and most importantly, optimum health! Conditions that respond very well to chiropractic include carpal tunnel, tinnitis, vertigo, shoulder pain, sports injuries, leg pain, allergy and sinus problems just to name a few. Chiropractic is also very effective and safe for children of all ages, including newborns with colic, reflux or ear infections, and pregnant women too! Geriatric patients can also benefit greatly from care.
Q: What makes Panchur Chiropractic Wellness Centre unique from other chiropractic offices?
A: Panchur Chiropractic Wellness Centre has been providing care to Wadsworth, Medina Country and the surrounding communities for over 7 years. We are a family wellness centre, where we treat everyone from Pediatrics to Geriatrics! We pride ourselves on personalized care and treat every patient that walks in our door the way we would want to be treated — The Golden Rule, if you will. We take our time with each of our patients; getting to know them personally and learning how we can better help.
In addition to individualized personal chiropractic care, Panchur Chiropractic is also proud to offer a variety of holistic services including Therapeutic Massage, Cold laser therapy, Nutritional support, and Digitalized Foot evaluations for customized orthotics. I am also very excited to offer Acupuncture and Gua Sha therapy. I am one of only over 100 Chiropractors in the state of Ohio licensed to perform acupuncture treatments for my patients. This certainly makes our office unique!
Q: I’m curious about Acupuncture and how it works. Can you tell me about it? Do the needles hurt?
A: Acupuncture is based on the Chinese premise of balancing the “Chi” or energy in our bodies for the treatment of various ailments and for general wellness and well-being. Needles are placed along Meridians (energy channels) in various locations, depending upon the patient’s symptoms, in order to balance the energy to enable their body to approach homeostatis—which means increased healing and decreased pain! The needles are very thin and do not hurt. Most patients fi nd the experience very relaxing. For those who are weary of needles, a needlefree acupuncture technique is available that is just as effectively. I see a variety of conditions in my office, including shoulder and arm pain, lower back pain, Neuropathies, Arthritis, Cancer patients (to help with adverse effects of chemotherapy or radiation), ADD/ADHD, Fertility, and Allergies just to name a few.
Q: I’m not in any pain, so how can your office help me?
A: Great question! The best thing about chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage are that they provide wellness support for your body to help keep you feeling good! You don’t have to be in pain to benefit from the healing potential our treatments have to offer. One of the best times to seek treatment is by being pro-active and preventative, meaning don’t wait until you’re in pain. The feeling of pain is the last thing to present itself. Therefore, by the time you’re in pain the problem has usually been going on for some time and could potentially take some work to correct. I always love when I meet patients who come in for wellness–they get the “Big Idea” with their health!
We look forward to sharing the healing benefits of care with you!!
