There are different approaches to chiropractic care. Some chiropractic offices focus specifically on injury-care (also known as acute care), some focus exclusively on pain relief, and others focus on certain parts of the spine such as the upper cervical vertebrae. At impACT Chiropractic, we specialize in “family-focused chiropractic wellness care”. Our goal is to help improve the health and wellness of your family to a level that provides the healthiest life possible, without limits and with abundant vitality (a little something we call health with amplitude).
Commit to ACT
Simply deciding to ACT can be the toughest part of making the transition to a new way of viewing health and living your healthiest life. You might have heard that chiropractic folks are into some strange stuff. Well, we admit it! We ask our patients to commit to doing some pretty radical and crazy things such as getting the right amount of sleep, drinking enough water to stay well-hydrated, and switching out some unhealthy food choices for some healthier ones. We even get wild enough to talk to our patients about ways to reduce the stress in their lives and getting a little more physical activity into their day.
Of course, change is a process and all of these great things don’t happen on day one.
Trust the Process
We ask our patients to trust the process in more ways than one. Healing is a process. Restoring your health is a process. Lifestyle changes are a process. And every one of these processes take time. Today’s fast-paced way of life conditions us to expect immediate results. However, our bodies just don’t work that way. There might be times during your treatment where you can’t tell on the outside what is happening on the inside. Trust the process.
Chiropractic care is, at its very core, concerned with correcting and maintaining proper nervous system function—keeping the lines of communication between the brain and body open and clear. Misalignments in the spine or other joints (called subluxations) interfere with that brain-body communication. Imagine a water hose with a kink in it—a chiropractic adjustment unkinks the hose. However, the longer we’ve lived with these misalignments, the more our bodies have tried to adapt to them. It takes time for the body to re-adapt to the correct alignment. This is why it is so important to trust the process!
We offer a number of opportunities to learn about different aspects of health. We hold educational workshops in our office, hold movie screenings, share webinars, host special events, and maintain a free lending library for our patients with books and films that touch on all different aspects of health. Join us for these events as often as you can. Better yet, bring a few friends along and a couple of neighbors too. We are committed to helping our community learn and transition from the current “sick care system” where multiple prescriptions are given to cover up symptoms rather than fixing the cause of the illness—to one of “wellness care” where the root cause of illness is the target instead of covering up symptoms.
If you’ve met one of our patients (our raving fans), you’ve likely heard some great things about us. While we aren’t really superheroes, we are super passionate about providing the best possible chiropractic care for every member of your family. If there is ever something we can do to better meet your needs, let us know! We want everyone who chooses us to be a part of our Raving Fans Club.
