You might be thinking “Great, some Chiropractor telling me I need to use them!” Rest assured the #1 concern we have here at SHOMA Integrative medicine is your health. Whether you use us or another qualified medical professional isn’t the issue. Our concern is to raise the level of health in our fine city of Long Beach, CA.
Before we dig into the details, allow me to share with you a story of a client who visited me years ago (you just might relate).
“I thought all chiropractors did was crack a few necks, weren’t real doctors, and really didn’t do much”.
I wish I could tell you that this was the first time I heard this type of messaging however it was not. If that is how you feel it’s ok. Discover how chiropractic care might benefit you. What you will discover is that at SOHMA Integrative Medicine we are more than just Chiropractic care, however for today let’s dig into a few reasons you might want to consider starting a chiropractic regime.
You Have Regular Back and Neck Pain and Want to Avoid Taking Pills to Handle the Pain
We aren’t against modern medicine however many of our patients come to us being tired of filling prescriptions. They want a different way of life. They are searching for a way that they aren’t dependent on pills to take away their pain.
Many of our patients come to us after having tried multiple doctors or even other chiropractors to handle their neck and back pain.
Oddly enough it’s not just car accidents (which is what many think) can cause neck and back pain. Here at our office we have seen folks develop back and neck pain from:
- Sleeping wrong on a consistent basis (one of our clients routinely falls asleep sitting straight up in a chair and it led to neck pain)
- Weekend warriors who push their bodies to the limit and don’t have the same mobility that they used to when they were 20 years younger
- Lifting heavy objects on a routine basis with the incorrect form either at work or at home
If you are experiencing neck or back pain on a regular basis and your current treatment isn’t working as you desired it might be worth looking into alternative treatment options.
Stress is Causing You Issues and Your Current Treatment Methods are Not Reducing Your Stress Levels
Many of us have had the vision that we just want to disappear to an island where stress doesn’t exist. It’s a pretty sweet dream! Before you sell all of your belongings and disappear to an island we would invite you to discover how to manage your stress.
How does chiropractic care help with stress?
Part of chiropractic care is management of pain throughout the body. Pain in the body causes stress. When you can move without less pain or even no pain you will discover how your level of stress goes down. The body doesn’t want to manage consistent pain. One of the best methods is to discover how to reduce the pain so the body can focus on other items.
You Are An Athlete Who Wants to Improve Your Performance
We have yet to meet an athlete at our Long Beach, CA location who didn’t want to improve their performance. We have runners, triathletes, cyclists, gymnasts, football, soccer, track and more who come to our location.
One of the reasons they come to us is they are seeking an edge in performance. One particular triathlete had shoulder pain when he was down in his drops on the bike. This is a problem for racing and training.
What he discovered after a few sessions:
- We were able to help him increase his mobility that reduced the pain
- The bike was not quite fit to his specific body type and some adjustments to the bike also help reduce his pain
- We provided him with additional exercises to help the muscles that could help support his body during racing and training
One of the benefits of our staff and chiropractors is they are individuals who have a wide variety of interests. Many are dedicated athletes who continue to train for events and they bring that passion to helping our patients.
