Many people think that chiropractors are only glorified bone crackers. Nothing can be farther from the truth. As a chiropractor, yes, we do pop a lot of joints. However, there are dozens of other services we can provide. You should remember that a chiropractor is a doctor just like anyone else who graduated from medical school and so we are able and certified to do many things that extend beyond what you may think of when you hear the word chiropractor.
For example, your chiropractor can give you guidance about your dietary habits. If you come to us stating that you want to lose weight, we can give you some ideas of how to eat correctly to accomplish what it is that you want. Although we may not have the word "dietician" on the top of our business cards, we are still fully capable of letting you know what you should try and change when it comes to food.
Another thing that we are always happy to do is create a personalized workout regimen for you. One main cause of pain in the joints, especially the hips, knees, and ankles is extra weight. While there may be other factors such as arthritis or bone spurs, reducing your weight may also help to reduce the pressure that is placed upon your joints. It is true that muscle weighs more than fat, but the thing that really does matter is your personal fat content and the measurements of your body. If you feel like you are at an unhealthy weight or have been told by your doctors that you need to lose weight, we can help you work out a system that will help you achieve the weight that is ideal for your age and height.
There are so many ways that we can help you beyond just cracking a couple of the bones in your back. We are dedicated to your entire body's health and want you to know that. We will do everything we can to help you be the best you and will be with you every step of the way. If you aren't sure if we can help you with something, all you need to do is ask. Come into Wirth today and see how much we can help you.
