The Virtual Appointment
Yes, I said a virtual appointment with a chiropractor.
Chiropractors are known as doctors that adjust the pain away but I assure you, we can do MUCH more.
Adjustments are helpful to reduce pain quickly but that’s not the only solution. There are many things you can do at home for long-term pain relief.
No, it doesn’t feel the same, but passive treatments (where the doctor does all the work) only last temporarily. They don’t fix you or your pain. It’s only a matter of minutes, days, weeks, or months before it comes back.
What’s Causing Your Pain
Think about it this way: it takes many years of having poor muscle coordination, nerve impingements, muscle weakness, imbalances, or injuries before you even start to FEEL pain. That means something you’ve been doing (and you probably don’t even realize) is leading you to feel this way. Only YOU can fix this, helping your body to function at it’s best.
Healthy muscles don’t feel tight or sore or even have any pain associated with them.
Pressing on these muscles will only help relieve that pain for some time, but the muscle needs to be stronger in order to do it’s job properly. Without that strength, you body now has to rely on other muscles to do the job. After years of this muscle being weak, it’ll start to tear, cause pain and inflammation, be more prone to injury, and cause all the muscles around it to work a LOT harder. That means they will tire out and start becoming weak from overuse, painful, and inflamed as well!
As a chiropractor, I am trained to see these instabilities, muscle weaknesses, and areas that need some TLC. We can do all of that virtually. I can see you through a secure video call and we can develop a plan to address your health goals.
Sure, that one muscle might seem like it’s causing all your pain and that’s perhaps why that particular area of the body is also painful, but why did that happen in the first place?
Is is because when you sit at your work desk, it’s slightly more comfortable to lean to the right? Spending hours in your car with one foot moving, and the other resting, causing your hips to sit unevenly. Could that be causing your back spasms? Could it be that you’ve had recurrent ankle sprains on your left foot now you now experience right hip pain?
Your body functions as a WHOLE, not individual parts. That means the problem is functional and involves your entire body, not just one muscle.
There are so many factors that are in play, but I assure you, that one muscle is not the reason you have pain. Something is causing your body to compensate somehow and cause overuse or underuse of muscles, causing further imbalances. That is leading to weakness in muscles, maybe a few tight muscles, and microtears and pain and inflammation.
Skilled doctors are trained to see this; I am trained to see this. We spend years in school – I spent almost 9, not to mention my almost 6 years of clinical experience on top of that.
Plus, doing a thorough history and asking you a lot of questions on your intake form means we can get to what’s causing your problem much much faster.
And you can do this virtually. And you don’t even need to leave the house.
We can work together to find things that you can do at home to relieve some tension or pain at home, so you aren’t leaving your home if you don’t feel safe or spending time commuting. Think of how much time you can save!
There are SO many things that can be done.
This is for you only if you are actually ready to get better.
Because once we start, you’ll realize that your health is in YOUR hands and YOU have the power to change it.
It’s okay if you don’t – not everybody is ready to change. If you are ready to start feeling better and take your health back into your hands and FIX the problem instead of throwing a band-aid on, hoping that it’ll just go away by itself or that someone else will fix you (because they can’t), then I’m here to help you.
If you would rather be in pain forever and not make a single change to your lifestyle, then I’m not the right fit for you, and that’s okay too.
But, if you’re ready to feel better, book a FREE 15 minute virtual Discovery Call (Ontario residents ONLY) with me and let’s chat. No strings attached and no obligation to you.
For the entire month of November, I will throw in a FREE posture screening during this free Discovery Call so you can learn about your body (Ontario residents ONLY).
