This is a question that many of us have thankfully allready answered, but for those who haven't I would like to tell you how I decided my answer. When I started undergrad I, like many others, had no idea what I was going to do with the rest of my life. I have always felt compassion for the human condition and I knew that I wanted to help. I just didn't know in what form that would be. I thought about some of the different professions that help to alleviate human suffering. Would I choose nursing, dentistry, chiropractic, medicine, maybe psychology? I had no idea which one to choose. A mentor of mine at the time helped me with this decision. He asked me to think about what had helped me the most in my personal life. This little piece of advice is what pushed me to the path that I took.
When I was 11 or 12 I began to experience extremely painful headaches. These headaches were so painful that I would have problems concentrating in the classroom and they often ended with me going home early from school. Medicine did not help me overcome this problem, chiropractic did. My mother had heard that chiropractic care can help with headaches and decided to take me into the chiropractor that she had been seeing. After a short course of treatment I noticed fewer and fewer headaches. Within 2 weeks I had gone from having several in a day to having none at all. This is why I decided chiropractic was right for me. Chiropractic treatments have served me well and continue to do so.
Chiropractic is not just about backs. Chiropractic care is about maintaining homeostasis(balance) in the body. Chiropractic care helps to create optimum communication between the tissues of the body and allows the body to heal itself. So make a choice and see how chiropractic care can benefit you.
