All too often, the cost of an episode of debilitating back pain or crippling migraines is an unplanned, unbudgeted expense. However, at times like this, the thought of relief from your pain far outweighs the actual cost of a chiropractor. Plus, it is wise to seek treatment for pain before it becomes worse, possibly saving you from greater pain and debilitation in the future.

It is understandable, however, that before seeing a chiropractor you will want to know how much their chiropractic services are and what type of financial arrangements you can expect. Call different chiropractic offices and they will generally be glad to explain their pricing to you and any special payment plans they may offer their clients.

Has your child disturbed your sleep in the middle of the night complaining of leg pains? Do you remember having them yourself as a child? These leg pains are commonly referred to as “growing pains,” defined as reoccurring limb pain that will affect 25% to 40% of children ages 2–12 years. Growing pains is a common disorder resulting from stress to the nervous system. The child may feel leg pain, which can range from an achy, throbbing feeling to a sharp pain. Many children also have complaints of spinal pain in addition to leg pain.

There are no known medical causes, only theories. According to one medical study as far back as 1984, limb pain was the common complaint in seven percent of visits to a pediatrician. These leg pains are usually brushed off as normal occurrences attributed to daily physical activity. Parents are told this is normal during the growth process and it will pass. Massaging the legs and the use of analgesics are the only suggestions for treatment. This offers no comfort to the parents or child. Are there other options available to alleviate these leg pains? Yes! Ask your family chiropractor for help!

It is generally understood that people go through life with certain fixed attitudes, or mentalities. It can either be a “wellness” mentality, or an “illness” mentality. People with an illness mentality expect that mainly unpleasant things will happen to them because they believe that the world is basically hostile, unpredictable and out of their control. On the other hand, those with a wellness mentality expect that mainly good things will happen to them because they believe that the world is friendly. Even though some patients may be living with pain, their attitude is such that they can maintain a WELLNESS mentality—a positive expectation that things would be good. There are other patients that look at life with an illness mentality--a certainty that things will generally go from bad to worse for them.

You may be asking the question, “How do I develop, maintain, or expand a wellness mentality?” Three things are necessary:

1. Move toward positive actions and thoughts.
2. Maintain a healthy lifestyle, freeing your body from nerve interference so that is can function properly and create a natural healing process, in other words, achieve chiropractic wellness with the help of your chiropractor..
3. Maintain a clear neurological connection.

You may be considering chiropractic treatment for the first time in your life and wondering just what it will consist of. First of all, you will be given a thorough examination so that a course of chiropractic care can be prescribed that is specifically designed for you. This examination helps the doctor of chiropractic determine the underlying problem that may be causing pain that refuses to go away.

Depending on the nature and extent of your specific problem, a series of recommended treatments should help you feel noticeably better. After one to four weeks of chiropractic treatment, the pain for non-complex musculoskeletal conditions should typically be reduced by 40% and possibly up to 80%. The frequency of visits to the doctor of chiropractic should decrease as your pain and function improve, going from possibly two to three times a week of intense chiropractic therapy, to eventually once a month as maintenance.
