My Chiropractic Experience By: Rachel Mans
I am a grade 12 student from St. John’s College and I came to Family Care Chiropractic for my co-op placement. I have been here for the past 5 months and I have learned a lot from my time here. It has been a great experience and I appreciate the opportunity Dr. Sandy has given me here. I have been able to experience firsthand the positive impact of Chiropractic care as I have been a patient here long before I started my co-op. When I initially came in for a scan of my spine I did not have any problems with my spinal alignment, or so I thought. I had chronic headaches and migraines which I never associated with my spine alignment. It turns out that my spine had a misalignment which caused certain nerves and blood vessels to be pinched off causing my headaches and migraines. After a few adjustments my symptoms started to go away. And after a few months of Chiropractic care my headaches were pretty much gone. As a co-op student I got to watch and track the progress of many patients and I got to see them get better every time they came in. One patient walked in with a cane and was struggling to keep his balance and after a few weeks of adjustments he walked in without using his cane. It is really amazing to see the benefits and improvement in patients who come in regularly. I highly recommend Chiropractic care for everyone. Even if you do not have any neck or back problems, because almost all health issues are linked to your spine. Your nervous system is your central system which controls every cell and every organ in your body. When those nerves are pinched off due to a spinal misalignment it affects your health and your body does not function and flow the way it is suppose to.
