The other night I was out to eat with a good friend of mine.

We were at a restaurant where you have the option of playing board games while waiting for your food.

Naturally I grabbed one of my favorite games, which is Guess Who!

If you haven’t played the game you pick a card with a character on it. You then ask the other person question about their character widdling your board down to a couple people then hopefully getting the correct answer.

No matter how many questions you ask during this game there is always going to be some sort of guess at the end.

Now when it comes to your health the last thing you want is someone guessing on what’s going on and what’s going to work. This is one of the reasons we practice the way we do at The Specific Chiropractic Centers Lake Country.

There are plenty of chiropractors out there that lay someone down on a table and press here and there because they “feel” something. According to research bones in the spine are not formed perfectly making it so there is no way to “feel” what is actually going on. This is why we use x-ray in the office, it shows us if everything is moving how it’s supposed to or not!

Now even more importantly is the scanning technology we use. At every single visit we use a tool called Computerized Infrared Thermography. This is what measures the nervous system. You may be asking yourself, “why this is important at all?” The importance of this is that it takes the guessing out of the adjustment. My using this tool we are able to tell exactly when an adjustment is needed and more importantly, when one is NOT needed. If we adjust someone when they do not need an adjustment, we are causing more harm than good. This may be why some people find that they have to keep on going to the chiropractor day after day…..because they are getting adjusted one visit, then getting moved back into misalignment the following visit.

I hope this makes you understand that, just like the game of Guess Who, we do our very best to take all of the guesswork out of your healthcare. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to us!
