Thirty one million Americans experience low-back pain at any given time according to the American Chiropractic Association. That is roughly one out of ten people who will experience or have back pain. When does this pain warrant a trip to their local chiropractor? A good rule of thumb to follow is once it begins to affect your ability to perform normal daily activities. Majority of people ignore their pain assuming that it is not serious enough for them to seek chiropractic care.  Here are four tips to follow to know when to visit your chiropractor:

  1. When you have back or neck pain lasting more than three days
  2. When you have difficulty sleeping at night due to headaches, neck and back pain
  3. When you have pain that is radiating (or moving) away from the point of pain
  4. When you have reduced range of motion of the neck or back, especially when its caused by pain and muscle spasms 

Pain is not normal and you shouldn’t ignore it. Be sure to take care of your body and seek chiropractic care when you are experiencing pain. Don’t be hesitant to visit your local chiropractor.

Testimonials

Besides making my neck and back feel better, my legs that normally bounce all over the place at night have been much calmer since doing consistent adjustments with Dr. Pete and adding the occasional massage in before or after an adjustment. I love the atmosphere in the office and the staff are pretty dang amazing too. Debi is great to help with insurance stuff.

I'm a big guy.  My neck and shoulder were killing me.I went to see Dr. Pete.  He fixed me up.I know from experience that most chiropractors don't have the strength to give me a full adjustment.  Dr. Pete got me straightened out right away.  Nice office.

Thanks,

I have known Dr. Pete for several years now. He is a caring and wonderful Chiropractor. When I go for my visits he is warm welcoming and his new front office person Joy is a delight and so helpful. My last series of chiropractic adjustments were amazing. Just with my first adjustment I walked out felling better. If you are thinking about Chiropractic...Think Dr. Pete Chiropractic.
