Chiropractor Lebanon Tennessee
At Cumberland Chiropractic and Sports Medicine our job is to get you better faster.
Once the pain is gone and the function is restored our job is to
maintain and improve your musculoskeletal health.
Most of us will visit a dentist to maintain our teeth, have check-ups with our medical doctors to monitor our health, and schedule routine maintenance for our vehicles to help them run smoothly. Our muscles, nerves and joints require the same to STAY healthy. We are your resource to reduce the consequences of daily wear and tear and keep your body moving properly.
Benefits of Regular Chiropractic Care.
A 2007 study found that those who utilized chiropractic care regularly had on average:
60% fewer hospital admissions
62% fewer outpatient surgeries/procedures
85% less in pharmaceutical costs
when compared with their non-chiropractic counterparts.
Feel Great and Have a Safe
Alternative to Fight Pain
The CDC recently released updated guidelines that promotes the use of non-pharmacologic alternatives such as chiropractic for the treatment of chronic pain. For those with injuries or frequent pain chiropractic combats the need and subsequent risk of chronic NSAID use or prescription opioids.
A 2018 study found the likelihood of filling an opioid prescription was 55% lower for chiropractic patients. Of the chiropractic patients who did fill an opioid prescription, their average annual charges for those medications were 74% lower than Non-Recipients who filled an opioid prescription.
We could cite studies here
but it's pretty common knowledge at this point. . .
Sean Atkins, PhD, estimates:
“in excess of 90% of all world-class athletes use chiropractic care to prevent injuries and to increase their performance potential.”
Optimal Care: Once a Month
This frequency of treatment not only maintains your muscle and joint health but also allows for further improvement in your body's range of motion and biomechanics. This reduces your risk of future injury and minimizes joint degeneration brought on by aging and activity.
Minimum recommended maintenance: 6 times a year
Why is two months an important deadline? Because the longer a dysfunction is present the more compensation movement patterns develop. When this happens we, as your chiropractor, fight to overcome both the injury and the brain's new program of improper movement. Move and feel better with regular chiropractic care.
Although regular treatment is recommended, we never want our patients to feel pressured. If you develop and problem and you want us to help get you better, faster...we're here for you! Remember that pain is your body's way of telling you that damage is being done, don't ignore your symptoms.
