Why People Trust Euclid Chiropractic Clinic

054

For those seeking better health, Wellness Chiropractors provide care for muscles, joints and nerves along with guidance in proper nutrition and routine exercise.

It is sometimes misunderstood how doctors of Chiropractic serve our community.  At Euclid Chiropractic Clinic we choose to educate our patients and perform lectures to clarify how we help people.  Our purpose is to build our integrity as healthcare providers and, therefore, gain their trust.

After interviewing several of our new and long-term patients, here is how they have found trust in Euclid Chiropractic Clinic:

1. Most patients in our office are referred to us by friends, family members, or co-workers whom they trust.

2. Patients have commented on the professionalism of our website, and the educational articles and videos on our blog, Facebook, and Google+ that are updated almost daily.

3. Once in our office, patients enjoy the personal attention that our staff gives them, such as filling paperwork and an understanding of their concerns. After several visits, most patients are greeted on a first name basis by all staff when entering the office.

4. Dr. Weaver and Dr. Ratkovic build trust with each patient by sitting down and finding out their concerns, taking x-rays and returning for an honest opinion of how they can help.

5. During office visits, patients say they enjoy the friendly atmosphere, the convenience of our office being open six days a week, having clear payment options and the availability of the doctors by phone.

As we have built our integrity, our office has grown to serving over 12,000 visits per year for the last 10 years. And we hope to help more people as our trust with you continues to build momentum.

Thank you for the many patients that helped write this post and many more to reinforce its belief.

Euclid Chiropractic Clinic asks, “What do YOU Believe?”

Specific people, not the majority, think outside the box (or would like to).

They don’t listen to mainstream media that says medications are safe, its okay to eat fatty, greasy foods, and exercise is overrated.  This minority of people question the chemicals that medical doctors want to put in their body, drug commercials and cheap drive-through fast food is good for you.

These people believe staying healthy includes exercise, eating healthy to AVOID medication.  These people believe in spending time and money consistently finding ways to improve their health, naturally.

If that is you…Congratulations!  You think like a Wellness Chiropractor.

Chiropractic believes your body has an internal self-healing, self-regulating system called the Innate.  Innate (energy) travels through your nervous system allowing your body to function at its peak potential to avoid sickness and maintain a great state of health.  Chiropractic maintains a healthy nervous system of your whole body so you can stay healthy and restore health, without drugs, when you get sick or injured.

That is it!!!

Each person is at a unique state of health.

Chiropractic Restores Spinal Joint Motion, Restores Overall Health (Video) (1/13)

In the first article, we explained how normal spinal joint motion allows proprioceptic nerves to signal the brain to produce serotonin an keep the body in homeostasis (Understanding Homeostasis)

In the second article, limited spinal joint motion fires nociceptic nerves (pain nerves) to signal the brain to produce stress hormones and the sympathetic response (Wikipedia – Fight or Flight Response).  Short-term this can lead to anxiety, high blood pressure and increased heart rate.  Long-term, nociceptors lead to chronic health condition such as diabetes, high cholesterol, and a lowered immune system.

“The science is clear, lack of motion degenerates joints and causes decreased proprioception and increased nociception” (The Wellness & Prevention Paradigm. Chestnut. 2011. pg 224).

The goal of Chiropractic is to restore normal spinal joint motion and reverse the imbalance of hormones to increase proprioception and decrease nociception.  This will return the body to homeostasis.

There are many joint that make up the spine.  If limited motion is sustained,degenerative/arthritic changes can occur causing a constant stress (sometimes pain) to the spine and constant elevated stress hormones.

Chiropractic philosophy (and the wellness paradigm) believes the body is self-healing, self-regulating and addresses the cause of illness.  Theprevailing Medical belief system says drugs and surgery are required to reduce symptoms of inevitable illness.

Chiropractic checkups allow degenerative changes not to occur and give guidance in exercise and nutrition. This allows You can keep you spine moving and maintain your health.
