Why is it that we seem to believe something more if we see it with our own two eyes? We are skeptical of anything that is different from what we know whether it’s food from another culture, religious beliefs, political stances, or even miracle cures. What is it that makes us feel like seeing is believing? That one must witness the event firsthand in order to fully believe?
Chiropractic care tends to be one of those things in life that for most of us is vastly different from what we know. Almost 80% of us know what a chiropractor is however, for whatever reason, still choose to not seek the care of one. So, what is that 80% doing instead? Many times it’s simply nothing at all. Choosing to live in pain, however mild, rather than believing in something that is different from what we’ve always known. Or, depending on the product and the amount of money a company invests in advertising, we believe what we continually see on a screen. Should it really be that “he who has the most money wins?” Or should it be more of a grassroots thing, more of word of mouth advertising?
A great place to begin with a grassroots approach to chiropractors is through our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/damronchiropracticandwellness/. We have countless testimonials from people who went from skeptics to true believers in chiropractic care. One message we hear time and again is that our patients wish that they had sought the care of a chiropractor first instead of last. Many times they did not see any correlation between the pain they were having and the nerves that are running down their spine, so why would they even consider seeing a chiropractor? The reality is that there is always a root cause to the pain. The other reality is that all too often that cause resides within the spine, as each vertebrae contains nerves that are connected to certain functions of the body.
If we truly understand how intricately connected the body is, we could resolve our pain much sooner. We would also be able to maintain better health and wellness with the care of a chiropractor, and less time invested in the management of disease care.
