As a chiropractor, much of my time is spent getting to know my clients. Although they come to see me with a physical complaint, it's important that I understand the underlying cause of the problem they are worried about. Are they stressed, tired, deskbound? Have they been participating in a sport or eaten something that their bodies simply don't tolerate?
Once I have this background, I can design their chiropractic treatment with these lifestyle considerations in mind. I often found I was giving more and more advice on ways to address some of these underlying causes.
