Doctor: “Sally, do you think your spine is the same as the next person I’m going to take care of?”
Patient: “Well, no, not at all doctor.”
Doctor: “Do you think we should try to fit you to one table that someone else responds well to, or should we fit the right table to your body to make the best correction?”
Patient: “Well I would prefer you use the right table for my spine!”
I had this conversation with a patient recently and I couldn’t have agreed with her more! Too often in health care, people are confronted with being looked at as a “square peg” with the doctor trying to fit them in a “round hole.”
Are you looking for a different approach to your spine? Are you looking for a different approach for your health? Are you looking to turn off your symptoms? Are you wanting to know the cause? Are you seeking maximize your health potential and experience your highest quality of life? These are all questions you must ask yourself at some point in your health journey.

“Take two ibuprofen every 4-6 hours and apply heat and that should take care of it.” Does this sound familiar at all? Yeah, I thought so.
If you’re like most Americans, you’ve likely been told something along these lines as you went in to see your general physician at some point in your life. Usually followed by you saying to yourself, “thank goodness my doctor knows what to do to fix this,” and, “thankfully it isn’t anything worse.”
This thought is exactly what is keeping you from reaching your true health potential. We have been indoctrinated in the idea that health comes from outside the body, and that it is the doctor’s job to restore your health. This is where doctors, all doctors, have failed their patients. The number one thing preventing you from restoring your health is not taking responsibility for your own health in the first place.
To be a real doctor, of any health discipline, is to teach you how to be responsible for your own welfare within their own discipline. When you become actively engaged in health promoting habits and doing things at home on a daily basis, you will be liberated from the suffocation of relying on a doctor to “give you” your health back.
At Intero Chiropractic, we recognize that your body is intelligent and is always striving for health. We cannot possibly improve on the perfection that is the wisdom that created your body from just two cells. That wisdom is, however, limited by the materials it has to work with (your structure), as your body is constantly being bombarded by chemical, physical and emotional stressors. Our goal is to provide a practical solution where we can reach your health goals together which consists of you doing certain things on a daily basis so that you can be the true champion or your health.
Watch the video below to learn about what we implement in your care so that we can work toward Structural Restoration and an Optimized Nerve Supply.
I want you to picture in your mind, just for a second, the physical framework of someone you’ve seen recently that is anxious or even depressed…
Almost everyone agrees that this person they are picturing is typically hunched very far forward and their posture has shifted significantly from what would be considered normal.
It has been found through research that abnormal posture is associated with poor physical function, impaired pulmonary function, pain and disability and increased mortality.Watch the short video above, to learn how the doctors at Intero Chiropractic take each patient’s care to the next level but visually evaluating your structure each time you come into the office and things you can be looking for in your friends and loved ones to help them be more proactive in their health.
