Initially chiropractic was seen as quackery. I'm not going to sugar coat it, but a lot of people also thought the internet was a craze and that the idea of a computer in every household was an insane idea..now everyone has one in their hand. (MIND BLOWN!)
More and more people are searching out holistic options void of medication and surgery for their health. I think more people are also searching out second opinions and realizing that the medical field isn't always right. Now I'm not saying that you shouldn't believe anything your doctor says, but I am saying that it's okay to get more then one opinion. People are also realizing that Chiropractic isn't just about "back cracking." Most Chiropractors have sufficient education in holistic health like; nutrition, mental practice, exercise and functional movement, pediatrics, and in athletics.
What if you had a doctor that was constantly giving you advice on how to live a healthy, prosperous life so that you could prevent getting ill? So that you wouldn't have to enter the medical system through sickness and disease? In reality chiropractic is a lot younger then medicine. Most people don't think to address their health until there is something to fix. That is the bottom line and basis for medicine, figure out how to address a symptom when it gets here. Chiropractic, not all chiropractors, tries to address the prevention of illness, to create the best potential for your body that you can express. I don't think the universe, or God, made you imperfect. Its what we do in our environment to ourselves that suppresses that potential.
When you've thought, "I've exhausted all my options," or "I want to be healthy," or "I want to live the best and longest life possible so that I can be there for XYZ," immediately think Chiropractic and holistic health care. It's what you want. Break the mold, do what's best for you.
