Mobile Chiropractor Discusses How Apathy Affects Health

“I saw many people who had advanced heart disease and I was so frustrated because I knew if they just knew how to do the right thing, simple lifestyle and diet steps, that the entire trajectory of their life and health would have been different.” - Dr. Mehmet Oz

underlying causesAfter being in solo practice as a chiropractor here in Mobile for over two decades, I have come across many unusual diseases and problems that many of my patients have. That being said, the main problem affecting many of my patients is not neck pain or lower back pain, but something more subtle, more hidden. It’s apathy. Today’s Americans are heavier than ever, and sicker too. They have more surgeries and are on more medicines than ever before. As well as medical treatment can help many of their conditions they believe, many still seem to have issues with depression which leads to weight gain, and if not taken care of in a reasonable amount of time, those issues turn into something more alarming like heart disease, diabetes, and obesity as well. This article is to let you know that as a chiropractor I delve more into other potential concerns that get to the point of why a patient has become apathetic and how chiropractic can help them. Sometimes, it stems from receiving substandard medical care to where a patient puts their trust into their physician but really doesn’t get their problem taken care of in the first place. They may have back or neck or whatever structural condition that may be affecting them, but rarely does the problem ever get remedied by searching for and correcting the cause. Chiropractic does that. When this happens once, twice, or three or four times, believe me, people get frustrated. Who wants to continually get medicine, and more medicine, or a shot of steroids or an epidural? None of this effectively works at going towards correcting the cause of treating the problem. When this happens for so long, you get a patient so sick and tired that they just expect that to be the standard of care. Chiropractors help find the cause. Sometimes it may be due to their patient load being to high. Maybe someone is burnt out treating patients. There are many reasons apathy becomes a part of our lives. We hope you chose Discover Chiropractic in your near future so we can help you fight apathy and help you get back on the road to recovery.
