At its best, chiropractic care is a partnership.

You have things to do. Patients have things to do.

And while you can’t control what patients do, you can give them suggestions.

Here are 10.

Read the inspirational text below.

When more patients take an active role in their recovery:

  • Patients are more engaged and appreciative
  • The burden to produce results is shared
  • They express greater satisfaction with their care
  • It reduces stress and makes practice more fun

Here’s a patient handout that turns passive-fix-me patients into enthusiastic participants.

Present a copy at their report of findings:

  • Recommend they post it on their refrigerator
  • Tape it to the inside of their medicine cabinet
  • Ask how they might act on these suggestions

It coordinates with the 10 Ways Poster to create an ongoing reminder to do their part.

10 Ways to Help Us to Help You


Knowledge is Power.

The more you understand your problem, the better results you'll get. That's why we offer an information-rich environment and patient education tools. Ask questions and get involved.

Use Our Experience.

The goal of our recommendations is to reduce subluxation patterns in your spine. Each visit builds on the ones before, so missing a visit can hamper your progress.

Exercise and Massage.

Exercise as you are able. Just 20 minutes of brisk walking every other day can help. Massage and stretching are beneficial too. Inactivity tends to prolong recovery time.

Improve Your Nutrition.

Eat more raw fruits and vegetables. Avoid processed foods with high levels of sugar or white flour. Supplement with vitamins and minerals as needed.

Drink Plenty of Water.

Water plays a key role in healthy joints, nerve transmission, waste removal and many bodily functions. Throughout the day, supply your body with enough pure water.

Get Adequate Rest.

Get seven to eight hours of restful sleep each night so your body can make repairs. Lie on your side or back on a firm mattress. Support your neck with a high quality pillow.

Adopt Healthier Habits.

Reduce your consumption of coffee, alcohol and soda. Stop smoking. Get to the proper weight and maintain it. Limit your time with television and other media.

Reduce Emotional Stress.

The root of many health problems is unresolved emotional issues. Forgive and forget. Live in the present by giving up the guilt from the past and the fear of the future.

Attend to Spiritual Matters.

True healing occurs on a spiritual plane. Connect with your higher power through regular prayer, meditation and worship. It's the source of lasting results, even miracles.

Remain Hopeful.

Many health problems arise from years of neglect. It can take just as long, or longer, to make lasting change. Keep a positive attitude and remain optimistic. We are!
