Thot for the Day
Here's a great way to share some thought-provoking ideas with your patients and stimulate some great conversations! We've put 50 eye-catching illustrations on brightly-colored paper inserts that slip into the tabletop Plexiglas display unit.
Each insert measures 4½" wide by 5½" tall. Feeling creative? Make your own inserts to announce special events or topics of special interest.
The 50 messages are printed on seven different eye-catching colors:
Place one at the front desk and in each adjusting room.
Pinched nerve rare phenomenon.
More common than a nerve being compressed between two spinal bones is a nerve that is irritated, stretched or chafed by adjacent spinal structures!
No such thing as slipped disc!
Because of the way it attaches to the vertebrae above and below, a disc can’t "slip." It can bulge. It can herniate. It can thin. And it can rupture. But it can’t slip.
British study: chiropractic superior.
A 1990 study of low back pain patients revealed that chiropractic patients got better results, missed less work and the results lasted longer than those receiving medical care.
Spinal curves essential for driving car.
A proper forward curve in your neck allows you to turn from side to side and look over your shoulder. The loss of cervical curve is a common effect of trauma.
Palmer restores patient’s hearing.
In 1895 D. D. Palmer discovered the link between the spine, the nervous system and proper function. His first patient had his hearing restored. Other miracles followed.
Ice a hot topic among chiropractors!
It’s a natural pain reliever. It reduces swelling. It’s inexpensive. And unlike many drugs, won’t cause liver or kidney damage. Ask us how to use ice for best results.
Chiropractic lowers cost of work injuries.
The Ontario Ministry of Health discovered that chiropractic care was more effective and produced higher levels of patient satisfaction than drug and surgical interventions.
Telephone common cause of subluxations.
Cradling the telephone between your head and shoulder is hard on your neck. If you need both hands free when you’re on the phone, install a speakerphone or headset.
Study shows chiropractic safe.
A New Zealand government study concluded that contrary to many critics, chiropractic adjustments, when delivered by chiropractors, are "remarkably safe."
Fever and vomiting sign of health.
True health is when your body works correctly. Coughing, sneezing and other symptoms mean your body is working right. True health is how you function, not how you feel.
Ready for super germs?
Good thing you’re getting chiropractic care. Your immune system, orchestrated by your nervous system, is your best defense against today’s drug-resistant "super germs."
Germ theory just a theory.
Germs don’t cause disease any more than flies cause garbage cans. Germs are a threat only when you create a hospitable environment for them to flourish!
Doctors don’t heal!
There’s never been a doctor who could form scar tissue or mend a broken bone. You’re the doctor. As you recover, give yourself a pat on the back for doing such a great job!
We’re counting on you!
We don’t benefit from the $1 billion spent each month by drug marketers. Instead, we depend upon you telling others who want a natural approach to better health. Thanks!
Blood doctors vs. nerve doctors.
Medical doctors prescribe drugs to change blood chemistry. Chiropractic doctors use adjustments to revive the integrity of the controlling impulses of the nervous system.
Your nervous system controls everything.
A properly working nervous system is a key to good health. Not your blood pressure (controlled by your nervous system) or your pulse (controlled by your nervous system).
Spinal adjustments can help newborns.
Even the most "natural" birth can produce spinal subluxations in newborns. A chiropractic adjustment uses about the same pressure you’d use to test the ripeness of a tomato!
Wellness as a lifestyle.
Once crews finish painting the Golden Gate Bridge at one end, they start over at the other. They don’t wait for rust or other "symptoms." Get well, then see us to help stay well.
Muscle relaxer shortage?
Orchestrated by your nervous system, your body supplies the correct dosage of antibodies, enzymes, endorphins and other compounds precisely when they are needed. If not, why?
What others notice first.
Do you project an image of power, confidence and good health? Or do you slump and appear weak and frail? In many ways your posture affects how others treat you!
Subluxations are serious.
Like the notes that form a musical chord, subluxations involve bones, nerves, muscles, soft tissues and if ignored cause spinal decay. Good thing you’re seeing us!
Today, 290 people in the United States will die from the adverse reaction to prescription medicines. Thanks for wisely choosing safe and natural chiropractic care.
Three major causes reported.
Subluxations can have structural causes from trauma, slips and repetitive motions, chemical causes such as drugs, alcohol and poor nutrition and emotional causes such as fear, anger and stress.
Why we analyze X-rays.
Ever ask a mechanic to repair your car without lifting the hood? Probably not. Pictures of your spine confirm other exam findings and make your chiropractic care more precise.
What would you do?
If your body makes too much stomach acid should you 1.) take drugs to neutralize the acid or 2.) have your spine checked for subluxations affecting nerves to your stomach?
