Raena Morgan: Hello, I’m visiting with Dr. JaDean Anderson who’s a chiropractor. Dr. Anderson could getting a treatment now help prevent later back pain, later back problems? Dr. Anderson: Yes. In lots of cases when a patient first comes in and we get them out of their pain stage and we get them feeling better and get the soft tissues and the joint to heal properly. In the future by keeping up with the regular adjustments, what I call oil changes and in my practice will help prevent the patient from having those severe relapses that brought them into the office initially. So it is very much so preventative type care and that is more than just a back pain or neck pain that you can prevent sometimes if the patient is coming in with headaches, getting a regular adjustments will help keep them from having those severe headaches that knocks them out for a day and not be able to do whatever they need to do throughout the course they did. Raena Morgan: A lot of people though won’t go in. They’ll figure that it’ll just go away, that the pain would just go away, does that going to be exacerbated by time? Dr. Anderson: Usually the longer a person waits with the symptoms that they have, the longer that’s going to take for the adjustments to quickly get them back on the road to recovery. I guess my best example of that is the patient that waits three to four months to come in for a back problem. It’s just going to take more adjustments to get them better as opposed to if they came in within the first several days of having the back pain. Lots of times equate to less adjustments. Raena Morgan: So the main thing is to act on it immediately. Don’t delay, don’t try to heal it yourself. Dr. Anderson: Yes. What I always recommend for the patient is the sooner you get in when you’re starting to have the symptoms or the problems, the better off you’re going to be as opposed to winning and delaying getting the appropriate care. Raena Morgan: Thank you Dr. Anderson.
