Dr. Carraway was recently invited to lecture on the benefits and application of Laser Therapy for the North Carolina Chiropractic Association at their 2018 Fall Convention. As well as educational, it was a very rewarding experience for Dr. Carraway. “I had the last lecture spot of the day on Sunday. I was afraid that as morning wore on, doctors would start to slip out to start their journey home, but everyone stayed to the last second asking questions and sharing. Then afterwards, I chatted in the hallway with a few doctors for another hour. A very sharp and engaging group of doctors and chiropractic assistants. I hope to be invited back soon.”

You’ve probably heard the old myth that “once you go to a chiropractor, you have to go for the rest of your life.” It’s not true. However, we do have many patients who chose to see us once a month or even more frequently. What’s going on?
Stress levels– Those who face physical, chemical, or emotional stress (that’s all of us) often find regular chiropractic adjustments helpful in correcting muscle tightness and the resulting postural changes.
Avoiding a relapse– Because longstanding spinal problems can produce weakened areas that are susceptible to repeated problems, regular care may often help strengthen supporting muscles and ligaments, avoiding a flare-up.
Prevention– Regular chiropractic checkups can often detect smaller problems before they become more serious (and difficult to correct).
Wellness– Being our best starts with an interference-free nervous system.
Gravity– And let’s not forget the relentless effects that gravity places on our body. Regular chiropractic care helps maintain proper spinal curves to accommodate the compression of spinal joints due to gravity.
Remember, how long you choose to benefit from chiropractic care is always up to you. We’re here to serve. How may we help you enjoy life to the fullest?
