If you lift weights or participate in athletic activities, you probably should see a chiropractor. If you lift weights or play HARD, you’re kinda foolish if you don’t see a chiropractor. If you do competition training, whether for bodybuilding, powerlifting, Olympic lifting, crossfit training, or any other sport or activity, you’re just plain ole dumb if you don’t go to the chiropractor.
I’ve been under chiropractic care for close to 25 years with my workout partner AND chiropractic friend, Dr. Jeff Kahrs, of Simmons Chiropractic, in Tacoma, WA. He’s put Humpty Dumpty back together again more times than I can count. Yes, I’ll continue to see him until I die, I believe in chiropractic care that much.
But just in case you DON’T want to go to a chiropractor, here’s a great tongue-in-cheek read on 8 reasons not to visit one. My personal favorite was #8. What’s yours? Oh…and enjoy… 🙂
8 Reasons NOT to Visit a Chiropractor
If you’re looking for reasons not to visit a chiropractor, here are eight of them!
1.) You don’t have a spine. If you’re born sans spine, there’s really no need to worry about spinal degeneration, is there?
2.) If you can’t see it, it must be fine. Skin, eyes, hair, teeth… These front-facing body parts are important because other people can see them. If a healthy spine was really that important, it wouldn’t be in the back.
3.) You love taking medication. Taking risks makes life more enjoyable! Dizziness, headaches, dry mouth, constipation, seizures, cancer, death… What’s not to like about side effects?
4.) Your insurance doesn’t pay for it. Money is for important stuff like Netflix, cigarettes, and gambling. If your insurance plan doesn’t cover it, maybe chiropractic care just isn’t necessary?
5.) They don’t prescribe drugs. Why would you want to go to a doctor who doesn’t think you need another prescription? (See #3.)
6.) They think lifestyle “stress” can make you sick. Apparently they’re not aware of bad genes. Everybody knows you only get sick because certain diseases just run in the family.
7.) They expect you to do stuff at home. They want you to make time for rest, exercise, andstretching. On top of that, they think you should change your diet. Evidently they don’t understand how busy you are…
8.) Besides, you’re impervious to mistakes. You eat just fine, and there’s nothing wrong with the way you’re living. Even if your “habits” are making you gain weight and age prematurely, that’s none of the doctor’s business! Their job is to get you out of pain so you can get back to doing the things that brought you there in the first place.
