CLA Testimonial: Laura Carithers Speaks About Chiropractic

August 9, 2014

These days, more and more testimonials are revealing the benefits of chiropractic care over drug therapies and other medical treatments. Today, we’d like to share the story of a mother who has passed down her experiences with chiropractic care to her two children.

After suffering from severe pain as a result of cheerleading throughout high school, Laura Carithers sought medical advice from her doctor. Her doctor recommended a pain medication and steroid therapy, including cortisone shots to help with her pain. However, for 18 years, Laura continued to suffer from pain bouts often lasting several days.

Laura finally turned to a chiropractor to seek relief from her pain symptoms. After receiving a couple spinal adjustments to correct her subluxations, Laura was able to wake up in the morning confident that she’d be able to make it through the day without any pain.

After experiencing such notable relief after so many years of suffering, Laura became a strong proponent of chiropractic care and often refers people to a chiropractor if they are in a similar situation. In fact, Laura’s experience was so beneficial to her health that she continued receiving chiropractic adjustments during both of her pregnancies. Unsurprisingly, both of her children have been receiving adjustments since their births as well.

During pregnancy, a woman’s body produces hormones that loosen ligaments for a baby’s head to pass through the pelvic area. This, along with a lowered center of gravity as the stomach grows, can wreak havoc on the spine. Receiving chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy can relieve back pain associated with these changes. Since the birthing process is very stressful, having your infant’s spine adjusted shortly after birth can realign any vertebrae that may have subluxations. This can help with future childhood conditions, such as colic.

The bottom line in chiropractic care is this — if you’re like Laura and suffer from pain due to subluxations in the spine, you’re better off alive without the nerve interference it causes. For Laura, chiropractic care was a life changing choice.
