Many people go to a chiropractor because they are in pain. In this first phase of care, the main goal is to reduce your symptoms. Sometimes this will require daily visits, or two to three visits per week for a time.
Most people are under the assumption that if they don't feel any pain that there is nothing wrong with them - that they are healthy. Unfortunately, pain is a very poor indicator of health. In fact, pain and other symptoms frequently only appear after a disease or other condition has become advanced.
For example, consider a cavity in your tooth. Does it hurt when it first develops or only after it has become serious? How about heart disease? Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear. When you begin chiropractic care, pain is also the first symptom to disappear, even though much of the underlying condition remains.

Helping Familys Grow
I am currently 38 years old and over a year and a half ago I felt closer to 60 than 40. Today I feel closer to 30 than 40 and I owe that feeling to Dr. Scoma. I have been going to Dr. Scoma for the past two years and in that time I can honestly say that my health and my life have changed dramatically for the better. Not only does he listen to me and discusses how I'm feeling, he also has a unique ability to pinpoint the origin of my problem and then work to correct it. I had been to many Chiropractors, but I trust him with my health and value his opinion. I had been so pleased that I began to bring my young daughter. She is now four and is as healthy as can be! Regular adjustments have improved her health and sleep habits so much it's markedly better than other kids her age. My husband continues to be amazed! We all have benefited immensely from regular Chiropractic Care and I always recommend Dr. Scoma to anyone who is experiencing pain or just want to improve their life. - Julie and Mia W. Atlanta, GA
