Everyone wants to live a healthy lifestyle. But, it can be challenging for some people to achieve without the help of an experienced chiropractor. At New Life Chiropractic Clinic, we are committed to providing our patients with the healthiest life possible by redefining their health through natural healthcare and wellness services.
What is chiropractic care, and how does it work?
Chiropractic care is a drug-free, painless alternative to traditional medicine. The word chiropractic comes from the Greek words cheir meaning hand, and praktike, meaning treatment or therapy.
Traditional chiropractors use manual adjustments of spinal joints and extremities and other therapeutic methods to diagnose and treat mechanical disorders such as joint dysfunction, muscle spasm, inflammation, or infection.
Although some patients experience immediate relief after only one visit with chiropractors, it provides long-term solutions for optimum health by uncovering underlying causes that may be contributing to your ailments without drugs or surgery.
Chiropractors can help with everything from apparent neck and back pain to more complex conditions such as postural problems, headaches, or sleeping difficulties.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it may be time for a visit:
- Aching in your joints
- Pain that radiates down one arm
- Numbness in one side of head or face; tingling hands/feet/toes (possible nerve damage)
- Difficulty walking stairs without stopping due to leg cramps or knee pain
- Anxiety about not doing what you want because of physical limitations such as lifting objects, driving long distances, sitting at a desk job all day, etc.
Chiropractors have been successfully treating patients for over 100 years and have plenty of experience helping people just like you. They have an intensive knowledge of the human body and what it takes to make you feel better. Visit New Life Chiropractic Clinic for a consultation today!

How to find the best chiropractor for you?
Searching for the right chiropractor for you might seem like a daunting task. How do you know which ones are safe? Which ones will be the right fit for your needs?
First, it is essential to become educated about chiropractors and what they do before deciding on one. An excellent place to start is by reviewing their website or office hours online. You can check out this website, neulifechiro.com, to give you a thorough overview of how chiropractic care works.
Be sure that they offer time slots at convenient times such as evenings and weekends if possible so you can schedule appointments with them when needed without having to take off work through an employer's flexible scheduling program.
Once a suitable location has been found online, call the phone number listed on the site and ask some basic questions, including:
- What services does this chiropractor provide?
- Are there any additional costs for those services?
- Do you accept insurance or Medicare?
- What is the cancellation policy for appointments?
Once an appointment has been set, it's time to review their license information. This will ensure that they are up-to-date with all necessary paperwork needed to practice as a chiropractor.
Finally, find out about what kind of payment methods they take before visiting them so you can be prepared when it comes time to fill out forms for treatment plans and other fees associated with visits.
You can also schedule a consultation with Dr. Rob Neuenschwander of Neu Life Chiropractic in Tomball, TX. He will gladly answer all your questions regarding the benefits and treatment options of chiropractic care.
Benefits of regular chiropractic adjustments
There are many benefits associated with chiropractic care, including pain relief, improved mobility, and increased mental clarity. Having regular chiropractic adjustments by a qualified chiropractor can;
- Improve posture, which leads to improved breathing patterns and less neck strain.
Chiropractic care is known to help with neck pain as it can reduce nerve irritation. Chiropractic care can also help with headaches and migraines because of the release in tension and pressure on the neck.
Reduce pain in the back and joints due to arthritis or injury
If you suffer from back and joint pain due to arthritis or injury, there is a relief. A well-versed chiropractor will find out your problem and provide a safe, natural solution for you. They can show you where all of your pain triggers are located on an x-ray or MRI machine so that they may be able to help relieve it if possible.
A thorough exam can also identify any spinal abnormalities which could lead to severe problems down the road, including chronic neck pain or disk degeneration in the lower back. This might sound scary, but there's no need to worry; every case is different, and many people live healthy lives after such treatment.
Chiropractic care offers more than just relief from symptoms like stiffness, joint clicking, low back pain, and neck mobility. It also provides pain relief and restoration of function, as well as prevention.
Help relieve tension headaches fast
For most people who have tension headaches, the headaches are caused by stress-related muscle tension or tightness in your neck and upper back. Your chiropractor will perform a specific type of spinal adjustment called "manipulation" to keep the joints in your spine and neck free from these restrictions.
As a result, you will experience an increased range of motion and less tension which may help alleviate pain caused by headaches.
This is an effective treatment option for those who suffer from recurrent daily headache pain. This can be useful when other medications are not working or have serious side effects that make them difficult to take regularly.
Ease digestive disorders including constipation & diarrhea
Digestive disorders like constipation and diarrhea can happen to anyone at any time. Several factors may contribute to these conditions:
- Stress or anxiety
- A change in routine, such as eating more processed foods than usual or skipping meals altogether
- Dehydration due to not drinking enough fluids
- Intestinal issues like food sensitivities, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), celiac disease, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, etc.
With a gentle chiropractic adjustment, we can send a surge of healing, life-giving energy through the nervous system and restructure imbalances in a posture to relieve the pressure on the digestive organs.
When nerves are well cared for, they can transmit necessary information back and forth from your brain with more ease which may help reduce symptoms like bloating or abdominal pain.
Improve sports performance from the increased flexibility of muscles that support the spine during exercise
If you've been injured, or you are suffering from chronic back pain, want to increase muscle flexibility and support for your spine, then you may want to visit with a chiropractor.
Chiropractic treatment can help reduce the pain you are feeling and strengthen your spine. Over time, this will allow for better posture and improved muscle performance during exercise, leading to greater sports performance.
A chiropractor can treat many conditions, including scoliosis or curvature in the spine that a spinal lesion and vertebral misalignment may cause. They can either reduce this distortion within the affected area or decompress it for less pressure on nerves if there is not enough space to exit the spine without being stretched too far.
They will often recommend lifestyle changes such as exercise and better nutrition so that you can reach your goal faster than anyone else would be able to do alone.
How long do I need to see a chiropractor before I start feeling better?
It's difficult to know how long you'll need treatment. A general rule of thumb is that your body will start responding well around five visits or so, but this can vary depending on the individual. Once again, patients need to become educated about their condition to make informed decisions and get better faster.
Varying on the severity of your pain, you may only need a few adjustments to get relief. Some people will experience pain relief after just one visit, while others might need more time with our chiropractor. In either case, we want to make sure patients have enough information to make educated decisions about their treatment plan.

Chiropractic care is known to provide relief from several common conditions, including back and neck pain and headaches. A chiropractor will use gentle touch to align your spine to improve the flow of energy throughout your body.
This also helps prevent further problems like nerve impingement because you're removing any interference that may be causing issues with circulation. And if these symptoms persist, patients need to seek out treatment sooner rather than later so they can avoid more serious health issues down the line.
