If we were to imagine the life of a reasonably healthy person, we’d see that, on the surface, they aren’t much different than us.  They wake up and eat breakfast, go to work or school, come home, spend time with family and friends, have hobbies and interests, and go to bed.   Most of us have lives just like this.  However, the biggest difference between a pretty healthy person and anyone else is how they feel.   Someone who is reasonably healthy person will have little to no headaches. They will rarely have body, joint, or back pain.  They will seldom experience a cold or flu that lasts a long time.  And they will almost never experience chronic illness.   Sound like anyone you know?  If you do, consider yourself lucky.    It is rare for many of us to be as healthy as that.   Compared to even just 50 years ago, we, as a population, experience more aches and pains, get sick more often, and deal with chronic illnesses far more than ever before.  At the turn of the 20th century, 100 years ago, most people had to worry about dying from sanitation-related illnesses like pneumonia, and other bacterial infections.  But today, most people are dying from chronic illness while also suffering from neck pains, back pains, headaches, and migraines.  What’s more, it’s considered normal to experience headaches, body, joint, or back pain.  It is considered normal to catch a few colds per year.  And it is commonplace for people to develop chronic illnesses.

Believe it or not, back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work.  The majority of people will experience headaches, neck pain, migraines, shoulder pain, and mid-back pain in the next year.  Almost half of all Americans have at least one chronic disease.  Not only does all this cost you in lost wages, increased insurance premiums, and health care fees, but it also is one of the most significant sources of unhappiness.   How happy can you be if you’re in pain most of the time?  How happy can you be if you live in fear of a looming headache or migraine, or, worse, a chronic illness? It’s hard to be happy if you aren’t healthy.  And it’s tough to be healthy if you don’t know what to do or how to begin.  However, your life doesn’t have to be that way.   This is where Orange County Upper Cervical Chiropractic can help.

Step-by-step, bit-by-bit, inch-by-inch, and with the right assistance, you can re-route your body to move towards a path of health.  We, at OC Upper Cervical, believe that this approach is superior to playing catch-up with each problem that comes up.  We don’t believe that health should be centered around finding a “magic” pill, potion, powder, supplement, or procedure.  Instead, we believe that moving towards health is about diligently finding what makes your body healthy and inching in that direction at a good pace.

Dr. Gershfeld’s unique approach to health includes specifically working with you, at your own pace, to get you living the life you deserve – free of aches, pains, headaches, migraines, sickness, and tiredness.

At Orange County Upper Cervical Chiropractic, we offer a complimentary initial consultation to see if our approach is right for you.
