Achy Joints, Sugar, & Chiropractic Care in Dubuque

Achy Joints, Sugar, & Chiropractic Care in Dubuque

Have you ever felt achy and not known why? In order to break down the sugar barrier, we need to be far more educated on why it happens and where to go from there. We all love a little sugar, but in a controlled amount! If your body is not used to consuming lots of sugar, then even a small amount can upset your body!

How We Can Help in Dubuque

Recently, a patient reached out to our practice to ask us about why she was having heavy aches after a vacation. After a long discussion, we realized that while on her trip, she consumed much more sugar than what her body was used to having. In her daily life, was only used to rare desserts and a few glasses of wine.

After our conversation and narrowing down the source of her achiness to the sugar she had consumed while on vacation, she was finally able to get back to life as she knew it. Although she didn’t go crazy with her sugar intake, consuming more than usual did noticeable damage.

You never know - your answer could be very similar to hers!

Getting to the Root of the Problem

Unfortunately, people are more likely to ask themselves how they can get rid of their symptoms rather than establish why they are feeling poorly in the first place.

In today’s society, health care costs are on the rise, reactions to drugs are increasing, and unhealthy people are everywhere. It is all too easy to forget to identify the root of the issues we face. Our expert chiropractors are committed to helping you understand why you feel the way you feel and educating you on how to better treat the symptoms that come about.

At Family First Chiropractic Wellness Center, we focus on finding the root of your issues and going from there. If we were to only treat your symptoms, the issue would most likely return. To learn more, call our practice!
