One of the most rewarding aspects of practicing chiropractic is being able to help patients uncover conditions that they may not have realized they had. Often, a patient will come through the doors of the Bayview-Finch Chiropractic Clinic and explain to Dr. Gorchynski that they are having specific symptoms. Through the course of regular chiropractic care, the doctor may be able to pinpoint the likely cause of the symptoms if they have a more serious, underlying pathology.
While chiropractic care is not meant to fully diagnose any kind of disease or problem, it can be the doorway for referral to an appropriate professional, if necessary, for a diagnosis to occur. For instance, Dr. Gorchynski and his team regularly work with other health providers, referring patients back and forth when issues or concerns arise. In this way, chiropractic treatment can become a first line of defense and enable a patient to focus on getting healthy.
Over the years, chiropractors around the world have written about being the first professionals to realize something more problematic than neural, muscular or skeletal issues were involved with a patient. Lumps later diagnosed as cancerous, or skin lesions and moles that are precancerous tumors can be detected while doing adjustments. Chiropractors like Dr. Gorchynski, who are able to get to know their patients very well, can tell that something is amiss by the way the patient is talking, walking, moving or responding. Remember that the body, mind and emotions are interconnected; when something is wrong with one part, it inevitably shows up elsewhere as well.
While this doesn’t mean that chiropractic care can necessarily solve all the mysteries of the body, it can absolutely be a lifesaver in certain cases. This shows that the benefit to consistent visits to a trustworthy, professional chiropractor can have far-reaching positive outcomes.
