A Joint Chiropractor Just Saved A Man’s Life

Is it because it’s The Joint?

Or is it the method of which the life was saved?

Article Blurb:

Sandy Springs business owner David Webb is lucky he saw a medical professional about his leg pain when he did, since it may have saved his life.

At first, the 48-year-old Johns Creek resident said he thought the pain in his left calf was caused by him working out rigorously numerous times a week. However, when he mentioned it to his chiropractor, Erika Henry, at The Joint in Sandy Springs in December during his regular stop at her office for an adjustment, it turned out to be much more serious.

Henry needed only one look at his calf, which was red and swollen, to diagnose it as a blood clot in his leg. Blood clots can be life-threatening if they break off and travel to other parts of the body, such as the heart or brain.

 When she saw Webb’s calf, she immediately made him cancel his business appointments that day, and he was transported by ambulance to Emory Johns Creek Hospital.

I was really shocked that to see this article as I was trolling for meme content earlier tonight.

Why hadn’t I seen it make the viral go-arounds like everything else.

But then it hit me.

I could hear it now in my head.

“It wasn’t Chiropractic that saved the man’s life….”

and even worse.

“But it was at a Joint.”

I even had to go search on Facebook to make sure I wasn’t wrong.

Kudos to Matthew Loop for sharing it around!

But compare if you will….


And Matt’s an influencer!

Same amount of likes…

But barely anybody wanted to share this story around.


Cause when you really think about ChiropracTIC, isn’t the ART really in the Checking as much as the Correcting?

As much as I love to hear about Chiropractic saving Veterans from Opioids…

( Hey it’s like our Academy Award Movie template right?)

There is so much power in this story going viral within and outside the Chiropractic community too.

Can you hear me now?
