Maintenance is Key to Healthy Living, but it's your choice
Once your body has fully healed you will be released to your own reconnaissance. There are those that have chronic conditions that require regular adjustments for the rest of their life if they want to continue to function well enough to do normal daily activites. There are those that have no symptoms but want regular adjustments to maintain function of the spine and nervous system to allow optimum performance at sports and recreational activities and it keeps them with a feeling of well being and higher energy. And there are those that don't want regular care of the spine and will wait for a problem to occur. Your spine health is up to you and once we have your condtion as stable as it can be you decide how you want to care for your health. I am frequently asked my opinion on how to care for the spine and my reply is: We only have one spine and it cannot be replaced like an organ can, once it is worn out you have to live with it. You can take medication, you can have surgery, but you cannot replace it. And stress to the spine is like driving a car with the tires out of alignment, the car runs good but eventually the tires wear out and you get new ones, with the spine you can't get a new one, so it makes sense and is less expensive to keep the spine in line and functioning on a regular basis with routine chiropractic checkups and adjustments. Just like continuing an exercise program and eating well in order to sustain the benefits of exercise and proper diet, it is necessary to continue chiropractic care to ensure the health of your musculoskeletal system. When you make routine chiropractic care a part of your lifestyle, your spine functions better, your nervous system flows freely, your overall health is better and fewer if any medications are needed when you are healthy. Just ask most anyone who doesn't take care of their spine how many meds they have in their medicine cabinet? Check out the World Health Organizations list of healthiest countires, the USA is 38th in the world. Thirty seven other countries are healthier than we are. Why, because most americans rely on meds to keep them going so they can continue to have the very foods that cause illness and disease and they avoid exercise instead of living a healthy lifestyle and taking care of their spine. Health should be worth the effort, but how you take care of your health is up to you.
