Here are 5 reasons maintaining your Chiropractic Care can help you:
Hopefully you read our earlier blog about how Chiropractic Care can sometimes help your back and neck pain more than medication but here are just a few more reasons to maintain your Chiropractic Care:
Continue your healing: Chiropractic care sets the groundwork for complete healing of the soft tissues around your spine. Your level of discomfort and pain are not always directly indicative of your healing progress. Your tissues will continue to heal after your symptoms have diminished. Maintaining your chiropractic care encourages more complete healing that lasts.
Prevent Flare-ups: Continuing ongoing Chiropractic care helps to keep your spine aligned, which also trains the muscles and tissues around the spine to keep it aligned. Improper ergonomics during daily activities can take a toll on your spine. Things like posture, work/office desk setup & normal activities at home or work can all put excess stress on your spine and cause interference to your nervous system. Since your spine can be in misalignment for some time before you feel the discomfort and pain, regular adjustments can help reduce the chance for future issues and make sure you have a consistently back-pain free life.
Feel Good: Regular chiropractic care helps your body stay in a healthy and comfortable state so that you can do what you like to do. With wellness counseling and take home exercises, continued care gives you the tools you need to get your body to its maximum potential. The idea is that when you get your body and back to a healthier state, it is a lot more prepared to deal with life’s stresses. Most patients completing on-going care along with exercise and proper diet report higher energy levels and lower stress levels.
Continue to Learn: Consider your Chiropractor as an on-going source of information that you can look to for help keeping you and your family healthy. Most people don’t often think about posture, ergonomics or back health in their daily lives. Educate yourself and ask questions! Chiropractic care is a partnership between the Doctor and patient. Ensure that you know what you are doing that is potentially causing these issues and know what you can do to help prevent future issues. You should fully understand the reasons your spinal and nervous systems have such an impact on your overall health.
Save Money: Continued Chiropractic maintenance care is not only important but it can save you money. Just like you change the oil, check the tires and maintain your car to avoid larger issues, ongoing chiropractic care can help you avoid larger issues that can cost more to treat. When you have serious back pain, not only can you miss out on work or social opportunities but intensified and increased treatments will cost you more. Ensuring you stay on top of maintenance on your body is a crucial part of wellness.
