Continue your progress: Relief care lays the foundation for complete healing of the soft tissues surrounding your spine. Research suggests ligaments and muscles that support your spine take longer to heal than indicated by how you feel. Your body continues to heal these soft tissues after your symptoms are gone. Continuing with wellness chiropractic care encourages more complete healing. This helps assure a lasting recovery.
Prevent a relapse: On-going chiropractic care can help avoid the ups and downs of acute flare-ups. Before obvious symptoms provided a warning, your body adapted to the soft tissue damage caused by improper spinal function. Without continued chiropractic care, muscles and connective tissue are predisposed to assume unhealthy patterns. Rehabilitative care continues to retrain and strengthen your spine to help avoid a relapse.
Avoid future problems: Continued chiropractic care can slow, stop, or help reverse the degenerative effects of neglected spinal trauma. Long periods of sitting, financial worries, toxic environments, and many everyday activities can stress your spine. Even the slightest trauma can cause interference to your nervous system and compromise optimum health. Maintenance care can help keep you healthy and avoid small problems from becoming big ones.
Save money: A chiropractic lifestyle and other healthy habits help save time and money. Besides keeping you at your best, continuing your care can save money. Just as brushing and flossing your teeth can prevent expensive dental work, regular chiropractic check-ups help avoid the expense of having to correct preventable problems.
Feel good: Wellness care can help keep you healthy so you can enjoy every aspect of your life. Continue your chiropractic care so you can enjoy life to the fullest. Your doctor will recommend a schedule of preventive care visits based on his or her clinical experience. Most patients who enjoy a chiropractic lifestyle report they have more energy and feel better.
