Reasons to Continue Regular chiropractic check-ups
and help maintain good health.
Is it necessary to go on seeing a chiropractor for life?
That all depends on your health goals. For many people, regular chiropractic
adjustments are just part of a healthy lifestyle which includes adequate exercise,
good nutrition, and a positive mental attitude. It's a
combination you can't beat. Ask your chiropractor for more
information about how to achieve optimal health. And start
living your life to the fullest.
My problems aren't going to come back, are they?
With proper follow-up chiropractic care your spine will continue to get stronger,
but without it, chances are your old problems (and the pain that comes with them)
will resurface. Ongoing spinal check-ups and treatments by your chiropractic doctor
can not only prevent the return of old problems, they may also stop new problems from developing.
My symptoms are gone, why would I continue seeing the chiropractor?
Symptoms usually appear in the last phase of a health problem and are the first
to disappear when you begin chiropractic care. However, the spinal problem,
called a subluxation, that caused the symptoms does not go away as quickly.
Your chiropractor is trained to treat the cause of your problem, not just the symptoms.
Before you received chiropractic care, your body had to compensate for poor spinal alignment.
Your nervous system, which runs through your spine, could not function properly and this
eventually contributed to your health problems. It's easy for the spine to fall into old
patterns of misalignment and malfunction. That's why, at regular intervals, your chiropractor
will re-evaluate your progress and will suggest options for continuing care, even if your
symptoms are gone.
Will my spine stay healthy without help from a chiropractor?
In time, with chiropractic adjustment, damaged connective tissues heal, and eventually
these damaged areas will learn to hold the spine in a healthy position.
I'm feeling terrific.Why does my chiropractor want to see me again?
Just when you thought youíd be saying goodbye to your chiropractor heís suggesting a
maintenance care program. However, itís important for you to know that your chiropractor
is committed to your long term health and well-being. Maintenance care is important and
it will benefit you, your spine and especially your overall health.
Remember, how you feel does not always reflect how healthy you really are. As a spinal
health expert your chiropractor realizes it is easier to prevent spinal problems than to
correct them. Thatís why a maintenance care program consisting of regularly scheduled
chiropractic spinal examinations is being recommended to you.
