Many of us know what it’s like to have a sudden injury that prompts us to seek chiropractic help. When you’re in pain every day, or not sleeping through the night, you know that you need help.
However, as soon as we start feeling better, there’s a temptation to slack off on our recommended care. We all have busy lives. If we’re not in crisis any more, is that care a priority?
It should be. Here’s why.
5 Reasons for Regular Chiropractic Care
Ensuring a Full Recovery: Just because you’re no longer in constant pain doesn’t mean you’re fully recovered. Finishing with your course of treatment will ensure that you are back to your best possible health, not just out of immediate pain.
Minimizing or Preventing Future Pain: Once your course of treatment is over, your chiropractor will recommend a schedule for maintenance care. This is typically one visit a month, depending on your individual needs. This regular monthly visit will allow your chiropractor to prevent potential problems before they cause you discomfort. At these visits, your chiropractor will be able to treat vertebral subluxations and address potential sources of pain at their source.
Regular chiropractic care prevents or alleviates other conditions. Vertebral subluxations affect nervous system functioning. When your chiropractor treats them, you may see improvement in other aspects of your health as well. A common example is decreased frequency and intensity of headaches.
Regular chiropractic care decreases dependence on medications. With less discomfort, you’ll have fewer reasons to reach for that bottle of over-the-counter pills….with all their potential side effects.
Regular chiropractic care boosts productivity. Whether you’re on your feet working all day or sitting at a desk, regular chiropractic care alleviates the stresses and strains you place on your body. You’ll be able to focus more easily without the distraction of nagging discomfort. You may need fewer sick days, and you’ll work more efficiently.
