Have You Stopped Seeing Your Chiropractor?
By Sara Butler
Are you enjoying the benefits of a pain-free life so much that you have stopped seeing your chiropractor? Perhaps your chiropractor helped you to resolve the issues that caused you to see him originally, and you feel so good that you think, “I don’t need to go back until something hurts.” If you think this way, then you are not alone. Many people don’t understand the importance of chiropractic maintenance. If you’re one of them, then here’s why you may want to reconsider.
What Your Chiropractor Does
Your chiropractor does more than just pop your joints back into alignment. The activities you take part in every day -- even something as innocent as sitting -- can create joint dysfunctions and joint restrictions that your chiropractor hunts down in order to correct.
But they are doing more than just making sure your joints are free from joint restriction and dysfunction and that you’re not dealing with pain every day. They are also helping to support a healthy and fully functional central nervous system.
Your Central Nervous System
Your central nervous system controls every single function in your body. It is comprised of your brain and spinal cord. If your joints, especially your spinal joints, are not aligned properly, then it does not allow your central nervous to function as it should and communicate clearly with the rest of your body. This results in a body that is not functioning optimally, or able to fully heal itself when even small injuries occur. After a while, that results in the pain that probably brought you to your chiropractor’s office in the first place.
Why Chiropractic Maintenance is Important
You need to think of your chiropractic visits just as you would a visit to the dentist. You see your dentist regularly in order to care for your teeth and prevent cavities, so why wouldn’t you see your chiropractor regularly to care for your central nervous system? Keeping your spine free from dysfunction and joint restriction is a sure way to make sure your body is functioning at its best and that you can handle anything life will be throwing your way.
