Chiropractic Tip - Practice Preventive Healthcare Now
By Sandy Schroeder
Some people are very detail and deadline oriented. Others just surge forward doing what is needed as it comes up. When it comes to health care, the people who pay attention, and promptly take action, often do much better. They learn about prevention and actually practice it. Down the road, that can really pay off, keeping the body in the game, and functioning well.
Those people often live longer, enjoying active retirements, traveling, playing with grandkids, and exploring new hobbies. Keeping the body healthy gives them a freedom that not everyone enjoys as the years add up.
If you would like to learn more about preventive health care, a good source can be found at The Joint Chiropractic clinic in your community. The Joint is staffed with licensed chiropractors who help everyone from teens to adults to seniors navigate the world of pain and prevention every day.
When you stop by, a chiropractor will explain why spinal health has so much to do with your overall health. The spine houses the delicate nervous system that controls all of the functions of the body. When the spine functions well, everything else has a better chance of working well too.
This covers a lot of ground, encompassing the back, neck, shoulders, elbows, knees, feet, ankles, legs, and nervous system. Helping you learn how everything works, and keeping everything working well, is really the chiropractic mission.
In your visit, your chiropractor will ask about any current pain, your normal schedule, and your medical history. That’s your opportunity to talk about whatever hurts. It could be a nagging backache, stiff neck, sore wrists, or persistent headaches.
If a spinal adjustment to correct dysfunctions seems beneficial, it will be done on a comfortable table in an open bay area. You may experience far-reaching pain relief. At the same time, you may enjoy other benefits such as new energy, more alertness, better sleep, improved metabolism, or better digestion.
Evaluating your results can lead to an ongoing pattern of regular chiropractic care. At the same time, your chiropractor can advise you on good prevention methods to protect your back, neck, and other joints on a daily basis. You may learn how to lift more carefully, improve your posture, make your workplace work for you, or pick a 30-minute daily health activity, such as walking.
I have watched many people follow this course. They got to know their chiropractor when painful twinges started, and then they continued on, learning the best ways to stay healthy and eliminate future pain.
