Is It Time to See Your Chiropractor?
By Sara Butler
Routine chiropractic adjustments are a part of a proactive health plan. The idea is to address things before they become major issues for you. In a perfect world, people would unfailingly see the chiropractor for routine maintenance; since it’s not a perfect world, how can you tell when it’s time to get in to see your chiropractor? Here are some signs and symptoms that can help let you know when it’s time to get back on the chiropractic wagon!
A Sign of the Times
How can you tell it’s time to see the chiropractor? There are some signs and symptoms you can experience that should be the nudge you need to be seen. If you experience any of the following, get into the chiropractor as soon as you can:
- Poor circulation
- A recent accident
- Chronic pain in the joints or muscles
- Frequent headaches
- You’re diagnosed with arthritis
- Range of motion is limited
- Your shoes wear differently on the bottom
- You believe in the power of proactive healthcare
- Your sleep patterns have become irregular
- An old injury has come back
It’s always a good idea to have a chiropractor on your team. They can offer you preventative care to help you feel your best and keep your body functioning properly. Don’t fall into the trap of simply being reactive and only seeing a chiropractor when something is wrong; by the time you feel the symptoms, the problem may have progressed beyond the point of no return, the point it had to be in order to be addressed properly. When you see your chiropractor on a regular basis, you are addressing potential problems before symptoms even show up – it’s the ultimate way to be proactive with your health.
You can’t speed up your body’s natural healing process, but you can support it with restorative and routine chiropractic care. A healthy spine is part of a healthy lifestyle, after all. Without it, your health can be limited as can your mobility. Regardless of the state of your spine, letting your chiropractor educate you on the ways to properly lift, sit, and stand can help you to support a healthy spine and the muscles that support it. Chiropractic care is natural and drug-free and quite often results are swift. The sooner you start routine chiropractic care, the sooner you will feel and function at your best.
