Maintenance & Prevention
“Many of us take better care of our automobiles than we do our own bodies, yet the auto has replaceable parts.”
– BJ Palmer.
People often think they have to be ‘really bad’ to see a chiropractor, but actually, the best time to start is before you get to a crisis. It’s just like eating well to prevent obesity, exercising before you get heart disease, seeing the dentist before you get cavities.
Understanding Maintenance and Prevention
Most people have an imbalance (subluxation) in their spine long before they get any noticeable problems, preventative chiropractic care helps many people stay well, improve posture and avoid crisis(1)(2).
If you are in pain, we will assist in improving the balance and structure of your spine and nervous system to resolve the cause of your pain.
However, as it is often your lifestyle that caused the problem in the first place, once out of pain most people choose to have a regular maintenance adjustment (treatment) to keep their ‘spine fit’ and balance the negative effects of the modern lifestyle (sitting, stress etc). We only get one spine, please look after it well!
