adjusted is like flossing your teeth. Continue to maintain your core
strength and flexibility and if you must reduce your frequency talk to your
doc about it. I would at a minimum get in every other month or once a
quarter. If you have a fall, car accident, injury than I would go get
checked by your DC asap to see if anything has changed. The benefits of
maintaining your adjustments are far more than pain. It has been shown to
boost immunity, endorphin production etc... This translates to being over
all healthier and better wellbeing (ie: less stress, happiness, stable
moods etc...) also allows you to bounce back from an injury or illness
much quicker than someone who doesn't get adjusted. This will cut down on
your medical visits... I hope this helps!
Yes if you stop the progress will slowly be lost, just like if you stopped working out your body will decondition.
The spine is always under stress and regular chiropractic care is requisite if one hopes to enjoy the benefits of optimal spinal health into the future.
I urge you to see health insurance like car insurance: Aflac does not pay for tire rotations, oil changes, etc. They only cover catastrophic events. This is what health insurance is meant for also!
Health insurance will not cover your gym membership, yoga membership, etc.
I urge you to see chiropractic care as a necessity for maintenance of optimal health. Think of it as one of the most important memberships you will ever have!
Thanks for the great question!
the dentist? If you don't take care of your teeth, they will eventually
show symptoms of problems that began a long time before. Same will go with
Chiropractic. Chiropractors keep you balanced so ALL aspects of your body
work as optimally as possible and posture and structure in balance is
imperative for harmony to occur. At least for maintenance once a month or
so is recommended to my patients after getting them to normal pain free
lifestyles. Hope this helped. Got your back! Dr Todd
with "just stopping" is that the chances that pain and dysfunction begin to
creep up again is very likely. This is because of the natural day-to-day
stresses such as work, finances, physical activity and diet can all cause
the nervous system to slow down or have delayed healing and recovery. I
always recommend to my patients they keep up with a maintenance plan after
active care and pain is resolved to maximum medical improvement.
Less irritable due to pain? Did you only value the care because it was a covered insurance benefit?
For some, there is a strong belief that getting regular Chiropractic adjustments (manipulations) of the spine or extremities keeps them highly functioning. The beauty of the health care world we live in today, is that there are many resources from which to draw from and preventative measures to assist in reaching our physical and quality of life goals. You may want to try other alternatives to see how they fit your lifestyle and insurance perimeters and eventually revisit your needs through Chiropractic after you've explored other options.
