Do you run to the doctor only when you feel pain? This is the treatment path. Sadly, many people see their health care providers as people to treat symptoms. They only adopt healthier habits after symptoms occur or they are admonished by their doctors. Even then, many on Team Treatment only maintain their healthy ways until the symptoms disappear, then they slide into their old habits.
In my mind this is like only getting your vehicle serviced when the “Check Engine” light is illuminated.
I believe it is preferable to prevent pain than treat it later.

Maintaining health is an ongoing process. Just like it is better to prevent car problems with regular maintenance, it is better to prevent injury rather than to treat it once it happens. It involves preparing for activity, activity itself, good diet, and good preventative treatment.
Would you consider yourself fit if you only complete one workout or enjoy one healthy meal? Certainly not. Most people realize that regular, ongoing exercise and enjoying healthy foods for most meals and snacks are critical to improving and maintaining physical fitness.
Our nervous system is assaulted daily through poor posture, repetitive stress, injury, poor diet, inadequate blood flow, and other stressors. Regularly scheduled chiropractic treatment can counter those daily assaults.
Many Chiropractors, like me, want you to know: Keeping our patients in proper alignment allows their central nervous systems to better address daily stress from environment, illness, injury, and other offenders. Ultimately reduces the probability that something in the body will malfunction or lessens the effect of a malfunction.
It really is like taking your vehicle in for routine maintenance to avoid an unexpected breakdown on the road.
So, before your “Check Body” light illuminates, bring your body in for a tune up.
