Many people go to a chiropractor because they are in pain. Most chiropractors regard the elimination of symptoms as the easiest part of a person's care. If all that the chiropractor does is reduce the pain and stop there, the chances of the condition recurring are much greater. In order to resolve the cause of the problem and prevent a rapid recurrence of symptoms, it is necessary to continue receiving care even though your symptoms are gone.This care allows your body to create new, healthier patterns to keep you thriving!
Most people are under the assumption that if they don't feel any pain that there is nothing wrong with them - that they are healthy. This is especially true in the case of children. People often ask us why they would bring their child in to a chiropractor because he or she has no back or neck pain. Unfortunately, pain is a very poor indicator of health. In fact, pain and other symptoms frequently only appear after a disease or other condition has become advanced.
For example, consider a cavity in your tooth. Does it hurt when it first develops or only after it has become serious? How about heart disease? Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear. When you begin chiropractic care, pain is also the first symptom to disappear, even though much of the underlying condition remains.This first phase of your care will help us not only get you feeling better, but also functioning better!
