“Along with regular adjusting, I faithfully do the exercises recommended to me and was amazed how quickly found relief not only from the pain, but a marked essence of wellbeing, strength and flexibility. Emotional and physical stress was released as well.”

An increasing number of people who want to be and do their best are visiting chiropractors on a regular basis. Wellness chiropractic care takes a proactive not reactive approaching to aging and longevity. True health is based on how well our bodies work, not how we feel.
Don’t Wait for Symptoms
These days, many health problems are the result of lifestyle choices that don’t always have obvious symptoms until the effects are well advanced.
Waiting for the first symptom or until you are in pain is not part of living a true wellness lifestyle. Our society has defined being sick as having obvious symptoms. The truth of the matter is that we can still be unwell or experience impairments without experiencing obvious symptoms.
Here is the thing: spinal dysfunction can still occur silently before back pain ensues. Your body’s response to dysfunction is to avoid the pain by altering its mechanics. The longer dysfunction goes uncorrected, the more difficult it can be to recover or reverse.
Maintaining Your Health
Although everyone wants to feel good, your care should not be based on whether you have pain or other symptoms. As previously stated, spinal dysfunction can occur without obvious symptoms and may be silently affecting your nervous system.
Wellness chiropractic care is important because the integrity of our nervous system informs our entire body functioning. Chiropractic care ensures that every organ and tissue has an uninterrupted nerve supply. It just makes sense to detect small problems before they become serious concerns. Removing interferences from the nervous system activates your body’s self-healing and self-regulating abilities. A nervous system free of impairments can make a huge difference in the function of every system in your body.
Routine wellness checkups should be combined with other wellness endeavors such as nutrition, exercise, and emotional balance in order to achieve optimal health. Your chiropractor can provide insight and counsel on what particular wellness strategies are working for you currently.
True health is optimum physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease. Drinking more water, eating nutritious foods, regular exercise and virtually every other healthy habit produces even bigger dividends when you have a properly working nervous system.
