Its a common myth that once you go to the chiropractor that you always have to go. This is not true. Chiropractic helps with the alignment of the spine. We usually see people for the first time when they are in pain, so we have been stereotyped with we only help with pain. When we can help your body with so much more. My question should be if you were in pain before why would you ever want to go back to that. That statement alone is the reason people keep going back to the chiropractor.
How do get people out of pain and keep them out of pain well we adjust the maligned spine back to its proper alignment. How does your spine get out of alignment? Well have you ever fallen down ever in your whole life, have you ever been stressed out emotionally, have you even eaten something that did not agree with you? These things are the three factors that cause subluxations: emotional, physical, and chemical stressors. So again I ask who doesn't have at least one of those in our lives every single day? Ok so with those every day function and life itself those alignments move again into an improper position sometimes causing pain sometimes not. YES you can have a subluxation without pain.
OK so you need an analogy to put this into our everyday lifes. OK my favorite one I like to use brushing your teeth on a regular basis. We eat and drink something everyday right? And we brush our teeth everyday correct? Now here is the ultimate question do we have to brush our teeth everyday? Ok now you just gave this blogg a stink eye didn't you. Yes, Yes you did and I know you did, you know how I know cause I sure would have. So the honest answer to that is no but do you feel better afterwards yes, and it helps prevent heart disease and gingivitis.
So you also go to your dentist 2 times a year to get your teeth cleaned ever since that little tiny white tooth peaked through your gums correct. So its a preventative measure correct? And your teeth feel amazing afterwards correct? The same thing with Chiropractic. Did you know the average age a person sees a chiropractor for the first time is in their mid 30s by that time there is damage done to the spine that can never be corrected. We all should be getting out spine aligned because even though we may not be able to see the plaque building up on our spine we will defiantly feel it when we are older and than for the most part there is nothing we can do about it than.
So the next time you are thinking about scheduling your dentist appointment make sure to also stop by and check out your local chiropractors office. They can hook you up with a really awesome deal for a maintenance schedule that is affordable even if your insurance does not cover chiropractic care. We want to see you healthy not in pain.
Please leave your comments below I would love you hear your feed back on your chiropractic care and what you think of my bloggs. Have a great day and remember a Healthy Spine is a Happy Spine.
