Wellness Care

Too many people wait until they feel a significant decline in health before they come in to our clinic for evaluation. It is common in our culture to accept declines in health as we age as an inevitability. However, contrary to popular belief, we CAN continue to live a life of optimal health as we get older. Below we'll discuss some of the common beliefs about health, and how you can make chiropractic medicine an important part of your wellness plan.

How Lifestyle Affects Wellness

The decisions and actions we take each day affect the health of our bodies, and can produce health problems that may not show symptoms. Choices such as how we eat, sit, and react to situations emotionally all affect your health For example, if you spend most of your days sitting at a desk, the way in which you hold your arms and head can have a major impact on your shoulders and neck, as well as your entire body.

This is because the nerve clusters that send messages throughout the body originate in the spinal column. When the vertebrae of the spine become misaligned, there are scores of potential impacts this can have on your health. The same principle applies when it comes to how we express emotions. For example, if you are chronically tensing your shoulders due to stress or anxiety, this can have an impact that extends beyond your shoulders and into other regions of the body. Overall, even if you don’t feel sick, you may require a little extra care to prevent your daily activities from impacting your long term health.

Why We Need Wellness Care

The fact that you don't feel sick doesn't necessarily mean your body is functioning properly. If your nervous system is being prevented from sending signals to other organs and systems in the body, things may not be working as well as they should be. A regular wellness care program can work to restore your spinal health and mobility. After receiving care, patients often find that they have more energy and do not get sick as frequently. When the body’s nervous system is functioning properly, it can have a positive impact on your digestion, heart beat, skin tone, blood flow, overall mobility, and more.

Chiropractic Care as Part of a Wellness Plan

Chiropractic care can help keep the integrity of the nervous system intact, and it's an excellent option to incorporate into your personal wellness plan. Regular, gentle adjustments can help ensure that the daily impacts of life do not contribute to the decline of your health. By performing a thorough examination, of your physical state and health history, our Chiropractors can help detect health problems before they develop into serious issues.
