Not at all! In fact, we recommend everyone see a chiropractor for preventative care. It’s like when you visit the dentist every 6 months because those small cavities and plaque build-up can sneak up on you without you even noticing. The same thing happens with your joints due to everyday wear and tear. We also recommend to keep coming in after we get your body moving and grooving again for wellness/maintenance care because every single day your body is being stressed in some way and general maintenance care will help you keep going strong.
Many patients don’t come in until their body has been in pain for quite some time. Pain is your body’s alarm system telling you that something is wrong and needs to be fixed, much like your car’s check engine light. When you have regular maintenance, the overall need for major repairs is generally lower. The same rules apply to your body. At ChiroFamily we believe that regular checks at our office can help keep you running at full speed again without having to play “catch up” once your body is in pain screaming for some attention.
Truth is, preventative/maintenance care is much cheaper and easier to fix than when things get so bad you end up needing time off of work and many more appointments just to get you back to feeling normal again. Not fun. Our goal is to keep your body interference free and to help your body’s ability to adapt to those stressors of everyday life.
When your body loses the ability to adapt to stress, you start to show symptoms of dysfunction. That dysfunction can show up in many different ways, some of the most common being pain, tight muscles or trigger points, stiffness, headaches and much more.
What if I told you that we could help prevent those nerve communication interferences by correcting the subluxations (fancy word for misalignments of the spine) before they caused symptoms? That’s exactly what we do at ChiroFamily. We want you to live your life interference free, and a part of that is with maintenance chiropractic care.
We believe everyone from birth to death can benefit from chiropractic care, and that’s why when you become a patient at ChiroFamily, we treat you as family. We want to see your body run at its highest potential and interference free to ensure you are getting the absolute most out of life!
