What is a wellness life style? From a chiropractic perspective this is your body functioning at 100%. It is homeostasis. Not only the lack of disease, but when your organs, immune system and other systems are operating as they should. Since your nervous system controls all other systems, chiropractors focus on making sure the nervous system does not have nerve interference through missaligned vertebrae, which house and protect the spinal cord, brain stem and delicate nerves that exit the spine.
Regular chiropractic tune ups can help preven “subluxations” of the spine that may weaken the immune system, decrease the function of organs and lead to not only pain and degenerative changes of the spine, but may be the cause of many diseases that we commonly treat with drugs and surgery. Drugs all have side effects. No surgery is truly routine or without risks. Chiropractic has recently been shown to be an effective treatment for back pain as reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association April 2013. While pain reduction is a primary focus of many chiropractors and is a primary reason people seek chiropractic care, we chiropractors know as do our wellness patient’s that regular spinal “TUNE UPS” can help reduce not only pain, but stres, and aid in your bodies homeostasis and may in many cases relieve symptoms which have not responded to drugs and surgery without the side effects and risks.
A chiropractic wellness program is typically 1 tune up a month for most patient’s. We offer a discount for patient’s who wish to participate in a wellness life style that includes regular chiropractic checkups.
