"...patients of chiropractic returned to work sooner after an injury..."
– The Utah Study, 1991
Research suggests ligaments and muscles that support your spine take longer to heal than indicated by how you feel. Your body continuing to heal these soft tissues after your symptoms are gone. Continuing with wellness chiropractic care encourages more complete healing. This helps assure a lasting recovery.
Before obvious symptoms provided a warning, your body adapted to the soft tissue damage caused by improper spinal function. Without continued chiropractic care, muscles and connective tissue are predisposed to assume unhealthy patterns. Rehabilitative care continues to retain and strengthen your spine to help avoid a relapse.
Long periods of sitting, financial worries, toxic environments, and many everyday activities can stress your spine. Even the slightest trauma can cause interference to your nervous system and compromise optimum health. Maintenance care can help keep you healthy and avoid small problems from becoming big ones.
Besides keeping you at your best, continuing your care can save money. Just as brushing and flossing your teeth can prevent expensive dental work, regular chiropractic check-ups help avoid the expense of having to correct preventable problems.
Continue your chiropractic care so you can enjoy life to the fullest. Your doctor will recommend a schedule of preventive care visits based on his or her clinical experience. Most patients who enjoy a chiropractic lifestyle report they have more energy and feel better.
