I was getting adjusted yesterday morning with one of my favorite chiropractors. Yes I get adjusted every week just like I recommend my patients. He had a great saying on a white board:
The medical model to back pain is like firefighters. Once your house is burning they tear down walls, kick in doors and put out the fire. Leaving your house a disaster and wreck, but you still have a frame of a house that needs repaired. Chiropractors are like carpenters. We make your house stronger and reinforce to prevent a fire or disaster from happening.
I’m sure you see where this analogy is going with the human body. As a chiropractor I typically see patients when they hurt. After a big snow storm and shoveling, leaf raking in the fall, spring clean up, jet skiing etc etc. They hurt their back or neck and then they seek out care to put out the fire.
Wellness care or preventative care is becoming more popular in the medical field. We even have our politicians talking about it now. Chiropractic is one of the best forms of wellness care. Your central nervous system that is made up of your brain and spinal cord is the main control center of your body. Chiropractic adjustments allows your body to not only have better range of motion, less muscle tension and less pain but also proper communication. This communication is essential to proper function of your body.
I get adjusted every week, because I love chiropractic care and have the unique situation that I can trade adjustments with Dr. Gordon. However, for the average patient, getting adjusted as frequent as once a month is beneficial and can maintain a healthy body. Give us a call and find out how chiropractic care can benefit you!
