Since the premiss of chiropractic care is better health, I am surprised that over the last 20 years of practicing that most of my new patients in my San Diego Chiropractic clinic are coming for treatment of pain. While chiropractic care is an extremely effective and natural treatment for pain but it’s roots lie in health maintenance.
Several years ago Kaiser, of all health care organizations, launched a whole new campaign based on better health through preventative health care. They had their vans and trucks covered with pictures of fruit and vegetables and healthy looking people and included the word “thrive” in their message – and people signed up for Kaiser’s healthcare in droves. The problem is that the core of Kaiser has not changed. I don’t believe that they are any more interested in delivering wellness care now than they were prior to the start of their “thrive” campaign.
Better Health Through Chiropractic
Chiropractic care is rooted in better health through preventative healthcare. While most patients use us for treatment of neck pain, back pain, headaches and other types of pain one of the best things about chiropractic treatment is its ability to keep you healthy.
Each day we stress our bodies, we sit for prolonged periods, lift without proper form, practice poor posture and neglect exercise and stretching – chiropractic promotes better health by unraveling this stress before it becomes damaging . Your body doesn’t go into a health crisis from just one day of these stresses but day after day these stresses have a cumulative effect – slowly causing irritation of joints and muscles until one day you have pain and sometimes pain with pinched nerves.
Chiropractic care delivered at regular intervals keeps these stresses in check by restoring full range of motion to your joints and preventing the daily stresses from becoming bigger problems. If you have not been to a chiropractor yet we would be happy to consult with you and tell you how to obtain better health with chiropractic care.
