Yesterday I was talking to a friend who asked me why when you start going to the chiropractor you always have to go back? I said, “I don’t know, why do you?” At Simply Health we don’t assign your treatments like an ongoing prescriptions. Our motto is “holding is healing”, by that we mean that we expect that you should be holding the adjustments we provide and you shouldn’t expect to be adjusted every visit… forever. We work to get you the patient to a state where we are preventing injury instead of just fixing the injury, that means seeing you less and to you that means less money out of your pocket.
The body is an amazing machine and it has an ability to heal itself; but, it can only do that when the communication between the brain and the body is not hindered in some way. That means that the nervous system must function properly so the body and brain can communicate, and that means the spine must work properly. We know from research that the weight of a dime can cause a decrease in the ability of a nerve to function properly.
Going back to my conversation with my friend I told him that he should think of Chiropractors as more like a Dentist. Usually most people don’t go and see their dentist every six months like they should to prevent tooth decay. They usually wait until they are in need, then they put that off for a while longer. When the pain is too much to bear they drag themselves into the dental clinic and say … “fix me;” to which the dentist replies,”OK, but your going to have to come back a few times to get this fixed!” It isn’t till afterwards that the patient realizes that they should have gone into the dentist sooner to maintain their teeth a little better before… and, it would have cost less too.
There are a lot of individuals out there who are not getting their spines checked and maintained. So when someone does come into the office too late it usually takes a little more time than one or two sessions to “get fixed.” If people were more proactive with their health and exercised prevention care more the public would have a lot less visits to both the Chiropractic, Dental and Medical Physicians.
Simply Health Chiropractic is dedicated to removing nerve interference in your body at the source; to improve brain and body communication and helping you to prevent nerve interference. We like to say, “If you bumped you head as a kid you should be seeing us.” Call or stop in today to establish care for your spine.
