You & Your Chiropractor Promote Health NATURALLY...
In what way(s) does your chiropractor help you to achieve your optimum health level through chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care involves manual and non-invasive manipulation of the spine. You and your chiropractor work together as a team to improve your Posture, Movement, Strength, & Balance without surgery or invasive methods. Here are a few facts....
Fact 1: Good posture is a sign of good health and poor posture may actually create misalignment of the spine contributing to painful symptoms.
Fact 2: Healthy movement of the spine is critical in order to remain pain and injury free. Your chiropractor assesses and diagnoses your individual health status. A care plan that may include any combination of physiotherapy, soft tissue therapy, and chiropractic adjustments is presented and followed over a number of visits. The process is sometimes time consuming but for many it is much more appealing than a surgical option.
Fact 3: "If you don't use it, you lose it..." is an expression many of us have heard before. Left unchecked, unworked, and "unmoved" our musculoskeletal system loses its muscle tone and strength, ultimately resulting in lack of motion, atrophy, the potential for hazardous falls & breaks, and painful symptoms. Your chiropractor is a specialist in the mechanics and manipulation of the spine. Along with your care plan you may be expected to adopt a new exercise regimen.
Fact 4: "Balance" being the equilibrium of posture, movement, & strength is critical to your health and wellness. Chiropractic visits in conjunction with regular exercise such as walking, cycling, Tai Chi, Yoga, and Pilates, keep the body in harmony and good health. So do not be surprised if your chiropractor recommends that you engage in any one of these activities as a new addition to your lifestyle, and your continued chiropractic health.
