Why should I return (especially I’m feeling fine)?
“Delays have dangerous ends.” – William Shakespeare
You entered our office feeling terrible and now you feel great. So why does your chiropractor suggest coming in again? “Why can’t I return when I’m feeling bad?” you may ask.
“I Feel Fine” Health Care
We’ve all seen people looking like death warmed over who say they “feel fine.” Yet they have no energy, sleep poorly, are tired, depressed, have aches and pains, headaches or backaches. Too many people who “feel fine” have a sudden heart attack, stroke, debilitating pain or are diagnosed with a serious disease.
Sadly, too many people have lost touch with how they really feel. They’ve lost sensitivity or ignore their body’s subtle signs of disease. Don’t make that mistake!
Why More Visits?
Most people first visit our office for chiropractic care after they’ve had years of long-standing subluxations. By that time “gunk” (scar tissue or fibrosis) builds up around the spinal discs, nerves, and joints and prevents complete healing. That’s one reason why 86% of those in automobile accidents still have symptoms ten years later.
Long-standing subluxations also cause postural changes and tender muscle areas (trigger or tender spots). You may “feel fine” but when someone touches a “hot spot”, you jump! Scar tissue may require months or years of adjustments before your spine is strong again. The longer you wait, the more scar tissue “gunk” builds up. Because of that, here’s a good chance that you’ll be back in our office in the not-too-distant future with symptoms that may take longer to go away (“I don’t understand it doc, the last time I felt better after a couple of visits…”).
Why settle for less?
Many people visit chiropractors only when they’re sick or in pain. That’s a lot better than using drugs or surgery, but chiropractic has so much more to offer. Keep your body free of subluxations so it may continue healing; so that it may promote a healthier body, with less stress, more energy and greater resistance to disease.
Why be content to be merely free from pain when you can also ensure better health, vitality, and strength for yourself and your entire family for their entire lives?
Are you and your family carrying the silent killer, the subluxation? Only a chiropractic checkup can tell. Come in for a checkup – and bring the family too!
