What is Wellness Care?

woman with arms outstretched and smilingWhen people think about “wellness care” they often think about having a checkup with their doctor. But wellness care with chiropractic is much more proactive. You see, when you see a doctor for a checkup, you are checking to see if something is already wrong with you. Would having a checkup today at your doctor stop you from getting a headache next week? No, it doesn’t work that way.

A wellness approach to better health means adopting a variety of healthy habits for optimum function on all levels- physically, mental, social and spiritual. Chiropractic wellness care focuses on keeping your body functioning properly.

Chiropractic wellness care checks to make sure your spine is properly aligned and gently corrects any subluxation (misalignment) before you even begin to feel any pain. Pain, even headache pain, is one of the final warnings your body gives you that something is wrong. Remember, only 10% of your nervous system feels pain. Since 95% of all headaches originate in the cervical spine (neck), you may have been experiencing a problem in your neck for months before getting a headache. With chiropractic wellness care, maintaining a properly aligned spine (the neck is part of the spine), the problem in your neck may get corrected before you even get a headache!

Maintaining your spines alignment is like maintaining a car. Once you get your car fixed, frequent oil changes and checkups help prevent further and more costly damage to your vehicle. Your body works in a similar way. You get one spine, take care of it!!
