For most people, doctor's appointments are only made when they are feeling unwell. It is a relatively new practice for people to schedule a doctor's appointment when they are feeling just fine. Many people want to reach optimal health, and so an increasing number of people are regularly visiting their chiropractor. These regular chiropractic adjustments are to stay well, not just relieve back pain!
The First Sign
Think back to when you were a kid. If you were sick, it meant staying home when you didn't feel good and going back to school when you were better. Since we were children, we've been trained to think that being sick means there are clear and obvious symptoms, but that isn't always true. There are a whole slew of health issues that are a direct result of unhealthy life choices that don't show the obvious symptoms one would expect until there are quite advanced.
A Healthy Response
On the other hand, symptoms showing themselves can also mean your body is having a healthy response. For example, if you eat contaminated or improperly handled food, you may find yourself suffering from nausea and vomiting as your body tries to get it out of your system. Though you don't feel good, your body is having a healthy response.
True health doesn't always equate to how you feel in each moment but how well your body functions.
Central Control System
The level at which your body works at is based on the wellness of your nervous system, and that is exactly the reason why so many people see us for wellness care. Our patients want to ensure that each and every tissue and organ has an uninterrupted nerve supply. It is simply good sense to detect small problems before they develop into serious health issues.
Achieve True Health
True health means more than just not being sick. It is the combination of your physical, mental, and social well-being. A healthy diet, regular exercise, water consumption, and just about any other healthy habit you can imagine will yield better results when your nervous system is functioning optimally.
We all want to feel good, and your healthcare should not be limited to whether or not you are experiencing pain or other symptoms. Issues can exist without the obvious symptoms, like heart disease, dental cavities, and high blood pressure.
