Most people think seeing the doctor is only important when they’re sick and scheduling a visit when you’re feeling fine is relatively new. When it comes to health and wellness, an increasing number of people want to achieve their best and are doing so by visiting the chiropractor…not just for back pain, but to stay well Here’s what you need to know.
The First Sign
Remember when you were little and being sick meant you stayed home from school when you didn’t feel well and went back when you were better? We have been taught to believe that being sick means there are obvious systems, but we know that isn’t always the case. Many health issues are the direct result of unhealthy habits and they don’t always have the clear symptoms that one would expect until the illnesses are advanced.
A Healthy Response
Sometimes symptoms don’t present themselves. Other times, your body can show symptoms of illness but actually be functioning optimally. For example, if you eat food that hasn’t been handled properly and find yourself ill, you might not feel good but your body is having a healthy response by expelling the toxins. True health isn’t just about how you feel, but about how well the body functions.
How well the body works is based on the wellness of the nervous system, and that is a key reason why so many people visit our chiropractic practice for wellness care. Our patients want every organ and tissue in their body to have an uninterrupted nerve supply, accomplished through chiropractic adjustments. When the body is functioning as it should, you can better detect small problems before they become serious health issues.
Achieve True Health
True health is more than not being sick. It is the combination of physical, mental, and social well-being. A diet rich in nutritious foods, regular exercise, enjoying time with friends and family — all of these are healthy habits that yield even bigger results when your nervous system is functioning optimally.
We know that everyone wants to feel good, but your healthcare should not be limited to whether or not you are experiencing pain or other negative symptoms. Health problems can exist without obvious symptoms, like heart disease and high blood pressure.
