Routine chiropractic care is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. It helps sustain proper nerve function, corrects posture and helps to prevent many types of injuries, including arthritis. At C & C Chiropractic, we strongly believe in preventative care and maintaining wellness. One of the largest myths about chiropractic is that it is only necessary when injury occurs. Yes, it is helpful in that respect, but more importantly, it preserves your body’s health and performance.
What is wellness?
The words “health” and “wellness” have different meanings in different settings and to different people. We at C & C Chiropractic describe wellness as knowing your body and maintaining and avoiding injury and disease through preventative care. To uphold a well-rounded healthy lifestyle it is important to eat well and exercise regularly, and routinely visit your chiropractor as well as other health professionals. After the initial treatment plan is finished, there is a preventative maintenance schedule that steps in. It is different for everyone, but keeping with that schedule keeps your body healthy and prevents you from re-injury. That, in essence, is the chiropractic lifestyle.
Another common misperception is that chiropractic care is only for adults. Chiropractic care is important for people of all ages. In fact, maintaining proper spinal function while children are growing is very important. It assists the body during a strenuous time and also can prevent many future problems. This is why we advise you to not only come in yourself, but come in as a family. We also offer family discounts to ease the financial burden.
During pregnancy a woman’s body undergoes many extreme changes. Changes such as these can increase stress and pressure on the spine and other joints in the body. Adding chiropractic adjustments can help ease the process, prevent pain and also keep your body functioning properly at a very important time.
