You may be wondering why at Express Chiropractic of Frisco we recommend getting regular chiropractic care. You may be wondering why can’t I get adjusted a couple of times and be done. This is a very common and important topic that gets discussed. Hopefully, we can help you understand more below.
The easiest way to make sense of regular chiropractic care is by looking at other health habits we perform on a normal basis.
Eating a balanced diet
Food is the fuel which powers our body. By eating healthy it allows our body to do all the amazing things we need to thrive. By eating good foods and staying hydrated we allow our body to function at it’s best so we can be at our best. This is something we do every day to promote health and wellness. When we stop giving the body the nutrition it needs it can lead us down the path of disease and sickness.
Keeping our bodies moving is a very important aspect of our total health. Working out allows us to build strength and muscle and keep up our endurance. By staying physically fit it can help prevent disease and promote wellness. A sedentary lifestyle does the opposite and can cause all sorts of problems. It takes time to improve our physical fitness just like it takes time for the effects of decreased movement to set in.
Taking care of your teeth
Most of us brush and floss our teeth at least twice per day. Why do we do that? We do it because we are told it will help with our dental hygiene and keep our teeth and gums healthy. There are also other health benefits to oral hygiene to take into consideration such as how it can affect your heart.
Regular chiropractic care
These are three things we do on a daily basis to help improve our overall quality of life. Regular chiropractic care is no different. You need to keep your spine healthy and moving properly. When the spine becomes misaligned it can put pressure on the nerves and cause dysfunction throughout.
Things we do every day can slowly shift us out of alignment. It does not have to be a car accident or major trauma like most people assume. These daily microtraumas including poor posture, stress, decreased sleep, poor nutrition, lack of movement, as well as a host of others can cause disruptions in our spinal joints. These, microtraumas down the road may eventually manifest as pain or other sorts of symptoms.
That is why it is important that we don’t wait for the symptoms to occur to seek treatment. Regular chiropractic care can help prevent these flare-ups and even if they do occur reduce the time it takes for your body to heal.
A retrospective study of 2,828 patients conducted at California’s College of Medicine revealed that chiropractic care delivers profound and consistent improvements in:
Energy, spinal flexibility, reducing pain, mental and work-related focus, self-esteem and depression
