Pain is the last symptom to appear, and unfortunately the first to leave. The ligaments and muscles that support your spine take longer to heal than is indicated by how you feel. Your body continues to heal these soft tissues long after your symptoms are gone. Continuing with chiropractic care even after the pain is gone, will result in a complete recovery. If you do not continue, you may suffer a relapse and be in more trouble than before.
Long periods of sitting, standing, financial worries, toxic environments, and many everyday activities can stress you and your spine. The slightest trauma can cause interference to your nervous system and compromise optimum health. Maintenance care can help keep you healthy and avoid those small problems from becoming big (expensive) ones.
Do You Want To Suffer A Relapse?
Pain and symptoms are a warning. They signal that something bigger is wrong. The bigger, underlying problem is usually a spinal or soft tissue problem that has occurred as a result of improper spinal function. Without continued chiropractic care, muscles and connective tissue will continue with unhealthy patterns and will eventually result in a relapse. Rehabilitative care continues to retrain and strengthen your spine to help avoid a relapse.
Besides keeping you, you and performing at your best, continuing your care can save money. Just as regular maintenance for your car can prevent expensive repair work, regular chiropractic check-ups help avoid the expense of having to correct preventable problems.
