Congratulations! You have been seeing your Indianapolis chiropractor for weeks now and you are feeling much better. Your back pain and discomfort are gone and you feel like you are able to go about your day enjoying your normal activities.
But now you have an important decision to make. Will you use chiropractic as merely a temporary fix to relieve your symptoms if and when the spine pain returns? Or will you continue seeing your Indianapolis chiropractor on a regular basis to maximize your care and help avoid your back problem from returning? Here at Meridian Chiropractic, we believe the choice is yours.
Here are a few thoughts to consider.
As a child, you probably stayed home from school when you weren’t feeling well. When you felt better, you returned to school because you were now “well” enough to return. But how your FEEL can actually be a poor judge of your health. There are many types of illness that can go undetected without any obvious symptoms. There are the more serious illnesses like cancer and heart disease but even tooth decay can go undetected for months. Many times your Indianapolis chiropractor can detect a spine and nervous system problem before you even feel the pain. Many symptoms actually subside before the muscles and ligaments that support the spine are actually healed. We see some patients even discontinue care and suffer relapses.
When you are feeling better, it is very tempting to discontinue treatment. We all get busy with work and family and commitments. You are not feeling any pain so it is difficult to think about seeing a doctor. Even many insurances plans discourage continued visits as they are deemed preventative and not “medically necessary.”
However, you brush and floss your teeth daily and see your dentist on a regular basis. You try and eat healthier foods and get plenty of rest. You exercise regularly. These and other healthy habits can help you look, feel and be your very best. Why not include a periodic chiropractic checkup as a part of your health regimen? Having your spine and nervous system working at their best is essential for good health.
Your health is your most valuable possession. Your health can influence everyone you know and everything you do. But the choice is yours. Regardless of your decision, the staff of the Meridian Chiropractic Clinic is happy to help you achieve your individual health goals.
Adopt chiropractic care as a healthy way of life. Use chiropractic care to help you stay well even after you get well.
