Today’s Question: “Should I continue chiropractic care if I don’t have any symptoms and I feel better?”

Yes! Just because symptoms disappear, does not mean your subluxations are corrected. Most of the patients seen in our office have spinal degeneration (decay) which has taken years to develop. The trauma of the birth process, slips, falls, accidents and countless other stresses over the course of your lifetime adversely affect the health of your spine. The longer you wait to have your spine checked by a chiropractor, the longer it will take to correct your subluxations. However, how you choose to use chiropractic care is ultimately up to you. It has been our experience that those who stop care when they are “feeling fine” return with the same health challenge(s) which brought them to our office in the first place…only it’s usually gotten worse. On the other hand, those patients who commit to long-term wellness find their health challenge(s) rarely return and they enjoy a higher quality of life & health.
