BUT DOC, I DON'T HURT ANYMORE
WHY AM I STILL COMING IN?
If you are like most chiropractic patients, you would have never set foot in our office unless you had some symptom or symptoms which became so unbearable you could no longer ignore them.
Then, we examined you and found the cause of your symptoms. In other words, we found the problem: Vertebral Subluxation. And in many cases, we found your problem had been there for many years.
So why is there such a long time between the onset of the problem and the awareness of it?
Quite frankly, your body is so well-equipped for keeping itself functioning that it often does not use its energy to warm you of small, developing problems.
Unfortunately, most diseases are a process which begins with a small, developing problem which worsens over months and years... and they go undetected until you become aware of the dangers that has been done.
Consider this list of conditions, which may have few or no symptoms until their end stages:
Benign prostatic hypertrophy
Coronary artery disease
Fibroid tumors of uterus
Polyps of large bowel
Pulmonary valve stenosis
Valvular heart disease
Vertebral subluxation is often just as silent. And just as deadly, since subluxation literally interrupts the communication between your brain and your body.
Therefore, since subluxation is both silent and deadly, we want our patients to be committed to three goals.
- Following your care plan until your subluxation is corrected.
- Maintaining your corrections through regular chiropractic maintenance visits and other positive health choices.
- Telling others you know about getting checked for vertebral subluxation, even if they have no symptoms.
