Some people believe that “health care” or “caring for one’s health” begins when there is an apparent problem. We are even taught this by popular advertising that all we need to do to “stay healthy” is treat symptoms and feel good.
In fact this is hardly “health” care; rather it is merely crisis intervention. As people in our community have become more educated about health and are asking more questions about the care we receive, we are realizing that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
One way that thousands of families and millions of people have chosen to pursue health is with regular Chiropractic care. Chiropractic is extremely safe, gentle, and effective for all family members of every age.
Chiropractic works on a simple principle that the spine and nervous system controls and coordinates the function of every organ and cell in the body. The simple question is then, which of my family members have a spine and nervous system?
The simple answer is everyone does, of course. However, if there is interference with the nervous system, usually due to spinal vertebrae being displaced, normal body function is disrupted and poor health results.
The high school athlete in the family may complain of back pain or a knee problem, the middle school child may be having trouble concentrating and is getting poor grades, a mother may be having menstrual problems, an infant may have colic or ear infections, a father may have neck pain and headaches, and these are all related and have been corrected by Chiropractic.
Remember, health is “a state of optimal physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease.”
Are you operating at OPTIMAL health? Or just squeaking by?
Let Chiropractic care lead your family to optimal health.
