For many years I have been asked, “How long do I need to be coming in for Chiropractic care?”
My response is always the same, “As long as you want to be healthy and operate at your optimum potential!” You see, the most important phase of care is not the initial intensive corrective phase. That is the phase to get you out of the acute pain and dysfunction that you are in just so your body can begin to heal and stabilize. It is the months and years after that which determine your health future.
Why We Recommend Lifetime Chiropractic Care
True wellness is not just about feeling good, not having symptoms or merely the absence of disease; it is about reaching and staying at your God given health potential! That is why I recommend lifetime care for every member of our practice and everyone who I ever speak to about health and chiropractic.
One of the biggest aspects of health is constant education and focus on getting better. Health is a journey, not a destination and it is by far your most important asset. Many people put more effort into their job, their hobbies, their family, their obligations and even material possessions like a car or house than they ever focus on their health.
I can tell you that for myself and my family we get checked for subluxation and adjusted every week no matter what. We put extensive resources towards our health in the form of the best nutrition, best water, best supplements, best natural health professionals, training seminars, books, videos, etc. Sometimes we have to sacrifice other areas of our life to make sure that our health is taken care of first. Our kids get adjusted on a regular basis, they also eat well, get supplements, and get the best resources because we want to give them the best possible start in life.
This is the gift I want to give to your family as well. A life free of pain, dysfunction, medications, disease and suffering. A true lifetime wellness health freedom!
The Most Important Phase of Care is Supportive Care
That is why the most important phase of care is the supportive care after your initial correction and the lifetime wellness care for the rest of your life that comes after that. The reason that this is so vital to your health is because we are constantly bombarded by stress emotionally, physically, chemically in our modern day society.
These stresses are constantly causing subluxation and undue pressure on the brain, body and organ system. Subluxation can never be fully corrected and stabilized in this environment so the goal with lifetime care is to reduce that subluxation, minimize the interference to its absolute lowest and improve the nervous system ability to adapt to stress.
This is why you never want to ask the question, “when am I done with care?” or “when is my last visit?”. There is no done, there is no last visit, health is a lifetime commitment and the research also shows this is the best way to live healthy and drug free for the rest of your life!!Maintenance: The Most Important Phase of #Chiropractic Care Click To Tweet
What is Your Health Worth?
This study observed health statistics of people over a period of time whose Primary Care Providers (PCP) were conventional Medical Doctors compared to those who had their PCP as Doctors of Chiropractic. Clinical and cost utilization based on 70,274 member-months (this is a large amount of time and people studied) over a 7-year period in those who had Chiropractors as a PCP when compared with Conventional MD as a PCP in the same geography and time frame demonstrated decreases of:
- 60.2% in-hospital admissions
- 59.0% less hospital days
- 62.0% less outpatient surgeries and procedures
- 85% less pharmaceutical costs.
Those with a Chiropractor for PCP had: 60% less hospital admissions, 62% less surgeries, 59% less days in hospital, 85% less pharmaceutical costs!
I will argue that Chiropractic care is one of the best investments a person can make for them and their family over a lifetime! Not just my opinion…based on the literature. It’s all about the Return on Investment! This is why living a Maximized Life, getting adjusted for health and prevention and putting your health first is the most important part of your life. We are here to guide you to that better health and to help everyone you know do the same thing.
