What is Maintenance Chiropractic Care? It's like a dental cleaning. It's used to help you stay well, rather than treat an injury. Would you rather get a dental cleaning, or wait until you have a cavity? I think I know the answer to that one! Many patients have come to understand that when they get their maintenance adjustment, they simply continue to feel well. And isn't that the goal? To be able to enjoy the activities that you choose? Think about it for a second... We know the brain controls all the functions of our body. It's an anatomical fact that the majority of nerves that control these functions travel down the spine before arriving at the cell, tissue, or organ that it is controlling. If a spinal segment that moves out of place can "pinch" the nerve, so that these vital commands are reduced or cannot reach the cell, tissue or organ, can you see how important it is to have the spinal segment in its proper position? And that, my friend, is the essence of why Chiropractic treatment is beneficial for our health.
Most people who choose to receive maintenance care, are on very minimal treatment schedule. Some, like it so much, they continue to receive maintenance each week, just like I do. However, the majority of patients under maintenance care only get treated once every 3-5 weeks. If they get hurt in between, they simply call for an earlier appointment. It's that easy!
