Who wouldn’t want to live their life in health and vitality for as long as possible? The benefits of Lifestyle Care are well documented. From improving athletic performance, increasing brain function, and increasing bone density, to strengthening the immune system and preventing deterioration, Lifestyle Care ensures your potential to live an independent life for as long as possible.
Lifestyle Care is about keeping your spine and nervous system aligned, balanced, and functioning to its full potential throughout your lifetime. This allows your brain and your body to communicate efficiently, without interference, so that they can function at their highest level and you can enjoy life to the fullest.
People will frequently say, “This makes a lot of sense. How often should I come and get my spine and nervous system checked?” The answer is quite simple and depends a lot on you. The intensity of your Lifestyle Care will depend on the intensity of your lifestyle as well as the underlying condition of your spine and nervous system. People who live stress free lives and have no underlying deterioration in their spine or nervous system require much less Lifestyle Care.
On the other hand, people with moderate amounts of stress and deterioration require more frequent visits. Those who are under severe stress or have a lot of severe deterioration in their spine and nervous system require much more frequent visits to keep their body functioning at high levels of health. You and your chiropractor will determine together the frequency that is best for you based on your personal health condition and goals.
As the intensity of your lifestyle changes from month to month or from year to year you may find that the intensity of your Lifestyle Care also needs to change. If you have found that an adjustment every two weeks has been ideal for you and you change to a more stressful job with a lot of sitting or a long commute, you and your chiropractor may find that a weekly adjustment works better for you.
Maybe you are a casual exerciser and decide to start participating in triathlons. The increased intensity of your training might require you to increase the intensity of your visits to multiple times per week. If your life becomes less stressful and your underlying spinal conditions have already been corrected, you may find that your Lifestyle Care frequency may decrease in its intensity.
The most important thing for you to understand is that Lifestyle Care is not based on symptoms. Your frequency is not determined by how you feel. It is determined by whether or not you have a subluxation (a spinal imbalance with nerve pressure) that needs to be adjusted. Research has revealed that nerve compression can exist without pain. Waiting until you have symptoms to get checked is not a good idea. Only your chiropractor can determine whether you need an adjustment. They will do that through a chiropractic check-up.
Ask around and you will find that you probably know people who have been under chiropractic care for decades, not just because they have had a problem but because they have experienced the benefits of Lifestyle Care. These people may be some of the healthiest people you meet. They are enjoying a lifetime of independence, free from depending on others because their health has failed. Too many people are suffering because they are crisis oriented when it comes to their health. Don’t let this happen to you. It is easier, less expensive and more fun to stay well than it is to have to get well after you become sick or injured. Make Lifestyle Care your top priority and enjoy your lifetime of independence.
