Each visit afterwards will consist of a treatment, a review of what has changed and what needs work, answer any questions you may have and prescribe some home care.
Health Care vs. Sick Care
Traditionally, we see doctors when we have some type of obvious ache or pain. Yet, waiting for these obvious symptoms to appear before finally seeking help is becoming an increasing burden on our health care system, economy and well-being.
And while it may be called “health” care, it’s actually sick care.
Chiropractors are leading the way with real health care that’s designed to keep you well. Not surprising, it’s called wellness care. And the preliminary research is astonishing!
A study published in a 1996 edition of Topics in Clinical Chiropractic looked at a group of seniors aged 75 years or older. Subjects who were receiving chiropractic care reported experiencing better overall health and had fewer hospital admissions, used fewer medications and were more active than their peers who did not receive chiropractic care.
A more recent analysis published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics looked at 311 chiropractic patients aged 65 years or older who had been receiving “maintenance” chiropractic care for five years or longer. When compared with subjects who were not receiving chiropractic care, they had half as many medical doctor visits and overall had healthier habits.
Other studies further confirm what a growing number of our own practice members have been telling us: it’s actually less expensive to stay well, than it is to get well.
