Many people believe that they should only seek medical care when they are injured or ill, or when something within their bodies has gone wrong. This approach, while understandable, is fundamentally flawed. Modern medicine offers an astounding range of benefits, and individuals can attain significant improvements in their overall quality of life by taking a proactive approach to their own health and well-being. Preventative care is part of that process, and it offers patients a chance to optimize their bodies before an injury or illness takes place.
One of the foundational principals of chiropractic care is the importance of achieving and maintaining proper spinal alignment. The human spine forms the primary structural support for the entire body. Yet the spine is comprised of 33 individual bones, stacked on top of one another and held together with a complex system of tendons, muscles, and ligaments. If this central column is not in perfect alignment, then a vast number of other bodily components can be thrown out of sync. Misalignment can occur in a number of different ways, including injury, illness, chronic stress and even via birth defect. The aging process also leads to changes within the spine, many of which can be addressed through preventative chiropractic care.
Many people include preventative chiropractic care as part of their overall healthy and active lifestyle. When the human body is functioning at its peak level, performance is optimized. The risk of injury decreases and individuals are able to push their bodies to reach new heights and become stronger and more agile. This is why so many professional athletes make preventative care part of their overall training routine. Regular spinal adjustments are a matter of routine for many football players, performers, and Olympic athletes. Creating and sustaining a professional relationship with a highly trained chiropractor is as crucial to success as working with a skilled trainer or a gifted coach.
