Wellness care, sometimes called chiropractic maintenance care, is referred to as the time after your initial spinal problems have been corrected or stabilized. Patients will have no chief complaint but have their spines checked for vertebral subluxations and adjusted to maintain proper function and optimal health. Once your body has fully healed, wellness care can help to ensure your physical problems do not return and keep your body in optimal condition. Maintenance is viewed as a preventative measure.
Wellness care is the key to healthy living. It ensures the health of your musculoskeletal system. By continuing with a wellness care program, you can avoid many of the aches and pains many people suffer through. Your joints will last longer, and you will be able to engage in more of the activities you love.
Here are a couple of things to consider when assessing chiropractic wellness care. Degeneration from a subluxation begins to appear within one to two weeks. Many times patients do not feel pain immediately when a subluxation occurs, much like you don’t feel immediate pain from a cavity in a tooth. Pain may not show up until the degeneration causes a large amount of damage. By maintaining a wellness program, you will avoid these pitfalls.
The ultimate goal of wellness care is to keep stress off your nervous system, which allows your body to function better and helps prevent all sorts of problems in the future. It also enables you to better handle future stresses. In short, “chiropractic maintenance” will make every aspect of your life more effective and enjoyable.
