Healthcare Vs. "Sickcare"
When some people think of healthcare,
their thinking may be kind of backwards.Many people think of going to the doctor,
or healthcare when they are already sick, which is more
“sick care” than healthcare.
Chiropractic care embraces a philosophy
of wellness, which is focuses on “health” and “care”.
Taking care of yourself is really a
daily thing, for instance, we eat daily (and our choices of
food contribute to our health), do maintenance on ourselves,
like grooming, brushing our teeth, etc.
Why would we think that our bodies would need
anything less? I recommend chiropractic care for maintenance on occasion,
just like maintenance on a car, like a tune-up. Sometimes insurance does not cover maintenance, and
many times insurance is for “sick care”. Trips to your dentist or medical doctor
for checkups are considered preventative maintenance.
I follow a “use it or lose it” approach to
health with my philosophy of chiropractic, because my
concept of chiropractic involves the restoration of function
where it is lacking.This is
based on personal experience as well as the empirical
evidence I see daily with patients.As a chiropractic physician, I primarily focus on
neuromusculoskeletal problems, but when lifestyle, or diet
may be contributing to one’s lack of health, we can address
it and make it part of your in office “care” as well as your
as well as exercise are also components I utilize in my
office to promote a well-balanced daily “health and care”
regimen. When something is lacking in your ability to care for yourself, whether it be a lack
of function causing pain, stiffness, or just an inability to
do an activity you used to do.That’s what we’re here for.
