This question is often asked in a negative way, suggesting that people don’t need to see a Chiropractor unless something is bothering them. The following example will help ease this concern. If you need 8 visits to resolve an episode of back pain, but it recurs 6 months later and you require 8 more treatments, you have now had 16 total visits and potentially missed important work or leisure activities. If you have your initial 8 visits, but continue to receive monthly treatments for 6 months, you’re now feeling great and have only had 14 visits, without work or leisure disruption. You’ve saved time, money and the aggravation of being “out of commission”.
Regular checkups allow health professionals to catch any developing problems before they become full-blown. Just like a regular dental checkup monitors your teeth, regular Chiropractic checkups can save you big trouble down the road by monitoring your body to ensure everything is working properly.
Another advantage to regular visits is overall health monitoring, as many people in Fort Erie can’t secure a family Doctor. Chiropractors are well-trained in recognizing concerns such as cardiovascular and neurological complaints, diabetes, and osteoporosis. When needed, we can direct you to the proper health care professional and help you avoid serious health issues.
