Living For Today

So many diseases that tax our health care system are the result of long-term abuse or neglect.  Lifestyle choices produce obesity, diabetes, heart disease and other common problems.  But because it can take decades for the heart attack to show up, these issues are easy to ignore.

If taking the elevator instead of the steps immediately resulted in a visable weight gain, you'd take the stairs.  If expressing anger, envy or grief instantly created a stomach ulcer, you'd be careful about expressing those emotions.  But they don't.  It can take years for the  earliest symptoms to show up.  By then, the problem can be well advanced.

"It won't happen to me," we lie to ourselves.

Yet, the damage is done.  It's so incremental as to hardly matter.  But it does matter.  That's why some of our most health conscious practice members choose to see us on a regular, ongoing basis.  Can chiropractic care reverse years of obvious abuse and neglect?  Of course not.  But periodic checkups can often catch little problems before they become serious.
