What is your definition of health? This is how the World Health Organization (WHO) defines health; “Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
You may have used Chiropractic sporadically as you experience discomfort, pain and ache in different parts of your body, which is a very good use of Chiropractic, however being under Chiropractic care can offer so much more than a temporary patch. Using Chiropractic periodically is very similar to using a smart phone only to make and receive phone calls while they have the capability to literally put the world in the palm of your hand! Sounds wasteful, doesn’t it?
So why do we need a care plan? For the same reason that people like Micheal Phelps, the most decorated Olympian in his category, or Martin Scorsese one of the most sought-after directors in the movie industry, didn’t do their craft once in a while with out setting goals and expectations. Plans give us guide lines and goals towards. Same applies to health. With out a plan and dedication, reaching optimal health is near impossible.
Chiropractic care plans provide each individual with a personalized plan depending on the condition at hand and the goals of each individual. Plans give us direction, a guide line to get from point A to point B. You won’t reach optimal health by using Chiropractic periodically as discomfort and pain creeps up, the same way that you won’t get fit by exercising and eating well for a week or two.
Advantages of being on a care plan;
- Make the most of your investment both time and money wise
- Re evaluations are included
- Ancillary services are 1/2 of normal service prices
- An individualized program tailored to your needs and goals.
We approach health by addressing different stressors, structural, bio-chemical and emotional. We do this by offering individualized Chiropractic care plans for individuals and families (yes children specially need to be under Chiropractic care). See my techniques page for more information on what methods I use.
What are stressors?
Basically they are divided into three branches.
1. Physical/Structural Health: How you use your body, or what it has experienced
- Positive Examples: Stretching and Healthy Exercise
- Negative Examples: Car Accident and Sitting All Day
2. Bio-chemical Health : What you eat and drink
- Positive Examples: Nutritious Meals and Good Supplementation
- Negative Examples: Preservatives, Pesticides, and Unhealthy Fats
3. Psychological / Emotional Health: The Direct Connection Between your Mind and Body.
- Positive Examples: Loving Relationships and Doing Something Good for Yourself.
- Negative Examples: Financial Problems and Relationship Conflicts.
All these have a direct effect on our health and well being. The reality about stressors is that they are always present and what we need to do is to get our body to perform at it’s maximizing potential. being under Chiropractic care will help you do exactly that; maximize your own body’s potential so you can be more and do more of the things you enjoy in life!
