Spine Care - Why is it so important?

As a patient in this office, you have heard us talk about the Spinal Care Class, and probably more than once. If you haven't attended one yet, be sure that you make that a priority. Here's why-

Whether you have seen a chiropractor prior to coming to Sweeney Family Chiropractic, or if you have never see one, this class is a necessary part of your care in this office. In a 45 minute class, we go over what Chiropractic is and isn't, what to do to get the best results from your care, and why we recommend what we recommend. It is simple- the patients that attend this class, get far better results and tend to heal faster. We see it over and over again. Why is this? Because if you don't have an awareness of how your lifestyle is impacting your spine, and don't have the urgency to stay on track, you will not have the same level of success.

Have you ever had a fitness or weight loss goal? Perhaps you recognize that regular exercise and a healthy diet are an important part of achieving these goals. Maybe you did some extra research and learned about the types of foods, thought patterns, and activities that cause inflammation, and what you can do to eliminate these things from your life. Maybe you even learned that getting enough sleep (an average of 8 hours per night), and drinking enough water are two of the most basic things you can do for yourself to have success in this endeavor.

But if your goals are only surface level- i.e. you are merely doing all this so that you can fit into a bikini or a pair of your favorite jeans- you might not have the level of urgency that will carry you all the way to the end. When the desire for success comes from a place of knowing what an unhealthy lifestyle is doing to your longevity, physiology, and over all well-being, the motivation tends to be stronger, and that sense of urgency is a catalyst to make lasting change.

Transforming your body takes time, consistency, and a commitment to the process. It is not something that happens over night. This is just as true with fitness and weight loss as it is with chiropractic and healing your spine. Your unhealthy habits didn't appear the day that you noticed you are a little thicker around the middle, just like the issues that lead you to have that back pain didn't start the day you first had a symptom. Many people don't think about seeing a chiropractor unless something hurts, and that is because they don't know what Chiropractic is all about. In a similar way, many people don't think about their health and fitness unless they start seeing the impact that an unhealthy lifestyle is having on their appearance. But there is so much more to health and wellness than how you look or feel.

Chiropractic is about removing interference to your nervous system. When you have a subluxation, your nerves become impinged due to a misalignment and fixation in your spine. The chiropractic adjustment is designed to remove this fixation and restore normal motion to the joint so that the nerves can function optimally, without interference. This is a BIG DEAL. Each adjustment is an important step along the way to healing chronic pain, health issues, and dis-ease. With time and repetition, amazing things can happen. Chiropractic is an essential part of longevity, wellness, and optimizing health. If you aren't getting your spine checked for subluxation regularly, you are missing a big piece of the puzzle when it comes to your health.

Our Spinal Care Class goes over this in detail, and we do it in a way that makes sense so that you can have the needed sense of urgency to stay committed to the process while your spine heals. Consistency and repetition pave the road to success. We are committed to your success in healing in this office, and created this class so that you can reach your goals and be the healthiest you. We always encourage family to join in on your healing process, so feel free to invite them to our class. Anyone that attends our class that is not yet a patient, can get a free exam and x-rays. This is $250 of savings. We hope to see you there!
