Many people find chiropractic care in a search for pain relief. Maybe they’ve just had an injury or been in an accident. Perhaps they have been dealing with the pain for weeks or years. Chiropractic care is very effective at helping people find pain relief and restoring function to their lives. But it’s also important to keep the body aligned and balanced, even when you don’t feel pain. Regular chiropractic adjustments and simple stretches & exercises are key to helping the body maintain full-functionality and balance.
Maintenance Care consists of regularly-scheduled visits and routine stretches & exercises. You’ll often hear Dr. DeWitt say that “if people would consistently do the stretches & exercises I show them, I’d probably be out of a job.” When you’re feeling pain-free and doing your stretches & exercises, even just one visit a month should be enough to maintain full-functionality, enhance sports and athletic activities, prolong your quality of life, and continue to enjoy pain-free range of motion in the spine and other joints. We could compare it to getting regular dental cleanings to avoid cavities and other dental issues as opposed to those who don’t go to the dentist until they have a toothache and discover major issues that may have been avoidable. Chiropractic maintenance—meaning getting regular adjustments and doing the routine stretches & exercises—works in the same way by helping prevent major issues.
Maintenance Care is especially helpful for those who are recovering from an injury or chronic pain. Though they may not feel pain or discomfort after acute treatment. This type of maintenance care is to prevent the return of the original condition. Regular attention reveals small problems before they become more serious. Prevention saves time and money by helping you stay well.
Dr. DeWitt cares about your health. His goal isn’t just to get you out of pain for a few weeks or months—the goal is to keep you happy, healthy, and functioning your best for life.
