Maintenance is Key to Healthy Living
Once your body has fully healed, Dr. Vargo will recommend periodic maintenance adjustments to avoid problems in the future just as a dentist recommends regular teeth cleanings.We call this maintenance care.It is unrealistic to think that you don't put a high level of stress on your spine daily.We live in a high stress world.Our society is more on the go than ever before.We get less sleep, eat more bad foods, and pay little attention to our health.
Maintenance visits are considered tune ups to keep you at your best and correct any spinal misalignments before you are aware of them. There are many variables that will decide the frequency of a patients maintenance care plan including the patients stress level, how much arthritis they already have, how old the patient is, the type of work the patients does ect…
Most people are under the assumption that if they don't feel any pain that there is nothing wrong with them - that they are healthy. Unfortunately, pain is a very poor indicator of health. In fact, pain and other symptoms frequently only appear after a disease or other condition has become advanced. For example, consider a cavity in your tooth. Does it hurt when it first develops or only after it has become serious? How about heart disease? Regardless of whether you are talking about cancer, heart disease, diabetes, stress or problems with the spine, pain is usually the last thing to appear.
People who practice maintenance care are some of the healthiest people around.They are taking care of a problem before they feel any pain.
