Chronic health problems can affect your quality of life for decades. Whether they are musculoskeletal in nature affecting your back, neck, and limbs or they affect your organs (heart, lungs, stomach, kidneys or sex organs), your daily activities may become limited and your longevity can be compromised. The longer you wait the more suffering these chronic conditions deliver. Research shows that within two weeks of an injury, scar tissue can appear. Why would you wait another day when you can start your healing process right now?
You might choose to hold off on addressing chronic health problems because you have grown used to the problem and consider it normal. It is not normal. You might choose to wait because you feel like you don’t have the money and cannot afford to address the problem. This can be an extremely costly decision. The more chronic health problems become, the more expense is involved to care for them and the more likely you will experience some permanent damage.
No matter how long it has been, there is no better time than the present to start your healing journey. The human body has an amazing capacity to heal itself when you remove the interference to the nervous system and are consistent with chiropractic care and healthy lifestyle choices. The initial care, Crisis Care, can give you the relief and stability you are looking for, take the edge off, and give you hope for a healthy future.
Once your spine and nervous system are stable, and you stay consistent with your care through the Critical Transition, you will notice that your body begins to regenerate. If you are like most people you will feel younger and more energetic during this process. The energy that your body was using to protect you from your chronic condition will be freed up and can be redirected towards a more purposeful and healthy lifestyle. You will want to exercise. You will want to eat healthier. You will want to engage in activities you enjoy. Your newfound health and outlook on life will motivate you to make Lifestyle Care your top priority.
How long have you or a loved one been suffering from a chronic condition? Has it been months, years or decades? Now think about the oldest grandparent in your family history. If you live at least as long as they did and you do not correct your chronic condition now, how many more years of suffering do you have ahead of you? This is not your destiny. Researcher Ian D. Coulter, PhD’s study found that geriatric patients receiving chiropractic care are more active, live independent lifestyles and are less likely to end up in a nursing home.
Nurture the healing capacity of your body and don’t let your condition become more chronic than it is right now. Start your journey of healing and optimize your health by making an appointment today.
