I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard this, “I heard once you start going to a chiropractor, you always have to go!” That is the classic commentary on the chiropractic profession. That is like saying once you start working out, you always have to work out. Or, once you start brushing your teeth, you always have to brush your teeth. Okay, one more, once you start eating right, you always have to eat right. Are you getting my point?
You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to, but when you start to feel the benefits of regular chiropractic adjustments, you will most likely want to continue. Simply, you will feel better that you ever have, and you will want to keep it that way. It is a conscious lifestyle decision that any person in there right mind would make.
Chiropractic adjustments allow your body to work better than if you didn’t get adjusted. Just like your car, your spine needs alignment and maintenance, or it won’t work as well as it can. With your spine, structure leads to function. The better the alignment of the structure, the better the overall function of the body.
The better you are aligned and the better your spine is moving, the better your nervous system will work and the better you will feel. Your nervous system controls the whole show, and when there are misalignments in the spine, it will have a negative effect on the function of your nervous system and your entire body, via that system. Imagine how your car would hold up if you never got an oil change or a tune up?
The choice to get adjusted is always up to you. Chiropractic is not addictive, but being healthy definitely is! It is just a logical, and normal decision that the positive effects of chiropractic, will make you want to continue feeling your best.
