The wellness phase of care is the long-term plan to help maintain the health and longevity of the spine and is the most important phase of care for every patient. Patients get adjusted at regular intervals to prevent re-injury, pain, and immobility. The doctor takes care of the normal wear and tear of everyday life before it turns into pain. Because the chiropractic adjustment is meant to help improve the function of the spine, nervous system, and ultimately the body, the patient does not have to be in pain to utilize care. Just like regular maintenance on your car, regular adjustments help the body last as long as possible. When the central nervous system functions at its best, falls, sprains, strains, headaches, and even sickness can be prevented!
