Chiropractic should be used primarily as a preventative measure, as it is easier to eliminate many problems in the early stages before they become symptomatic. Thus, appropriate and regular treatment can achieve optimal function of the musculoskeletal system and nervous system and allow for continued freedom from interference.
Just as with preventive dental health care, such as brushing your teeth daily, eating a healthy diet and regularly seeing your dentist for professional dental cleanings, it is also important to be active in preventive care for a healthy musculoskeletal system.
Preventive chiropractic care aims to detect dysfunction in joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments and restore optimal function before symptoms and pain develop.
This is because if the vertebral and joint bodies are misaligned, the nervous system is disturbed in its function. This then results, for example, in headaches, dizziness, fatigue, painful movement restrictions or even sleep disturbances. Also, disturbances of well-being and dysfunctions such as nausea, intestinal irritation, colic, tinnitus, middle ear infection, respiratory problems, eye problems, sinusitis can be resulting symptoms.
Many competitive athletes take advantage of this, using preventive chiropractic treatments to stay fit and healthy, as well as to maintain stable and even increase performance.
Companies and businesses have also recognized the benefits of preventative chiropractic care for themselves and their employees. In this way, the well-being, satisfaction and performance of the workforce is constantly strengthened, which is an important success factor for a company.
In the preventive phase, the body is stable and the healing process is complete. Here we recommend our patients treatments in longer, but regular intervals usually of 4-6 weeks to maintain mobility and thereby prevent relapses.
Nevertheless, it is always possible that old behavioral patterns or stress (physical, chemical and emotional) may cause pain or discomfort to reappear. In this case, we recommend our patients to make an appointment as soon as the first symptoms appear and not to wait for the regular screening appointment.
All our patients also receive recommendations as well as tips on what to do yourself in everyday life.
Our recommendations and the new habits for everyday life even have a positive influence on the entire body functions, such as sleep, digestion, cardiovascular system, and concentration.
