Chiropractic is a principled form of healthcare, meaning that it’s meant to maintain your body and health over time rather than just providing a quick fix. Clearly, the “sick care” model wouldn’t allow this goal of long-term, preventative care to work.
Although many chiropractors specialize in providing temporary relief, the practice was never intended to work that way. Instead, the goal is to pinpoint and identify the causes of a patient’s health problems and correct them directly at the source, resulting in true correction.
For example, vertebral subluxation complex, a serious condition of the spine which inhibits the body’s ability to heal itself, is corrected through this practice of principled chiropractic. At Sommers Chiropractic , we will thoroughly examine and analyze the spine, allowing us to create a specific protocol of adjustments and exercises to correct the problem. Dr. Michael Sommers will also educate you on how to maintain optimal spine and nervous system health throughout the years.
If vertebral subluxation was approached in a way that emphasises temporary relief, the exact problem would likely not be addressed. Instead, the focus would be placed on the specific area that’s in pain and the deeper underlying issues that are causing that pain would be overlooked. We might be able to relieve the targeted pain, but only temporarily.
Ultimately, when it comes to true correction and principled chiropractic versus temporary relief, the best choice is clear. Avoid the recurrence of pain and injury. Schedule an appointment within the Burlington community at Sommers Chiropractic to ensure optimal health and relief for years to come.
