Why is maintaining chiropractic care and massage therapy important? For many reasons. We as humans deal with life’s ups and downs daily, and taking care of ourselves is essential to our overall well-being.
Take This Year For Example
This year has brought a tremendous, unprecedented amount of stress in ways we could never have imagined. Fear, isolation, loss of connection, not seeing family and friends, lack of movement, not getting a break, financial issues that are out of your control, and self-care are a few of the everyday struggles we’ve collectively faced.
Now picture for a moment that the amount of stress you can handle is a container… a basket. Each stressor life throws at you adds an apple, or 10, to your basket. Soon, your basket is overflowing. How do you take “apples” out? HEALTHY HABITS, such as exercising, chiropractic adjustments, getting proper rest, doing something that nurtures you, whether it be a hobby or activity that brings you joy, are a few examples. These healthy habits allow you to handle more, so when life throws you a few (apple) curveballs, it shouldn’t be overwhelming; your basket shouldn’t ever overflow.
Once your basket is empty, your work doesn’t stop there. It takes CONSISTENT EFFORT on your part to keep that basket as empty as possible.
Can Everything Be Fixed With Routine Treatment?
Simple answer, no. But coming in for chiropractic adjustments and massages are extremely important to your overall well-being. That being said, they shouldn’t be the only thing you are doing to manage your stress.
If you need direction, all of our practitioners are available to help you brainstorm ways to develop a maintenance plan. For example, think about your car; what do you do to maintain it? We have to get gas (fuel), we rotate our tires (get realigned), we get oil changes regularly (optimal function), and we even change or top-up fluids (hydration). Why do we sometimes take better care of our cars than we do ourselves? Could you benefit from more stretching? Do you need more intentional movement, training, or exercise? Do you need to be more diligent in keeping our appointments? What else can you be doing, especially this year, to be emptying your basket?
