Healing On A Spare Tire

In case you get a flat, the temporary donut in your trunk is meant to get you off the road and to the nearest service station for proper repair ASAP. Manufacturer’s instructions warn you to take it slow and easy when driving on them - those tiny tires aren’t designed to withstand the load of normal driving. But regardless of that warning, you’ve probably seen some idiot speeding down the highway on one, oblivious to the potential risks. 

Some people treat their health that way. When they get an injury or a health problem they mask their symptoms with “spare tire” medication, all the while continuing the activities that got them there in the first place. They pay little attention to the risks of temporarily patching their problem with drugs and pass on fixing the CAUSE of their problem. That can get you into trouble. 

When it comes to acute or chronic health problems, the best policy is to fix the underlying cause of the problem the right way instead of masking the symptoms with medication. That’s the core philosophy of drugless Chiropractic care. In the short term drugs may bring you false comfort, but in the long run you’re risking a serious blow out.

Roller Coaster Chiropractic

It's not uncommon to see clients who get great results from chiropractic stop their care once they feel good, only to return with their original problem or something worse.  Many repeat this cycle over and over again - traveling up and down the feel good, feel bad roller coaster of temporary relief, without truly getting healthy.

Chiropractic used correctly goes beyond the wavering cycles of symptomatic care, to pursuing the higher standard of optimal function.  Whether you feel good or bad, a body that exists in a sustained subluxated state is less likely to repair itself when injured or perform to it's best when under demand.  If, however your body is allowed to reach its full potential with regular adjustments and a perpetually clear Nerve System, the sky's the limit to what you can achieve. 

If your chiropractor gets you up and over the first challenging hill on your road to recovery, don't expect the rest of your health to coast perpetually without some effort to keep it going.  Unfortunately, the temporary pain relief ride eventually stops.  If you want abundant health, you need to keep the Chiropractic momentum going.
