Preventative Care

Did you know that 80% of adults will suffer from back pain at some point in their life, and further, that back pain is currently the #1 cause of missed days of work in the United States. Is there a way to prevent pain and injury from occuring? Yes… Preventative Maintenance

One very large study conducted in Canada, the 1993 Manga Study, concluded that regular chiropractic care would save hundreds of millions of dollars annually in work disability payments and direct health care costs.

Each year, DC’s help millions of people find relief from pain. Pain from sports, weightlifting, auto accidents, work related injuries, headaches, sciatica, tendonitis, fasciitis, arthritis, and a vast array of other discomforts. Chiropractic requires no drugs or surgery and is generally very cost effective. In fact, every major health insurance carrier includes chiropractic treatments in their policies.

But why wait for pain or injury. Why not prevent it altogether. Did you know that poor posture, muscle imbalance, and repetitive wear and tear result in joint misalignments (subluxations), which increase the incidence and progression of disc bulge/herniation, disc degeneration, and arthritis – all are major causes of chronic back pain.

The longer they are left untreated, the higher the percentage you will end up with pain. Which can be both inconvenient and expensive. Improve your quality of life, schedule your preventative maintenance treatment.
