Chiropractic plus....

Published May 3rd, 2016 by Dr. Tokar

When you're under active chiropractic care, our main goal is to get you feeling better as soon as possible by restoring proper function to the nervous system. Many people find that their symptoms subside fairly quickly when they follow their chiropractor's recommendations for frequency and consistency of their care. 

But what happens when you are feeling better? Do you stop getting adjusted because the problem is gone? Wait until the next flare up or episode (which may be worse or last longer!!)? No!! If you're spine has finally given you signals that something is wrong and chiropractic adjustments are helping you feel better, your body may need to go through some rehab or strengthening to ensure the work we've done to get you back on track wasn't for nothing!! If you have weakened or degenerated areas in your spine, you HAVE to add in a regimen of strengthening to help support your body. The doctors at our office in combination with our awesome floor staff will come up with a plan that best suits your specific needs. 

Stretching and strengthening are essential to having a well-supported spine and body. You don't need to train for a marathon, just include some area-specific exercises that will focus on protecting your body and keeping you feeling great! Make sure you talk to you doctor at your next visit about when you may be ready for the next phase of your chiropractic care.

You maintain your teeth and your car... Don't neglect your spine until it's too late!!
