Exploding the Myth that Chiropractic is Forever

  If you're planning to visit Lake Worth chiropractor Dr. Craig Selinger, you might wonder if you're takiing a first step down a road that will continue for the rest of your life. A leading Palm Beach chiropractor, he'll tell you that it's just not trure. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Most doctors of chiropractic promote a preventative type of lifestyle which has been construed by adversaries to mean that chiropractic care requires a lifetime of commitment. Actually, recommending that patients return for periodic spinal care is no different that what dentists recommend to their patients in order to prevent cavities and gum disease.

Just as it would be ludicrous to believe that visiting a dentist once per lifetime would ensure permanently healthy teeth and gums it's equally as silly to think that visiting a chiropractor a few times will ensure a lifelong healthy spine. Our spinal tissues undergo daily bombardment of stresses originating from bad postural habits, suboptimal work environments, psychological stress, and hectic lifestyles just to name a few.

For these reasons, after the resolution of acute problems patients are given the option to receive periodic spinal checkups which acts to minimize the likelihood of future recurrences or development of new problems. The preventative approach in health care has been gaining much recognition as of late and there has been a large push in the medical community and health insurance industry to incorporate preventative programs into mainstream medicine.

It's really that simple. Periodic care to prevent future problems - safe, natural, convenient care now to avoid nasty and complex problems later. If you want to avoid future problems with shooting leg pain in Lake Worth, neck pain in Lake Worth, back pain in Lake Worth, pinched nerve pain or more, give Dr. Selinger a call. He'll start you on the road to feeling better, but you won't have to keep seeing him for the rest of your life - unless you want to do so.
