Why Do People Consult Chiropractors?
There are 5 reasons people come to chiropractors.
- To get a disease or problem treated.
- To prevent a disease or problem.
- To get your body working better.
- To be as healthy as possible.
- To express your fullest potential.
This is the dominant approach to health care today in the western world. It is based on the notion that health is the absence of disease. Its focus is on the symptoms and its highest goal is to relieve the symptoms.
Whilst it is temporarily successful it is also a guarantee of poor and progressively degenerating health. The long-term effects of this type of care are destructive to life and health.
Obtaining relief from symptoms is a gratifying experience; however being not sick does not equal being well.
Preventative or Stabilization Care is focused on preventing a reoccurrence of the presenting symptoms.
The limits of this type of care are that the focus is on what we DON’T want (sickness), rather than what we DO want (health).
What’s better than prevention?
