So why should you pursue chiropractic for maintenance/wellness, rather than simply using it as a way to treat injuries or pain?
Think of your body as an automobile. When you buy a car, it is in pristine condition and runs perfectly. However, the more you use it, the more likely it is for the car to develop issues. Maybe the oil needs to be changed; perhaps the brakes need to be repaired; maybe the timing belt needs to be replaced. These repairs and services may seem like a hassle, but they keep your car in good condition, preserve its value and ensure that it will run better for longer. They also help prevent breakdowns or on-the-road incidents that can be costlier and far more dangerous than any routine maintenance procedure.
Your body is very similar. Over time, day-to-day activities can lead to small spinal misalignments. Perhaps you are sitting at work all day with poor posture, or maybe your spine has naturally borne the brunt of a tough, athletic training schedule.
