Your spinal column provides range of motion in three directions (forward and backward, side-to-side, and rotation) and protects the spinal cord which provides the lifelines from your brain to your entire body. Both of these functions are critical to ensuring continuous health and wellness. Dr. Zurek performs chiropractic spinal screening exams in Omaha, NE to analyze your spine to identify regions of limited mobility and detect the presence of nerve interference.
10 Reasons to Get Your Spinal Chiropractor Check-up
Everybody deserves to be healthy from the time they are born through their last breath of life. When you think about the birthing process, it is like a car accident to the baby because they are in a small space getting pushed out during the birthing process which really affects the baby’s development. Even if you have a C-section or a natural birth, there are interventions that can happen like clamps, vacuum, and forceps to get the baby out faster. This includes you, too many people wait until they have intense pain and suffering before they make their health a priority. Don’t let this happen to you, make your health a priority and enjoy a pain-free lifestyle.
You can’t afford to get sick or injured.
Now more than ever, you cannot afford to get sick. When you wait till you are sick or injured, you will need more of an intense care plan which will cost more because you will need a higher frequency visits at first compared to when you are not in in pain or sick. An unhealthy spine and nervous system can be the cause of many problems. Getting your spine and nervous system checked and adjusted regularly can help you stay healthier and save you money in the long run.
Good posture keeps you young.
When your body becomes bent over and crooked, you will look and feel old and decrepit. If you keep your posture and your spine straight and strong, you will stay healthier and feel younger. People often use drastic measures to preserve their youthful appearance as they age.
Scoliosis doesn’t happen overnight.
Over time the spine and nervous system deteriorates, but it’s not because of age, it is because of subluxations. Just like the tires on your car wear down unevenly when they are misaligned, the same can happen in your spine. You may have some areas in your spine that look and feel like they are 80 years old while you have other areas that are more like a 30-year-old. You can keep your entire spine healthy with chiropractic care.
The straw will break the camel’s back.
We’ve all heard the expression the straw that broke the camel’s back. This is so true for too many people who ignore minor spinal problems. One day they do something simple, like bend down to tie their shoe or just woke up, and they can’t get up. Major problems are much more painful and expensive to care for, and they can ruin your day, or even worse, your life. To get you the relief you need and want chiropractic care will get you back to doing the things you enjoy doing.
Quality of life depends on a healthy spine.
If you want to be healthy and active as you age, your spine and nervous system must be healthy. The only way to live at the highest potential possible you need to be getting adjusted on a regular basis.
Deterioration can begin within 2 weeks.
Researchers found that when the spine is misaligned it can begin to deteriorate within 2 weeks. Think about how many two weeks have passed since you were born, which is often when the first spinal injury or vertebral subluxation occurs. How many two weeks are there from a childhood fall to age 50? Is it any wonder why more than 15 million people are diagnosed with osteoarthritis each year? Don’t wait another 2 weeks for a checkup.
The nervous system controls your whole body.
Your spine protects your nervous system, which is the master control center of your body. The nervous system communicates with every cell in your body. Nerve pathways must be clear for the messages to get through. If you have a misalignment, it can cause a decrease in the function of vital organs and the entire body, and lead to unnecessary pain or other health problems.
Nerve pressure can exist without pain.
According to the research, pain is not a good indicator of how healthy or unhealthy your spine and nervous system. Spinal examinations such as posture, palpation, muscle testing, and computer scans are much better indicators. Pain is usually the last to show up and the first to be relieved when you begin chiropractic care. That is why we focus more on your overall health then just the areas of pain because to become truly healthy you need to have your nervous system functioning at its highest potential possible.
Pain came out of nowhere
If you neglect your spine and nervous system, you can be sure that when you need it the most due to stress, physical activity, business or pleasure travel, it can give out on you. Extra stress on a weakened spine and nervous system can overload your system and contribute to health problems. Chiropractic care can keep you healthy and prevent these inconvenient episodes from putting a damper on your life.
