I recently read this quote and thought it expressed exactly how I feel about my own body and how I wish people treated theirs.
The unfortunate reality is that the vast majority of people present to us with a long history of pain and dysfunction. To be honest, it’s not really their fault as most people aren’t aware of options available to them but there are too many people who will just ignore the increasing signs of symptoms that tell us something is wrong (gentlemen I’m talking to you!)
Most people push niggles and aches into the background with a “it’ll be right” attitude.
They wait for crisis to hit before acting. Perhaps this is human nature.
However, those who have undergone care in our office and had a successful outcome often ask when or how often they need to come in. It’s positive that most intuitively believe that ongoing maintenance makes sense but how often should that be?
You would be able to answer this question if you became more tuned into the small signs and symptoms that tell us we need to be adjusted. Handle them early on and they won’t become bigger things later.
So what are the early signs you’re ready for your next adjustment?
I would guess most of the time someone comes into our practice in pain (unless there’s been significant trauma) where there were some of these signs in the days to weeks proceeding it. Most of the time people ignore it until it becomes a larger issue. The key is to get in before this becomes something more significant. Doing this will help you avoid all the compensatory reactions that develop when left alone which’ll also make it easier to correct and majority of the time requires less visits.
Of course if you find these difficult to notice then we always recommend average time frames of maintenance that most use. However the more ‘in tune’ you are, the better and more empowered you are to manage your own body.
