Maintaining the Golden Goose

Making time for self-care

   We all have excuses for not getting to the Chiropractor more often - too many appointments, too many responsibilities, too many 'you fill in the blanks.'  You're the golden goose and you have little time and LOTS of people to satisfy.  But what you don't realize is those 'I'm too busy' excuses are the EXACT reasons why you need to take better care of your spine and Nerve System.


     Every activity you perform starts as a mental impulse in your brain that travels through your spinal cord and nerves until it reaches its final destination.  Nothing happens in your body without FIRST being patterned in the Nerve System.  From the simple act of getting up from a chair to more complex ones like balancing your books, everything you do in Life is first done in your Nerve System then executed in your body.  And the more clear your Nerve System is kept with regular maintenance Chiropractic care, the more efficient and effective those jobs become.


     A full plate is no excuse for missing adjustments.  If you have co-workers and family depending on you, you owe it to them AND yourself to maintain a clear nerve system so you can always perform to your best.  A well- adjusted goose keeps laying golden eggs.


Note from Dr. Katie:

One of our favorite quotes in the office is: "Either you make time to stay healthy now or you will have to make time to be sick later."  We all know that we are much more efficient and productive when we are feeling good and out bodies are functioning well.  All too often people will put off getting help for their headaches, sciatica, lower back pain, neck pain, or mid back pain by telling themselves that they can deal with it and just don't have the time.  However, as they delay treatment, the problem gets worse and ends up taking much more valuable time to fix.  We always encourage patients to get their concerns taken care of sooner than later and then maintain the changes for the future.

If you have been putting off taking care of any of the common aches, pains, and health issues that we help as chiropractors, STOP DELAYING!  Come get checked to see how we can help - 847-788-0880.
