Chiropractic: Essential for Preventing Health Problems
Our lifestyles today, including both our personal and professional activities, demand good health in order for us to enjoy success and fulfillment. There is no doubt that we are moving at a faster pace than people did just a generation ago and participating in a much wider range of activities.
On one hand, much of what we do is sedentary. But at the same time, we have a passion for pursuing demanding sports and other outdoor activities. Because our lives are so deeply invested in such divergent ventures, the value of maintaining our health and wellness is at a premium. Preventing the injuries and illnesses that interrupt our lives is critical.
I’m glad that more and more people as well as our institutions are recognizing the vital role of prevention in health care, but even then, we’re spending some 20 percent of all our money on combating disease and that number is expected to go up to 25 percent in the coming years!
Chiropractic and wellness
Since the first days of chiropractic, its emphasis has been on promoting good health and preventing disease. And at Ramer Chiropractic, we are dedicated to prevention and elevating the wellness of our patients. We know that when the body is in balance, it has a tremendous capacity to maintain good health and fight disease, and that the spine can affect the overall health of a person.
When your neuromusculoskeletal system is functioning properly, it enables and empowers your body’s natural healing power. When there are misalignments in your spine, it puts you on a path to both pain and disease.
A healthy spine combined with a healthy lifestyle adds up to optimum wellness, and that’s the holistic approach we take with our patients from all around the Santa Monica area. New patients often come to us for help with a physical problem or illness that they are dealing with and we start a custom treatment program that resolves their problem.
The value of prevention
However, we know that implementing a prevention program is far more valuable than addressing one acute health problem after another, so we recommend a schedule of preventative chiropractic visits as well as offer lifestyle and nutritional guidance to achieve an optimum level of wellness.
At Ramer Chiropractic we are highly trained and experienced in diagnosis and we can often detect problems even before our patients feel any pain or discomfort. Using advanced methods of treatment – including gentle, low-force instrument adjusting and activator adjusting methods – we are able to correct misalignments early and prevent the major problems that would have occurred had they gone unnoticed until pain or illness set in.
This approach to prevention goes further than many appreciate. By maintaining good spinal and nervous system health, your body’s immune system is able to operate at its optimum level. This prevents disease and keeps your other systems healthy as well. When you put all of these benefits together, they allow our patients to maintain their active lifestyles without interruption, greatly benefiting their personal lives, family life and even careers.
Further, because we recognize the value in taking a holistic approach to wellness, Ramer Chiropractic is also able to give sound dietary advice and help our patients establish individualized exercise routines to improve their overall strength, flexibility and physical wellbeing.
Statistics prove that we spend most of our health care dollars fighting disease and illnesses that are preventable. We urge you to consider the full scope of health and wellness in your life and make prevention a habit. It will serve you well all throughout your life.
