Maintaining good health is something we should be actively focused on every single day of our lives. That said, it sometimes feels as though our busy lives prevent us from taking the time and energy necessary to maintain optimum health. I would like to be able to play a role in helping people not only get beyond signiﬁcant acute physical injuries but achieve a more energetic, healthier lives. Everyday activities— stocking a shelf at work, sitting all day in a chair, gardening, sleeping in an odd position—may place new biomechanical strains on our bodies that challenge the health of our spine. As a chiropractic doctor, I can monitor the health and condition of your spine through periodic evaluations. In this way I am able to detect joint or soft
tissue dysfunctions even before they become symptomatic or cause a more complex health issue. In addition, maintenance care visits help patients improve general function, posture, athletic performance, as well as future injury prevention.
Now that I’m part of a larger clinic with more resources, I also feel better equipped to take on an even more active role in my patients’ healthcare. I’m still located in the same ofﬁce in the Weatherly building but now work with a team of naturopaths, acupuncturists, nutritionists, and massage therapists in the ofﬁces across the hall. For instance, if there is any question that your physical pain may not be strictly chiropractic related, we can do a blood draw taken right there instead of having you go to another medical facility.
The frequency of health maintenance appointments you need will be based on your speciﬁc health goals and past health history. At the very minimum coming in for a health check every six months could not only maintain your basic health but also prevent serious health issues.
