I’m forever reminded “…don’t let the gas gauge get to E.” Fill up when it hits a quarter left because you don’t want to run out of fuel when you need it the most – like when on the highway with a car full of kids!
Likewise, you don’t want to let your “Chiropractic gas needle” get to E before you come in for an adjustment. Some patients feel they can go several weeks or months without an adjustment because they’re cruising along, just feeling fine. Unfortunately, symptoms are the last thing to who up so 9 times out of 10, the clients fail to gauge their adjustments properly show up with some ache or pain as a reminder they’ve waited too long. And that’s not how maintenance works.
Maintaining a healthy spine is a proactive act… something you do regularly not based on how you feel, but based on what you need to stay on the road of life. The next time you wait too long for your next adjustment and experience the hurt, consider filling your chiropractic tank way before it gets seriously low again.
