We all like to think of our bodies as well maintained and efficient machines. Unfortunately, things can, and do, go wrong despite our best efforts. When this happens, our brains start to give us warning signs. These are signals that we should not ignore. Let’s take (by way of an example), a hitherto fit and healthy adult living in Charleston SC who believes “something” has gone wrong with their body. There are four steps that they should put into action.
Step 1 – Diagnosis
It is important to find out the root cause behind the problem and not simply try to relive its symptoms. Skilled practitioners need to be consulted. Often the root cause of a problem may lie in a different part of the body than that which is exhibiting the symptoms. The holistic approach offered by a fully trained chiropractor can often expose the root of the problem.
Step 2 – Relief Care
More often than not, the problem is related to pain or discomfort. For your own peace of mind and quick return to “normalcy”, some initial treatment to relive the symptoms should be instigated. However, this is unlikely to avoid future relapses.
Step 3 – Corrective Care
This is where the practitioner deals with the root(s) of the real problem. A chiropractor may have given you quick relief from your symptoms but your treatments should continue if reoccurrence is to be avoided.
Step 4 – Wellness Care For Charleston SC
This could be likened to the ongoing, preventative maintenance phase of your treatment. You started out believing yourself to be fit and healthy but, then, something disturbed the balance and you developed your initial symptoms. These were correctly diagnosed and dealt with before continuing on to correct the root cause. Following that, everything should be fine but, there is still one factor that should be dealt with.
Something caused you to develop that core problem that led to the symptoms that required you to undergo steps 1 thru 3. It might have been something unusual (a hard fall perhaps) or it might have been something quite small in nature that was a regular part of your lifestyle before. Whatever it was, you should be thinking about avoiding it happening again.
This is where your chiropractor can devise a life style pattern for you. It will cover things like diet and nutrition along with suitable exercise program(s) and might include regular backup treatments.
