Neck and back problems are just like tooth decay. The longer you wait to fix them, the harder (and more costly) it gets to repair them and the pain just keeps getting worse. Living with the certainty of another “my back’s out” all the time just doesn’t work for me. I need to be at my best possible health all the time. So I do back and neck stretches every day and visit Dr. Fuller every week and I haven’t been laid up with back pain in years. Routine maintenance, just like brushing my teeth and seeing the dentist. It’s a small price to pay for the reward of feeling good and being able to do what I want when I need to. And not worrying about the next time a neglected spine is going to scream for attention!
Dr. Fuller’s Note:
To keep your car running at peak performance, you continue wellness car care with oil changes, tuneups, and alignments, even though the car has no pain. The best time to bring your car to the mechanic is when it is running fine and you just need an oil change, not when the engine blows up. Saves you money, too.
To keep your teeth as long as, and as healthy as, you can, you continue wellness teeth care. You exercise your teeth daily with brushing and flossing, and have dental wellness checks, even though you don’t have teeth pain. The best time to go to the dentist is when you only need a cleaning, not when you need root canals and bridges and implants. Saves you money, too.
To keep your brain, body and spine running at peak performance, you continue with wellness Chiropractic care and daily spine stretches, even if you don’t have spine pain. The best time to have a chiropractic adjustment is when you feel great, not when your “back (or neck) goes out.” Saves you money, too.
Thank you Phil!
