Thus, committing to the long game supports our desire for a long life of good health.3 There can be gaps, of course. People are very busy and there may be stretches, even lasting months, when there just isn't time enough to do necessary exercise. The solution is to minimize these gaps as much as possible, make sure the gaps don't become the new routine, and re-engage in regular exercise as soon as feasible. Adherence to our long game strategy will help achieve across-the-board wins in the areas of health and well-being.
Regular chiropractic care is an important part of the long view regarding your family's health and well-being. Even though we engage in healthy lifestyle activities, events frequently occur that have a negative impact on our health. The events themselves may be not obvious, hidden from view as a result of originating in our day-to-day environment or seemingly harmless mechanical stresses as we bump into things, trip over a crack in the sidewalk, or pick up a laundry basket filled with clothes.
But these little insults often have a cumulative effect in causing spinal misalignments and nerve interference. We're not aware of the health effects of nerve interference at the beginning. Over time, nerve irritation that results from spinal misalignments may cause neck pain, back pain, and headaches, and even problems with the digestive, endocrine, and immune systems. Regular chiropractic care, as a consistent part of your family's routine, helps prevent a wide range of problems from getting started, and helps us get better faster from the problems that may have brought us to our chiropractor's office in the first place.
