The question often arises over and over again, should I still continue to come for regular adjustments even if I don't have pain? Well, I am glad you asked. I would personally agree with getting regular chiropractic adjustments because I have been receiving maintenance adjustments for seven years now. I have only had low back pain with occasional accidents. Pain should never be the controlling factor of why you return to get adjusted. Your nervous system is made up of over seventy-five miles of nerves and the nerve impulses can be as fast as three hundred and fifty miles per hour. Only 10% of your body registers pain and 90% controls functions like breathing, digesting, thinking and eliminating. In the last moment of the pressure on a nerve will you feel the pain, but well before that pressure your bodily functions will be affected.
Would you rather just feel good and be out of pain or be healthy. The first symptom of some who is having a heart attack is death. Prior to that heart attack, that person felt good. Again I cannot stress how important it is to have your nervous system functioning at 100%. Well Dr. Kim, how often do you check your family? I check and adjust my family about 1-2 times per week. Why would I do any less for you and your family?
I have my teeth checked three times a year. Auto mechanics have been tuning up my car every 3,000 miles. Why would you not want your nervous system to run at its optimum peak for the entire life? How long would your car last if you only tuned it up when it started smoking or the oil light came on?
When it comes to your health and nervous system, it should be your number one priority. As Dr. Godfroy and Ray Jesse have taught me, "Teeth and an engine can be replaced, but it can never be as good as the original."
Health is your responsibility and you do have a choice to keep your family's nervous system always operating at 100%. I hope to see your family for a regular tune-up.
I look forward to re-aligning you and your family.
