A to Z of Chiropractic: H is for HEALTH

H is for Health

The World Health Organisation defines Health as:

A state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity

As Chiropractors we strongly believe in this statement and strive for all our patients to be in the best possible health.

People who have not experienced Chiropractic treatment would often ask a Chiropractic patient why they are still going for treatment even though their symptoms had resolved.

The answer they give is that Chiropractic helps them to remain healthy, that they are continuing treatment to prevent spinal health problems.

In our view everyone should have Chiropractic treatment – just like most people visit the dentist. Many of us go to the dentist each year even though we have no problems or pain. We go to identify possible problems before any pain arises.
