You want to stay well but not have to mortgage your house in order to pay for treatment. This is about keeping healthy
by managing your problem in a sensible and morally ethical way. That's
what Chiropractic Help is about. In fact, it's about saving you a heap of money; and pain too.
Unfortunately much of health care today is directed at big profits for doctors, and that includes some chiropractors, rather than what is for your ultimate good.
I read recently of a colleague who asked for a patient's file from a neighbouring DC with whom the patient was less than happy. That happens to all of us, by the way. Spines are so unique that one chiropractor's methods may be more appropriate for your problem than another's. There's nothing intrinsically wrong with changing horses. The response: "You're stealing from my children's college fund." Unbelievable.
If you have the slightest sense that your medical doctor, surgeon, chiropractor or dentist is more interested in your money than you, then my advice is that you move on, and the sooner the better.
But good health care is directed not only at helping you 'get well' when you are sick, but also to 'stay well' when you are outwardly healthy.
That means that periodically you will get VERY ANGRY with your doctor when s/he wants to speak about STAYWELL WHOLE HEALTH INFORMATION MANAGEMENT! That is a sign that s/he cares enough to confront you occasionally about habits that are detrimental to your well being.
If s/he doesn't, then they have probably written you off as a hopeless case, or are just too afraid of losing a patient. I personally am in the happy position of having more than enough patients, so if I lose a few - and I do - because I badger them about their weight, or smoking, or lack of exercise or eating a black and white diet ... then it doesn't hurt me personally. I figure if I can save only 10% from the misery that's coming, then it's worth the effort.
Your doctor confronting you about your weight? Be pleased! He is only trying to save you from a lot of misery. And cares. Free Weight loss programs …
So the good doctor is always interested in a staywell whole health information management program. Take holidays, especially where you can enjoy a good walk.
When as a very young Chiropractor, a favourite patient in the prime of life suddenly died, simply because I didn't have the balls to confront him about his weight, I made the decision to be a Whole Health doctor. It's hard I can assure you, so when your doctor talks about something you have no desire to discuss, know that S/HE CARES! They're not doing it for their benefit.
That means, inter alia, what you eat. Have you read our Healthy Living Tips …?
Humus, or hummus, made from Chickpeas (aka Garbanzo beans) makes a wonderful healthy delicious dip to go with your Olive Garden Salad, and on your sandwiches.
Good health care - Staywell Whole Health Information Management - is also about Information, as much as anything else. Hence CHIROPRACTIC HELP. What are your options, what will make a difference, what is scientifically proven to work, what is cost effective ...? That's what this website is all about.
Chronic conditions require management. That means STAYWELL WHOLE HEALTH INFORMATION MANAGEMENT. It applies to chronic back pain, just as much as it has to do with diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, depression and tooth decay.
The good medical doctor will require you to come under management if you have high blood pressure. It's very important. Prevention of stroke and heart attack is obviously far better than an attempt at a cure after the disaster.
The good dentist will invite you to come to have your teeth cleaned, gums and teeth checked a couple times a year. It makes good sense, and in a sense s/he is doing himself out of good business. He could make far more money out of you by allowing your teeth to decay, and then give you a crown.
So too, the good Chiropractor, concerned about Staywell Whole Health Information Management, will want to manage your condition correctly. In an ethically and morally defensible way.
I would propose two models to you, if you have a chronic condition, either:
There is now so much evidence proving that joint fixations lead to arthritis as the joint is starved of oxygen and nutrients, so an occasional adjustment of any joints that have a tendency to chronically give trouble, and that should include the
I personally think this applies mainly to chronic conditions. If you had a stiff neck, once off, had chiropractic treatment, and it went over, then I from my Chiropractic Help perspective don't demand that patients come back for ever and aye.
How often? Well, that depends on a host of factors, and you will have to trust your chiropractor's judgement; unless you have the feeling that he is just trying to squeeze more money out of you for his son's college fund.
Most of my chronic patients come for their occasional regular adjustment every six to twelve weeks. A few once a month, mostly the very elderly, and some, especially children, only once or twice a year. Staywell Whole Health Information Management.
I call it STAYWELL WHOLE HEALTH INFORMATION MANAGEMENT. It's for your benefit, not mine. Any benefit to me is incidental.
2. If it's not broken, don't fix it. But don't wait too long ...
If you have a few twinges, or a headache, or a snivel, generally you don't need to rush off to your doctor or chiropractor. Do the sensible thing.
But, if you know you've done a mischief to your back, and particularly if you have pain or tingling in the leg or arm, then the sooner you get to your chiropractor the better. Don't allow it to become chronic. Research proves that once you've had neck pain for six months, it will probably never go completely away, no matter what treatment you have.
Hence, STAYWELL WHOLE HEALTH INFORMATION MANAGEMENT is an important in all of your health, not just your spine. Diabetes, heart and kidney disease, cholesterol ... manage your health properly and there's a good chance you can reach a happy healthy eighty. More I can't promise!
