What is Health Care?

By Zach Chudy Waukesha Chiropractor, Sep 11 2014 09:03PM


What is Health Care?


In America, what we call health care is actually "sick care" or "crisis care".


We are taught to seek treatment only when we are ill or have been in pain for a while - not for minor irritations or when we feel fine. "Health care" is symptom-based since medications are designed to stop the symptom, not the cause. Medications sometimes even wind up creating additional symptoms that require further medications and so the cycle continues.


Chiropractic is meant to work as true health care, not chasing symptoms but rather going after the cause of the problem. Chiropractors restore proper nerve function from the brain down through the spine and out to every part of the body, including the cells and immune system. This is described as an inside-out philosophy, whereas medication is an outside-in philosophy in that it adds something to your body.


Chiropractors work to remove "subluxations" (or spinal misalignments caused by physical, emotional, and chemical stresses) which helps to restore proper nerve flow. This allows your body to heal itself, function optimally, and adapt to what is going on around you.

Even a normal day contains enough stresses to cause subluxations, so even though you may not have any pain, your body is constantly adapting to these stresses. Nerve flow is consequently cut off or disrupted in varying degrees, which prevents your body from functioning at its highest level.


Coming in and getting checked out while you are pain-free is the best thing you can do to prevent pain (along with walking and other home exercises). Learn to treat and react to the causes of pain (instead of pain itself) and watch as the quality of your life greatly improves.


I personally make sure I get adjusted at least once per week. This might seem unreasonable and extreme for patients to do, but we offer a wellness program (a flat monthly rate for unlimited adjustments) to make this an affordable part of your personalized health care plan. Ask our waukesha chiorpractors about joining our wellness program to treat the causes and not the symptoms.
