Sick Care Vs. Health Care

Sick care is when we wait for symptoms to occur and then seek treatment. Health care is recognizing dysfunction and seeking treatment before symptoms occur. If you, a friend or a family member cannot perform daily activities anymore due to physical limitations than treatment in necessary. Do not wait for pain, the loss of the ability to function will present itself first.

For example:
1.) If you notice that it is harder to get up from a seated position
2.) If you have to sit because standing for too long is uncomfortable
3.) If you cannot perform exercises or lift things like you used to
4.) If you experience stiffness and lack of mobility
5.) If you do not defecate once per day or more than two times per day
6.) If you have to take antacids or experience bloating or gas with eating

These are a few examples of how to recognize poor function/failing health. Our office offers natural ways to prevent injuries, overcome injuries and preserve your health. Practice health care and not sick care by addressing these problems before the only options left are medication, injections and surgeries.

I offer free consultations to see if you are a good candidate for our therapies.
