Do you recommend wellness/maintenance care? 

Do you have evidence to support the clinical efficacy and necessity for your wellness/maintenance care? 

Did you know there are some Chiropractic organizations and schools that teach students and doctors that according to the research there is no proof for on-going wellness/maintenance care?
Here’s a study (one of many) proving the efficacy and value of wellness care so you’re ever challenged by a friend or peer…you have the proof!
8 Major Points of the Study:
*In animal studies, fixation of facet joints for 4-8 weeks causes degenerative changes and osteophyte formation of the articular surfaces with facet articular surface degeneration beginning at less than 1 week.
*Facet joint fixation resulted in synovial fibrotic adhesions that “progressed to mild adhesions in 4 weeks, moderate adhesions in 8 weeks, and severe adhesions after 12 weeks.
*In humans, it can be hypothesized that there is a period where the adhesions are forming WITHOUT CLINICAL SYMPTOMS. This would support the common weekly or monthly spinal adjustment despite the presence of symptoms.
*Four weeks of joint immobilization has been found to cause a time-dependent loss of neurons that become progressively worse thereafter.
*Joint immobilization has also been shown to cause muscle weaknessatrophy, and fatty infiltration and deposition into the muscle.
*It is demonstrated that the spinal adjustment gaps the facet joints which may break up adhesions, preventing the fibrotic or degenerative process to continue.
*There may be a possibility of reversal of the neuronal degeneration and muscular weakness through adjustments and remobilization of the joint.
*Due to the neurological and bio-mechanical consequences of manipulative therapy, it is both logical and scientifically accurate that monthly spinal adjustive care prevents the progression of adhesion formation, joint degeneration, neuronal changes, and changes in muscular strength and recruitment.

The public deserves to hear the truth about what’s possible for them with Chiropractic! Cardiologists don’t tell their patients to only come back when they feel the massive chest pain or radiating left arm pain. Many heart surgeries are done without the patient ever having a symptom because there’s more to the story with heart health than just pain or symptoms. And the same applies to the spine and nervous system…it’s much more than pain or symptoms!
