What Is the Difference Between True Correction & Temporary Relief?

The world today is full of quick fixes and the constant need for immediate gratification. While some things are truly getting more effective and helpful in the way of providing instant satisfaction, it is more common that these quick fixes create more long-term problems. If you want to lose weight, rather than eating healthy foods and being more active, we turn to fad diets that promise we’ll lose 20 pounds a week by eating the way we already eat. Or when we have a medical issue that requires a healthier lifestyle to correct it, we instead choose medication or surgery to provide a “solution” that won’t sustain our health long-term.

Chiropractic care has a completely different approach to health, healing, and function. Here at Arbor Vitae Chiropractic, we belief in the true correction that comes from chiropractic care, as well as the long-term benefits that chiropractic care offers. We know you want relief from various ailments, chronic pain, and general discomfort, and we have seen chiropractic care provide all of those things to our practice members. But we also know that you want to live a long and full life, full of happiness and health, and we know that chiropractic plays a large role in that as well.

Proactive Health Care vs. Reactive Sick Care

The healthcare model today is hardly a model of health. Rather than providing you with opportunities to be proactive and preventative in your healthcare, today’s model is more of a reactive sick care model. You get sick, so you go to the doctor and you take a medication that is supposed to get rid of your symptoms. However, the root cause is not addressed, so while the symptoms are covered up and temporary relief is given, true correction is nowhere in sight.

Dr. Tom Niemela and the entire team at Arbor Vitae Chiropractic is passionate about helping you being proactive in your health. Chiropractic care helps your body to correct any dysfunction, improves communication between the central nervous system and the rest of the body, and brings about healing, health, and wellness in your entire body.

What Role Does Principled Chiropractic Play?

Principled chiropractic care focuses on the function of your body as a whole, which is rooted in the central nervous system. A primary part of the central nervous system is your spinal cord, which is housed in your spine and is responsible for transmitting messages to your entire body so that it can function properly. When a vertebra is misaligned even slightly, nerve communication is interrupted and dysfunction occurs throughout the body. Bentonville chiropractic Dr. Tom Niemela will adjust your spine to restore proper alignment, allowing your body to function optimally, bringing about true correction to any issue or pain you may be facing.

Not only can chiropractic care offer instant relief to a variety of issues, but since it treats misalignments of the spine, which are the root cause of dysfunction, you will also experience true correction and long-term health benefits. Dr. Tom Niemela and his team in Bentonville, AR would love to educate you more on the benefits of chiropractic and schedule a consultation for you soon!
