Chiropractic Care Is Most Effective with Time and Repetition

Think of all the things you love to do in life.  Most of them are going to require time and repetition to excel.  For example, learning to make a jump shot in basketball requires time and repetition in practice to perfect.  It requires training the body to learn the exact motions that bring about success.  If you love to draw or paint, again, this requires devoting time and repetition in order to train your brain how to create art with precision and accuracy. This concept is applicable to all areas of your life, and it applies to chiropractic care and complete healing as well. The body also requires time and repetition to create good spinal form and for the central nervous system to function optimally. A visit to a Bentonville chiropractor can improve spinal health, but continual chiropractic care ensures you get the most of the amazing health benefits that chiropractic care has to offer.

How Does It Work?

Our bodies become accustomed to what they are used to, meaning that if the spine is used to being in a certain position, it will remain in that position until forced to do otherwise.  It is only with time and repetition that we can retrain the spine to stay in proper alignment and create new and healthier connections between the brain and the rest of the body through the spinal cord.  Spinal misalignments wreak havoc on the function of the central nervous system.  One chiropractic adjustment may help for a bit, but over time, the spine will move out of alignment once again because that is what it is used to.  But just like every time you practice a new skill and it builds upon each previous time, each chiropractic adjustment from Bentonville chiropractor Dr. Tom Niemela is working toward creating proper spinal alignment for better and healthier spinal alignment.  The more we improve our spinal health, the more our overall health and wellness will improve, too.

Regular Visits Are Most Effective

The more often we practice a skill, the faster we are likely to learn and improve upon this skill.  In the same way, the more often we go to our chiropractic visits with Dr. Niemela of Arbor Vitae Chiropractic, the faster the body is able to remember what it should be doing and the longer it is able to hold the adjustments for improved spinal alignment.  Large gaps between adjustments can have adverse effects, so it is important to abide by the care plan assigned to you based on Dr. Niemela’s recommendations. Regular visits ensure that the body is learning and readjusting as needed so that proper spinal alignment becomes the new habit.  With time and repetition, the body will begin to increase its ability to selfheal and nerve communication between the body’s systems will drastically improve so that you will begin to experience optimal health and function.
