We hope you had a terrific summer! It’s hard to believe that autumn is just around the corner. With the new school year starting, we thought it would be a good idea to let everyone know that this fall we are committed to wellness. Understandably, summer is the time to unwind, take vacations and just relax. No one wants to think about all the work they have to do or what doctor appointments they need to make. That’s why we are telling you now.
September represents the month of starting again. Kids return to school, households return to normal once again, and unfortunately, workloads begin to pile up. With all these changes happening, your health needs to become a priority. This time of year, people have tendency to come down with colds and the flu due to the stress increase at work and at school. Those aches and pains that subsided over the summer months suddenly return. Stress takes its toll on the body in several ways. Immune systems become suppressed, headaches flair and fatigue sets in.
Our goal is to keep you healthy and pain-free during this season of change. Your health is as important to us as it is to you. Call us soon to set up a spinal checkup and remember we have affordable maintenance care programs to keep you and your family healthy all year long.
We look forward to seeing you this fall,
Dr. Eric Lambert & Staff
You’re a couple of weeks into your chiropractic care and you’re beginning to feel better already. You want to get back to your regular routine as soon as possible. There’s a lot to do around the house, you’ve got a family to take care of and you can’t wait to get back to exercising. We understand your urgency to start ‘living’ again. Problem is… the paint’s not quite dry yet.
It’s not uncommon to feel ‘done’ after a few adjustments. When the Innate, recuperative abilities of your body kick in, you might look and feel remarkably new… like a fresh coat of paint. But like a fresh coat of paint, looks can be deceiving. What seems completely dry (healed) on the surface, may still have a few tacky areas underneath. If you jump the gun and try to re-hang the fixtures, you might ruin the finish and have to start all over again.
Complete and thorough healing requires time. Even though you may feel like your old self after a few chiropractic sessions, it’s no green light to go back to your old activities. The stabilizing phase of care (where you feel so good you wonder why you’re still coming in) is where all the ‘paint curing’ happens. Give your body the time it needs to completely dry and you’ll be happier with the end results. Until next time.
