True Correction vs. Temporary Relief
Most people visit a chiropractor because they are suffering from some sort of back or neck pain, and they typically will stop visiting once the pain is gone. This makes sense when we think about how we are used to treatments like medications that offer a quick fix and then stop after we have resolved the issue. However, most injuries and illnesses do not occur overnight, and it doesn’t stand to reason that they can be fixed immediately either. Misalignments of the spine that cause nerve interference and lead to a host of health issues can take months or even years to come about, and simple relief of one symptom doesn’t necessarily mean that the root cause is corrected. That is why Vitality Precision Chiropractic takes a different approach—one that seeks to correct any issues at their root, allowing for health to be sustained, rather than addressing individual symptoms in pursuit of temporary relief.
The “Sick Care” Model
Much of health care today is actually about sickness, not health. Almost all medicine is given in reaction to something that comes up, whether it is a pain or an illness. Because of this, it relies on medication that is meant to undo the damage that has already happened. While relief is important, this model of simply reacting does not address the root cause of any health issues and does not allow for proactive and preventative measures to be taken. Chiropractic care works very differently than this model. When you visit a Rochester Hills chiropractor, the focus is not on just reacting to a specific problem, but on your overall health and wellness. Dr. Thomas Madigan and Dr. Brendan Shanahan are passionate about helping you be proactive with your health, using chiropractic adjustments to correct any dysfunction and improve communication throughout the body. This model is focused on root causes and not quick fixes, meaning it leads to lifetime health and wellness.
Why Chiropractic Works
When visiting a chiropractor, you will likely experience relief of certain symptoms quickly and feel better. However, consistent chiropractic care is shown to not just lead to that relief, but to overall improvements in health. Visiting often can be a preventative tool that leads to fewer issues and fewer doctor visits over time.
At Vitality Precision chiropractic, we are dedicated to your long-term health and are not interested in quick fixes that don’t account for the root cause of your ailments. When you make your first appointment, Dr. Thomas Madigan or Dr. Brendan Shanahan will be able to do a full evaluation of your spine and offer an assessment of the next steps that make the most sense for you. The goal of the doctors will always be to help you reach optimal health through true correction rather than simply providing temporary relief.
