You have probable heard it before and maybe even said it before yourself; "Once you start seeing a chiropractor, you have to keep going forever." We NEVER hear this about the dentist, optometrist or other health care providers that a person sees year after year. So why do folks use this excuse, based on a falsehood, to forgo chiropractic care?
This myth, that once a person starts chiropractic care it must continue forever, is based on the medical model. If one takes a medical route, there is a prescription for drugs or surgery. The intent is that a single intervention makes the symptom go away, at which time the medicare care is complete. But is it?
Once a person starts exercising, when is it a good time to stop? Once a person starts eating health food, when is it a good time to stop? The answer to these questions is--Never"
The same is true with chiropractic. Once someone possesses a healthy spine and nerve system, when is it a good time to stop keeping it health? The obvious answer is-- Never!
