I Thought It Would Go Away! ! !

Six dangerous words we hear everyday are, “I thought it would go away.”  Too often we have patients explain that they have been suffering from a particular pain for years. When asked why they wait so long to seek chiropractic care, they usually respond with “I though it would go away.”

If you are suffering from certain health problems, aches, or pains then you have to do something to make them better. Rather than going away, these problems usually get worse with each progression.  Ignoring the problems will almost always lead to further damage.  If left uncorrected too long, the damage may become irreparable.

Need some examples?

First, your car tires.  If your tires are out of alignment, you have to have them realigned.  At first you may only notice a slight shaking as you drive down the road.  The tires then begin to wear faster and faster.  This leads to a more noticeable shake, along with the car now starting to pull to one side or the other.  The longer it goes on uncorrected, the more noticeable it becomes.  What’s the end result? A possible blowout!

Second, let’s talk cavities.  Everyone’s favorite reason for the dentist.  When a cavity is forming there are no symptoms, but sugars are breaking down the tooth enamel.  If you don’t treat and fill the cavity, more decay takes place, and the end result is a tooth removal (extraction) or a root canal.  When your dentist says you need it filled to prevent all this, you don’t think twice about it.

In both examples, small problems lead to big problems.  In both examples, fixing the problem early is not only safer, but it’s also much, much less expensive and makes so much more sense.

If you are suffering with a problem, even a minor problem, do something now to fix it.  Don’t wait until the damage is done.   A chiropractic office is a great first stop.  If your problem is not something that can be helped through chiropractic care, we’ll send you to the appropriate health care professional. Our office has great working relationships with a number of different types of physicians, both primary care doctors and specialists.

The truth of the matter is that these chronic pain usually won’t go away, your body just gets used to it.  More than likely, it will get worse, and that’s the vivid truth of the matter. Call us today and get on the right path to better health.  (850)785-8311
