“The First Wealth is Health.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
What is the true value of chiropractic care?
Perhaps a better question is what is the true value of the results you hope to achieve with chiropractic care.
For a migraine sufferer, who even with costly medications is missing work frequently, avoiding time with friends, and suffering with pain regularly, the benefit of not having migraines is improved relationships with friends, better performance at work, and more energy and vitality. What is the value of that?
For a low back pain sufferer, he may be able to continue working and avoid lost wages. What is the value of that?
For someone with chronic fatigue and/or pain, it may mean having the energy to cook dinner after work and spend time with family instead of feeling drained and ready for the couch. What is the value of that?
For a child with ADD, he or she is getting the opportunity to focus better, achieve better grades, have higher self-esteem, and do more over his or her lifetime. What is the value of that?
For an adult with trouble focusing, it means enhanced work performance, maybe staying in job they were otherwise losing their ability to perform in. What is the value of that?
Sometimes people get stuck on the cost of care and forget to consider the more important question, “What is the cost of not getting care?” When you look at the long-term impacts of your health, you will guard it with care and find that the cost of not getting care far outweighs the cost of care.
