Health Care vs Sick Care…do you know the difference?
Chiropractic care is a preventative, all natural form of healthcare that addresses the root cause of health conditions or expressions of health. The goal of chiropractic care is to allow the nervous system to function properly by removing any interference
allowing your body to adapt to stress and other health issues. When interference is removed through chiropractic, the body can self-heal and self-regulate. This moves you towards true health and prevents problems from occurring again.
A sick care model looks at your body after you are already showing symptoms of sickness or disease. This model is for damage control in which the goal is to stop you from getting worse. The secondary goal is to make you feel better but not get to the cause or root of the problem. “Sick care” rarely focuses on moving you back towards health and preventing the problem from coming back which can cascade into greater dysfunction.
To sum it all up…in health or preventative care, the focus is on prevention and being proactive in promoting and supporting health. In sick care, the focus is on addressing the problem and being reactive to the disease or illness.
