What Do Symptoms Really Mean? Part I: Spinal & Musculoskeletal Disorders

Webster’s Dictionary defines the word “symptom” as “subjective evidence of disease or physical disturbance” or “something that indicates the existence of something else.”

However, modern culture has strayed from this definition, instead regarding symptoms as the first stage of illness.  This common misconception results in a “disease-focused” attitude toward healthcare, rather than a “prevention-focused” approach that promotes wellness.

Chiropractors and other holistically minded professionals uphold the opposite point of view:  symptoms are often the final mark of infirmity.

Like anything else, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure when it comes to vertebral subluxations.  That’s why your doctor at Chiropractic for Life focuses on preventing spinal disorders before the onset of symptoms.  This is accomplished through regular chiropractic checkups involving examinations to detect vertebral subluxations in their earliest stages, before they wreak havoc on the spine and body.

This chiropractic office challenges patients to shift their way of thinking about symptoms.  Focus on prevention by keeping regular chiropractic wellness checkups.  If you haven’t had a chiropractic checkup recently, commit to taking charge of your health and schedule one today — for yourself and everyone else in your family!Dr. Barbara Smith
