There is a concern among family chiropractors that many families have given up on exercise programs. Busy parents start and stop various training programs, join gyms, and buy workout clothes, spending their hard-earned income on things they end up not using. Ultimately, the whole family loses out on the benefits of exercise.

Why is starting an exercise program so difficult? There are so many forms of exercise to choose from that fitting it into a busy schedule is overwhelming. There is weight-lifting, swimming, bicycling, running, Pilates, yoga, tennis, baseball, and the list goes on. The challenge is selecting the form of exercise that’s best for you and your family, and then having the knowledge to begin training in a way that it will be beneficial and not harmful.

With summer on the way, families are getting outside and starting some form of exercise. However, if you’ve been sitting on the couch all winter, it’s easy to hurt yourself. Doing too much too soon or doing the wrong type of exercise is a typical cause of injury. Those who really don’t want to exercise in the first place and get hurt after a few day or weeks into their new program will probably quit and not start again.

There are four basic chiropractic wellness levels which help to explain how the majority of patients relate to chiropractor treatment. Each patient’s unique history, health, age, and inherited family tendencies will determine how they actually respond to the treatment and the optimum level of wellness that can be achieved through chiropractic care.

Level 1: Spinal Correction – This is the most acute level of need and may take a longer period of time to achieve your optimum level of health. Chronic or acute subluxations have damaged your vertebrae, joints, nerves, discs, muscles, meninges, tendons and ligaments. A series of chiropractic treatments will be prescribed in order for the body to learn to heal itself.

Level 2: Spinal Healing  At this level, your body will start to hold adjustments for longer periods. However, you will still be subluxation-prone, and different areas may need to be adjusted for each visit. Again, a prescribed course of treatments will be prescribed less frequently.

There are many different reasons people seek chiropractic treatment. Some use a chiropractor's skills for spinal manipulation or aligning vertebrae for preventive care. Others want help managing serious pain conditions, such as scoliosis or whiplash. The goal of a chiropractor is to help you return to your optimum state of health, in other words, achieve health wholeness.

This may involve a regular preventive maintenance program that might range from a visit each week--with an adjustment done only if you need it--to a visit once every month. The number of treatments required depends on the nature of the condition, how long it has been present and the desired result of the treatment.
