Checkers vs. Chess
There's a vast difference between playing chess vs. playing checkers. In checkers, the best moves yield immediate results... a piece is jumped or a king is crowned. With chess however, the best moves aren't made for simple instant gratification, but well thought out for the benefits they will reap many moves ahead. Chiropractic shares a similar modus operandi.
Today, instant relief comes in the form of a pain relievers, muscle relaxers and cortisone shots. And yes, those 'moves' can bring instant gratification... but does a temporary patch contribute anything to your best health? Chiropractic care, on the other hand, makes moves (adjustments) that provide natural relief AND sets you up for improvements in other areas of your health down the road. One spinal move today sets up a cascade of positive physiological changes you'll experience in your body for years to come.
Winning health strategies aren't founded on quick fixes that make you feel comfortable in the moment, but on smart actions you take now that will contribute to your wellness in the future. Every chiropractic adjustment removes a piece of 'dis-ease' off the board - clearing a path to your desired health goals. When it comes to chiropractic, we don't think checkers... we think chess.
Never run out of something to say...
