Are You Promoting Health or Reacting to Sickness?

sneezing coldThe journey to better health begins with understanding the healthcare pyramid.

Tier 1: Treatment of Dis-ease

This tier is focused on treating disease or symptoms through conventional methods such as prescription drugs, surgery, and injections. This tier represents a reactive approach, often taken when health issues have been left unaddressed for too long.

Tier 2: Prevention of Dis-ease

The second tier shifts focus to the prevention of disease and symptoms. This proactive approach was highlighted during the COVID-19 pandemic, emphasizing hand washing, social distancing, and mask-wearing practices. This tier broadly encompasses daily health habits such as regular exercise, staying hydrated, taking supplements, and practicing good oral hygiene. These everyday actions are crucial in preventing health issues before they crop up.

Tier 3: Promotion of Health

At the pinnacle of the healthcare pyramid is the promotion of health, which goes beyond treatment and prevention. Dr. Ryan wants patients to understand that chiropractic is not a treatment or prevention; chiropractic is the promotion of health because relieving the stress off of the system helps the body function better.

With their expertise in physical health, chiropractors also recommend proper nutrition and stress management, which are integral to maintaining overall well-being.

“I believe health promotion should be the whole pyramid,” said Dr. Ryan.

Foster Long-Term Health With Chiropractic

Chiropractic care is pivotal in promoting long-term health from a young age. Starting from prenatal care to early childhood, the promotion of better health can lead to a significant decrease in chronic health issues.

“None of us want to be in pain or deal with chronic conditions that require thousands of dollars annually to take care of. But if we don’t want that for ourselves today, we should be thinking that we don’t want that for our children, grandchildren, and our grandchildren’s grandchildren,” said Dr. Ryan.

His advice: if you want to promote your health, get checked by a chiropractor. Dr. Ryan also encourages you to tell others your story of the results or improvements (whether big or small) you’ve gotten with chiropractic care. Let them know what you couldn’t do before starting to see a chiropractor and what you can now do more easily.

Leaving reviews on Google and social media and letting others know your chiropractic success story is also great!

Time to Fill Up Again?

When the gas in the tank of your car goes down, the little light comes on, indicating it’s time to fill up again. “Our symptoms are that little light that says, ‘Hey, you need to fill up again.’” said Dr. Ryan.
