What Do Your Car and Your Body Have in Common?

Everyone who owns a car knows that in order to keep it running well you need to perform regular maintenance.  Bringing your car in every 10,000 miles or so for a checkup is just common sense because over the course of driving your car wear and tear on its parts inevitably occur.


Usually when you bring it in there are a few minor things that need to be done.  An oil change, tire rotation and maybe a new set of breaks or other smaller part needs to be replaced.  But overall keeping up with your car’s maintenance keeps you from experiencing a major breakdown and needing to replace an engine or some other large part because, well you kept up with the regular care of your vehicle and all those larger problems were taken care of when they were still small problems.


Your body works in much the same way.  Over the course of our daily living we inevitable cause wear and tear on our joints, tendons, muscles and ligaments.  This can be from acute injuries or repetitive stress injuries but unless you are Super Man your daily activities cause wear and tear on your body.


Just like your vehicle your body needs regular maintenance to function at its best and to avoid and major mechanical issues.  You need proper sleep to allow the body to heal fully. You need good nutrition to provide the parts your body needs to heal and your spine needs regular chiropractic care to make sure the muscles are relaxed and the joints in the spine are moving properly.  When the joints are not moving like they should you feel stiffness.  When the muscles are achy and sore you feel pain.  These are two surefire indicators you are in need of a tune-up.


And just like your vehicle waiting too long to fix something after a warning light comes on usually means its takes longer, is more costly and is much more inconvenient for you to fix.  Don’t wait too long and allow minor problems to become big problems.  You can learn more about our office and how we can help you at arvoldchiro.com or call 715-246-7500 to schedule an appointment now.
