As hospitals have been over taken by the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic those with any other issues are thinking twice about going to the hospital or ER at all. Not only do they not wish to potentially be infected by those patients there with COVID, the staff in some locations has been reduced or let go leaving other medical care lacking.
Health care costs have skyrocketed. The average trip to the ER these days ranges from $3,000 to $5,000 and that is pretty much diagnostic only. Treatment only rendered in emergency circumstances otherwise you are told to follow up with either your primary or a specialist. This is WITH insurance. If you are paying cash it can go even higher.
While broken bones, cuts, scrapes, and burns of course cannot be planned for or avoided, nor can sudden things like an appendix burst or gallbladder rupture, the best course of action for all of us is to choose to be very proactive in our approach to health choosing to look at the body as a whole and care for it rather than wait for the onset of symptoms and treat just the symptoms.
Masking symptoms can make you feel better, but it won’t help the cause. To fix the cause of any disease or illness you have to find the root cause and make corrections. The further along you are into the symptoms the more correction and time it often takes to get back on course.
One of the best preemptive health care modalities is chiropractic. Chiropractic focuses on the spine and correction of subluxations (misalignments). Because the spine houses your nervous system inside of the spinal column it is vital for it to be in alignment. Each nerve is a pathway of communication outwards to every organ in the body including the brain.
When your spine becomes misaligned it can pinch off nerves hindering proper electrical signal. Do this long enough and the cut off organ begins not to work so well. Left in that state this is one way that disease can creep in.
Treating via chiropractic is a relatively inexpensive form of medical treatment. It is often covered by many insurance policies so be sure to check your coverage. Waiting and allowing your body to fall into disrepair can be extremely expensive as well as life alteringly painful and or debilitating.
