Proactive healthcare is not often practiced in the modern American healthcare system, but it should be.
Currently, we live in a reactive healthcare society where we often do not seek care until we are in severe pain or when it could be too late.
But, we can change that. We can choose to take a more proactive approach to our healthcare, and we will see the benefits if we adopt this model.
It can feel hard to make time for ourselves in a society that is built around a 24/7 work culture, but if you want to do the best at your job, be the best in your personal life, and feel the best, then the best way to do that is take control of your health.
Being proactive in your healthcare can help prevent unnecessary pain and illness.
Proactive health care is similar to preventive or maintenance care; it is the act of taking your health and well-being into your own hands before your health becomes a problem.
For example: making a chiropractic appointment before your pain becomes severe and hinders your daily life is one way to be proactive with your health.
Adopting a proactive healthcare lifestyle will:
● Reduce your risk of injury
● Reduce your risk of severe illness or disease
● Keep you healthy enough to live your life how you want too
Being proactive doesn’t mean that you need to dramatically change your lifestyle.
You may choose to start the workout program you have been saying you wanted to try or simply start with a small daily change like adding veggies to your meals or walking 10-15 mins per day.
Also, always make sure you have your next appointment scheduled at our practice. Invest in your health now and reap the benefits of a healthier lifestyle for years to come.
If you want to schedule the old fashioned way, give us a call at (417) 598-0080.
