Why are we a Nation Plagued with CHRONIC health conditions?

2.23.2018 - Author: Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Spartanburg

In the United States today, we face an epidemic of chronic health conditions - from high blood pressure to diabetes. Despite rampant prescription of pharmaceuticals to treat these conditions, we continue to see numbers of chronic health cases rise.

Two large factors contribute to this trend:

✔️over-prescription of pharmaceuticals to manage symptoms instead of treating the cause
✔️lack of preventative health care to catch these conditions before they become a full-blown issue.
✔️Not only does this cost people thousands of dollars in doctor’s visits and prescriptions, but many of the pharmaceuticals carry their own adverse side effects. More drugs are prescribed to treat these side effects and the cycle continues.

Through prevention, many of these symptoms, conditions, and side effects could be avoided. However, while our current healthcare system is extremely skilled in crisis care, it lacks in preventing the long-term illnesses that plague the population today.

🙌AN ALTERNATIVE SOLUTION TO MANAGING LONG-TERM HEALTH🙌
Many Americans are pushing back on the over-prescription of drugs and are seeking alternative forms of medicine to manage their long-term health. Many looking for more natural ways to care for their health have turned to upper cervical care.

The body has an innate ability - the innate ability to heal itself. Our bodies naturally know how to function efficiently – and want to do just that – but that requires proper communication between the brain and the rest of the body.

By ensuring there are no roadblocks in the communication pathway, upper cervical care allows the body to function the way it was made to function. Ultimately, this can lead to almost-immediate relief of minor symptoms and improved long-term overall health.

Spend time doing a little research and you’ll find that we have a “Chronic Disease Day” and 81 million Americans are projected to have a chronic illness by 2020. Let that sink in. That’s enough people to fill an average sized baseball stadium 1,620 times.

We are doing something different here, please don’t get stuck in the trend, celebrating a fake holiday due to a possibly preventable condition.
