When a smoke detector sets off an alarm, does disabling the alarm put out the fire that caused it to sound? The answer is no, but it will allow you to continue life as normal without an annoying alarm. That is until your house has burned down from the fire you ignored. What would have been the better reaction? Calling the fire department or extinguishing the flames seems logical, but wouldn't it have been great if you had taken steps to prevent the fire in the first place? This seemingly simple analogy is commonly used by chiropractic practitioners to explain the preventative, proactive approach chiropractors apply to healthcare in contrast to the popular medical method of covering up symptoms. A symptom, such as back pain or headaches, is only the alarm, it is not the root of the problem. Chiropractors are passionate about uncovering and adjusting the true source of health issues and treating the person as a whole, not just their associated symptoms, and it is the goal of every chiropractor to spread the concept of actively taking responsibility of your own health before taking a pill to silence your personal alarm. So before you ask what you can do to cover up a symptom, instead ask what caused it in the first place and the steps you can take to correct it. That is the chiropractic difference, and Kinetic Chiropractic Studio offers the chiropractic solution to those patients who seek both the true source of their problems and a holistic path to health and wellness.
