Patient Responsibilities

Patient Responsibilities

Here are some ways you can get faster relief and better results from your chiropractic care:

GET INVOLVED. Patients who get involved and assume personal responsibility for recovering their health, seem to get the best results.

KEEP YOUR APPOINTMENTS. The way to achieve the results millions of chiropractic patients have enjoyed is to keep your appointments.

STRENGTHEN YOUR SPINE. Your doctor may suggest specific exercises to help speed your recovery. These can help retrain muscles that support your spine.

LIFT WITH YOUR LEGS. Improper lifting can invite a relapse. Keep your back straight and the load close to your body as you lift with your legs.

AVOID EXTREME BENDING. Use caution when bending or working overhead. Avoid sudden twists and turns.

GET ADEQUATE REST. Proper rest is an important aspect of the healing process. Use a mattress that offers firm support, and avoid sleeping on your stomach.

WATCH YOUR DIET. During the healing process proper nutrition is more important than ever.

ASK QUESTIONS. Proper spinal hygiene is new for most people. The better you understand your condition, the faster your recovery.

REFER OTHERS. Share your chiropractic experience with others. Explain the relationship between proper spinal function and nervous system function-the key to health.
