Feeling VS Function: What You Need to Know

I am Dr. Clayton Roach. I want to talk to you about one of the most important things you should know about your health. To me, chiropractic is a way of life. The question I ask people is what is their most important asset. Most patients tell me that it’s their health. What should be alarming or of concern is when asked to define what health is most people struggle. Most people end up saying that health is how you feel.

Health Not Based On Feeling Alone

However, health cannot be based on how you feel, especially if we think about the people we know in our lives. We all know of people who felt great but ended up being diagnosed with a devastating illness or disease, such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, or maybe even died of a heart attack. How does this happen, how can we prevent it from happening to ourselves?

Most importantly, health should be about function because unfortunately, by the time you feel symptoms you’ve already lost a considerable amount of function without even knowing it. Remember, the last symptom to appear is pain and the first symptom to go away is pain. Therefore, basing health on your pain is not the most accurate assessment of how your body is functioning. I feel it is my responsibility to educate my patients about what I know regarding health and that’s why we listen and we let our patients tell us their story.

Where have you been in this crazy health care/sick care system? What have you tried or been hesitant to try? I assess the range of motion, posture, check for curvatures of the spine, and assess every single vertebra in the spine for function. These are all objective, measurable ways to assess a person’s health function. We all want accurate outcomes, especially in a world where time is one of the hottest commodities!

Get Your Spine Checked

Everyone should have their spine checked the same way we check our teeth for decay or our eyes for healthy optic nerves. The spine is no different. It protects your entire nervous system, which controls every single part of your body. Our patients are moms, expecting moms, dads, teenagers, athletes, and seniors of all ages. Chiropractic gets to the root cause of the problem. My patients depend on chiropractic to get them to where they were meant to be and to live to their highest potential. I am very proud of what we have accomplished in our community.

We have touched thousands of lives in the ten years we have been in Bedford, NS, and many more times in ways that we didn’t even expect. I feel we were born to be healthy, live amazing lives, and have unbelievable experiences. Somehow we’ve been conditioned to think that it’s okay to have less and blame it on old age or bad genetics. You deserve to be healthy. Your health affects everything you do and everyone you know. We all deserve a better quality of life.
