Some people are plagued by motion sickness - dizziness and nausea when in a moving vehicle. People who get "sea sick", "air sick", or "car sick" may be totally disabled by their symptoms, or they may just experience a mild queasiness. For someone prone to motion sickness, any additional source of dizziness and nausea can make travel a burden.

There are all sorts of influences encouraging people to blame all of their aches and pains on aging. While it is undeniable that the body does change with age, blaming all of your aches and pains on your age is not constructive or even realistic.
Think of pain as a smoke alarm. The alarm, if the batteries are kept up, doesn't go off because it's old. The pain "alarm" goes off because there's "smoke", which means there's fire. Most fires can be put out, or at least reduced to a smolder. Don't blame the age of the smoke alarm; take care of the fire.
Look around you the next time you're in the office. There are people of all ages coming in to have the interference or static removed from their nervous systems. They're all aging, as certainly as the earth is turning, even the toddlers. Their "static" is not strictly due to the amount of time they've spent on the planet - yours probably isn't either.
This is an extremely busy urban-suburban area, and very few of us have schedules that will brook many more additions. Regular chiropractic care will usually keep you as healthy and pain free as your genes, lifestyle and luck (not necessarily in that order) will allow. We understand your dismay and stress when, despite everyone's best efforts, you find yourself having an acute episode or flare-up of some kind. "I (we) don't have time for this!" Nevertheless, an acute episode calls for more frequent visits than usual, and skipping visits creates problems.
When we are helping you through a pain episode, please stick to the schedule recommended for you. We all know people who seem to have an entire drug store at home, because they never take the full course of medication. They only stay on track long enough to feel marginally functional, then they quit. They're always amazed to find that they've "still got it". By the same token, if you skip acute care visits and then reappear a month later complaining that you've "still got it", your body has had time to backslide.
Any visits scheduled for you at this office are scheduled with your specific health needs in mind. This includes factoring in the amount of travel necessary to get here, as well as respecting the time already needed to live your specific life. If you are thinking of skipping acute care visits due to time or economic concerns, please speak to us about them. We will always work with you, within reason. Our goal is the same as yours, to get you not just marginally functional, but really well again, as quickly as possible.
