Round Rock Health and Wellness offers patients throughout the Greater Austin, TX area preventative spine care and spine health services. Preventative spine care is very important in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. When our spine is misaligned, it can lead to disabling pain in our back and serious injury. The spine is made up of bones called vertebrae and between each of those is a cushion-like disk that supports the bones from grinding against one another (known as cartilage). This protective layering is what allows the spine to move freely. As we twist and bend the spine with our movements, oxygen and nutrients are supplied to the bones and disks. This movement is important in maintenance because the tissue that makes up the disks has no blood supply of its own. Therefore, when misalignments aren’t corrected, it can create a multitude of issues. Preventative care can help you stay healthy, avoid future spine-related health problems, as well as help prevent expensive medical treatments due to untreated misalignments.

About the Treatment

Treatments vary, but for preventative care, patients typically visit our Chiropractor once a month or so to maintain spine integrity. However, some patients come just a couple times a year, while others visit more frequently if they require additional care. During your initial assessment we will be able to educate you on practical lifestyle modifications and preventative programs that will improve the strength of your spine. Typically, the maintenance programs consist of exercises and diet modifications that can be performed at home. Exercises such as low-impact aerobics, such as walking and bicycling give the spine and neck a nice workout that’s not too harsh on your body. In addition, performing light weight training or yoga, increasing your water in-take, and improving other aspects of nutritional health will help keep the bones strong and healthy.

What to Expect

You can expect the chiropractor to have a comprehensive consultation to discuss your health and spine condition. Your chiropractor may also recommend some exercises and lifestyle modification to assist in routine care of your spine and overall health. Preventative care is all about taking routine action to maintain a healthy spine. Once a month visits is all it takes to loosen up any tension and minor misalignments in the spine and neck. This kind of care is truly at the discretion of the patient, but has low risk and high reward for what it can do for your body.
