First of all, you don't HAVE to keep coming for the rest of your life. As a trusted chiropractor in Greenville, SC, we do offer protection (wellness chiropractic) plans to everyone who has completed their corrective care, but we certainly do not require you to sign on to a protection plan. That being said, if you have invested the time and money to complete your corrective plan, wouldn't it make more sense to transition to a protection plan to maintain the positive changes that we have made instead of coming back to the office at some point down the road to go through an intensive corrective plan again? Think about it this way, would you pay for your child, or yourself, to have braces and then disregard the retainer after the braces are removed? While we're using dental analogies, once you start seeing a dentist do you have to keep going for the rest of your life? We have no problem going twice (or maybe once) a year to take care of our teeth, whether or not we have a specific dental problem, but how much more important is our spine and nervous system?
We may have gone into some detail here, but the reality of the conversation in our office is quite simple. The protection plan is recommended and offered but not required, end of conversation. At the end of the day, it is your health, your hard earned money, and your decision. Our goal is to meet you wherever you fall on the continuum of health and guide you along the way as you seek to improve your health.
