12. What is a family maintenance program?
A family maintenance program (see fees) is when an entire family visits a chiropractor regularly, not for the treatment of sickness, but to maintain the integrity of the nerve system by keeping the spine flexible, keeping the body in control of the movements of its own vertebrae so the body can adjust and re-adjust the positions of those vertebrae as it needs to.
You have to understand that the majority of vertebral subluxations, while they can do very serious damage to the functioning of the body, don’t produce any pain or symptoms. So, to go to a chiropractor just when you hurt is to ignore a problem until it sometimes reaches tragic proportions. Sometimes a vertebral subluxation can be there for 10, 20, or 30 years before any symptoms show up.
A family maintenance program is this idea of checking the spine of each member of the family on a regular basis at one set fee, a greatly reduced fee, in order to try and help prevent a lot of these problems from developing.
