The Danger of Treating Symptoms

Dr. Krieger speaks on the inherent dangers of using symptoms to measure your health. In the same way that you take your car for routine maintenance to keep it in good condition and don't just wait for issues to arise, measuring your health on the presence of pain or other symptoms might lead to a delay in recognizing a health issue and will not get to the root of the problem. Visiting a doctor with a symptom, like high blood pressure for example, will result in a prescription medication that simply forces your blood pressure back into the acceptable target range without addressing the actual cause of your high blood pressure. With holistic and health-centered practices like chiropractic, we seek to determine the cause of the problem and normalize the body through functional nutrition and chiropractic care. In the example case, a chiropractic adjustment would normalize the body's blood pressure level whether it was high or even low without the need for prescription medications with unknown side effects. These types of primary care help the body to run normally, similar to how that routine oil change helps your car to run normally. Getting to the root of what your individual body needs is the key to measuring your health, don't just wait on a symptom to tell you if your body is functioning correctly.
