The importance of Maintenance care:             

While to some, the terms preventive medicine, health promotion and wellness are used synonymously, the differences are important for chiropractors Says Dr Sal, preventive medicine is concerned with the prevention of disease.  Health promotion is broader and deals with dysfunction in addition to prevention of disease. Health promotion is built on a positive image of health, rather than a risk factor model. Wellness is a dynamic state of health in which an individual progresses toward a higher level of functioning, achieving an optimum balance between internal and external environments. Therapeutica emphasizes on this approach by addressing all those components.
