Routine MaintenanceThe problem with lifestyle-caused diseases is that the damage happens slowly over time, often without even a hint of a symptom, until it is too late.

We see this all the time. When the symptoms finally show up and we get the call, the most common refrain is, 'But I didn't do anything.' Sure, bending down to pick up the newspaper shouldn't reduce a grown man to tears. But the countless years of ignoring the nagging aches and pains did the damage. Bending over was merely the last straw.

Ironically, the same people who subscribe to the "don't-fix-it-if-it's-not-broken" philosophy will fuss over their lawns, baby their car with fresh oil and filter and religiously replace their smoke detector batteries. So, why is a simple, "Honey, I think you should go in for a checkup" met with a determined and unexplainable resistance!  We don't wait until our cars are on fire to change the oil, and we should not wait for a major problem to arise in our health before we finally do something about it.  Let's all make an effort to be proactive in our health!
