Chiropractic can change your life. When your body is working as intended, you are healthy and whole. The most important area of your body, your spine and nervous system remains largely ignored for the duration of most people's lives. The chiropractor makes sure your spine and nervous system is working at 100%. That makes a world of difference. Not only will your health change, you change.
Chiropractic is not only about back pain, neck pain, and headaches. It is not only about arthritis, tight muscles and posture. It is about optimal function. It is about balance within the body. It is about a functioning nervous system and a functioning body. It will lead to improved motion, immune function, brain function, hormone balance, posture. It will allow various symptoms to disappear while your body's balance and harmony are restored.
The nervous system can easily be irritated when the spine is unable to move properly. This can occur for many reasons.... injuries, muscle tightness, ligament damage, disc issues to name a few. This lack of movement is called a Vertebral Subluxation. This is what chiropractic focuses on. Removing the subluxations removes the interference within the nervous system and will allowing the body to function optimally once again.
Health and Wellness
Health is not merely the absence of disease. Health occurs when the body is functioning optimally. Signs and symptoms that many consider "normal" are in fact not. It is your body's way of letting you know that there is a problem. Wellness is about working on the multiple dimensions of health to achieve balance and synergy. Working on your physical, chemical and emotional health creates a balance, a harmony that can not be achieved while working on one area at a time. The synergy concept is that the whole is so much more than the sum of it's parts. You can accomplish a lot more when no aspect of your health is lagging behind.
Most people think that how they feel is an indicator of how healthy they are. It’s not true.
So, you have a fever. Obviously you are sick, maybe a cold or the flu. Does the fever have a purpose? Or is it just there to make you feel sick? A fever is a natural response. It is your body's way of killing bacteria or viral particles that are trying to invade it. Taking medications to lower the fever stops this natural defense and allows the infection to fester and become worse.
Vomiting, sneezing, coughing and even diarrhea may actually be signs that your body is working correctly: the definition of true health!
Your brain, spinal cord and all of your nerves control and regulate your body. Every cell, tissue, organ and system (even your immune system!) take orders from your nervous system.
Thus, true health is how well your nervous system is orchestrating the workings of your body. That’s why vertebral subluxations are so serious! Compromised brain-to-body or body-to-brain communications can be the underlying cause of a variety of health problems.
Many people with a spinal problem discover that other health problems resolve with chiropractic care. Patients often report that as their care progresses, they notice other positive changes in their health.
