Chiropractic is the art, science, and philosophy of detecting and correcting subluxations that are interfering with your nervous system and your ability to heal properly.
Chiropractic is the largest, drug-less healing art in the world. People often think of it as care for back pain, neck pain, and headaches, but it is more than that. The health of your spine is intimately connected to your overall health. Your central nervous system is made up of your brain and spinal cord, which are essential to your health. They are encased inside of your skull and spinal column for protection. In between each of the vertebrae of your spinal cord are 31 pairs of nerve roots that connect your spinal cord to every single cell, tissue, and organ in your body.
Within your amazing body lies forty-five miles of nerves that connect these cells, tissues, and organs with this energy flowing within you. Your nervous system perceives and integrates your internal and external worlds. This elaborate network is constantly working to heal and regenerate cells in your body. Your red blood cells live about four months, and then you make new ones. Our skin, bones, and organs repair and regenerate at different rates. Your nervous system is the master controller of all hormonal, digestive, and immune functions in your body. This explains why so many patients see improvements in many aspects of health, above and beyond neck pain, back pain, and headaches. It is typical of patients who are receiving chiropractic adjustments to experience significant improvement in energy, stress management, allergies, digestion function, hormonal function, and overall better health.
All is well in this elaborate, amazing body you have unless something interferes with this process of sending and receiving impulses through your nervous system. What often happens to interfere with the normal functioning of the nervous system is a subluxation, or misalignment, of one or more vertebrae.
Subluxations are caused by overloading the system in one of the following ways:
1. Trauma, injuries, and impacts
2. Mental, physical or spiritual stress
3. Toxic stress from exposure to chemicals and toxins, including sugar.
Think of your spine and nervous system as an electrical breaker box in your home. When the system is overloaded, you blow a switch and it needs to be reset. The adjustment resets your nervous system so it can function as it is designed. In a perfect world, you have the space and time to live at a pace that is innately right for you. However, in today’s world, the hectic speed of life can exceed your ability to adapt. When overstressed, you store your experiences within your body, causing subluxations to interfere with your process of healing, growth, and repair. You were innately designed to heal, grow, and thrive. You were not designed to live out of balance with your true nature and environment.
Your nervous system communicates to you about internal balance, health, and changes needed through the language of symptoms. True health cannot be defined merely as the presence or absence of symptoms; because the majority of symptoms that we make are not life-threatening, but full of vital information.
Chiropractic is about feeling more, not less: naturally, enhancing your ability to respond to symptoms; not just suppress them. Normal alignment is not just about bones, but the power flowing through them. Through gentle, specific adjustments, millions have unleashed the healing power of the body. Chiropractic works with your Innate Intelligence, allowing your body to heal itself naturally.
You are pure potential. Chiropractic care can help you achieve that.
