Chiropractic Is Your Health Insurance

Chiropractic is more than just pain relief therapy.  Chiropractic is a health system that relies on the body’s ability to heal itself.  It is also a lifestyle choice.  You see your nervous system controls every cell, tissue, and organ in the human body.  Messages or signals are constantly being sent from your brain through the spinal cord then to peripheral nerves to your muscles, organs down to a single hair follicle.  If these signals are disrupted or interfered with then that end-organ can’t understand the signal correctly.  Thus whatever is at the end of that particular nerve isn’t going to function at its optimum potential.  You see your body is self-healing and self-regulating as long as communication between the systems occurs. You don’t have to tell your body when to take a breath of air, you don’t have to tell your stomach to digest the food you ate, or even when to have a bowel movement.   The body does these things automatically.  These processes are all ran by the nervous system.  When the sperm and the egg met and began to form you the first system to develop was the nervous system.  From your developing spinal cord nerves were sent out and your organs formed from them.  

The World Health Organization defines health as optimum physical, mental and social well-being.  Not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.  In other words, is your body functioning at it’s optimal physical, emotional and mental capacity?  If not then you are not in a state of health by their definition.  In order to achieve this then the system running the body must be working at its optimum capacity.  That is the nervous system.  As a Chiropractor, my goal is to remove nerve pressure in the body so that it can function at its maximum potential.  When the joints of the spine get out of alignment it is called a subluxation.  Only a Doctor of Chiropractic is trained to diagnose and treat subluxation.  These subluxations can occur with any joint in the body.  Stress creates these subluxations through physical, chemical and emotional stresses.  When it comes to the spine and subluxations it can potentially affect your health because of possible nerve pressure created.

Every day in my office I correct spinal subluxations with an adjustment to the spine.  This is done with a specific instrument or my hands.  Years of education and training is required to do this correctly.  A chiropractic adjustment is not just “popping your back”.  It is a precise correction to a joint to correct misalignment or subluxation.  Over the years I have seen patients have relief from pain, numbness, burning, weakness and tingling sensations.  I have also seen organ function improve dramatically.  Everything from incontinence of the bladder, erectile dysfunction, menstrual cramps, fainting and dizziness, colicky infants and more.  You see when the Chiropractor aligns your spine then you feel fine because the nervous system knows what to do.  So by seeing a chiropractor regularly then you keep your body functioning normally.  This in turns helps prevent disorders in the systems of the body.
