We have a simple message!
To understand chiropractic you need to understand three main concepts.
- Quality of Life
Chiropractors look at the structure of your body to assess how well it is functioning. When the body is functioning at its best, your quality of life will skyrocket!
Okay, so you are thinking that's too simple, right? In reality, that's what chiropractic is all about. As a chiropractor I am first and foremost worried about how well your body is functioning. Your nervous system (the brain, spinal cord, and nerves) controls every aspect of life. Your nervous system is constantly making millions of decisions and adjusting to life. Right now, your eyes are adjusting to the amount of light coming from the screen you are reading, your stomach is digesting your lunch with the perfect amount of enzymes while sorting nutrients from waste, and your skin is sensing how warm or cool the air is in order to turn your internal thermostat to the right temperature. That's not even scratching the surface. All of this information, and more, is being processed and controlled by the brain.
As life happens and we are bombarded by negative thoughts, traumas, or toxins, our nervous system can become compromised. We work primarily with the spine (which protects your nervous system) to assess areas that are no longer positioned correctly. When not in the proper position, the spine can decrease the ability of the nervous system to communicate accurately. We call this problem a subluxation. Nobody wants a cell phone with bad reception, so why would you want a body with bad reception to the brain?! The body is a self-healing, self-regulating masterpiece. In order to work properly, it needs to be sending information to and from the brain as close to interference-free as possible. When chiropractors find areas not functioning and moving properly we adjust them.
What does this mean for you?
When your body is subluxation free, moving properly, and adapting to life, you experience a better quality of life. That means less aches and pains, better natural immunity, more energy, and an overall better experience in life. What this really means is you are able to do things you want and love to do. Going for a hike, swimming with grandchildren, being able to take that road trip that previously would have been unbearable. Perhaps it is even underlying issues such as depression or infertility that can positively be affected by your body working more efficiently. You won't know until you try!
