What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic encourages people to restore their health through natural means.
The focus of chiropractic is spinal health with a special emphasis on how spinal health affects the
nervous system and the overall health of the person.
What is the cause of lost spinal function?
There can be many causes of lost spinal function. It can be a singular cause or it can be something that has been going on for years. The most common
ones are trauma, poor posture, birth defects, being overweight, occupational hazards, chemical stressors like drugs (all kinds of drugs, to include
over-the-counter and prescriptions drugs), food without any nutrients (white sugar, white flour, processed foods) that deplete your muscles of their
resources causing tenderness and tightness also, emotional stressors like negative emotions of fear, hate, jealousy... that tighten your muscles and irritate
This leads to the most common symptoms that people have when their body is under stress, which are headaches, sinus and allergy conditions, fatigue,
achey joints (arthritis), sleep disturbances, moods swings, digestive problems and pain.
What do Chiropractors do?
Chiropractors work to restore spinal joint function through spinal adjustments. Restored spinal function has an over all affect on your total health, not
just your back. If you examine the design of your body, you will find those tissues that are least needed for survival are protected the least from the
environment. Your arms and legs are the most likely to be injured because they are the least protected by the body. Your ribs protect the organs;
therefore, the organs carry a higher priority in the body's ability to survive. However, the brain is totally encased in bone and spinal cord is surrounded
by bone, making these tissues the most protected tissues in the body. This implies that the brain, spinal cord and nerves are the most important tissues
in the body because the body protects them the most for it's survival.
Spinal misalignments and lost motion of spinal vertebra can affect the nervous system, which can affect the whole body. This explains how someone
can come into our office for neck pain, receive a spinal adjustment and their headaches improve or their sinus problems improve.
What are the benefits to Chiropractic care?
The brain, spinal cord and nerves control your body functions through mental impulses from the brain to your body tissues and organs. If there is any
interference in your spine to this mental-nerve impulse, there is lost function to that body part. Lost tissue/organ function leads to pain and suffering. The
benefits of chiropractic care are: decreased pain, increased spinal mobility, increased blood flow, relaxed muscles, restored energy and an increase in
your overall health potential from restored nerve flow.
