A New Approach to Healthcare
In today’s world, we are under more stress than any other generation in history. Stress is the biggest contributor to disease in the United States. The brain, spinal cord and nerves make up the Central Nervous System and serve as Central Command for all bodily functions. Every cell, muscle and organ in your body requires proper nerve activity from the Central Nervous System. Interruptions in the communication between the brain and the body are like a bad phone connection. The messages are unclear and the brain and body become “confused” with the message. The body responds to this with dysfunction, disease and pain. Pain is often the last symptom to be expressed when the body is out of balance and the first symptom to resolve. Absence of pain does not indicate health. Today, it is more important than ever to keep your nervous system functioning at its optimal level.
Chiropractic seeks to remove the interference that is causing aberrant messages between the brain and the body. The interference can be caused by a vertebra (bone) in your spine losing it’s optimal position or becoming stuck. This is known as a subluxation. A subluxation can cause what is known as a “pinched nerve”, resulting in pain, tight muscles and aberrant function of organs and body systems. Toxins from foods and medications can cause interference in the form of inflammation. Many people seek chiropractic care for neck and back pain. But chiropractic may improve many health conditions. Chiropractic does not treat disease, it simply removes the interference and breaks the stress cycle so the body can express optimal health and well being.
