The Brain (Nerve System) is the most important organ system of the body; controlling everything you think, say and do. It controls all other systems of your body; cardiovascular, respiratory, immune, digestive, and musculoskeletal systems to name a few. When Stress accumulates and overwhelms the Nerve System that’s when things that used to be easy become difficult. Like when you can’t sleep but you are tired, you can’t lose weight though you are dieting, or you are able to read but can’t concentrate…everything you do becomes “harder” than it should be.
As your spine is so closely linked to your nerve system and brain, the first signs of too much stress are often poor posture, mis-alignment, and damaged structure. Chiropractors call this Subluxation. Other signs include lost flexibility, decreased strength, low energy and advancing degenerative changes within the spine and skeletal system leading to frequent injuries, stiffness, and pain. These are all signs of nerve interference due to the accumulation of “stress.” Long term affects include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, stroke, and cancer.
Because of this understanding, our first goal is to provide Relief from your symptoms as soon as possible. We achieve this by working to correct the damaged structure or Subluxations with the Chiropractic Adjustment. This will begin to remove the interference and decrease the stress on your nerve system allowing your body to Repairitself as it would if you fell and skinned your knee or broke a bone.
Our next goal is to continue this process long enough for your body to Re-educate and correct the issues that led to your injuries and lost health in the first place. Muscle and soft tissue damage remain long after the original symptoms are gone. During this phase, you will be given exercises to speed this process along. Discontinuing care during this phase often leads to Re-injury.
And Finally, once your health is Restored, you’ll want to keep it that way!
Regular check-ups will allow us to add to your overall health and address problems before they become serious.
