While I have amazing success with them, Chiropractic care is not about back pain, neck pain or even headaches; it is about nerves. Brains and nerves to be precise. The nervous system directly controls not only the muscles that help you move but also your immune system, all of your organs, even your thoughts and behaviors. You literally live your life through your nervous system. Chiropractors corrrect a type of interference in the communication of the nervous system called subluxation. Much like having a bad cell phone signal between your brain and your body Subluxation interferes with your ability to heal, regulate things like your blood pressure and cholesterol and even how you respond to stress.Chiropractors simply use the spine as tool to affect the nervous system much as you are using the keyboard and mouse of your computer to affect the "brain" of your computer, the CPU. This is why as a Pooler Chiropractor I can affect so much more than just pain.
Chiropractic care is one of the best investments you can make in your health. Chirorpactic is unique in that it offers true prevention. Medicine talks about prevention but the tools that they call prevention, pap smears, mammograms, prostate exams, etc. are really just early detection. Something has to already be wrong before they can offer any benefit.
Chiropractic care, on the other hand, can not only help with restoring any health you may have lost but also with helping the body to recognize problems sooner and better change with your changing environment easier so that health problems can be truly avoided, not just found earlier.
Years ago my first car was made inthe late 1970's. Back then the life expectancy of an automobile was 100,000 to 150,000 miles. The engines were all cast iron and heavy guage steel. Today they are more and more made from aluminum and plastic composites. yet today's cars last between 250,000 to 300,000 miles. One of the big reasons for this is that people are fully convinced in the value of prevention and maintenance sucha s oil changes and tire rotations. Shouldn't we expect that we could get even greater returns by caring for our bodies as well as, or better than, our cars?
The human body is self-healing and self-regulating with an inner intelligence
that knows perfectly what is best for your body at every moment. This
power, or innate intelligence maintains the body in existence, constantly
adapting it to the environment without any external aid or need for
it. The Innate Intelligence of the body communicates throught the
nervous system. Health is not absence of disease or merely the feeling
of well-being. Health is measured in terms of function; primarily
the function of the nervous system. Through the nervous system the
innate intelligence of the body controls and coordinates all organs
and structures of the body. A subluxation
is a disruption or interference to this communication.
To interfere with the control center is to interfere with health and
life. The chiropractic adjustment allows change and upgrades in the
nervous system ensuring optimal communication and function.
