Chiropractic care is about finding the ROOT cause of your health problem through misalignments and movement abnormalities in the spine and pelvis (aka “subluxations”).
These subluxations can be responsible for pain, weakness, discomfort, lack of mobility or flexibility, migraines, fatigue, or inflammation. They can diminish your quality of life, and if left untreated, may be responsible for decreased health.
Each part of a person is intimately connected – physically, emotionally, chemically. What happens to one part of us affects all others. We cannot separate things into components. The underlying cause of subluxations lies with our daily lifestyles in which physical, chemical, or emotional stressors are either TOO much or TOO little.
Let’s break it down even more:
Physical Trauma: Such as accidents, injuries, or repetitive movements such as posture-related complaints. Often this is a result of repetitive one-sided overload in work or sports, a disbalance in hypermobility or lack of mobility, and/or improper lifting and bending techniques.
Chemical: Chemical stress arises from lifestyle habits such as smoking, medication, pesticides, pollution, and food sensitivities. People with gum (aka periodontal) diseases present a higher risk for systemic inflammation – How? Bacteria from your gums release toxins > the immune system gets overwhelmed and triggers inflammation throughout the body.
Emotional: Emotional stress that is caused by relationship, work pressure, financial concerns, cultural shock, loss, burn-out, etc.
With Chiropractic care, it is possible to locate these subluxations and with specific adjustments correct these areas of dysfunction. This in turn reduces the stress in your nervous system by enhancing your brain function. And when the brain functions better, it allows for the body to help itself better – healing from the inside out.
