“In disease, first look to the spine”
This is because our spine houses and protects the MOST important system in our body, and that is of course the Nervous system.
The Nervous system is responsible for every single function and action that occurs in our body and is on duty 24/7, 365 days a year with no breaks. This is why Chiropractic holds the Nervous system in highest regard when looking at the functioning and healing of the body.
We MUST have a healthy, optimal functioning nervous system if we wish to have optimal health.
Through subtle adjustments to the spine, Chiropractors are able to treat a condition referred to as Vertebral Subluxation (a misalignment in the spine compromising nerve function), thus removing interference and stress on the nervous system allowing the body to function and heal correctly and optimally. This can be done in many different ways, but the goal is still the same.
Although Chiropractic is often sought by those suffering from musculoskeletal pain(i.e. Low back pain, neck pain, headaches, etc.), many conditions like asthma, high blood pressure, and dysmenorrhea also often improve under Chiropractic care.
“While other professions are concerned with changing the environment to the weakened body, Chiropractic is concerned with strengthening the body to suit the environment.”
And today’s environment is as stressful and toxic to the body as ever so we must take the approach of strengthening and fortifying our body as much as possible if we wish to live long, disease free lives.
For this reason, Chiropractic care is advisable for EVERY BODY, from “Womb to Tomb”. Chiropractic is about more than feeling better, it’s about living better!
