What Do Chiropractic Adjustments Do For You?
Probably the biggest misconception in the office revolves around the adjustment.
Are You Square To The World?
Your adjustments are special. They are more than just you 'feeling better."
I've studied health and I understand that the underlying cause of many health problems is from nervous system disturbances along your spine.
When I check all ages of people in my office, I often find their health problems show up as one or more spinal bones that are stuck and not moving correctly. I mean if the front end of your car is not aligned, something is going to 'wear out'.
Many people come to the office thinking that a chiropractic adjustment puts the wayward bone back into its proper position with the bones above and below it and they're fixed.
Your Nervous System Controls Everything In Your Body
Actually, bones are static structures, but they are alive. They move when acted upon by your muscles. And muscles only contract when commanded by your nervous system. Same with your organs.
That's why chiropractic is actually about the quality of your nervous system, not the condition of your spinal column.
I want you to remember, your body does the actual healing. I don't. Same thing with medical doctors. They may do surgery, but they have nothing to do with healing.
Healing comes from above down and inside out. The adjustment helps you heal from the inside out. I use everything I know about anatomy, physiology and spinal biomechanics to partner with your body's wisdom so you heal and stay healthy.
My real job is not to heal you. My real job is to help your body stay clear of interference. If we work together, you're going to be healthier. That's why repeated visits help retrain muscles and with time, your body can "right" itself.
