Chiropractic is based on the principle that your body has an incredible intelligence. The intelligence that healing comes from the inside out. This concept keeps our bodies running like a well-oiled machine. It is all controlled by your central nervous system made up of your brain and spinal cord. Through this network, messages are relayed to the almost 70 trillion cells in your body. These communications are sent via nerve transmissions and the endocrine system (chemical messengers).
When you cut your finger, your body sends out signals in order to stop the bleeding and begin the healing process. Many thousands of coordinations occur in the process leading to your body healing itself, from the inside out. Your body is always trying to stay at a level of homeostasis, or balance, through constant small tweaks to specific parts of the system. When that cut occurred, your immune system sent out defense cells in order to protect your body from outside invaders also known as germs. As the healing process concludes, the immune system slows down its production of defense cells.
This is all coordinated by the central nervous system. The transmission process happened over several weeks as that cut finally healed and became a scar. The communication between the cut and your brain was sent through the spinal cord. The spinal cord runs through the spine which is made up of 33 bones that together house and protect this extremely important communication line. When the bones in your spine become fixated through bad posture, stress, traumas, and improper movements, there is a weakening in our body’s communication line. We call this loss of communication a subluxation. As a Chiropractor, I find and remove these subluxations in your spine to allow your body to communicate as it was designed to function. Yes, you can live life with a subluxation. In the beginning they often don’t cause pain and can sometimes go unnoticed. Over time, however, they become more and more fixated decreasing more and more of your body’s communication. This decreases the power of the body’s natural ability to heal itself from the inside out.
An adjustment removes subluxations and restores optimal communication between your mind-body connection. Adjustments are a powerful tool to restore your body’s natural ability to perform as it was intended. The power that made the body heals the body. When you can tap into that power you will feel better, be happier, and enjoy life because you are better. Take responsibility of your body and step into a better you.
