Chiropractic: Making the Most of Health and Friends
By The Joint Chiropractic
Friends. We’re lucky to have them in our lives. Have you ever stopped to think about how wonderful friends really are? True friends support us, love us and stand by us through thick and thin. Whether we fall, sit idle or pursue our wildest dreams, friends are there cheering us on. Even the Bible (Proverbs 18:18 NLT) has something to say about it: “There are friends who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother.”
There are many types of “friend” relationships. Close friends, acquaintances, classmates, spouse’s friends, neighbors, colleagues … the list begins with best friend and goes on. One thing is for certain: To have friends, first we must be one. Simply put, likeability breeds likeability, empathy breeds empathy, and love breeds love. A good friendship possesses qualities such as deepness, direction and the ability to develop who we are as a person. Being a good friend takes commitment and the ability to remain confidential. Friendships reveal the soul, the real you. You can tell a lot about a person by the friends he or she associate with. The old saying, “Show me your friends and I will show you your future” stands as true today as the first day it was spoken. The kind of friend you are is often the kind of friend you will attract.
Feeling better, functioning better, playing better and communicating better impact how well we interact with others. How you feel, function, play and communicate isn’t just a coincidence; these are all dependent on good health. There are many things we can do to improve our health and friend relationships, but did you ever think about your spine being one of them?
The spine is your body’s command center, your first line of defense against everything. An aligned spine, one that is allowing your nervous system to communicate freely, provides the ability to respond positively to life’s unknown events. Doctors of Chiropractic focus on helping their patients achieve a properly functioning spine and nervous system. When spinal joints are functioning properly, your relationships reap the benefits.
- Less pain = better communication
- Better communication = better understanding
- Better understanding = better decisions
- Better decisions = deeper relationships
- Deeper relationships = a happier, more active lifestyle
The spine has an excellent musculoskeletal memory. Maintaining proper range of motion in the spine is paramount to controlling pain, promoting an active lifestyle and enabling you to enjoy a higher quality of life.
How Chiropractic Can Help
When one or more joints become restricted in the spine, it causes a lack of motion that can cause an interruption of the nerve communication from the brain to the body. This interruption can affect the cells, tissues and organs of the body many times inhibiting your performance. Licensed doctors of chiropractic (such as those at The Joint Chiropractic), referred to as DCs, apply a gentle, targeted movement to the restricted joints to improve motion of the body’s spinal column and extremities, thereby enhancing nerve function. This highly controlled procedure is known as a chiropractic adjustment.
As you can see, visiting a chiropractor is more than just having your back “cracked” or “popped.” Having a spine free from nerve interference is your first line of defense to whatever life may throw at you. A properly functioning spine may result in better decisions, better health, better experiences, better memories and better moments of laughter and joy. If life and happiness is important to you, then these things will be important to you as well.
If an improved social environment and quality of life is something you want, then make chiropractic a part of your wellness lifestyle and have your spine checked for joint dysfunctions. Chiropractic is widely recognized as one of the safest, drug-free, non-invasive forms of health care available. Whether suffering from pain or not, keeping your body functioning at its peak may be one of the best investments you will ever make if for no other reason than you’re more productive. More and more people are experiencing the benefits of routine chiropractic care. They are learning that chiropractic makes a much better vitamin than it does an aspirin; unlike medicine that masks a problem, chiropractic aims to fix the root cause of the problem. Discover how millions of Americans have not only found relief from pain, but also a pathway to wellness and a healthier, more active lifestyle by making chiropractic part of their healthy habit regimen.
