Your Chiropractor has All the Information You Need
By Donna Stark
Fair. That’s how I think I would rate my cooking skills. I mean, I’m not a star in the kitchen, but I can certainly scramble up some eggs and throw together a mean salad. And I think if I really applied myself, I could even say my cooking is "good” if I have a recipe to look at, that is. There was one time when I was trying to follow a recipe and didn’t realize it was missing some of the information until I was already into it. So I tried to keep going, I tried to figure out how to make it work, but it was a dismal failure. It was edible, but still, a failure nonetheless.
It reminds me of how the body responds when communications are limited. If your brain doesn’t receive all of the communications that it needs (like me with my recipe information), then what do you think the end result will be?
Is Your Body Struggling?
As you may know, joint restrictions in the spine prevent proper communication from the brain to the body. So imagine trying to figure out the missing information in my recipe or the rest of a phone number when you only receive the first five digits … kind of difficult, right? Well, it’s just as difficult for your body to respond properly when it doesn’t get all of the information it needs. When the brain can’t communicate with the body due to a lack of data, it struggles. It doesn’t function at an optimal level.
How Chiropractic Care Keeps the Information Running
Chiropractic care is a safe, effective, and all-natural form of treatment that pinpoints and corrects joint restrictions, especially those within the spinal column. These restrictions are often the source of deeper, underlying health issues and can cause the body tremendous amounts of pain and discomfort. Every cell, tissue, muscle, and organ is under the control of our nervous system, so when our nerves are irritated or compressed by a joint restriction, you can count on problems ensuing. Here are a few examples.
- Muscle tension and weakness
- Joint instability
- Poor posture
- Improper lung function (asthma)
- Digestive issues (reflux, stomach ulcer)
Since the nervous system plays such a vital role in how the body functions, it’s especially important to maintain its health. Chiropractic care removes the problematic joint restrictions by properly aligning the spine in a gentle and non-invasive manner. These adjustments enable the nervous system to function at an optimal level and allows natural healing to occur throughout the body.
