When Your Spine is 100 Percent, You Are Good to Go
By Sandy Schroeder
We all know what “good to go” means. We get up in the morning, go for a run, really talk with our family, and then head off for our day. Our mind, joints and muscles are up to the challenge.
Unfortunately, most of us know what “here’s another day” means too. A lot of black coffee, and deadline pressure, gets us out the door to struggle through the day.
The Power of the Spine
A magic 100 percent rating of your spine's health, or something close to it, could be a game changer. If you want to learn more, your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you could be a valuable resource.
Your chiropractor’s primary goal is to improve the health of your spine. He or she is seeking pain relief and wellness for you, without using pain medications or surgery.
Your chiropractor has good reason to look to the spine, when you consider what it does. The spine is the home for the nervous system that controls everything we do. From the moment you get up, until the last yawn at night, the spine is on duty. If your nervous system is not working well, you may notice your body is not performing as well. You may move and respond more slowly.
The nervous system is a huge network that connects your brain to every part of your body. Spinal nerves make contact through individual vertebrae in the spine to control every part of your body. Subluxations, which are dysfunctions, can happen at any point where there are restrictions. You may find it challenging to move as fast as you want to. Nerve pain may hit hard in your back, neck or legs.
Spinal Adjustments and Wellness
To correct dysfunctions, your chiropractor may use an adjustment, which is a gentle application of a targeted movement to improve motion of the body’s spinal column and extremities.
Pain relief, and a lot of new wellness “symptoms,” may appear. You may feel less stressed, and more energetic, as you look forward to the next meeting or dinner with friends. Some people notice improved digestion, better metabolism, or sounder sleep. As the spine becomes healthier, these are all wellness symptoms that may show up.
Some of my friends have compared this free feeling to that of letting a balloon go. They said they just felt like they were soaring.
