Chiropractic care is all about unlocking your body’s natural healing abilities, unleashing your inner healer. Since its discovery in 1895, chiropractic has been a blessing to countless individuals worldwide.
So, what exactly is chiropractic, and how can a chiropractor assist you?
Chiropractors: Unleashing Your Inner Healer
Chiropractic is the world’s largest and most widely embraced natural healthcare system. Why is this the case?
Because chiropractors provide a distinctive service: they pinpoint and alleviate stress within your body that impacts your brain and spinal cord.
Your Body: Nature’s Most Potent Healer
Your body possesses an extraordinary capacity for healing—it stores more information than the most advanced mainframe computer. It has the incredible ability to learn, grow, and repair itself. This is made possible by your powerful central computer and an extensive communication network.
All the systems within your body—your cardiovascular, digestive, eliminative, immune, structural, hormonal, and more—must work harmoniously to enable you to function optimally. This state of balance empowers you with energy, happiness, strength, and joy, enabling you to pursue your dreams and aspirations.
The Central Computer and Its Communication System
Your central computer isn’t made of metal, silicon, or plastic; it’s primarily composed of water and fat, enclosed within a specialised, temperature-regulated casing.
Your brain functions as this central computer, while your nerve fibres act as billions of communication “wires.” Safeguarding this intricate system are your skull, spinal column, and body structure.
Connecting Your Brain and Body
Nerves extend from your brain and exit your skull as a tightly woven bundle of billions of nerves—your spinal cord. These nerves exit between the bones (vertebrae) of your spinal column, facilitating the exchange of messages between your brain and your body’s countless parts.
However, occasionally, this communication network encounters glitches, leading to garbled or distorted information transmission. This issue is what we call a subluxation. These subluxations most commonly stem from tiny distortions within your spine and body structure. This misalignment places stress on your nerves, causing irritation and impairment, resulting in physical and mental discomfort.
Chiropractors dedicate years to specialised training to identify and rectify these “glitches” or subluxations. After pinpointing them, chiropractors employ various highly specialised techniques to relieve nerve pressure and enhance body structure. This procedure is referred to as a chiropractic adjustment.
Unawareness of Subluxations
Often, people remain oblivious to the presence of subluxations within their bodies. Many nerves do not transmit pain signals, which means you may not be aware that certain areas of your body are under significant stress and experiencing damage. For example, you can sense when something happens to your skin (rich in sensory nerves), but not your liver (devoid of sensory nerves).
Improper Nerve Supply
Individuals may live with subluxations for years, experiencing no pain during this time. However, their bodies may weaken, and actual harm may occur to their spinal columns, nerves, and organs. This process is akin to tooth decay, where dental caries can exist for an extended period without pain, all the while causing the continued deterioration of the tooth (or teeth).
The Fortunate Ones
Those with neck or back pain, in a way, are fortunate. They recognise a problem in their spine and may wisely seek the expertise of a chiropractor. However, others may suffer from digestive issues, headaches, colds, menstrual cramps, depression, seizures, skin conditions, and various other problems without realising that subluxations could be at the root of their troubles. A chiropractic adjustment could potentially make a significant difference in their health.
Millions of Subluxations
Millions of individuals are unknowingly walking around with multiple subluxations within their bodies – a silent epidemic. These people feel no discomfort in their backs or necks, assuming their nerves are functioning properly and never seeking the care of a chiropractor. However, they are mistaken.
So, how can you determine if you have a subluxation? The answer is simple: consult a chiropractor and undergo an assessment and adjustment if necessary.
Just as you have your teeth, eyes, and hearing checked periodically, why not include your spine in this routine? It’s a quick and enjoyable process, and your entire nervous system – and consequently, your entire body – will express its gratitude.
A Guarantee of True Health
Many individuals bring their entire families to experience true health assurance, ensuring they are free from “silent” subluxations now to prevent future “noisy” illnesses. We encourage you to join the millions who have embraced chiropractic care as an integral part of their healthcare regimen. You and your family will undoubtedly find greater happiness and improved well-being as a result.
