Engineering Marvels and Chiropractic Care

What do Engineering Marvels Have in Common with Chiropractic Care?

What do engineering marvels have in common with chiropractic care? Recently I told you about the chiropractic care I am receiving for various symptoms. My adjustments are going well; I have noticed a difference in my posture and the fact that my right hip appears to be more flexible.

Words of Wisdom Comparing Engineering Marvels and Chiropractic Care

Here are more words of wisdom from Hazeldean Family Chiropractic Clinic:

Engineering Marvels

We stand in awe of man’s greatest technological achievements like the world’s highest tower, the fastest train, the largest cruise and cargo ships. Have you ever considered the multitude of engineering marvels that take place in your body? Take your circulatory system as an example; it is estimated to be 90,000 to 160,000 km (56,000 to 100,000 miles) in length and performs countless tasks!

-it circulates blood at about 5 liters (1.3 gallons) per minute and at 15 cm (6 inches) per second, providing the exact blood flow required by every organ and tissue to several hundred trillion cells.

-it repairs itself. You cut yourself and instantly a fibrin web forms over the wound, trapping red blood cells and sealing the wound

-the blood in an adult’s body contains about 30 trillion red blood cells

-your blood is like a conveyor belt, unloading its cargo as needed to every cell in the body

-your kidneys consist of over 100km (62 miles) of piping. Every 24 hours they separate 170 liters (45 gallons) of filtrate from the system.

Your whole body is an intelligent engineering marvel, designed with the innate ability to guide all function, healing, and creation of new cells!

The Engineering Marvels of our Body Systems

The circulatory system is just one of many systems in our bodies that function in amazingly marvelous (pun intended) and complex ways. That is if and when our bodies are healthy enough to enable these systems to work at peak performance. When we are not healthy, our systems cannot achieve their best performances, resulting in painful symptoms and even disease states I told you about previously.

If you are experiencing painful symptoms or diseases that have compromised your health, perhaps chiropractic care can reestablish your ailing body systems to their former peak performance.

In summary, there are no guarantees, but many times you have nothing to lose and lots to gain.

Chiropractic Care: Is it For You?

Fix and Prevent Mixed Messages to Your Nervous System

Recently I have been seeking chiropractic care for various (un)health(y) symptoms. I’ve shared with you here a recent scoliosis diagnosis, as well as TMJ and arthritic hip joints.

This is the time of year when my gardening season is winding down and I have more time to reflect, and I take the time to care for my physical well-being. With a recommendation from my son who is happy with the treatments he has been receiving there, I turned to Hazeldean Family Chiropractic.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help You?

We seek to find the cause and correct the root of the problem, not just mask the symptoms. Chiropractors are experienced in the function of the spine and nervous system. Our approach, focusing on your overall health, will allow you to function better with less pain and more enjoyment of life.

An added bonus of receiving their chiropractic care is a subscription to the blog that Hazeldean Family Chiropractic provides. As my own blog also features posts on health and wellness, I find the tidbits of advice in their blog very informative and relevant to my lifestyle.

Here is the great advice within the most recent email I received:

You have an amazing healing power in your brain and spinal cord. THOUGHTS (emotional stresses), TRAUMAS (physical stresses), and TOXINS (environmental stresses) can affect that healing power… the 3 T’s. In order to maximize your healing potential, we have to make sure that we address all these stresses…

Thoughts: If you have no control on the outcome of a situation, you must release it.

Traumas: Children slip and fall; it’s an unfortunate part of growing up and playing full-out! Keep an eye out for any recurring pain or pain that does not subside quickly. Remember, symptoms are an indication that something is not right.  Correcting it early will definitely help for a quicker recovery and to prevent any future problems.

Toxins: Studies have shown that diets which are high in carbohydrates have been linked to diseases like Alzheimer’s, macular degeneration, gout and cancer. Lowering your carbohydrate intake isn’t just good for your waistline, it can also have a direct beneficial effect on the prevention of malignant diseases.

Have any of you had experience with chiropractic care?

Control the Body with Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care relies on the fact that the nervous system is the master controller of the human body. The human body can heal itself when the brain within the nervous system communicates with the injured organs or tissues. It corrects problems by advising the injured areas to build new tissue.  However, this response can only happen if there is no interruption or interference in the flow of nerve impulses to the injured areas.  If there is an interruption or interference, the injured area cannot receive the message from the brain. You can control the body and the nervous system with chiropractic care.

How do Subluxations Control the Body?

A subluxation is an interruption in this flow of nerve impulses, caused by a misalignment of the spine due to injury, mistreatment, or improper care. These nerve impulses travel close to three hundred miles an hour. Tension in the body as the result of physical, emotional, or chemical stresses causes subluxations. These stresses are all stored the same way, one treated no different than the other.

When a subluxation lasts for a while, various symptoms occur within the patient. Symptoms depend on which part of the body is affected.  The energy in nerve impulses travels from the brain, down the spinal cord, dispersing through the vertebrae to all areas of the body.

Subluxation Symptoms

A subluxation can occur anywhere in the body that the nerves are located.  Sometimes patients experience pain, tingling, or numbness. Other times the patient appears to be pain-free but claims to tire quickly, be very susceptible to colds, or simply exhibits poor posture.

Common symptoms experienced when a subluxation is present include:

  • low energy
  • excessive fatigue
  • sciatica
  • fibromyalgia
  • indigestion and heartburn
  • neck or shoulder pain
  • back or knee pain
  • vertigo
  • decreased joint mobility
  • headaches, and more

Treating Subluxations

Chiropractors treat patients by correcting these subluxations or misalignments in the spine with gentle adjustments of the spine.  Results of chiropractic care are usually felt quickly and last longer, often permanently. Prescription or over-the-counter medication only provides temporary relief. These medications can also cause negative side effects, sometimes worse than the original injury or complaint.

Chiropractic Care Can Control the Body to Optimize Health

Good health should not relate to the absence of negative symptoms, but should instead be considered a state of physical, emotional, and mental well-being.  Chiropractors treat patients by recognizing the lifestyle changes necessary to improve overall better health, recommending these changes to provide clients with individual health goals.  They will also provide support, motivation, and inspiration on an ongoing basis.

Find a chiropractor in your neighbourhood by searching online. Visit websites that provide valuable educational information as well as their contact information.  Or, ask around. Many of your friends, family, or coworkers may have already done the homework for you and found a chiropractor they are comfortable with.

Hazeldean Family Chiropractic is in the Kanata area of Ottawa.
