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.

Family Chiropractic Care

family chiropractic care

Holistic medicine is based on the scientific fact that the body has a natural ability to heal itself given the correct environment and lifestyle.  This is due to the fact that the neurological system controls every function of the human body.  Prevent and correct many chronic medical conditions with knowledge and simple lifestyle changes. Family chiropractic care can help with those lifestyle changes.

Identify Necessary Lifestyle Changes

A chiropractor can help identify these simple lifestyle changes and help achieve overall better health. They share knowledge and expertise as well as provide support, inspiration, and motivation.  They believe people are ultimately responsible for their own wellbeing and optimal health. Chiropractors provide members of their community with the chance and instructions to achieve their personal health goals.  They can provide education and personalized recommendations for individual health goals. Clients can then take control of their lives, living to their full potential.

What Symptoms do Chiropractors Treat?

Chronic symptoms and conditions treated by chiropractors include decreased hip mobility, headaches, neck and shoulder pain, heartburn and indigestion, ear ringing, fibromyalgia, vertigo, sciatica, as well as fatigue, and low energy.

From the brain, nerve impulses travel down the spinal cord and then branch out between the vertebrae to all areas of the body.  If the vertebrae cannot move properly due to injury or improper care, pressure is placed on the nerves causing pain. When this happens, all the potential energy carried by the nerve cannot reach the organs and tissues that it should.

Correct Chronic Symptoms with Treatment, not Drugs

Adjustments to the spine can re-align the vertebrae and relieve the pressure on the nerves. This permits increased flow of energy to the affected organs and tissues resulting in pain relief.

Chiropractic care can also correct the causes of many painful chronic symptoms and conditions. Corrective adjustments are made to neurological imbalances. When the underlying cause is corrected through chiropractic care, patients see results much faster and more consistently. Treatment with pain medication only provides temporary relief, and can aggravate conditions creating even more undesirable symptoms.

Family chiropractic care can help children and adults alike. Sports injuries, pregnancy issues, and even corporations trying to reduce time missed due to medical reasons are all examples. 

Finding Family Chiropractic Care

Find a chiropractor through their websites. These can provide valuable information, educational videos, and contact information. Some have blogs to communicate and share experiences with staff and fellow clients. Another way to find a chiropractor you are comfortable with is to request references from your friends and family.
