WHEN WE ENCOUNTER STRESS, INJURIES, OR TRAUMA OUR BODY’S EITHER MOVES THROUGH IT, OR GETS STUCK IN IT. THIS LEADS TO TENSION, MISALIGNMENT, AND DYSFUNCTION…
These tension patterns cause the body to be pulled or twisted out of optimal shape, creating abnormal function and global dis-ease.
Our bodies then spend energy on holding our shape, trying to make up for the decreased function, and shifting back to a state of greater ease.
As these layers of stress, trauma, and injury stack up our life expression, our fulfillment, and our health suffer.
At INNATE LIFE CHIROPRACTIC we work with you to clear these tension patterns, to open and clear the channels of true healing.
To adapt to stress and trauma, our bodies subluxate in a defense posture. The structures of the body are pulled or twisted out of optimal shape.
Symptoms of distorted shape:
- Sore muscles
- Defensive posture; rounded and sore shoulders, neck pain, uneven hips
- Decreased flexibility
- Frozen shoulder
- Uneven legs
- Tight muscles
- Text neck
- Shallow breathing
- Abnormal skull shape/plagiocephaly
- Jaw clicking/popping
The shape, position, tension, and tone of your spine determines the shape, position, tensions, and tone of your life.
When the functions of body become stuck in a subluxated pattern they become uncoordinated, abnormal and inappropriate.
Symptoms of dysfunction:
- Ear infections
- Frequent cold/flus
- Abnormal joint motion
- Low heart rate variability
- Menstrual pain, dysmennorhea, amennorhea
- Erectile dysfunction
- Acid reflux
- Thyroid dysfunction
We get sick because of something inside going wrong. We get well because of something inside going right.
-BJ Palmer D.C.
When subluxations are present, a global disharmony and a lack of ease will cause us to express less of our innate potential.
- Lack of energy
- Overall vitality
- Anxiety, depression, bipolar, ocd
- Constant state of overwhelm
- Autoimmune disease
- Chronic diseases
- Chronic inflammation
- Failure to thrive
- Feeling stuck or out of place
- No sense of purpose or drive
- Feeling disconnected
The irony is that we attempt to disown our difficult stories to appear more whole or more acceptable, but our wholeness – even our wholeheartedness – actually depends on the integration of all of our experiences, including the falls.
