What is Chiropractic?
There is an INNATE intelligence within you that is absolutely incomprehensible. At conception, one cell is sparked to life and begins to divide, becoming over 40 trillion cells and creating an entire human being in just nine months. That spark is the entrance of an electrical energy, a BEING within your human, the YOU within you. And that inner light and potential did not abandon you at birth; it remains within you and is the very essence of life.
Forty-five miles of nerves grow to connect every cell, tissue, and organ with the energy flowing within you. This self-created and regulated, neuro-spinal system perceives, receives, & integrates your internal and external worlds. In a perfect world, you have the space and time to live at a pace that is innately right for you.But at the hectic speed of life that you experience, your ability to adapt can often be exceeded. When overstressed, you can store your experiences within your body, stalling your own process of healing and growth.
You were Innately designed to Heal, Grow, & Thrive. But you were not designed to live out of balance with your true nature and environment. Your neuro-spinal system communicates to you about internal balance, health, and changes needed through the language of symptoms. True health cannot be defined merely as the presence or absence of symptoms; because the majority that we make are not life threatening, but full of vital information.
You are pure potential. Chiropractic is a profession centered on clearing the blockages to that potential. The chiropractic adjustment can help you begin to integrate what is stored within your body. Chiropractic is about feeling more, not less: naturally, enhancing your ability to respond to symptoms; not just suppress them. Alignment is not just about bones, but the power flowing through them. The health of your spine and health in your life are intimately and completely connected
Through the science an art of chiropractic care, your brain and body become more connected. As a result, we express health and healing from the inside. Chiropractic care improves neurological function and quality of movement, can reduce pain,relieve stress, and improve adaptability. As people receive chiropractic care, their inner potential for health, healing, wellness, and well-being are unlocked. Since chiropractors care for the neurospinal system (brain, spinal cord, bones, muscles, joints, cartilage and tendons), people experience improvement in many areas of their life. As your potential is unleashed, anything is possible!
Conditions and Health Challenges
Chiropractic care helps people with varying conditions. People either visit a chiropractor for help with a health crisis or for wellness care. Crisis/Immersion care helps people to heal an immediate concern or chronic condition. Most of us live in a state of survival and disconnection. During immersion care, we focus on reconnecting the brain to the body and facilitating healing. Wellness care, or preventative health care, is regular care. People typically receive care once a week. Wellness care keeps your nerve system functioning optimally and your spine aligned. Health is a journey, not a singular destination. Wellness care is designed to facilitate your growth and evolution through life.
As with any area of health, the key is consistency. The first step is to detect any blockages in the neuro-spinal system and develop a care plan. Chiropractic care is a process of adjusting the body to higher levels of connection and alignment. Some of the common conditions which cause people to seek chiropractic care are: migraines, headaches, back pain, ear infections, asthma, allergies, ADD/ADHD, concussions, infertility and more. It can even improve the quality of your pregnancy!
