During our busy everyday lives we experience different forms of stress such as physical stress (accidents, falls, lifting heavy objects, etc.), emotional stress (relationships, financial, family, work, etc.), and chemical stress (processed foods and additives, prescription and social drugs, alcohol,water and air pollution, etc). Under stress, spinal vertebrae can lose their normal position and motion which may cause interference to the brain and body connection. Chiropractors call these spinal misalignments, subluxations. Disruption to the nerve system will inevitably result in some form of body dysfunction.
For over 122 years, Chiropractors have empowered people to understand that every function of the body is controlled and coordinated through the nerve system. Health comes from within. When the nerve system is clear from any interference and the communication from the brain to organs and tissues is 100%, the body will function normally.
Chiropractors focus on and place a great deal of significance on the healthy structure of the spine and the function of the nerve system. The Master Control Centre of the body is the nerve system (made up of the brain, spinal cord and nerves). The spinal bones serve not only to protect the delicate spinal cord but also provides the body with stability, movement and good posture. Now you can see why Chiropractors are concerned about making sure your spine is functioning optimally and maintained throughout life!
Chiropractic care is a health care approach based upon the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Optimal health is one of our most valuable possessions. We should value ourselves enough to strive for the highest level of health. When we take responsibility for the choices we make regarding health, we give ourselves the best opportunity to achieve all of our health goals.
