Maintaining a healthy spine is a proactive act... something you do regularly not based on how you feel, but based on what you need to stay on the road of Life. The next time you wait too long for your next adjustment and encounter the hurt, consider filling your Chiropractic tank LONG before it gets seriously low again.
It's impossible to extinguish all the stress in your Life. Something negative in your outer environment will always be a danger to your internal one. The best you can do is to lessen the influence - and one great way is to keep your Nerve System strong and clear with regular chiropractic care to avoid getting burned.
As Chiropractors, we have sympathy for any discomfort you present with. But realize, while naming your 'tissue of pain' (diagnosis) may provide some peace of mind... detecting and correcting the cause (adjustment) will restore your health. For us, what hurts is not nearly as important as what's Subluxated.
D.D. Palmer, the Father of Chiropractic, recognized that repetitious physical, chemical and emotional stress can change the normal 'tone' within a person's Nerve System (a.k.a. Subluxation). This continual irritation can lead to poor physical, mental and emotional performance. The solution? Restore normal tone to the Nerve System with specific, Chiropractic adjustments and better health will naturally follow!
Adjustments to specific vertebral levels aren't just helpful for tight spines and sore joints. The neurotrophic (nerve nourishing) effects of proper spinal alignment has a serious effect on your internal organs as well. Those impulses need a clear, unobstructed path to flow through. We agree with Dr. Windsor... By keeping those pathways clear with regular chiropractic care, your health will surely be going up!
Chiropractors recognize that no doctor, pharmacy or research lab on the earth can live up to the awesome task of keeping EVERYTHING in your body working JUST RIGHT. Only innate intelligence, the immeasurable genius within you, is able to handle that job. The best we can do as Chiropractors is to remove the stress that gets in its way. When we do, we know innate will only settle for what's JUST RIGHT inside you.
No matter how minor the slip, your Chiropractor would rather evaluate you right away to be safe. Not only can they adjust you back into alignment if necessary, correcting Subluxations sooner can prevent disruptions in your Life (and the Lives of others) later. After the fall, do us all a favor and get checked.
It's common for clients to hop off the chiropractic table after an adjustment, looking for some instant, noticeable change in the way they feel... and there are times when some relief is experienced. However, to expect an immediate resolution of a chronic complaint from one adjustment is no different than expecting to be 10 lbs lighter after just one low carb meal.
Physicians focus on body parts, psychologists analyze thoughts and clergy tend to matters of the spirit. But no one profession touches them all... your physical health, mental health and spiritual health like Chiropractic does. You can't experience any of these without a CLEAR nerve system. When Chiropractors re-establish normal spinal alignment and clear away nerve stress, your capacity to communicate physical, mental and spiritual health is simply better.
The 6th Principle in Chiropractic states "there is no process which does not require time," including the healing process. BJ Palmer (the developer of Chiropractic) believed that given enough time and a clear nerve system the body could heal itself in just about any circumstance. In his mind, the innate wisdom of the body had the potential to win any healing game if just given an opportunity. This is the foundation of all a successful Chiropractic experiences.
