You probably visit your dentist’s office once or twice a year. And you know there is a link between gum disease and heart disease. How come no one says, “Once you go to a dentist, you have to go for the rest of your life?” Well, it's probably because your dentist has shown you the VALUE in a healthy smile, healthy gums, and a healthy heart.
The same holds true for spinal health. Every cell (all 70-80 trillion of them) need to have proper nerve supply to survive and function properly. When there is "interference" in the spinal system (Subluxation), the cells/organs/tissues at the end of that nerve start to dysfunction, get sick or die. (Think about Christopher Reeve... did he just have neck pain??). If those nerves are supplying your heart.... dysfunctional heart cells = heart disease.
More people are walking around (feeling good) with Subluxation than those who don't have "tooth pain" but have poor oral hygiene. Would you trust your Dentist if s/he said, "only brush and floss when your teeth/gums hurt?". You'd look at him/her cross-eyed!
The fact is your spine requires more maintenance than our skin, ears, teeth, and gums. Just think of what you put your spine through each day... A stress-filled job, poorly designed chairs, repetitive motions, a lack of exercise, a sagging mattress and countless “micro-traumas” that accumulate over time. Your spine, and the nervous system it protects, is being constantly assaulted by the way we live our busy lives. And while a way to literally “floss your spine” will never be invented, a visit to our Elkhorn office for regular chiropractic care is even better. If it’s been awhile since your last visit or you are new to chiropractic, give us a call. Let’s catch those little problems (subluxation) before they become serious (chronic illness). We will help you keep your nervous system in optimum condition; at least the part of your spine (and the organs it supplies) you want to keep!
