What's your problem?
Many people begin chiropractic care because of an ache or a pain. But pain is not the problem! Pain is a symptom, a signal that something is wrong. Pain is no more a problem than a traffic signal or your alarm clock announcing that it's time to start the day. If there's a problem, it's the meaning we attach to the pain.
When we meet practice members who are in pain, besides being compassionate, our first thought is that they must have exceeded some physical, chemical or emotional limit to which they can no longer adapt. So while we're interested in the pain, we're even more interested in what was the underlying cause of the pain. Plus, what should the practice member do to avoid this in the future?
Do you know someone who thinks pain is a problem? Please send them our way. Because in our practice pain is never a problem!
Many people think chiropractic is about bones, especially spinal bones. But the fact is, we're much more interested in the nerves. In particular, the nerve messages that travel between the brain and the body and from the body back to the brain. Any type of disruption can distort or disturb the integrity of the controlling and regulating messages from the brain. The result can be ill health. Because the nervous system controls every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body, chiropractic care can help a wide variety of health problems.
Maybe you know someone who has been told that it's "all in their head" or that they'll have to "learn to live with it." Worse, someone who thinks they have a muscle relaxer shortage! Send them our way.
If you know someone who is shopping organically and reducing their dependence upon processed foods, but not getting regularly adjusted, they may be overlooking a key point.
Let's say you go to your favorite supermarket for your weekly shopping...and because you've wisely shopped the perimeter of the store where fresh foods are, you return home and put things away in your fridge. But you overlook on little detail.... the fridge is not plugged in! So the fridge has a major vertebral subluxation at the electrical outlet.
In the same way your fridge cannot preserve, protect and prolong the vitality of your foods without a properly functioning electrical system, your body cannot properly digest, assimilate, and eliminate foods with a vertebral subluxation interfering with your digestive system.
So it doesn't matter how healthy your organic food choices are, because your body won't be making the most of those healthy choices.
Your nervous system runs the whole show. If it doesn't work right, you don't work right! And if you don't work right you can't fully benefit from organic food, gym membership and other healthy habits.
