Each and every one of us, each and everyday are challenged with different stresses in life. Some stress is obvious… lifting something the wrong way, sitting for long hours in a commute to work, carrying too much weight on our bodies, a child’s fall as they begin to walk. Some stresses are more subtle… running late for a meeting, a financial difficulty, studying for a test. Other stresses may exist but we may not even mentally be aware of them…preservatives in our foods, toxins in the carpet at work, exhaust fumes, drugs to cure all of our stresses!
It is our body’s responsibility to deal with these Physical, Emotional and Chemical stresses. At some point this combination of stresses can create an overwhelming amount of tension that the body begins to store. As this tension increases layer upon layer it can begin to distort and directly affect the nervous system. As the life flow in the nerve is diminished by this subluxation, the body functions at a lower level of overall expression.
The Chiropractic adjustment assists the body in dissipating this tension and allows the life flow to be enhanced. When the body has an increase in its life flow and is connected optimally to itself an abundance of potential Physically, Emotionally and Spiritually can be experienced.
Why get adjusted? The answer is simple. To Enhance Your Life!
What is Chiropractic?
The Science, Art and Philosophy of Chiropractic was brought to our world by D.D. Palmer, in Davenport Iowa in the year 1895. Over the past 100 plus years, the profession has developed to provide humanity with the opportunity of health enhancement by means of allowing the body to fully express its healing potential.
The Science of Chiropractic is based on the design of the body. The nervous system consisting of the brain and spinal cord are responsible for controlling and coordinating all functions of the body. As the life signal is allowed to move throughout this system, the body can express itself to its optimal potential. Any interference with this life signal creates an obstacle for the body to fully express itself. This interference is called a subluxation, which is a state of lowered life expression. A Chiropractor will determine were the body is subluxated and through the art form of Chiropractic, assist a person in the body’s ability to change. The Principle of Life and its necessity to flow freely within and around the body by way of the nerve system is the reason why Chiropractors focus on assisting the removal of interference. Life flows from Above, Down, Inside and Out and our ability to heal and express ourselves at a higher level is an innate gift. The power and wonder that created the body continues to restore, maintain and optimize it!
