A person is only as healthy as their spine
You should be able to perform your job or play sports without pain. You shouldn’t have to get out of bed stiff and sore in the morning. Chiropractic keeps your musculoskeletal system sound by locating and correcting spinal misalignments. A healthy spine free of nerve interference is less vulnerable to injury, pain, and eventual degeneration. For you that means moving as you please, when you please without relying on drugs or surgery.
A wellness approach to better health means adopting a variety of healthy habits for optimum function on all levels – physical, mental, social and spiritual. Your nervous system controls the function of virtually every aspect of our lives. So maintaining a properly functioning nervous system is essential if you want to be your best.
Subluxations, or spinal misalignments, occur along your spine as a result of physical, emotional, and environmental stress. Your nerves, which exit the spine, carry vital information to your cells and organs. Spinal misalignments can cause your spinal nerves to become irritated, inflamed, and stretched, and cause subtle changes that you won’t feel early on. If not treated, spinal misalignments cause injury to your soft tissues (such as muscles, ligaments, and joints) and can develop into more serious problems later on. Unknowingly, your spine can be subjected to accumulated stress without symptoms, until one day you’re sore, stiff or can’t move.
Areas of your spine that are out of alignment are detected by your chiropractor. These problem areas can be corrected before they lead to greater dysfunction and pain. It may take some time for your supporting soft tissues to return to their correct position as connective tissues may be used to performing in a dysfunctional way. Poor spinal health has taken time to occur and also takes time to repair.
It is important to keep up regular chiropractic care so that your soft tissues can “re-learn” the proper way to function. As your spine and musculoskeletal tissues adapt to their correct position, you may find that you feel better than ever before! Regular spinal adjustments can become your body’s line of defence against illness, disease and pain.
Don’t wait until you are in pain. Pain is often the last symptom to surface when you have a spinal health problem. It is important to maintain your spinal health before more serious problems occur. Health is far more than the absence of pain. Your chiropractor will identify and correct spinal interferences before any serious problems occur.
