Clark Griswold stands with bated breath and extension cord in hand as a childlike giddiness overtakes him. The family drum roll commences, he makes the anticipated electrical connection and VOILA… nothing happens!

Clark has a power problem. Although the extension cords are all connected on each individual Christmas light has been inspected with precision, he’s still not connected to the source. It isn’t until his wife “adjusts” the switch in the garage and turns the MAIN POWER on that the light show begins. She’d actually make a good Chiropractor!

If your wiring is connected and your body parts have all been dutifully inspected by the best doctors in the world, you still won’t function to your potential if you’re not connected 100% to your source… the life sustaining power that flows from your nerve system. Make sure you and your family stay connected to it with regular Chiropractic care during this bustling holiday season!


Treating the Bark

You walk into your Chiropractor’s office, hop on a table and point to where it hurts. But the Chiropractor adjusts a totally different part of your spine… not even close to where you feel the pain. Why is that?

There’s an old saying that goes when you step on a dog’s tail, it barks out the other end. In Chiropractic, that means where you hurt (the bark) isn’t necessarily where the problem is (the tail). Many times the symptom you feel in one area is due to a remote cause. For example, someone with sciatica may feel pain down their leg, but the cause of the problem is a vertebral subluxation in their spine!

Chiropractors recognize that if you address the cause of the symptom, the body will no longer have a need to produce it. That’s why Chiropractors focus on fixing underlying problems and not superficial effects. Chasing after symptoms is like a dog chasing its own tail – spinning around and around until it gets dizzy, confused and frustrated. It’s much smarter to address the underlying cause from the start!
