Unwind With Chiropractic

Ever feel “wound up” from the stresses of life? You feel tight and distorted, like a rubber band that’s been twisted to the brink of snapping? That tension you’re feeling isn’t in your head… it’s actually in your nerve system!

Physical, chemical and emotional stresses of life can wind up negative energy in your nerve system, gradually throwing your spine and your health out of balance. Chiropractors refer to this as being in a “subluxated state.” If this pent up nerve stress isn’t released, it builds silently until it ultimately manifests as a physical illness in your body. The solution… release the tension in the rubber band before it breaks.

Chiropractic care gently removes stress from your spine and spinal cord before a critical failure can occur. In doing so, you improve the odds of your body working to its potential over the course of your life. This is one “rubber band” you need to keep untangled!

Wash Me

What would happen if you didn’t clean your house for a few weeks? Your furniture would get pretty dusty wouldn’t it? The same can be said for you, if the dirt in your nerve system isn’t cleaned up on a regular basis!

The “dirt” we’re talking about is Vertebral Subluxation (a Chiropractic term for nerve interference). If not cleared regularly, stress from subluxations can pile up in your nerves, causing sleep disturbances, chronic fatigue, lowered resistance, persistent pain or even anxiety.

People who keep their nerve system “tidy” with regular chiropractic care report having more energy, better recovery from injuries and an improved state of mind. If your health isn’t as clean as you’d like it to be, maybe it’s time to dust the stress off with a good adjustment. Call us today to schedule your next appointment!

Checkers vs. Chess

There’s a vast difference between playing chess vs. playing checkers. In checkers, the best moves yield immediate results… a piece is jumped or a king is crowned. With chess however, the best moves aren’t made for simple instant gratification, but well thought out for the benefits they will reap many moves ahead. Chiropractic shares a similar modus operandi! 

Today, instant relief comes in the form of pain relievers, muscle relaxers and cortisone shots. And yes, those “moves” can bring instant gratification… but does a temporary patch contribute anything to your best health? Chiropractic care, on the other hand, makes moves (adjustments) that provide natural relief and sets you up for improvements in other areas of your health down the road! One spinal move today sets up a cascade of positive physiological changes you’ll experience in your body for years to come.

Winning health strategies aren’t founded on quick fixes that make you feel comfortable in the moment, but on smart actions you take now that will contribute to your wellness in the future. Every chiropractic adjustment removes a piece of “dis-ease” off the board – clearing a path to your desired health goals. When it comes to chiropractic, we don’t think checkers… we think chess!

The Right Key

You’ve tried stretching, went to physical therapy and faithfully did all the exercises they prescribed. But still your spine feels tight, rigid and locked up. In your case, Chiropractic may hold the right key!

Unlike the gross manipulative therapy done by PT’s and osteopaths, or the general movement offered by prescribed exercises, specific Chiropractic adjustments ONLY target the parts of your spine that need work. Specificity is the key to results – knowing what spinal segments to move, when to move them and how much force to use is paramount to getting a favorable outcome… and that requires a skill set taught only in a reputable Chiropractic College.

You wouldn’t use a sledge hammer to bust open your front door if the right key wasn’t handy to unlock it safely. The same goes for your spine. When it comes to unlocking a tough, painful back it’s best to seek the advice of a master spinal locksmith (a DC) who know what they’re doing. In the long run you’ll save time, money and frustration hiring the right person for the job!
