It’s more than you think
What is keeping your family from functioning 100%?
Chiropractic seeks to relieve the cause of your symptoms. Your nervous system controls everything! Everything your body does has a relationship with your nervous system. Heal a cut, snap your fingers, speed up your heart, listen for a baby’s cry, turn food into blood cells, fight off infection…. all the result of a functioning nervous system. Mental impulses leave the brain and travel down the information superhighway of your spinal column to every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. Then, a signal is sent back to your brain so it knows that everything is working correctly.
If controlling mental impulses are missing, impaired, or interfered with, the organs and tissues controlled by the affected nerve do not work as they should. Numbness, tingling and pain can be experienced, setting the stage for all types of disease and ill health. Irritated nerves can overstimulate affected organs or tissues contributing to allergic reactions, twitching, excess stomach acid and other types of hyperactive organ functions.
These types of responses are called symptoms. Symptoms occur when nerve function is impaired. Frequently this interference comes from the 24 moving bones of the spinal column and the surrounding soft tissues like muscles, tendons, ligaments and discs. Your spinal column permits you to turn and bend, while allowing nerve roots on either side to exit from between each spinal joint. These nerves connect your brain with the organs and tissues of your body. When the bones of the spine lose their normal motion or position, nerves can be stretched, rubbed, choked or irritated. When this occurs health problems may result. Doctors call this the Vertebral Subluxation Complex, or more commonly, a Subluxation.
We commonly seek cure for a subluxation when we have pain or other symptoms. Subluxations can affect organs and tissues that do not sense pain, so you could actually have one right now but not know it. This is true with any health-related problem. Often, the first sign of cardiovascular disease is a deadly heart attack. Just relying on how you feel is a poor measure of your health.
Chiropractic seeks to find the cause of your problems and help correct subluxations that may be interfering with your nervous system. This is done through chiropractic adjustments. Adjustments help bones and the surrounding soft tissues to return to their proper motion and position, relieving symptoms. Chiropractic seeks to relieve the cause of your symptoms. You are a self-regulating, self-healing organism, not a machine. True health is your natural state and is programmed into your cells and expressed through your nervous system when there isn’t any interference.

Treating symptoms is like trying to put out a fire by spraying an extinguisher at the smoke alarm instead of the fire. Just as water cannot properly flow through a leaky hose, a subluxation can obstruct nerve impulses and may result in symptoms.
