Spread the Good News
While the pharmaceutical industry spends millions promoting prescription medications, natural chiropractic care has survived for over a century. How? By delighted patients telling others. Good old-fashioned word of mouth has helped those who had previously lived with persistent, pesky pain to seek gentle, natural chiropractic care. If you’ve experienced the benefits of chiropractic care in your life, then there’s no time better than now to share how chiropractic has helped you. Encourage someone to visit us and allow us to locate and reduce the cause of his or her pain naturally, without drugs. How can you explain chiropractic care? Simple. The focus is on reducing nerve interference, usually along the spine because the moving bones of the spinal column are common culprits producing the nerve interference. Share your story with others so their body can do what it was designed to, and they can get back to enjoying those activities they love.
Will Adjustments Make My Spine Too Loose?
You may have heard this concern voiced by those who don’t fully understand how chiropractic works. Most spinal problems come in pairs. Usually there’s an area of the spine that is not moving adequately, accompanied by another area that compensates by moving too much. This area can even be at opposite ends of the spine! They’re called compensation reactions. Your body is constantly dealing with the force of gravity. When one area of your spine malfunctions, an equal and opposite reaction can appear elsewhere. This is why patients are often surprised that we examine their upper back when their complaint is in their lower back. Our goal is to avoid the compensations and focus on the primary subluxations. The spinal joints that move too much are avoided so muscles and ligaments can stabilize and heal. When we add motion to stuck spinal joints, areas that are too loose can properly heal.
Making a Fresh Start
Did you eat too much during the holiday season? Are you planning to start a crash diet in the New Year and spend hundreds of dollars on gym memberships and workout attire just to ease your guilt? Consider taking a different approach to a healthy 2016! It serves a better purpose to consider a lifestyle change, rather than just making changes that will only last for a few weeks or maybe months. Recognize that you’ve enjoyed eating whatever you want and make the decision to ease yourself gently back to a healthier way of life. So, where do you begin? One of the simplest steps is to schedule regular visits to our practice. Have any interference to your nervous system reduced and allow your body to function as it was designed to. While you’re here, let’s discuss your health goals and the best way for you to reach them.
