Our joints are designed to move. Sometimes this movement is inhibited by lifestyle and injury. Inactivity can reduce motion in the joints. Injuries can create scar tissue in the joints and change the position of the joint inhibiting motion. When there is lack of motion a pain message is sent to the brain. Chiropractic adjustments will put motion back into the joint and allow the joint to return to its proper motion and position. This removes the pain signal sent to the brain.
Our spine has many joints and houses our entire nervous system which is our life force for our entire body and all of it’s functions. Spinal care is crucial to remain healthy and keep our body functioning the best it can. That is truly what chiropractic care is about, eliminating pain is just a positive side effect.
Chiropractic can strengthen your immune system!
It’s that time of year again. Lines will soon form outside of every corner prescription retailer. The water cooler conversions about ‘getting your shot’ will become more common place. It’s flu season – so let the fear begin.
If you pay close attention, you’ll discern the patronizing message behind Big Pharma’s campaign during the up coming (and likely worst yet) flu season. You’re not smart enough – follow our commercials… You’re too weak – trust our shots… Your body doesn’t stand a chance of making it by itself – depend on our pills and potions. NOTHING about your body’s innate ability to adapt to its environment. NOTHING about the intimate relationship between neurology and immunology. NOTHING about how capable you truly are of getting through the ‘season’ on your own.
Don’t let the flu season fear mongers bully you into thinking you’re not good enough to survive without their help. Start training for the fight now with good nutrition, proper rest and exercise and last but not least, keeping your Nerve System strong and clear. Keep calm, your Chiropractor believes in you.
