Health is when all your organs and systems are functioning 100% of the time, not just in the absence of sickness, disease. Your nervous system, which is made up of your brain and spinal cord, is responsible for controlling all the function of your body. How your nervous system is functioning at any given time will determine the status of your health.
Chiropractic is unique, because it is the only healthcare profession that addresses the interferences of the nervous system functioning properly. These interferences are called pinched nerves. These pinched nerves are caused by stresses on the body. Chiropractic corrects these pinched nerves and allows the body to return to it’s proper function.
The stresses that cause these pinched nerves come in 3 different forms: Physical, chemical and emotional stress.
If these pinched nerves are left unattended, they will very likely lead to a variety of health problems at some point in life.
Pain is a common warning sign of pinched nerves. Pain typically indicates that the pinched nerves have usually been present for a long period of time. You may experience neck or back pain, or pain traveling down an arm or leg. If a pinched nerve goes to an organ system, it will likely impact the communication from the nervous system to that organ. This will interfere with how that organ would normally function. A few examples of this are: constipation, diarrhea, depressed immune system, difficulty sleeping, forgetfulness, headaches, and dizziness.
I think we can all agree that stresses have a big impact on our lives. The technology that we use at Crossroads Chiropractic allows us to measure how and where these stresses are affecting your body and your overall health. This allows us to measure your health by how you are functioning rather than just how you are feeling.
Chiropractic adjustment are the only way to correct pinched nerves caused by stresses, thereby allowing your body to function at its optimum level.
Chiropractic focuses on the relationship between the spine and the nervous system. When your nervous system is functioning properly, your body knows how to heal, regulate, and adapt appropriately to the many stressors of everyday life, while allowing you to live your life to the fullest. It is important to understand why everyone who wishes to be truly healthy needs to be checked by a chiropractor regularly to ensure optimal nerve function. (Read More…
