“Goodbye pain, hello freedom”
Since 1895, under the influence of Daniel David Palmer, Doctors of Chiropractic have been focussed on the nervous system. The master system of the body that controls healing, regulation and overall wellness by SAFELY AND GENTLY removing “Vertebral Subluxations” that cause nerve interference to the nervous system. This scientific approach assists the body with achieving optimal function, allowing you to perform at your best and enabling the body to thrive the way it was intended to.
A “Vertebral Subluxation” is an area of tension in the spine, a small misalignment that places serious pressure on the adjacent nerves which leads to distorted nerve communication between the body and the brain. Untreated, subluxations can have a negative impact on all areas of life; from sleep to respiratory problems, lower concentration levels, intermittent stiffness, chronic pain, hormonal imbalances, gut disturbances, digestive tract issues, the list goes on! Symptoms – especially pain, is the body’s way to WARN us that injury is ALREADY OCCURING!
Worst of all, you can not always feel if you have a subluxation because only 10% of our nervous system can actually perceive pain. This means unto 90% can be highly stressed without any symptoms or warning signs… Is it a good idea to wait until your teeth fall out to have them checked? I’m sure you don’t think so. Vertebral Subluxations are not normal, but extremely common.
Different types of stress occurring in daily life likely to cause subluxations
- Physical stress like the birth process, accidents, falls, slips, repetitive movements and abnormal posture.
- Mental and emotional stress such as; changes in a career or life, work or home pressure, being too busy, disturbed sleep, irregular routines.
- Chemical stress like additives, preservatives, toxins and chemicals in food, food allergies, smoking, caffeine, alcohol abuse, medications, allergies to cleaning products or cosmetics.
Chiropractic adjustments focus on the structural stress (posture and alignment), while directly affecting the functionality (nervous system) with effective and safe techniques best suited to you as an individual. By detecting and reducing the neurological stress, the body is able to what it does best, HEAL ITSELF!
