Chiropractic is a health care profession that specializes in the health and function of the spine and nervous system.
Due to the specialization on the spine, many people believe that the chiropractor can only help with back, neck and headaches. However, chiropractic is about much more than pain.
It’s all about holistic health, well-being, maximizing performance and ultimately improving quality of life.
Why is the spine so important to the body?
The spine is used to protect the spinal cord, which is part of the central nervous system. The spine is like a multi-segment armor that moves flexibly with the body.
A lot happens under this armor. Information comes from everywhere from the body, via the spinal cord to the brain. The brain processes this information and sends back responses through the spinal cord to tell the body (consciously or unconsciously) how to respond.
What happens if I do not properly care for my body?
The Central Nervous System is like an information superhighway that carries vital information to all parts of the body. Gradually or spontaneously occurring stress factors (of any kind: physical, emotional, mental, chemical, electromagnetic, etc.) can influence the effectiveness and efficiency of this information flow between the brain and the body.
Information is sometimes transmitted incompletely or inaccurately to the brain. If one imagines the central nervous system as the motor of the body, then the chiropractor takes up the role of a mechanic.
Through specific and gentle adjustments / impulses, chiropractors maximize the natural communication between the body and the brain and ensure that the engine of the body runs like a racing car.
So, are you ready to run like a racing car ??
