How well does your body work?
If you lose your car keys, simply retrace your steps and you’ll likely find them. Lose your health and finding it can be just as easy – if you know where to look.
A fever can be a perfectly healthy response, as is vomiting, sneezing, and coughing. Chiropractic doctors are interested in the cause, not the effect.
Health has nothing to do with how you feel, you temperature, or whether symptoms are present. Those who die of heart attack, cancer, or dozens of other health problems suffer ill health long before their first symptom. Real health is not how you feel; it’s how you function!
It is the purpose of your brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of your body to direct and control the function of every cell, tissue, and organ.
Real health allows us to adapt to the environment, cooling us when we’re hot, fighting a virus, healing a cut, digesting our food, and millions of other vital activities. When there is interference to this complex orchestra of controlling nerve impulses, the resulting symptoms are simply warning signs that things are not right. The chiropractic approach to heal health is to locate any part of the nervous system that has lost proper control of the organs and tissues of your body.
Improving the function of your nervous system can help restore the function of your entire body – the definition of real health.
A common culprit is when moving bones of the spinal column choke or irritate the spinal cord or nerve roots. Locating, reducing, and preventing these “vertebral subluxations” is the primary interest of your chiropractor.
