Want to look 10 Pounds lighter and 5 years younger? Simply imagine you have a large balloon attached at the top of your head, pulling you skyward. This automatically elongates your spine which pulls back your shoulders and tucks in your tummy. You’ll be holding your head high. This will also expand your ribcage, helping your heart and lungs to function optimally, filling your cells with oxygen. If your spine is not aligned, you might get tired or feel pain.
Chiropractic adjustments can help! Chiropractic is a natural healing art and science which works with the Central Nervous System. The CNS regulates every bodily function, including muscle movement, range of motion, heart beats, and how all other internal organs work. Lack of proper function of the CNS also contributes to inflammation, which can serve as root to many debilitating diseases. Correcting your alignment over a series of adjustments will help eliminate inflammation from your body and improve overall functioning from the inside out. All nerve flow begins in the brain, the “central computer”, and is distributed through nerve networks. If there is any interference with the nerve flow, the body suffers. You might feel pain, stiffness, lack of motion, or you might not feel symptoms at all.
Your chiropractor will perform a comprehensive orthopedic and neurological examination, determining if you hold any nerve interference, called subluxations, in your body. Then, with finesse and leverage, remove the subluxations and free the nerve flow. Subluxations are like splinters in your fingertips and they hurt until they’re removed. Then the body can heal itself! For a better overall quality of life, you should consider seeing a chiropractor today!
