Chiropractic is straightforward. It’s name alone points to its simplicity- formulated from the Greek words for “hand” and “to do” to mean, “to do by hand”.
Chiropractic is different. It does not use external sources to find healing and freedom from illness, but corrects from within. Right from the start, Chiropractic has embraced our body’s innate potential to heal itself.
Let’s consider the difference between living and nonliving flesh. Take a piece beef and make a small cut into it. This same cut is made into the arm of a living, breathing, intelligent human. A week passes, and the cut within the meat remains the same: open, unguarded, unhealed. In the same amount of time, the cut into a human arm has bled, the blood clotted, and a scab has formed. The tissues have begun to heal. The human did nothing to further this healing – his body knew what to do, communicated the healing procedures, and the healing commenced.
In the same manner, Chiropractic corrects subluxations (misalignments) in the spinal vertebrae that create interference of never signals from the brain to the body and the body to the brain. This is called a Chiropractic manipulation, or more commonly, an adjustment, allowing the body to fully communicate within itself to heal dis-ease (dis-ease: the time or space between optimal health and the expression of symptoms that indicate you have a Disease).
This dis-ease may be pain in the back or neck, legs or arms, hand or feet. Or, it may be fatigue, mental fogginess, hormonal imbalances, an impaired immune system; it may be chronic ear infections in children, persistent colds and sore throats, and overall weak immunity.
Chiropractic is not solely about relieving pain. That is only, as they say, the tip of the iceberg. It is about restoring the balance your body has with its environment (nature) by allowing proper, communication from the spinal cord and brain to the rest of the body. You see in Chiropractic we understand that Health Flows from Above Down Inside Out. This means that the intelligence that guides and flows through all living matter travels from the creator down into our bodies and when we are healthy on the inside we express it on our outside. Nothing is more important to our health than allowing this intelligence to flow freely through our bodies.
Chiropractic has something to offer everyone. It is for families, kids, expectant mothers, babies, athletes, homemakers, executives, laborers, technicians, assistants, students, young and old. You are a living, breathing, intelligent human who will always benefit from an uncompromised nervous system, Chiropractic is for you! Chiropractic simply makes sense. And having a Chiropractor for you and your family will make certain that your body has the know-how to communicate and heal itself. It just needs you to give it a start, and to give it an uncompromised chance.
