Many people believe that chiropractic is about neck pain, back pain and headaches. However, here at RFC we know that chiropractic is so much more!
Here at RFC we see a lot of children and from the outside, this may seem a little extraordinary to some people. These kids aren’t coming in because they are in pain, but rather to have their nervous system’s checked for what we call Subluxation!
Subluxations are misalignments in the spine that affect the nerves exiting those between those bones, causing decreased communication from the brain to the body. These subluxations are often painless, but may cause a dysfunction in the body, not allowing the brain to communicate with the rest of the body as well as it possibly could!
Let’s look at this model of subluxation to help us understand!
When a spinal bone has moved out of alignment, causing the nerve exiting the spine to work less than 100%. The interesting thing is,the nerve exiting the spine sends messages to glands, tissues and organs in the body. Depending on the area this nerve may go to, the heart, the digestive track or even the immune system can be affected. This is why it is essential to get your entire family checked for vertebral subluxation. Here at RFC we want your brain and your nervous system functioning at 100% so the rest of your body is at it’s best! We call this the safety pin cycle! Thanks Dr. Anette Sorensen for the great drawing!
