What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic deals with the master communication system of the body. The brain, the spinal cord and the nerves going out from the spine.
If nothing is blocking this system, then the body works at its full potential. If, however, a spinal bone moves out of alignment, it interferes with the transmission of mental impulses from the brain to the body. This blockage is called a subluxation.
“Sub” means below, “lux” means light energy, and “ation” means the condition of. A subluxation is an area of the body that receives below the normal “light or energy”. If this happens, then part of the body no longer works at its full potential.
A chiropractor finds the spinal bones that are not in alignment and gently, with his/her hands, moves the bone back into alignment. This, the master communication system is restored to 100% it’s potential.
Living at 100%
The chiropractor’s job is NOT just to remove pain or make you “feel” better. The true job of a chiropractor is to allow you to live as close to 100% as possible. If you are living at anything less that 100%, then you cannot “be all that you can be.”
By removing the blockage, or subluxation, the body now has a change to heal itself by receiving 100% life energy. ANYONE who has a subluxation is better off without one.
Chiropractic during Pregnancy
Chiropractic is beneficial for everyone but it is especially conducive during times when the body is undergoing a lot of changes, such as with pregnancy and throughout childhood development.
During pregnancy, the body has to accommodate extra weight, a different center of gravity, hormonal changes leading to ligament laxity, and changes in the pelvis to provide room for the baby to grow. A body that is not working at its fullest potential will have a hard time making these changes. This can lead to musculoskeletal pain during pregnancy, longer labor and delivery, and other complications. The good news is that women were designed to be able to have children and be healthy in the process! Chiropractic care throughout pregnancy will allow for the mom’s body to do what it was designed to do and accommodate these changes so that the baby can grow in the best environment possible!
Chiropractic for Children
From birth, children are rapidly growing and developing. A child’s brain will be 80% of an adult size by the age of 3 and 90% of an adult size by the age of 5. The early years are a critical time for the nervous system to be functioning at an optimal level. Chiropractors deliver very safe, gentle adjustments for children to help keep their nervous systems functioning at 100%.
Through chiropractic care and proper diet, children are able to avoid common childhood ailments such as ear infections, asthma, colic, and other developmental issues. Not only that, but children are set up for a lifetime of health and properly functioning nervous system!
Our purpose is to educate and adjust as many families as possible towards optimal health through chiropractic care.
