What is Chiropractic All About?
The philosophy of the wellness care movement is the belief that the body has the natural ability to heal itself.
Chiropractic practitioners use the wellness philosophy as their foundation to treat general health issues believing that our body structure affects our overall functioning.
Chiropractic care is based on the belief that the relationship between the body’s structure (primarily that of the spine) and its function (as coordinated by the nervous system) affects our health.
Chiropractic Wellness Care Benefits
Chiropractic can be an effective component of wellness care since the nervous system is central to the health of your body. Communication flows back and forth between the brain and the spine and the cells, tissues and organs. If the communication gets blocked, then a breakdown of the body occurs.
If you already have aches, pains, illness and disease, correcting the alignment in your spine will allow your body to operate at its optimal level. Once operating efficiently, the body’s innate power will seek to heal itself.
Once this optimization is achieved, you will want to keep it there. It makes no sense to be functioning at an optimal level and assume that there will never be another the need for another adjustment. Our lives are so full that adjustments are simply a fact of life.
Treatment or measures designed not to cure a disease or reduce pain, but prevent them from occurring or reoccurring.
Imagine getting your engine tuned up so that your car now sounds beautiful, uses a minimum of oil, has great gas mileage and rides smoothly. Now, you take that car on a cross-country trip. After the trip, you continue to drive the car without taking it to the mechanic again. In short order, your car will not be running smoothly. It uses more oil and your gas mileage is lower. Then the “check engine” light come on and you have to rush the car to the garage.
A regular tune-up after the trip would have prevented the crisis. The same is true for our bodies. Once you have your body working well, a “tune-up” in the form of chiropractic maintenance care will keep your body running smoothly. This is what wellness care is all about.
Just as a tuned up car has benefits, so does chiropractic wellness care. They include:
- Healthy joints
- Improved posture
- More energy
- Properly functioning nervous system
- Stronger immune system
- Better sleep
- Stress relief
- Disease prevention
