1. Your body has the inborn ability to heal and repair.
When there is interference, health expression is limited because nerve communication is limited. Your brain controls function, healing and coordinates cell replacement. Health and adaptation to your environment is expressed through your nerve system including your: brain, brain stem, spinal cord, spinal nerves and peripheral nerves.
2. We measure the health of your spine and nerve system by the alignment, function and damage we see on assessment
Since your spine is designed to protect your spinal cord and nerves, its health is essential for the health of your nerves. Less than 10% of your nerves have the ability to sense pain, so how you feel only tells us a little bit about your health. Damage can occur long before symptoms begin.
3. Subluxation interferes with brain to body nerve connection
Subluxation literally means ‘less than normal light/energy’. When your spine is misaligned, moving poorly and/or damaged, your nerves don’t work correctly. As a result, your brain can’t talk to your body properly and you lose normal function, healing and cell replacement. This limits the expression of life and health.
4. Chiropractic adjustments are the only thing that corrects subluxation
Our job is to assess your spine and nerve health thoroughly for any areas of subluxation. We will then know how many adjustments you will need to correct the problem areas, what home stretches to prescribe and what corrective exercises may be required.
5. You and your body control the speed of recovery
Healing takes time, and this assessment will tell us how long the problems have been there, and how long they will take to heal. Not surprisingly, when there is more damage, the healing process takes longer. That’s the reason we check and adjust many newborns, babies, toddlers and children. It is much easier to correct subluxations early, and keep children healthy, rather than trying to fix damage after it’s occurred.
