Have you ever noticed when something in your body is not working properly or just feeling off? If everything was in the proper place, working the way it was supposed to, you wouldn’t be experiencing that sensation. What chiropractors look for are spinal bones out of place, pinching on nerves. When you pinch a nerve it doesn’t cause pain. But it causes the nerve flow to be choked off. If the nerve flow is choked off, whatever that nerve is going to isn’t getting the right nerve energy and this will cause a weakness in that area. If you have a weakness then your body can’t handle the everyday stresses, the things you would like to do, and this can result in symptoms or pain. Sometimes, with repetitive stresses or trauma, this will cause the spine, usually over years, to heal wrong.
The point is to re-establish order in the structure of the body so that all the major segments are in vertical alignment where they can function properly. Picture a building that has lost its architectural integrity. When a building is even slightly off center, gravity can cause it to sag until finally it loses balance and begins to collapse under its own weight. A properly functioning nervous system is one of the keys to health and vitality. This can be achieved through utilizing different health options that chiropractors have to offer. Reducing or removing the nerve interference or subluxations helps the body reestablish its own innately driven architectural integrity.
