Chiropractic and massage therapy work because you are a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. Hello There! Millions of instructions flow from your brain, down the spinal cord, and out to every organ and tissue. Signals sent back to the brain confirm if the body is working correctly. Improper motion or position of bones and muscles of the spine can interfere with this vital exchange by irritating nerves and compromising the function of affected organs and tissues. Specific spinal adjustments are designed to improve mind/body communications. Health often returns with improved nervous system control of the body.
Most of us learned to think that having symptoms means you’re sick. But what about pre-symptomatic health problems?
To visit the doctor when you’re feeling great is something new. Yet, a growing number of people who want to be and do their best are visiting chiropractors and massage therapists on a regular basis. Regular maintenance of health is becoming the norm, you want to take care of your OWN health.
The First Symptom
Remember staying home from school when we were sick and returning when we were feeling better? We learned to think of being sick as having obvious symptoms. But these days, many health problems are the result of lifestyle choices that don’t always have obvious symptoms until the effects are well advanced.
The reverse is true as well. If you eat improperly prepared food and find yourself vomiting to expel it, you probably won’t feel good, but you’re having a healthy response.
Turns out that true health is how well our bodies work, not how we feel.
How well our body functions is based upon the integrity of our nervous system. That’s why so many seek our practice for wellness care. They want to make sure that every organ and tissue has an uninterrupted nerve supply. It just makes sense to detect little problems before they become serious concerns.
Key to health
The key to health begins with a properly working nervous system. True health is optimum physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
Drinking more water, eating nutritious foods, regular exercise and virtually every other healthy habit, produce even bigger dividends when you have a properly working nervous system.
Although everyone wants to feel good, your care should not be based on whether you have pain or other symptoms.
