What if I told you that there was a magic pill that you could take once per week and it could help you live a healthy life, a life with less aches and pains, less headaches, more endurance and vitality? This pill could keep your body functioning at a higher more optimum level, help you manage stress better and could potentially help prevent many different age related illnesses.
Would you take that pill each week or at least take it once or twice per month? What if I told you that “pill” is a CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT!!! I am guessing that most of you reading this article had no idea that chiropractic care is such a powerful tool for your healthcare.
Most people believe chiropractic care is just for aches and pains but many people don’t realize the true potential of chiropractic care for your overall health and for the health of your children! You may ask, “How can a chiropractor help my child?” Well, let me explain. Your nervous system is the master control for your entire body. This system controls everything from your heartbeat to digesting your food. Your nervous system is made up of your brain, spinal cord and nerves and this delicate system is protected by your skull, spine and pelvis.Throughout our lives we do many different things that can cause what we call “microtraumas” or simply “traumas” to the spinal joints and pelvis. Some of these things include simple falls when you are learning to walk as a toddler, falling off your bike, playing sports, sitting at a desk or computer all day, a long day traveling in a car; to larger traumas such as a car accident or work related injuries.
These traumas cause what we call a “chiropractic subluxation.” This subluxation affects the spinal joints which causes irritation to the spinal nerves and in turn affects your nervous system, the master control for your body! When you have a subluxation your body is not functioning at its optimum and this subluxation could eventually lead to aches, pains, headaches and even spinal degenerative joint disease. In children these subluxations can show as symptoms of ailments such as colic, constipation, ADHD, Autism, trouble sleeping etc. In adults it tends to show up as acid reflux, headaches, stiffness, back pain, difficulty coping with stress among other things. So, do you know anyone that has some of the common ailments listed above or are you possibly suffering with these ailments yourself? Guess what! You don’t have to live with daily aches and pains! Adding chiropractic care to your healthcare puzzle may be the missing link for you and your family to live a healthy life full of Vitality! So when was your last chiropractic adjustment?
