Improve Energy and Focus with Chiropractic Care
Do you ever feel run down, bored, or depressed? Do you occasionally have trouble concentrating? Well, you may be surprised to learn that those seemingly unrelated conditions could be caused by the same thing: a foundation that isn’t properly aligned.
If you think chiropractors only deal with neck and back pain, raise your hand. Don’t worry; that seems to be the general consensus. But what chiropractors really do is provide whole-body health and wellness by concentrating on your body’s foundation: your spine.
As you probably know, when your spine is out of alignment, this can cause pain. However, only 10% of your body’s nerves are pain nerves. Which means that 90% of the time your body is out of alignment, you won’t be able to recognize it. Unless you realize that misalignment can produce problems anywhere in your body.
When your spine is misaligned, this can put undue pressure on your central nervous system. When there’s pressure on your nervous system, this causes interference in the way your brain communicates with the rest of your body. And if your brain and body aren’t properly communicating, you could experience sciatica, or TMJ, or brain fog, or lack of energy, or dozens of other symptoms that, before just now, you thought of as unrelated.
When it comes to your body, everything is related. And everything is connected!
Improve Your Focus with Chiropractic Care
There’s nothing worse than brain fog. Sitting still, wondering why your brain suddenly stopped working. And feeling helpless to do anything about it.
Remember how everything is connected? Musculoskeletal imbalance can lead to an imbalance of brain activity, which can cause some of those mental issues. And what is a primary cause of musculoskeletal imbalance? Spinal misalignment!
Vertebral misalignment reduces nerve function. It’s important to understand that when this happens, your brain can’t communicate properly, and your body could experience problems anywhere. Which means your back problem is really a brain problem.
A disruption in communication that produces physical ailments may sound like science fiction, but it’s not. It’s science, without the fiction.
Studies have been done on children with learning disorders, and hyperactivity problems. After corrections in spinal alignment, conditions and symptoms often disappear. And in many studies, chiropractic care outperformed prescription medications.
Let’s not forget that medicating with prescription drugs usually comes with unwanted side effects. But worse than that, medication does nothing to solve your problems. It only masks the symptoms.
This is dangerous! Symptoms are your body’s way of telling you there’s a problem. Taking something to mask those symptoms would be like taking the batteries out of your smoke detector and expecting that to be a viable solution to the threat of fire.
Increase Your Energy with Chiropractic Care
OK, let’s take a short quiz.
When your spine is out of alignment, where do you feel it?
Anywhere in your body
You might not feel it
C or D
We know it seems to strange to comprehend, but it’s E. Spinal misalignment, also known as subluxation, can produce no symptoms, or symptoms anywhere. And remember how important symptoms are? Of course you do.
By the way, when your body experiences nerve problems, the next step is often nerve damage. And this is something that cannot be reversed. Proper alignment and paying attention to the signals your body sends you are vitally important for proper health. And for living life with energy and vitality.
Another consequence of a spine out of alignment is muscle stress. Muscles have to work harder, and often under tension, when you have a subluxation. And when your body has to work harder, this will naturally deplete your energy levels.
Subluxations can also have a negative impact on hormonal balance, which can drain your adrenals and subsequently your energy. When it comes to your body, it’s important to remember that everything is connected. Any treatment that seeks to isolate parts of the body simply cannot be effective.
Increasing your energy levels with coffee and energy drinks is maybe not the best idea. These produce short-term benefits, but long-term you’re doing damage that may not be reversible.
Chiropractic care is whole-body care. And a chiropractor’s area of expertise is the spine – your foundation.
Healthy spine, healthy body. Which is maybe a good reason to not only consider chiropractic care as a way to “fix” your problems, but as preventative treatment, so you can spare yourself problems in the first place.
