The Chiropractic Meaning of Life
There is a distinct Chiropractic view of health and life that states that health is much more than just how you feel, it's how you function. Health is a state in which your body can express 100% of your innate potential. Where your cells, tissues, organs and systems are functioning as close to 100% as possible.
The body is designed with an inborn ability (innate intelligence) to maintain itself in a state of proper function. There is an innate intelligence in all living things, which in humans is the nerve energy generated by the brain flowing over nerves to govern all functions and healing. Every organ, gland, and cell in the body depends upon messages carried to and from the brain via the nerve system to function in a coordinated manner so that each part can benefit the whole body, producing a full and healthy life. The brain, spinal cord and connecting nerve system are the primary tools by which we attain proper function.
The quality of your life is directly proportional to the ability of your nerve system to express this intelligence through your body without interference in this process. The primary conduit of the nerve system is your spinal cord. The spinal cord is protected by bone -- twenty four vertebrae protect the spinal cord and spinal nerve trunks. When stress (physical, chemical, emotional) overwhelms the body's resistance, it causes the spinal bones (vertebrae) to lose their normal alignment and function. This disrupts the nerve systems ability to express your innate intelligence properly, resulting in a loss of the expression of life and health in the body. We call this a vertebral subluxation. Vertebral subluxation reduces the body’s ability to function in a coordinated manner. Vertebral subluxations are caused by everyday, common activities and interfere with the ability of the nerve system to carry messages that are necessary for the successful accomplishment of everyday activities, not the least of which is the attainment of maximum health.
Chiropractic restores normal alignment and function in your spine, allowing your nerve system to function as best as possible, so that you can express your health and LIFE to your fullest potential.
In our office, the single objective of the chiropractor is to locate and correct vertebral subluxation in adults and children so that families and entire communities are able to express life at a higher level. If you and your family are not seeing a chiropractor regularly, you are not doing all you could for your life and health. It’s as simple as that!
