It's More Than Just Back Pain - The Nervous System Controls All The Functions Of The Body
Accidents and injuries can tear loose the connective tissue that holds the spine in place. When the spine breaks down in the torn area it becomes locked into a stressed position and is said to be subluxated. The subluxated spine shows up in the individual as:
A subluxated spine may show up as abnormal movements, often stumbling, and dropping things, and abnormal positions of joints, both resulting in progressive asymmetric wear and tear as we lean to one side or another. Over time this process produces PAIN!The subluxated spine affects the BRAIN, the SPINAL CORD and the NERVES that make the body work. This means that a misalignment affects:
- Every movement we make
- Every sensation we have
- Virtually every body function!
The bones in your spine are designed to move while protecting the delicate tissues of the spinal cord. When the spine is misaligned it creates body imbalance from head to toe. More weight shifts to one side of the body than another and not having that corrected to restore body balance is like continuing to drive a car that is misaligned. Over time everything is going to break down. You can keep replacing the tires, but unless you have the car aligned, you’ll just be wasting your money. The same thing is true for headaches or neck pain or hundreds of other conditions that have been known to respond well to gentle precise adjusting. The problems will not go away until you correct your misalignment.
Here's How We Make The Correction!
The repositioning of the vertebrae is done by hand or by instrument. After a detailed examination and analysis of your specific misalignment, gentle forces are applied at specific points to restore alignment The adjustments are so gentle that you may not feel movement of the bones. But your correction will be monitored using objective measures to be sure that you are in proper alignment. The procedure restores body balance and brain-to-body communication so that organs, limbs and tissues can resume normal functioning. The body can now self-heal. That is why we see many different conditions responding to the same procedure.
