Which Drop Did It?

Which Drop Did It?

A titration test analyzes how many drops of chemical it takes to create a specific reaction - usually a change in solution color.  Drop by drop, the reagent is added until an observable change is seen.  And if asked which drop finally made the difference, the correct answer would be they all did.

Chiropractic care works in similar fashion.  Often a patient will exclaim after a visit '...doc, that last adjustment really did it, I felt better right away.'  In reality, it wasn't just the ONE adjustment that did the trick - the past ones contributed, as will the future ones.  The effect is cumulative.

When adjusted regularly, drop by drop, you eventually reap the rewards in improved health, higher function and realized potential.  If you ever wonder which adjustment changed your Life for the better?  The answer is - they all did, and will continue to do so.

Numb to Your Target

Numb to Your Target

According to a CDC study, suicide has become the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. and is one of three leading causes that are on the rise. Fashion creator Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain's recent deaths are just two examples - with the usual media references to depression... but no specifics on how, when or where they lost sight of their PURPOSE.

Humans are 'cybernetic' creatures who need meaningful targets in Life. Like any homing device, if your guiding system is clouded by reality altering chemicals and you've lost focus on your "target," you'll miss it all together.  Worse yet, you could up in a really bad place through no fault of your own.

We all experience let downs, disappointments and sadness in Life. Knowing these are inevitable, our Creator equipped us with an innate guidance system (our nerve system) to keep us on purpose and on track amid the stresses in Life. Numbing up that guidance system with chemicals renders it rudderless. You can't deal with Life if you can't feel it.

Holding You Together

Holding You Together

The Major Premise of Chiropractic states "there is a universal intelligence in all matter that continually gives to it all its properties and actions, thus maintaining it in existence." Literally, something smart is holding the universe and all its components together in perfect organization and order.

Since you too are part of the universe, that unseen wisdom is holding you together as well - maintaining your physiological functions, your ability to resist life's stresses and your state of health. In Chiropractic terms, that special intelligence inside you, the one that's holding YOUR internal universe together is called “innate intelligence.” Without it, you wouldn't be in existence.

So here's a great question to ask you Chiropractor on your next visit... If the same power that holds the cosmos together is inside you, holding you together in perfect organization and operation, how could something dead or artificial from the OUTSIDE (like a pill, a potion or prescription) do a better job of healing you than what your inner Power is already capable of - as long as it's not interfered with?

Forest for the Trees

Forest for the Trees

"Seeing the forest for the trees" is an expression of PERSPECTIVE. It's the ability to step back and see the whole picture of a given situation, instead of clinging to a narrow, limited, myopic one. Focusing on the BIG IDEA is necessary to achieving any worthy goal.

We commonly hear newer patients say... my migraines, my sciatica, my fibromyalgia - labeling themselves by their doctor's diagnosis instead seeing themselves as the healthy people they want to be. Unfortunately when it comes to healing, holding on to your symptoms is as beneficial as hugging a tree and never letting go. You can't see the forest of wellness if you insist on clinging to the trunk of disease.

You don't get healthy by focusing on sickness. You get healthy by letting go, stepping back and acknowledging who you REALLY are... an innately gifted human being, capable of healing from above down, inside out. It's our job as your Chiropractor to never let you forget it.

Cracked, Not Slipped

Cracked, Not Slipped

The human body mimics nature's design in many ways. One in particular is the likeness between your spinal discs and a cut tree trunk. The rings of a tree tell its age... the rings of your discs tell HOW you've aged.

Spinal discs consist of concentric annular rings (like a tree) with a soft central area called the Nucleus Pulposis.  The nucleus responds to sustained pressure and works best mechanically when your spine is in proper alignment.  What the lay public often calls a 'slipped disc' is actually a stressed disc that has been subjected to poor spinal alignment over time, causing cracks in the annular rings and 'squishing' of the nucleus material into the voids. Bulges lead to herniations, herniations lead to ruptures, ruptures lead to surgery and disability.

Nothing will make you feel older than you are than having a disc problem. With the appropriate Chiropractic care, spinal distortions which lead to disc degeneration can be reversed... easing the lopsided pressure that splinters discs into ruin.  If you're suffering from chronic disc problems, getting back in alignment FIRST could prevent you from aging faster than you have to.

Wired for LIFE

Wired for LIFE

Electricity flows through power lines and messages of communication flow through phone cables... but the 'power' that flows through Nerve fibers is far more intricate, intelligent and critical to your Life.

Nerves carry 'smart' signals - organized instructions and data which relay from the brain to the body and from the body back to the brain.  This complicated loop forms the communication network needed to guide every physiological function in your body from respiration to perspiration... assimilation to elimination... tissue breakdown and tissue repair.  Innately, trillions of these messages flow through your nerve system every second of your Life, in an automated effort to keep you alive without your conscious input.  So how important it is to maintain this amazing system?

This is the realm of Chiropractic care - the protection and preservation of these 'Life wires' so that you can experience perfect function, abundant health and well being.  The doctor inside you can accomplish just about anything as long as your internal power lines remain clear.
