Healing in a Hurricane

Healing in a Hurricane

If the healing process can be equated to restoring a house, imagine what it would be like trying to perform renovations during a Cat 3 Hurricane.  This is how the constant barrage of external physical, chemical and emotional stresses can negatively affect your body's natural building process - and no one is immune to it.

When asked what the most important contribution Chiropractic has to a person's health, Dr. Thurman Fleet responded "adaptation." Adaptation is the ability to face external stress and respond to it in a way that protects your internal physiology and leaves you stronger for it. Your Nerve System holds the responsibility of assessing the outer world and constantly adjusting your inner world to survive in it. It's the 'storm wall' that stands between you and Mother Nature's wrath.

Your ability to withstand wave after wave of daily stress ultimately determines your health. Regular Chiropractic care maintains the nerve strength you need to stand firm in a world that is always trying to break you down.  With a properly conditioned Nerve System, you'll be strong enough to handle whatever 'weather' Life throws at you.

Rights and Responsibilities

Rights and Responsibilities

You’re no doubt familiar with the basic human rights penned by Thomas Jefferson.   Our Creator did indeed bless us with Life, freedom and the ability to pursue happiness.  But when it comes to your healthcare, it’s important not to confuse rights with responsibilities.  For example,

  • While you have the RIGHT to eat at any restaurant that suits your taste - You are RESPONSIBLE for choosing healthy items on the menu to fuel your body properly.
    .
  • While you have the RIGHT to sit on the couch and binge watch Netflix all day - You are RESPONSIBLE for exercising regularly, so your body doesn’t become lethargic and sickly.
    .
  • While you have the RIGHT to go bungee jumping, ride roller coasters or take up cage fighting - You are RESPONSIBLE for keeping your spine in alignment (free of subluxation interference), so your nerve system can clearly orchestrate the all the physiological processes needed to keep you alive.

Yes we all have the unalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  But only YOU can be held responsible for preserving and maintaining your health.  Yes, your Creator gave you the breath of Life, a body and an innate intelligence to govern them all.  But it’s up to YOU - not your insurance company, your primary physician or your political party - to guard them well.

Unwind with Chiropractic

Unwind with Chiropractic

Ever feel 'wound up' from the stresses of life? You feel tight and distorted, like a rubber band that's been twisted to the brink of snapping?  That tension you're feeling isn't in your head... it's actually in your Nerve System.

Physical, chemical and emotional stresses of life can wind up negative energy in your Nerve System, gradually throwing your spine and your health out of balance.  Chiropractors refer to this as being in a 'Subluxated' state. If this pent up nerve stress isn’t released, it builds silently until it ultimately manifests as a physical illness in your body.  The solution... release the tension in the rubber band before it breaks.

Chiropractors care gently removes stress from your spine and spinal cord before a critical failure can occur.  In doing so, you improve the odds of your body working to its potential over the course of your life. This is one 'rubber band' you need to keep untangled.

Wash Me…

Wash Me…

What would happen if you didn't clean your house for a few weeks?  Your furniture would get pretty dusty wouldn't it?  The same can be said for you, if the dirt in your Nerve System isn't cleaned up on a regular basis.

The 'dirt' we're talking about is Vertebral Subluxation (a Chiropractic term for nerve interference).  If not cleared regularly, stress from Subluxations can pile up in your nerves, causing sleep disturbances, chronic fatigue, lowered resistance, persistent pain or even anxiety.

People who keep their Nerve System 'tidy' with regular Chiropractic care report having more energy, better recovery from injuries and an improved state of mind.  If your health isn't as clean as you'd like it to be, maybe it’s time to dust the stress off with a good adjustment.  Get to your Chiropractor today!

Checkers vs. Chess

Checkers vs. Chess

There's a vast difference between playing chess vs. playing checkers. In checkers, the best moves yield immediate results... a piece is jumped or a king is crowned. With chess however, the best moves aren't made for simple instant gratification, but well thought out for the benefits they will reap many moves ahead. Chiropractic shares a similar modus operandi.

Today, instant relief comes in the form of a pain relievers, muscle relaxers and cortisone shots. And yes, those 'moves' can bring instant gratification... but does a temporary patch contribute anything to your best health? Chiropractic care, on the other hand, makes moves (adjustments) that provide natural relief AND sets you up for improvements in other areas of your health down the road. One spinal move today sets up a cascade of positive physiological changes you'll experience in your body for years to come.

Winning health strategies aren't founded on quick fixes that make you feel comfortable in the moment, but on smart actions you take now that will contribute to your wellness in the future.  Every chiropractic adjustment removes a piece of 'dis-ease' off the board - clearing a path to your desired health goals. When it comes to chiropractic, we don't think checkers... we think chess.

The Right Key

The Right Key

You’ve tried stretching, went to physical therapy and faithfully did all the exercises they prescribed.  But still your spine feels tight, rigid and locked up.  In your case, Chiropractic may hold the right key.

Unlike the gross manipulative therapy done by PT's and osteopaths, or the general movement offered by prescribed exercises, specific Chiropractic adjustments ONLY target the parts of your spine that need work.  Specificity is the key to results - knowing what spinal segments to move, when to move them and how much force to use is paramount to getting a favorable outcome… and that requires a skill set taught only in a reputable Chiropractic College.

You wouldn't use a sledge hammer to bust open your front door if the right key was handy to unlock it safely.  The same goes for your spine.  When it comes to unlocking a tough, painful back it's best to seek the advice of a master spinal locksmith (a DC) who knows what they're doing.  In the long run you'll save time, money and frustration hiring the right person for the job.
