Watch Your Gauge

Watch Your Gauge

I’m forever reminded '…don't let the gas gauge get to E.’  Fill up when it hits a quarter left because you don't want to run out of fuel when you need it the most - like when on the highway with a car full of kids.

Likewise, you don't want to let your 'Chiropractic gas needle' get to E before you come in for an adjustment.  Some patients feel then can go several weeks or months without an adjustment because they're cruising along, just feeling fine.  And it's true.  Based on your health, lifestyle and activity levels adjustments can hold for quite a long time - but not forever.  Unfortunately, 9 times out of 10, the clients who fail to gauge their adjustments properly show up with some ache or pain as a reminder they've waited too long.  And that's not how maintenance works.

Maintaining a healthy spine is a proactive act... something you do regularly not based on how you feel, but based on what you need to stay on the road of Life.  The next time you wait too long for your next adjustment and experience the hurt, consider filling your Chiropractic tank WAY before it gets seriously low again.

Like a Fine Wine

Like a Fine Wine

There's an art to aging wine.  The temperature of the cellar, the seal of the barrel, the exposure to proper elements - and of course, time.  These factors combined, create the delicate balance needed to produce a classic vintage.  Introduce stress and imbalance to that environment and you'll end up with an inferior, worthless product.

Now consider your aging process.  Are you providing your body with the elements and internal environment needed to grow finer over time?  What about the amount of quality, mental impulse your body is exposed to on a daily basis - are your cells and tissues bathed with an abundance of Life thriving nerve energy, or are the spinal branches of your nerve system choked by Subluxations, leaving those cells to prematurely age and wither on the vine?

You have a choice of taking care of your spine and aging like a fine wine or neglecting it and degenerating into a weaker, less palatable version of yourself.  Vintage health is a product of choice nutrition, proper exercise and of course - regular Chiropractic care.

Playing with Stress

Playing with Stress

According to Dr. Hans Selye, the father of stress and disease theories, "...it's not stress that kills, it's our reaction to it." In essence, your health is influenced more by your inability to manage the tensions of Life rather than avoiding them all together.

Our bodies take external stresses, (like money fears, conflict with family members or disappointments) and internalize them like a smoldering fire that slowly consumes our health. Smaller flames can be managed if dealt with in healthful manners, like routinely exercising and meditating. But failure to address those smaller flames causes them to grow out of control... eventually burning down the most important structure you'll ever live in - your body.

It's impossible to extinguish all the stress in your Life. Something negative in your outer environment will always threaten your internal one. The best you can do is to mitigate the influence - and one great way is to keep your Nerve System strong and clear with regular chiropractic care to avoid getting burned.

If You Think It’s a Muscle…

If You Think It’s a Muscle…

You're right, your pain could be coming from a muscle.  It could also be coming from a joint, a ligament, a tendon, some fascia, a bone, a blood vessel or just about any deep tissue.  In reality, 'classifying' your pain adds nothing to your healing process, but having a clear nerve system does.

Tissues devoid of animating Life cannot repair or heal.  Cut into a LIFELESS steak (a muscle), and it will never mend.  Injure a LIVE body part however, and it will reorganize itself successfully as long as it receives 100% innate intelligence from the nerve system - regardless of what sensation you feel.  When that power of Life flows - you heal.  When it trickles - you don't. When it stops - you die.

As Chiropractors, we have compassion for any discomfort you present with.  But realize, while naming your 'tissue of pain' (diagnosis) may provide some peace of mind... detecting and correcting the cause (adjustment) will restore your health.  For us, what hurts is not nearly important as what's Subluxated.

Out of Tune

Out of Tune

You can't sleep, your energy levels are low and you're finding it harder to make it through your day. The specialists insist there's nothing wrong, but you innately feel like something's out of tune. Maybe it's time to call the Chiropractor.

D.D. Palmer, the Father of Chiropractic, recognized that repetitive physical, chemical and emotional stress can alter the normal 'tone' within a person's Nerve System (a.k.a. Subluxation). This persistent irritation can lead to poor physical, mental and emotional performance.  The solution?  Restore normal tone to the Nerve System with specific, Chiropractic adjustments and better health will naturally follow!

Health is the 'music' that plays when all your cells, tissues and organs vibrate perfectly in unison – orchestrated by a finely tuned Nerve System.  If you're feeling sluggish, weak and tired, a trip to the Chiropractor may just be the thing YOU need to get back in key.

Pushing Your Buttons

Pushing Your Buttons

Second floor - sinuses, ears, nose. Third floor floor - lungs, heart, liver.  If you were a mental impulse and the spine were an elevator, every floor you select would lead you along a nerve path to a different section of body - and if the elevator doors failed to open properly, you'd be trapped!

In 1921, Henry Winsor, MD studied the levels (or floors) nerves emerged from the spine and the effect blocking those nerves had on the organs to which they terminated. He discovered that fixed, arthritic and misaligned vertebral levels corresponded to a variety of chronic disease processes in the body... to the extent where Dr. Winsor proclaimed "...disease appears to precede old age and to cause it. The spine becomes stiff first and old age follows. Therefore, we may say a man is as old as his spine."

Adjustments to specific vertebral levels aren't just beneficial for tight spines and sore joints. The neurotrophic (nerve nourishing) effects of proper spinal alignment have a critical effect on your internal organs as well.  Those impulses need a clear, unfettered path to flow through. We agree with Dr. Windsor... By keeping those pathways clear with regular chiropractic care, your health will surely be going up!
