Time to hit the reset button?
Chiropractic is a natural, noninvasive way of helping the body to function at its most optimal level.
May people think of Chiropractic as treatment for back pain, headaches or neck discomfort, in truth it is so much more. Chiropractic ensures your brain and body connection is optimal, allowing your brain to organise all cells and processes in your body accurately.
Without this organisation, your body is not functioning at optimal levels, and poor health will follow. The brain is the control system for the entire body. When there is interference, it alters the environment the brain perceives itself to be in. This consequently changes the adaption process the brain creates throughout the body.
Vertebral subluxation is a term used to describe mechanical pressure and irritation to spinal joints and nerves. Subluxation scrambles the neurological feedback loop by causing altered rhythms of neurological flow. The information your brain is now sending and receiving does not make sense and in turn, your body struggles to perform as it should.
Subluxations can be caused by numerous things including physical trauma, poor posture, increased chemical toxicity and mental / emotional stress. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to normalise spinal afferent/ efferent (send/receive) processes to their proper resting tone. This is like hitting the reset button on the computer when it is malfunctioning.
The computer is allowed to pause and reprocess itself. Chiropractic adjustments stop the body’s stress response which allows the body to reset itself and begin healing. Now that all the information is being sent and received accurately, your brain is better able to organize your body so that it can perform daily processes more effectively.
