How does chiropractic work? How is chiropractic different from other manual professions? Why should I choose chiropractic? Do any of these questions sound familiar to you? A common problem, even though chiropractic has been around for more than a century already, is that people (like you) don’t know what chiropractic does and why it is so important.
It is never great when you try to make a choice for the health of you or your family, and you do not exactly know what it is you are getting into. Before I dive into how amazing chiropractic is, because it is! Let’s talk about what chiropractic is not. It does not cure your pain or disease, it does not alleviate your symptoms. Well then what does it do? Great question, it empowers your body to better regulate its own function by correcting interference in your nervous system and improving the function of your spine.
This will give you the potential to be at your best regardless of the situation. “If you sit a lot (for work or at home), we will help you be the best sitter with a well corrected spine, if you smoke we will help you be the best smoker with a well corrected spine” says Justin (owner and chiropractor at The Right Chiro). Your nervous system, and body know better than we do what it should be doing in any given situation, and we help free its ability to do that best.
Allow me to show you what happens on a physical, chemical and mental level.
The majority of proprioceptive information and energy that your brain feeds off comes from your spine. This means when it is not functioning the way it should it steals both of these important nutrients from your brain, but when it is corrected and working the way it should it feeds your brain. This allows for the best flow of information to and from your body so that the right information is taken to the right place at the right time.
Here we see 3 things happening.
When you are corrected your brain is brought into the present moment. It is a common trend for you to live more in the past or the future, which brings with it more emotional stress creating more often than not (because there are positive thoughts too :P) either depression or anxiety. In the present your body and nervous system can better focus on what is needed to help you function better on a more complete level.
All of these changes create better function for your body, and a greater capacity to adapt and heal. Basically, it ensures that when you feel at your best, that your body is actually working at its best. “Commonly, clients will say how they cannot believe that every part of their body is functioning better. From their ability to sleep, to less heartburn, less problems with their period, and focusing and productivity all improve with regular chiropractic care.” says Annika.
It is then easy to understand the answer to “What chiropractic does to your bodY?”. Chiropractic gives your body the ability and you the opportunity to function better on every level of function and feeling it can. This in turn causes an exponential increase in your body’s ability to heal itself, which will in turn lead to you and or your family experiencing less pain, symptoms and disease in general and better health and living.
