Most patients come to our practice with a very worn back. How many of you have ever had a spinal exam?
If we want to prevent cavities or tooth loss, we will have an annual check-up. The vast majority of people only get their spine checked when they are experiencing pain in that area. Even Chiropractic users are not aware of all the benefits of this treatment. Many people only turn to Chiropractic when they have back or neck pain, but it actually goes much further.
Chiropractic ensures that our body works at 100% of its capacity
The nervous system and the brain control all bodily functions. There is communication between the brain and every cell in the body. That information passes through the spine to the rest of the body (organs, muscles, cells, etc.).
A vertebral subluxation (vertebral displacement) can cause nerve interference, be the source of pain, wear and malfunction of the spine with loss of mobility.
The first vertebral displacements can occur the day we are born or during childbirth.
Only 10% of subluxations produce pain, they act silently, a fact that many are unaware of
If the body does not function at its maximum capacity, it makes it more susceptible to illness and therefore the body becomes sick or symptomatic. Therefore, doctors of Chiropractic not only pay attention to symptoms; but they also focus on what caused those symptoms, that is, they look for the origin of the problem that causes the subluxations and work on it.
Receiving chiropractic treatment prolongs the useful life of the spine and all joints, prevents progressive spinal degeneration to improve our quality of life and enhance our abilities.
Chiropractic is more than just a remedy for pain, it helps us prevent serious complications and gives us quality of life in the short, medium and long term.
