There is a distinct Chiropractic view of health and life that states that health is much more than just how you feel, it’s how you function. Health is a state in which your body can express 100% of your human potential. Where your cells, tissues, organs, and systems are functioning as close to 100% as possible, 100% of the time.
There is an innate intelligence in all living things that is described as a principle of organization that results in the ability of a living organism to organize and reorganize its physiology in order to adapt and survive in an ever-changing environment (internal and external). It is the expression of the forces created by this innate intelligence through our nerve system that allows our body to perform at 100%.
The expression of this innate intelligence through the matter of our body is the Chiropractic meaning of LIFE (not just health).
The quality of your life is directly proportional to the ability of your nerve system to express this intelligence through your body without interference to this process. Your nerve system is protected by bone — twenty-four vertebrae protect the spinal cord and spinal nerves. When stress (physical, chemical, emotional) overwhelms our body’s resistance, it causes the spinal bones to lose their normal alignment and function; this disrupts the nerve system’s ability to express your innate intelligence properly, resulting in a loss of the expression of health and life in the body. We call this a vertebral subluxation.
How well is your nerve system performing? Well, you can’t know by just how you feel, which is why you need to be checked by a chiropractor.
Chiropractic restores normal alignment and function in your spine, allowing your nerve system to function as best as possible, so that you can express your health and LIFE to your fullest potential.
Chiropractic, in this office, has always been and always will be, about allowing your innate intelligence to better express itself through you nerve system. This results in a greater potential for restoring health and proper function to the body, and not treating back pain, neck pain, or other symptoms. Chiropractic provides a better opportunity to create well-being, improve your quality of living, and improve your performance at every level.
Be sure to have your family checked today so you can all begin to experience more LIFE.share
