Dr. Monica’s overview of Chiropractic and it’s amazing potential for your family!

Let’s touch on a few of the most common questions we get about chiropractic in general, so that you can have an understanding of what we do, who we can help and how it could benefit your family.

What is Chiropractic?

Chiropractic is a science of all things natural and works with your body’s natural ability to heal. Chiropractic adjustments allow your body to relieve stress on your nervous system so your brain and body can communicate freely.

Many people define chiropractic by the technique they’ve experienced, such as “twisting and popping” or “getting cracked”. But did you know that there are over 200 chiropractic techniques out there? Every chiropractor has a unique way of practicing. In our office, we use our skill, our hands and a very gentle tool called the integrator when we adjust.

How can chiropractic be so effective for such an array of ages, symptoms and people?

There is a common thread between babies, toddlers, kids, teens and adults. That common thread is the nervous system!

You experience your entire life through or nervous system – sight, sound, taste, touch and smell are all perceived by your nervous system. Of course, you want your nervous system to be working at its best so you can experience all that life has to offer!

Unfortunately, you experience an abundance of stress on a daily basis that interferes with your nervous system’s ability to take in the world! The stresses you experience on a daily basis are physical, chemical and emotional.

  • Physical: This is what you put your body through, such as posture, workouts, falls, sleep habits, bumps, bruises and accidents.
  • Chemical: This is anything you put on, around or in your body. The big player for this is your nutrition. Some other key players are makeup, household cleaners, medications, body products and being around second hand smoke.
  • Emotional: This is from how you talk to yourself, the relationships you are a part of and what you are feeling on a day to day basis.

Your body can only take on so much stress. When too much stress comes your way at once, the body will create a subluxation (or an interference) in the brain-body communication to protect itself. This protective measure is great for only a short period of time. The problem sets in when that subluxation gets stuck. A stuck subluxation doesn’t allow your brain to talk to the your body like it should!

When there are an abundance of subluxations in your body, it may feel like your body is at war with itself and symptoms start to pop up. This creates a vicious cycle of being stuck in a stressed out state, more brain-body disconnect and more symptoms.

How does Chiropractic help?

Chiropractors are trained to find those subluxations and correct them with adjustments. Our adjustments are a gentle, effective way of releasing the stress that is stuck in that area so your body can release that subluxation. When the subluxation is released, your nervous system naturally moves out of the stressed mode into a healing, relaxed mode.

When you are in a healing, relaxed mode; your brain and body have a fast and efficient communication flow, which allows for proper self-regulation. When your body can properly self regulate, then it can do what it was intended to do and HEAL!

Identifying, adjusting and correcting those subluxations is what allows us to help a vast array of people, ages and symptoms.

Chiropractic has been such a game changer for people that have tried it all with little to no success. This is how we can see babies, kids, teens, adults and expecting mamas see tremendous results no matter what they come in with.

Don’t let this be the missing link in your health and healing journey. Chiropractic is a gentle, safe and effective way your your family to heal and thrive together!
