In todays world, we are bombarded by physical, mental, and emotional stress on a daily basis. This stress can come from work, children, physical activity, financial issues, and other daily obligations and it takes a toll on our bodies. Inability to adapt to stress can lead to; neck pain, back pain, digestive issues, degeneration, blood pressure issues, and many disease processes that are attributed to; a sedentary lifestyle, poor nutritional choices, and an overall decrease in health and wellness. Chiropractic care is a form of health care that is proactive and vitalistic. It focusses on improving the structure and function of the spine, accompanying musculoskeletal system, and nervous system (see about us for more info about chiropractic care).
When it comes to life performance, chiropractic care can help improve your ability to carry out daily activities and work, improve your ability to lead an active lifestyle, decrease neck and back pain, improve posture, increase range of motion, and improve your ability to deal with these stressors. The mechanism in which this occurs is simple. When the spine is aligned properly, there is decreased muscular tension in the body and decreased inflammation in the spinal joints. Improved structure of the spine leads to an improvement in musculoskeletal system function.
Having the spine properly aligned not only improves spinal structure but it also decreases tension and stress on the nervous system (see about us for more info). The spine protects parts of our nervous system and it is vital to have the spine in proper alignment so as to not interfere with nervous system function. When spinal joints are misaligned, those misalignments and accompanying inflammation can interfere with the nervous system. We call this a subluxation. Structurally it can increase tension through the entire nervous system as well as interfere with individual nerve impulse transmission (see about us for more info). With regular chiropractic care, your body is more equipped to deal with life as well as having; improved functioning of the entire body, increased energy, better immune function, and many other benefits that improve our daily lives. It truly gets your body functioning at 100% of its ability so that optimum performance in life can be attained. Make an appointment today to learn more!
