The Simple Theory of Chiropractic

If we’re thinking about mastering the basics of health and wellness, one of the most important factors is to make sure you body is functioning properly in the first place. You don’t build a house on an unstable foundation and you can’t achieve true health with one either. The nervous system literally provides the foundation for good health. The brain and the spinal nerves are the master controllers of the body, ensuring optimal brain-body connection and communication. Every muscle, organ, gland and system in your body is controlled by your nervous system, so it makes sense that by ensuring that your nervous system is functioning at it’s best, you are also ensuring that your organs, muscles and systems have the best opportunity to function at their best too.

As you know, your nervous system is surrounded and protected by your skull and spinal column. If the individual bones of your spine get misaligned or stop moving properly (subluxated) then they can prevent the proper communication between your brain and body and lead to health problems and potentially some discomfort as well.

Chiropractic care is all about maintaining a healthy spine and nerve system to ensure optimal brain-body communication.  Ideally this would begin before problems arise, but understandably it is more often that people seek chiropractic care when these sorts of issues start to interfere with their everyday life. A common question we get asked is what might have caused subluxations in the first place, and to sum it up it’s basically any type of stress (physical, chemical or emotional) that your body was unable to adapt to. Common examples would be a trip or fall, repetitive poor postures, work stress, lack of exercise, poor food choices, or it could even be traced right back to the birth process (no matter how natural it might have been).

So if you’re looking for something that’s easy to do and has the ability to help your body heal and function at it’s best, chiropractic care is an excellent addition to your wellness plan.

How often do you need to get checked?

The beauty of Chiropractic is that it really is catered to the individual. Your health goals, your current health status and the level of stress in your day-to-day life are going to influence the frequency of your chiropractic check-ups.

In general, there is typically a more intensive phase of care initially which serves to restore proper function to your spine and to enhance your brain-body connection and this is largely influenced by your current health status and whether you have days, weeks or years of dysfunction to correct. After that, it can be as simple as getting checked every 4, 6 or even 8 weeks, depending on your stress levels, your job, your recreational activities and your other daily health habits.
