Did you know that Chiropractic care is essential in achieving your body’s overall health and wellness? Generally, we may think that we are living a healthy life because of how we feel. However, the most important part of living a healthy life is not defined by how we feel; it is defined by how well our body functions.
Your brain and spinal cord are what control each of our body’s functions; organs, limbs, hormones and immune function. Your spinal column is in essence, a superhighway that your nerves navigate to reach each part of your body. This is a critical function to achieve health – that superhighway must be maintained not only for us to be healthy, but also to be strong.
So how does Chiropractic care come into place for achieving our optimal health and wellness? Chiropractic care helps us achieve total health because it focuses on optimizing the health of your spinal column. When your nervous system has a well maintained superhighway (your spinal column), it is able send uninterrupted messages from your brain to your organs and the rest of your body. When uninterrupted messages are received, each part of your body is able to function to its optimal level and not at a reduced percentage.
When our spinal column is not well maintained it is more like a superhighway riddled with road blocks and potholes, the outcome is often the sensation of pain and it can be present in just about any area of our body. You might feel pain in your side, your neck, back or even in your feet. Sometime you might even feel pain in what feels more internal like an organ. Although the area of your pain may be felt elsewhere, pain a very most common sign of a spinal issue in your body. This tells us that the message from your brain to that area of your body is not being received at 100%, hence the organ or body part is not able to function at 100%. This is what eventually leads to pain, and it should not be ignored.

Then, he uses the non-invasive adjustment technique; Torque Release, to help to restore the proper position of your spinal bones. Additionally it also helps those spinal bones to move correctly with proper motion versus cracking, pinching or locking. The result is that you will have increased function, proper healing and less pain in that area.
