Question 1: Will Chiropractic Help Me?
In a word, YES! But does this mean chiropractic will make you feel better with your particular health problem?
Your body is self-healing. This means your body can correct most of its own health problems. But this can only happen if your body is functioning normally. Your nervous system is the master controller of all function in your body. It is the job of your nerve system to see that everything is functioning properly and keeping you healthy.
So, When I see a Chiropractor will they help me feel better?
In a word, YES! But it is your body that ultimately heals you and helps you feel better. Chiropractors do not claim to heal you or cure you. Healing come from inside you.
It is your nerve system that controls the function of your body and ultimately your health. Any interference to your nerve system will effect the function of your body and therefore effect your body’s ability to keep you healthy.
In essence, only you can cure you. What the chiropractor does is to locate and remove interference to your nervous system and thus allow your body’s healing abilities to take over.
What is this Subluxation that I hear chiropractors talk about?
This is when there is an interference to your nervous system when bones in your spine (vertebrae) move out of alignment and apply pressure or irritate the nerves that come out from between the spinal vertebrae. This then causes the nerve system to malfunction. When your nerves malfunction, parts of your body will function at less than 100% of their abilities. This includes your organs since they are regulated by the nervous system as well!
When these vertebrae move out of place and cause interference to your nervous system, it is known as a Subluxation. Chiropractors seek to correct subluxations by a series of specific chiropractic adjustments to your spine. By correcting these subluxations you are allowing your nervous system to work normally and therefore allowing your body to heal itself.
So One More Time, Will Chiropractic Help Me?
In a word, YES! Chiropractic helps you by working to free your nervous system of interference from subluxations. This then allows your body’s own innate healing power to help heal you of whatever problems you may have.
Chiropractic actually helps you return to health by removing interference to your body’s nervous system. How much better you feel, or how much relief you get from any particular health problem depends on the length of time you have had your subluxations and your body’s healing capabilities.
Doctors of Chiropractic do not treat your pain, symptoms or diseases. Though most people come into the office with pain or some other symptom, what chiropractors do is take the stress out of your body and find the cause of what is causing the symptom. This enables your body’s own innate healing abilities, so that you can heal yourself. Pain goes away because your body is functioning properly, it is as simple as that!
Millions of people have found health after suffering with all kinds of problems. Your body will always be better off with a nervous system free of interference from subluxations.
I get it, I heal me! My body is a self healing mechanism, but is my body capable of helping me with my problem?
The human body is an amazing thing. It has capabilities far beyond what most people give it credit for. The ultimate answer of how healthy you can be rests entirely with your own body’s innate abilities.
Most people notice very good results under chiropractic care. This is because removing interference to your nerve system, by correcting subluxations, gives you the best chance for your body to heal itself so you can return to total good health.
Under chiropractic care, not only should you feel better, but with your nerve system functioning better, you should actually be healthier because your body is free of stress and working at its optimal level.
