No Spare Parts for the Spine

“Many of us take better care of our automobiles than we do our own bodies…yet the auto has replaceable parts.” BJ Palmer

You often have your car oil changed and tires changed, but how often do you look at your own body. Most people have their teeth looked at and sometimes a physical, but how often are you having your spine looked at?? Did you know your spine houses your nervous system which controls how your body functions. If something is blocking the nerve flow in your body at the spinal level, you will eventually start to notice things aren’t working like they used to. Your knees may start to hurt, your hips may start hurting, your low back may hurt or be stiff, headaches begin, you may get stomach aches, blurry vision, and so much more!!! If you have any of these symptoms or before you have any of these symptoms, have your spine evaluated today by a chiropractor.

Let’s Break It Down

Subluxation. It is a common term we use here in the office, but what does it mean to you??

Let’s break it down…

Sub- less or low

lux- Life

ation- action or process

If you have a SUBLUXATION in your spine then you have less life in the processes of your body. The best way to get your body functioning better and increase the life in your body is to get adjusted by a chiropractor! It’s our specialty!!

Why the heck do i need an examination before treating???

A women who called us this week was upset that we would need to perform an examination before treating her for the first time. So why should we require an examination before treatment? An examination helps us know what to treat and how to treat. We need to be able to diagnose the condition and rule out any red flags (potential cancer, fracture, etc.). It also gives us a baseline to see if our treatment is effective.

Now, if you had recently been in an auto accident and were suffering from neck pain…would you really want to be treated by a doctor without an examination first?? Nope, that would be malpractice.

Or how about one of my younger patients who came in the other day with pain in his hand. I adjust fingers and hands all the time. Well it’s a good thing I did an exam first and decided to send him away for an x-ray without treating that area. Because it ended up being broken. And we shouldn’t be adjusting broken bones right?

Being a Couch Potato Changes Your Brain

It may be raining these days, but new study shows that we NEED to Get Out and Get Active!!! Study shows that inactivity changes the brain….for the worse. In a study with rats, the neurons of inactive rate were overstimulating the sympathetic nervous system. “In effect, these neurons had changed in ways that made them likely to overstimulate the sympathetic nervous system, potentially increasing blood pressure and contributing to the development of heart disease.” So get out there and MOVE!
