We’ve all heard the saying “prevention is the best medicine”.
And when we’re talking about our health it couldn’t be truer. But apart from eating well and exercising regularly what else can we do? If you’re really wanting to take charge, let’s have a look at why chiropractic care may be your answer. The best way to stay healthy is by having a strong immune system.
Chiropractic focuses on problems in your spine that interfere with your brain-body communication, resulting in disrupted nerve function and compromised health. Your brain and spine are your central nervous system. This system communicates with all the other systems, such as immune, muscular, endocrine (hormones), digestive, lymphatic (drainage), respiratory, reproductive, urinary and cardiovascular.
Your central nervous system communicates important information to keep all these systems functioning properly. Continuously sending and receiving information to understand what’s going on and what’s needed. Imagine having a conversation if the line isn’t clear. It’s hard work understanding what’s being said and often mistakes are made. Chiropractic helps your body communicate clearly, accurately and with no lag.
So by improving the health of your spine, you are by default improving the function of all your body systems. Imagine everything in your body communicating and functioning at an optimal level! Clients on wellness care often speak of a greater sense of well-being, more restful sleep, fewer injuries and of feeling happier in general.
Though chiropractic is commonly believed to be about back and neck problems, it’s about so much more than just treating pain. By optimising your body’s natural abilities your focus is on achieving great wellness rather than dealing with illness.
