Talking through Analogies- Purpose of Chiropractic Care

Your nervous system is the most important system of you body and is composed of the brain, spinal cord and the nerves that travel to all the organs and tissues of your body. It is an intricate system, like the telephone communication system, you know when we used landline phones.  There is a main powerhouse, which would be the brain, where all signals are interrupted and sent to their destinations.  Then there are the telephone lines that go to your house.  This would be the spinal column, the fast and strong system that transports signals between the organs and the brain.  And lastly we would have the telephones, or nerves, where the messages are heard and said.   If there is a miscommunication along this system, then we have issues, causing dis-ease or dysfunction, and eventually disease if it is not fixed.

For example, you excitedly take a sip of your Starbucks coffee and it is super hot.  Abruptly, you would end that sip and the enjoyment would be lost.  You would spit it out or just be frustrated that you had burned your tongue knowing everything you would eat that day would have no taste.  What if your continued to drink that coffee that was too hot.  You would burn your mouth and your throat, to the extent of blisters and burns and permanent damage!  This is what life would be like without your nervous system. OK, so we like having great communication between our body and our brain.

As a chiropractor, this is my job.  I find where the miscommunication along the spine and use the tools in my tool belt to remove the errors so your body can do its thing.  “The power that made the body, heals the body.”  We have the tools to heal our bodies.  I appreciate the hope in that. I truly believe we have a lot of control of our own health.  If we have issues, we can often help our bodies by removing the stresses, which is what I do with chiropractic care, and adding the good things to heal.  Chiropractic care is for everybody.  We do not discriminate.  Anyone who has a nervous system should receive chiropractic care to increase their potential to health.  That’s just the way it is.

In Health,
