You're right, your pain could be coming from a muscle. It could also be coming from a joint, a ligament, a tendon, some fascia, a bone, a blood vessel or just about any deep tissue. In reality, 'classifying' your pain adds nothing to your healing process, but having a clear nerve system does.
You can't sleep, your energy levels are low and you're finding it harder to make it through your day. The specialists insist there's nothing wrong, but you innately feel like something's out of tune. Maybe it's time to call the Chiropractor.
Second floor - sinuses, ears, nose. Third floor floor - lungs, heart, liver. If you were a mental impulse and the spine were an elevator, every floor you select would lead you along a nerve path to a different section of body - and if the elevator doors failed to open properly, you'd be trapped!
Remember the lead character in Goldilocks and the Three Bears? She didn't settle for too hot, or too cold – too hard, or too soft. She kept trying until she found what was JUST RIGHT. When it comes to fighting disease, your body innately strives for the same thing.
We all have excuses for not getting to the Chiropractor more often - too many appointments, too many responsibilities, too many 'you fill in the blanks.' You're the golden goose and you have little time and LOTS of people to keep happy. But what you don't realize is those 'I'm too busy' excuses are the EXACT reasons why you need to take better care of your spine and Nerve System.
If you jump on the scale after every healthy meal you ate, looking for an immediate change, you're going to drive yourself nuts. Doing good things for your body is good - but those good things may not register noticeable changes right away. The same goes for your adjustments.
In its heyday, the space shuttle would generate nearly 8 million pounds of thrust just to lift itself off the launch pad into the atmosphere. Once beyond the earth’s gravitational pull, it didn’t require as much effort to stay in space and could effortlessly cruise at 17,500 mph with a fraction of that power. The same can be said for your Chiropractic care plan.
There’s a lot to love about Chiropractic - the science of nerve function, the art of correcting posture and spinal alignment. But the best part is the philosophy that gives meaning to it all.
Principle #24 in Chiropractic states that the innate healing ability within us is limited by the matter it has to work with. In other words, your body's ability to repair itself is only as good at the building material at its disposal - the right nutrients, DNA, etc. But healing limitations don't only come from matter.
“The Packers never lost a game... we just ran out of time." - Vince Lombardi. Coach Lombardi's quote sums up his unwavering belief in his team's ability to win every game, if given enough time to execute their winning game plan. Chiropractors hold a similar, unwavering belief in your body's innate ability to heal.
