Your Nerve System is the ultimate sponge, soaking up all the experiences, sensations and stresses you encounter every day. Like a sponge, it can only absorb so much before it becomes over-saturated and spills stress into your body. The result… PAIN, SICKNESS and WEAK PERFORMANCE!
“Once you start, you'll have to keep going." It's the oldest cliché you'll hear about Chiropractic from those who've never given it a chance. Yet many of those same naysayers would gladly fill a prescription for OxyContin® or Vicadin® to relieve their chronic pain. Well, consider this.
You wouldn’t call the fire department to blow out a candle, or an electrician to change a light bulb. Those are simple tasks you can handle on your own. Yet every day, people call on a specialist or expert for healing a problem their ‘doctor on the inside’ could easily take care of.
If Life was a game of Jenga, stress would be the act of sliding out one puzzle piece after another, until your entire 'tower of health' topples over.
If the healing process can be equated to restoring a house, imagine what it would be like trying to perform renovations during a Cat 3 Hurricane. This is how the constant barrage of external physical, chemical and emotional stresses can negatively affect your body's natural building process - and no one is immune to it.
Ever feel 'wound up' from the stresses of life? You feel tight and distorted, like a rubber band that's been twisted to the brink of snapping? That tension you're feeling isn't in your head... it's actually in your Nerve System.
What would happen if you didn't clean your house for a few weeks? Your furniture would get pretty dusty wouldn't it? The same can be said for you, if the dirt in your Nerve System isn't cleaned up on a regular basis.
There's a vast difference between playing chess vs. playing checkers. In checkers, the best moves yield immediate results... a piece is jumped or a king is crowned. With chess however, the best moves aren't made for simple instant gratification, but well thought out for the benefits they will reap many moves ahead. Chiropractic shares a similar modus operandi.
You’ve tried stretching, went to physical therapy and faithfully did all the exercises they prescribed. But still your spine feels tight, rigid and locked up. In your case, Chiropractic may hold the right key.
Remember the days of pulling an 'all nighter' for a major exam - trying to cram an entire semester's worth of work in one, non-stop studying marathon? Well, you can't get away with that when it comes to your Health and Chiropractic.
