Looking for Health in All the Wrong Places

by Chiropractors Brighton on June 18, 2009

Have you ever lost your keys, misplaced your glasses or mislaid your wallet? I am guessing you tried to think back to the last time you had your keys, wore your glasses or used your wallet, didn’t you?

Knowing where to look is the fastest way to find something. The same thing is true of recovering your health. We’re able to help so many people because we know where to look. One of the key tenets of chiropractic is that health is our natural state.

Health is normal. When someone isn’t healthy, our first inclination is to find out what could be interfering with this natural ability. Rather than focusing on the particular symptom, we look for what might be the underlying cause of the symptom. We often find a disturbance in the controlling or regulating impulses of the nervous system. When communications between the brain and the body are impaired, this situation can produce a myriad of conditions that go by thousands of different names.

The most common source of compromise in brain/body communication is from the moving bones of the spine. Individual segments covering the information superhighway of your nervous system can “get locked up” and irritate nearby nerves. Or more precisely, subluxation.

Migraine Headaches? Look to the spine.

Leg pain? Look to the spine.

Neck pain? You get the idea.

Does that mean chiropractic can cure everything? Of course not!   Doctors of any kind never cure anything.  Your body does the healing. To regain your health though, Chiropractic is a great place to start looking!

Do you know someone we can help?
