The allopathic model of health practice teaches us that if something in our body hurts or is not functioning properly, we fix it by taking medicine or having surgery. But why should we wait until something is completely broken before addressing the situation? What if we maintained all systems of our body to where it never got sick or had dysfunction?
You regularly visit the dentist to clean your teeth and check for problems before pain has you crawling into the office. You visit your eye doctor to check that you don’t have early onset of glaucoma. You have blood tests performed to check in on your thyroid, sugar and cholesterol levels. But how do you check in on and maintain your nervous system? The nervous system is the only system in the body that directly affects every other system. It controls every function of the body.
Enter chiropractic. We strive to maintain your health and wellness and address situations before they cause pain and dysfunction. A subluxation or misalignment in the spine can interfere with proper nervous system function. This can cause interference with information that is transmitted along nerves and spinal cord. A chiropractor is specially trained to locate subluxations and safely remove them, thus maintaining your nervous system.
“The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human
frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
