The Way We’re Wired

The Way We’re Wired

  If you present with pain radiating down the left arm, any health care professional would recognize the urgency of addressing the source of the problem (i.e. your heart) vs. simply treating the symptom (the pain in your arm) - that mistake could kill you.  It's also the reason why Chiropractors focus on the source of your complaint and not necessarily where you feel it. Referred pain is a sensation that occurs distally from the main problem area.  Because of the vast network of nerves that travel from your brain to your body, it isn't uncommon for patients to feel their symptoms far away from where the actual problem is.  Subluxations (mechanical nerve interference) in the low back can radiate pain down the legs, subluxations in the neck can radiate pain to the arm.  Sometimes organic dysfunctions can originate from segmental mis-alignments in your spine as well. Ultimately, where you 'sense it' isn't necessarily where we need to 'fix it.'  If your Chiropractor works on a spinal region remote from the area of pain you're pointing to, it's not because we're indifferent to how you feel - it's because we understand how you're wired.

Aging Like a Fine Wine

Aging Like a Fine Wine

  There's an art to aging wine. The temperature of the cellar, the seal of the barrel, the exposure to proper elements - and of course, time. These factors combined, create the delicate balance needed to produce a classic vintage. Introduce stress and imbalance to that environment and you'll end up with an inferior, worthless product. . Now consider your aging process. Are you providing your body with the elements and internal environment needed to grow finer over time? What about the amount of quality, mental impulse your body is exposed to on a daily basis - are your cells and tissues bathed with an abundance of Life thriving nerve energy, or are the spinal branches of your nerve system choked by Subluxations, leaving those cells to prematurely age and wither on the vine? . You have a choice of taking care of your spine and aging like a fine wine or neglecting it and degenerating into a weaker, less palatable version of yourself. Vintage health is a product of choice nutrition, proper exercise and of course - regular Chiropractic care. You Never Know How Far Reaching...
