Learn why it is important to take responsibility of your health by preserving your nervous system
What is Optimal Health?
The definition of health is optimal FUNCTION. When we are functioning at our best, we are healthy. Health is not based on how we FEEL, or merely the absence of symptoms. There are many sedentary and obese people out there who may not feel any pain, but they definitely are not healthy and functioning at a high level. If health is our most important asset, then why would we base our health on the false sense of how we feel, instead of how we are functioning?
How do I know if Chiropractic can help me?
When you come into the Day Wellness office, our first goal is to see if we can help you. We get this information by our consultation, chiropractic examination and digital posture analysis, any necessary x-ray images, and our orthopedic examination. From this information, if we find that you have damage to the spine and nervous system, then we can help you. If the problem is coming from somewhere else, we will make sure we refer you to the proper medical professional that can help you.
Why is Chiropractic care important?
If we find from our examination and other objective data that you have damage to a certain part of your spine and nervous system, is it possible for the organs supplied by the damaged area to be healthy?
For example, if our low back is out of alignment causing the exiting nerves to be irritated and compressed, is it possible to have a healthy colon, liver, kidney, bladder, reproductive system, uterus or prostate? Of course not. Even if someone buys all organic produce, if their colon isn’t healthy, will they be able to get the most out of their food? No.
The crazy part about this is if there is damage to these organs, you won’t notice or feel it. The top 2 killers in the US is heart disease and cancer. The most common symptom of heart disease is a heart attack or stroke. People find out they have advanced staged cancer all the time and don’t even realize it. Obviously, if you were to wait for your first symptom of either of these diseases it could be to late. Similarly, if we wait to correct our spine after we feel symptoms like pain, the damage may already be severe.
With Chiropractic comes HEALTH!
Once the damage to the nervous system and spine is fixed and stabilized, then optimal health and function will come. Yes, you will feel better. More importantly, however, your body will function better. You will be healthier than you have ever been before, and have a higher quality of life. You will have fixed and preserved your #1 asset, your HEALTH.
