Q: Why stay subluxation-free?
The chiropractic profession that was founded by Dr. DD Palmer in 1895 is based on the fact that internal structural distortions called subluxations can cause serious health problems.
A: Subluxations stress your nervous system and interfere with communication among your organs, glands, muscles, and other body parts – including your brain and your immune system.
Subluxations can be caused by any trauma: difficult birth, falls, accidents, emotional upset, chemical toxicity, overwork, or a combination of factors (i.e. physical, chemical, or emotional stress while you are tired, overworked, malnourished, etc.).
People sometimes ask how chiropractic can improve their health. The answers depend on whom you ask. For example, a woman now free of monthly pain may say, “Chiropractic is for menstrual problems.” A pregnant woman may say, “Chiropractic is for a comfortable pregnancy.”
A mother whose child was helped may say, “Chiropractic is for ear infections (or fevers or asthma or colic).” A teacher may say, “Chiropractic is for dyslexia, vision, and learning disorders.” Another person may say “Chiropractic is for headaches,” while still others may declare chiropractic is for backaches, hearing problems, disc problems, arthritis, high or low blood pressure, or a host of other problems.
Others use chiropractic as a way to maximize sports performance, improve overall health, and enhance balance, strength, and fitness.
In addition to all of the above, chiropractic can help everyone live a drug-free, healthy lifestyle.
Subluxations are epidemic in our society; most people have subluxations and don’t know it. For that reason, everyone needs periodic chiropractic checkups.
Q: Do I need to see a chiropractor for the rest of my life?
A: No, only for as long as you’d like to remain healthy.
That might seem like a coy answer but life is constantly giving us stress – whether it be from gravity, emotional issues, or toxins in the environment. In order to deal with these stresses, we need to be functioning at our optimum. A balanced body structure, free from nerve pressure (subluxations), is essential for you to live your fullest.
These stresses quietly build up. See your chiropractor for a “stress-release” from subluxations and you and your family will be healthier.
