6 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT CHIROPRACTIC
1. CHIROPRACTIC CARE IS WORLDWIDE
This treatment is hardly limited. There are over 100,000 chiropractors and more than 40 chiropractic schools in over 16 countries and hence the popularity of chiropractic will only keep growing.
2. THE SPINE IS THE MIND’S ‘EYE’
Your brain uses your spine to ‘see’ what is happening in your body. If the spine isn’t properly aligned or when the bones in your spine don’t move properly the muscles closest to the spine cannot function well. These muscles and their masses of motion sensors cannot communicate important information back to the brain and as a result, your body cannot see what is going on in your arms and legs.
3. THE SPINE AFFECTS THE WAY YOU PERCEIVE AND RESPOND TO SENSORY INFORMATION
Sensory information is the information your body perceives such as smell, hearing, vision, and touch. When the spinal segment doesn’t move well it is called a vertebral subluxation. Chiropractors understand that vertebral subluxation may influence the way you perceive and respond to sensory information.
4. CHIROPRACTIC CARE ISN’T JUST FOR PAIN
Most people seek out chiropractic care for back or neck pain but this treatment is also helpful for treating various other conditions such as headaches, arm and leg pain.
5. IT PROVIDES CARE FOR THE BODY’S NERVOUS SYSTEM
The brain links to the spine and the spine links to each and every individual body part via the nervous system. When chiropractors restore function to the spine they also improve communication channels between the brain and nervous system.
6. CHIROPRACTIC CARE IS FOR PEOPLE OF ALL AGES
It is a treatment option that is suitable for people of all ages. It is best to get yourself or your family members checked as soon as possible in order to maintain a healthy spine.
