Looking For The Quick Fix From Out Of Pain?

Ever hear of that magic adjustment that your friend received and was out of pain for years?  10 out of 10 the adjustment is going to deliver healing capabilities.  As long as the adjustment was specific and direct there is no other option for the body but to heal.  The problem with this dilemma is, the education and doctors report that needs to be delivered.  Truth be told there is really no such thing as a true “quick fix.”  Many chiropractic patients only come to get out of pain.  While a noble cause and gesture from your chiropractor, you need to understand what our (chiropractor) true purpose really is.

I Am Out Of Pain So I Am Out Of Chiropractic

Some people think that only coming to the chiropractor is when you are in pain.  This is treating chiropractic like a ER room.  This does not quantify what chiropractic actually is.  If you treat a chiropractor like a hospital you will only get hospital like results. Band-aids.  Crutch’s.  Cover–ups.  While necessary at times, it is not chiropractic.  Never really addressing the true cause.  We tell our patients that if you only come to the chiropractor when you are in pain, that makes as much sense as only eating healthy when your sick.  The body is not designed for the quick fix.  We assume this only based on pharmaceutical companies and how easily and readily pain reliving stimulants are available to us.  Go to any gas station and see how many pain relieving “quick” drugs are out there.

Skip The Fix & Go For The Heal

If you are looking to heal, look first towards the central nerve system (CNS).  The healing capabilities begins and ends with the properties that the CNS controls.  You have to regenerate cellular tissue.  The tissue cell is regulated and controlled via the CNS.  Chiropractic care not only improves spinal function – it allows your body to heal.  When you have normal movement patterns in the spinal region the CNS is free to do what it needs.  Which is to protect and maintain your homeostasis.  Simple.  Getting out of pain is easy.  The healing process is what HAS to happen or else we are bordering on insanity.  Get your nerves checked by a specific chiropractor.

 

Things To Look For When Buying Health

Things To Look For When Buying Health

The health market is and always will be filled with the latest and newest fad.  Why?  Because we assume that health is something that can be bought, bartered, traded, or consumed.  A reference that I often think about when it comes to buying health is the Kevin Costner movie Tin Cup.  In  shortened version, Costner loses his dominate swing and decides that what he needs is exactly what he doesn’t.  Gimmicks.  He buys the latest and newest gimmicks that will “improve” his swing.  Our health is often associated with the same tendencies.

Beware Of The Doctor Recommendation

When the key tagline of the product states that it is doctor recommended, you need to stop and think.  Top variable to consider when thinking about a product is that health sells.  Where does the money trail lead to?  Just because a doctor puts a credibility stamp on it, means nothing.  Remember back in the day doctors used to endorse smoking.  Google the verb age “doctors and smoking” and follow the trail.

The Instant Fix Of Buying Health

Guess what?  There is no such thing as a quick fix when it comes to health.  Time is the biggest factor.  When you have 2 week fads or other shenanigans claiming to do this or that.  Come back to reality.  Any change that you are looking to acquire will take time.  This concept of change on the body requires time.  If you are constantly shocking the body with this diet, and this pill, and this supplement for only short periods of time, you are wasting your money.  Buying health requires time.

Health Has Not Changed & Nor Will It

The claims will never stop of the newest and latest gadget to shed off pounds or any other device that is invented to make a quick buck.  So, just ignore them.  Get back to the basics that have survived the test of time.  Superficially to be healthy you need to eat a substantial diet and exercise.  Simple.  On the inside of the body make sure your central nerve system is running at 100%.  If you are looking to be healthy do you choose the hospital or the chiropractic office?  Simple.  Chiropractic care makes sure that the well people stay well.  Chiropractic care is done without lotions, potions, gimmicks, or fads.

 

 

3 Facts About Chiropractic Adjustments

3 Facts About Chiropractic Adjustments

Specificity Is Key For Chiropractic Adjustments

Every organ, tissue, gland, and cell is maintained and controlled via your central nerve system.  Chiropractic focuses specifically and solely on the central nerve system.  A subluxation is when a vertebrae places pressure on a nerve.  This pressure is very minimal, the weight of a dime.  This pressure creates dysfunction by limiting the firing potential of the nerve.  Thus creating chaos within ones body.  Finding the right subluxation is unique and specific towards you.  A chiropractic adjustments have to have rationale.  X-ray analysis allows chiropractic to see what’s really going on.  It limits all guessing.

Speed Is A Must For Chiropractic Adjustments

Speed is defiantly a huge component of a chiropractic adjustment.  In order to impact the central nerve system, chiropractors have to influence spinal function.  A chiropractic adjustment needs to be delivered in under 200 milliseconds to induce physiological changes.  Chiropractors need to be faster than their patients.  Simple.  An easy way to think about speed is understanding applying force against somebody.  Our immediate response when someone leans on us is to activate muscles to counter the action.  Subluxations alter the brain processing which creates spinal function to be guarded.  When somehting is guarded it’s protected.  An adjustment has to be faster than your muscle response.

What Do Chiropractic Adjustments Actually Do

After a specific chiropractic adjustment to a subluxation, the body has no other option but to adapt…HEAL.  Adapting allows processing and integration of the brain to be optimal.  It restore proper function to the body as a whole.  An adjustment evokes para-spinal muscles to fire and send messages back to the brain.  Which in turn reconnects the brain-body connection.  Thus allowing your body to adapt to the stress placed on it.  Think of this way.  A subluxation alters input from the brain to the body.  It disconnects the messages and scrambles them up.  A specific chiropractic adjustment reconnects the pathway.

Ever Feel Disconnected From Your Body

Ever Feel Disconnected From Your Body

Ever have the feeling that you and your body are just disconnected?  Could be a reoccurring theme for some.  Could of just happened by chance for others.  Either way the body is trying to communicate to you.  Listen to the body and head it’s advice.  Every single day in our office we talk about being disconnected.  It’s a realization that your chiropractor should explain to you.  The body is doing something for a reason. Listen.  ​Misalignment causes irritation of the spinal nerves, and this irritation, in turn, will lead to symptoms.

Disconnected

The simplest way to explain what a chiropractic adjustment is doing, is reconnecting.  Think of plugging a lamp back in to the outlet.  You see when a subluxation occurs it causes dysfunction within the entire central nerve system.  Which means your entire body.  Initially a subluxation is like dimming lights.  You can still see.  You can still function.  You basically can do everything you want to do.  Not at 100% though.  That should not be normal for you.  Yet, many people continue to live their lives like that.  Chiropractic is much more than just “pain treatments.”  Understanding the full capacity of chiropractic is grasping the body as a whole.

Living Connected

So, what happens when the body is connected.  This falls into play with people who get checked for subluxations on a regular basis.  Patients will report being in tune with their body.  They will recognize “symptoms” that are particular to them.  This ranges from: limited range of motion, poor energy, sickness, ear infections, to constipation.  A symptom is a red flag.  Recognize that living disconnected puts your health at risk.  Symptoms will appear and take over. Without directly attacking symptoms with medication.  Chiropractic restores proper connection to the brain-body pathways.  Which enables your body to HEAL.  Nothing is more powerful than enabling your body to adapt to the stress placed on it.

 

Overcoming The Anxiety Disorder

By | ADHD, Benefits of Chiropractic, Ear Infections

Overcoming The Anxiety Disorder

Anxiety disorder is becoming a problem in the United States. Often simultaneously used in the same sentence as stress.  Distinctly anxiety disorder is an umbrella that encompasses a vast array of emotional disturbances.  With the disorder will come physical signs and symptoms that the body expresses.

Physical Signs & Symptoms Of Anxiety Disorder

  • Increased muscle tension
  • Dizziness
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Rapid breathing
  • Heart palipitations
  • Irritability
  • Chills/hot flashes
  • Many more

Understanding The Process Of The Disorder

To be classified as having this disorder you need to have a diagnosis.  Often times many people receive the diagnosis and then are left for chance without any direction.  Taking medication over and over again does not address the cause.   To understand the process think of the word anxiety.  Anxiety is a normal part of your life.  It’s actually healthy.  When it becomes aggressive and chronic in nature without subsiding then it becomes demoralizing.

First Order Of Business

Addressing the physical signs and symptoms should be the first order of business.  Clinically this is proven over and over again with specific chiropractic care.  Chiropractor’s have long been known to help with physical symptoms.  Then when the body is in a balanced state we can address the emotional part of the anxiety disorder.  Why?  How?  Specific adjustments actually restores spinal function which ultimately changes the way the brain functions.  An adjustment is like a computer re-boot.  It’s restored.  The key is to understand the root cause of the symptoms, easier said than done.

The Cause

When the body is unable to adapt, health cannot simply manifest.  You might say that in order to stop anxiety disorder I should just stop “thinking!”  When the body is properly connected (brain to body) life is at it’s optimal potential.  After a specific adjustment the body establishes proper connection with the pre-frontal cortex in the brain.  Think of the pre-frontal cortex as the “OG” (orignal gangster for those of us who dont know slang) the “HEAD HONCHO.”  Use whatever adjective you find appropriate.  Fact of the matter is that you need to maintain your health through specific chiropractic care.  Learn more and ask more.  Simple way is to contact us.

Pursue Health Before Trauma

By | ADHD, Benefits of Chiropractic, Ear Infections

Pursue Health Before Trauma

If you are in the pursuit of healthcare then look no further.  Ask yourself a simple question.  What is the most important structure within my body?  Brain, spine, or central nerve system should be your top answer.  Without health, life cannot simply manifest.  Health within a body comes from a clear and connected central nerve system.  Without a happy central nerve system you do not have health.  Trauma should not start your way towards health.

Before The Trauma

Chiropractor’s roughly take care of 10% of the population.  A solid chunk of this number is associated with people who have sustained a trauma.  Our society dictates that when a trauma occurs that we should see a chiropractor.  This is FALSE.  Chiropractic did not start on the doctrine that after your car accident you should see your chiropractor.  Chiropractors definitely can help and assist you after the accident, it is not what chiropractic stands for though.  Chiropractic focus on health and what causes somebody to be healthy and stay that way.

Seek Health Out

Chiropractic is the only profession that allows the body to adapt and heal without altering the body externally.  This meaning NOT taking drugs, lotions, or potions or something artificially to alter the body.  How to be healthy?  Seek active health care out before a trauma occurs.  The trauma is something that occurs on a regular basis.  It is not the sudden car accident we suspect.

Types of trauma that we are referring to are the repetitions in life.  Think of the things that you do over and over again.  Repetition is the top physical trauma that brings people into the office.  Imagine if I have bad posture today.  Chances are that tomorrow I will have the same posture.  If I have to look at a computer screen all day while sitting today.  My odds tomorrow is that I will do the same thing.

Let The Body Adapt

Allowing the central nerve system to be free and connected allows changes/adaptation to occur.  Changes to the CNS allows specific messages to the rest of the body to be at 100%.  Change is always good.  #getchecked

 

What To Do With Constant Muscle Tension?

By | Benefits of Chiropractic

What To Do With Constant Muscle Tension?

Muscle tension often shows up after a vigorous exercise or a new activity that your body is not used to.  This tension should dissipate after a couple of days.  That is considered a normal chain of events.  If the muscle tension exists for an extended period of time, somethings up.  If you find yourself at the end of the day having the same tension over and over again, your body is not healing.  The body is trying to communicate to you, just listen.

Deep Muscle Tension

Your body always works from inside to out.  The central nerve system coordinates all activity for the musckelskeletal system.  Muscles do not upset the firing capacity of a nerve.  A nerve becomes irritated and upsets the muscles the nerve is controlling .  If a specific nerve in your spine has chronic irritation as a direct result the muscles it controls will be irritated as well.  This irritation occurs from subluxations within the body.  A subluxation irritates a nerve thus rendering the nerve to be below its optimal potential.  Think of irritation as dropping a phone call that is vitally important.  This will happen over and over again.

Undo The Tension From Within

Tension is one symptom that your body will reveal when a subluxation is present for a period of time.  Loss of energy, poor sleeping habits, inability to heal from stress in your life.  Allow your body to heal and adapt with specific chiropractic care.  Chiropractor’s are the only profession that allow your body to heal from within by adjusting subluxations.  Chronic tension you can feel on the outside of your body.  Imagine what that tension does to the inside of the body.  Health is more than just “How You Feel.”  Health is about expressing your optimal potential on a daily basis.

How To Invest In Your Health

The best time to invest in your health is now.  In our current state of fast living and more, more, more the little things tend to be neglected.  There is a saying that tends to fit our current state of mind.  “Someone who is young and strives for wealth and neglects their health will often spend their wealth later in life to acquire their health.”  The one thing that you cannot get back is time.  Your health is an investment not an expense.  If we take our health seriously we need to start at the foundation of everything.  The inside.

Invest In The Inside

It’s what inside that matters most.  This is often expressed when dating somebody new and the same holds true for your health.  Invest in your health begins with your central nerve system.  This holds true because the central nerve system is the master controller in the body.  Every expression you have in your life is solely geared and constructed via your central nerve system.  Specific chiropractic check-ups ensure that your body is functioning at your optimal level.    That’s it, it’s very simple and to the point.  If you want to perform at 100% the inside needs to be working at 100%.

The Rest

After incorporating regular check-ups the rest is easy.  Start with the basics and do not over complicate things.  Taking care of your health is hard-work, thus it’s called an investment.  You need to incorporate regular physical exercise and a healthy sustained diet.  Remember everything is in moderation.  You don’t have to become a health nut and worry about eating potato chips.  What is not in moderation is medication.  The greatest medicine is to teach people how not to use it.  Invest on the inside first and then everything else will fall into place.  Simple.

Bid The Job Through X-rays

Bid The Job Through X-rays

Anybody that has ever been involved in a renovation or house project knows about the “Bid.”  There are lots of factors to consider when someone gives another person a bid.  Usually the number one thing that makes it or breaks it for somebody is the cost.  What determines the difference between pricing from one contractor to the next?  Your guess is just as good as mine.  Obliviously, they have their reasons for what they do and how they handle their business.  What about if they had x-rays?

How To See More About The Problem

A great tool that has been utilized for helping locate the source and cause of problems for health care is x-rays.  Imagine if a contractor had such a tool to use when bidding for a job that they could be so specific in their bid.  X-rays reveal specifically what and where your specific subluxations are.  Subluxations are what chiropractor’s are trained to locate and adjust if necessary.  The subluxation disconnects the brain body connection.  Imagine going in blindfolded when bidding a construction job.  The same can be said when not utilizing the availability of advanced imaging and chiropractic care.

X-rays Eliminate Guessing

Ultimately a valid tool to use in any chiropractic office is x-rays.  Obliviously, pregnant females and infants do not require imaging.  For everyone else the availability to utilize an x-ray is substantial.  Looking at the x-rays and understanding how they correlate with your overall health is what chiropractors do.  ​A healthy lifestyle, including regular chiropractic adjustments, is the cornerstone of controlling your quality of life.  To access and utilize advanced imaging makes sure that your care is different than everybody else.  Why?  Because everybody is different and their care should be unique and specific based on their needs.  There is no such thing as a cookie-cutter formula when dealing with a subluxation and how it affects somebody. Get your body checked.

Understanding Pain & Punching Walls

Understanding Pain & Punching Walls

Well, now that we have some attention let’s break down understanding pain & punching walls.  First understanding pain and what it is and what it is not.  Pain is subjective.  What one person feels is completely different than somebody else.  Females have a higher pain threshold than males.  Yes, that is true.  Females ability to cope with pain is actually a bad thing.  Why?  Perceiving that once pain is gone you are healthy is the BIGGEST flaw.  Yes, chiropractors can get you out of pain.  Yes, it does not mean you are better.  Understand why.

Understanding Pain By Punching A Wall

Now, don’t try this at home.  Once you punch a wall your body should want to do two things (besides yelling).  The reason we want to do these two things is because it allows adrenaline and endorphin’s to finally kick on.  These are not in any particular order.  The goal of these two actions is to relieve yourself of pain.

  1. Punch a wall and you will want to immediately start shaking the hand as fast as possible.  Reason being to block mechanoreceptors (sensation feeling computers) from being transmitted that you just punched a wall.
  2. Punch a wall and you will want to immediately put your other hand over your knuckles.  Reason being to block and dampen the mechanoreceptors from being able to transmit pin point accuracy of pain.

Both of these tactics work try by block the pain messages by incorporating or limiting proprioception…movement.

Understanding Pain & Chiropractic

After getting out of pain with your hand what is left.  For starters, you will have limited range of motion, decreased sensation, poor grip strength, deep tissue bleeding, inflammation, and maybe even a broken bone.  Guess your better though!?  When visiting your chiropractor, don’t just visit for pain. If you only come in for pain care you will never experience the true benefits of what chiropractic can actually do for you.  Once a chiropractor get’s your body out pain that is when you continue care to actually HEAL.  Chiropractic is not designed for a hospital setting it is designed for lifetime healthcare.
