How do I know if I or my child needs a chiropractor?

First off, chiropractic is different or medicine.

Chiropractors don’t diagnose or treat medical conditions.

Medicine treats symptoms and is symptom focused. If you are looking for me to share a specific symptom, my answer may surprise you.

Everyone should go at every age. – Why? Why should I go cause my back doesn’t hurt and has never hurt? Why should I take my baby or child cause well they have never complained of a sore back? If your back is sore – absolutely go to the chiropractor. If you have nerve pain, headaches, poor posture, can’t walk due to pain – call a chiropractor now.

Do you go to the dentist solely to have a root canal or tooth extraction? Or do you go to have your teeth cleaned and make sure you are not developing a problem?

I don’t feel anything so there must not be anything wrong! False.

Wellness check ups are essential to support one’s health and wellness at every age and stage in life!

Chiropractic looks for interference within the spinal system which impacts one’s health and wellness.

Let me explain.

Our spine protects our spinal cord, which is the message highway from our brain to all of our other muscles, tissues, organs and glands via the nerves that exit between each vertebrae, (spinal bone). Commonly known as the “central nervous system.” Your central nervous system controls every body system. If one vertebrae is slightly out of alignment, it can cause nerve interference resulting in a lack of wellness.

A lack of wellness will manifest itself in silent signs of what chiropractors term, “subluxation.”

Let me explain.

Health is our natural state. Ease and well-being are normal and natural. If we have lost our health this means we have lost our normal state of expression. So, a symptom is not the problem. A symptom is there to tell you there is an underlying issue. The types of symptom’s we have learned to correlate with out spine health are severely limited and thus often chronic subluxations have set in if we solely depend on pain – that’s another blog post –

Getting back on track. Your nerve system controls everything. It controls every cell, every organ, every tissue. It you lose your health your nerve system will be involved because it controls your functional healing and recreation of new cells.

Does it make sense to you or is it starting to make more sense as to why to go to the chiropractor to make sure your body is working at its best?

I hope.
