A: One myth is if you’re symptom free, you must be healthy. Another myth is the problem started whenever the pain started. Most commonly, the pain to your problem isn’t instant. Usually by the time you start developing symptoms, the issue has been there for a prolonged period of time.
So how did these issues come about? The three stressors of life are thoughts, traumas and toxins. Let’s start from the day you were born. As the baby exits the birth canal, the traction and twisting of the baby’s neck can cause misalignments. Fast-forward to the walking stage and all of the falls the infant absorbs. Learning to ride a bike takes on more falls. The bad foods you eat and the medications you take are toxins to your body. As you can see, typically, symptoms to underlying issues started years ago.
It’s the little stressors that are built up in time, until our body eventually screams for help. If we don’t regularly do what our bodies need to handle and respond to daily stressors, eventually issues will affect us.
Eat well, move well and think well. The foundation to true health is chiropractic; optimizing human performance and potential by restoring or enhancing the body’s function. Chiropractic focuses on the nervous system, which all of us have. Our nervous system, the brain, spinal cord and nerves, control and coordinate everything inside our body.
Shouldn’t we make sure it’s functioning at its optimal potential?
