Wellness Care Is Important
The best and most common reason people seek chiropractic care at Barge Berkley Chiropractic Clinics is wellness care. The reason that chiropractors focus on your spine is because your Nervous System runs through it. Your brain, spinal cord, and it’s nerves all make up your Nervous System. Your Nervous System controls every single function in your entire body; every muscle, tissue, organ, and cell. The nerves that control all of these things exit your spine through tiny holes at each vertebral level. When we have a subluxation (misalignment) in our spine, it decreases the space that the nerve exits from and decreases the function of the nerve and whatever part of the body it goes to. This is often painless and presents itself in the form of symptoms like a headache, allergies, asthma, acid reflux, constipation, diarrhea, low energy, trouble sleeping, bed wetting, colic, ear infection, and more. All of these problems lead back to your spine, where the nerve interference originates. By correcting the subluxation (misalignment) with an adjustment, we allow the body to function properly and relieve those symptoms.
When a patient receives regular chiropractic care, they allow their Nervous System to function optimally. This results in less frequent injury, improved mobility, better adaptation to stress, getting sick less often, and being able to enjoy life how they are meant to! Many patients choose to stay under care even after their original complaint is resolved because they realize the benefits of regular adjustments and they want to maintain the progress in their health. Your body is a self-healing, self-regulating organism, but sometimes it needs a little help adapting to stress. Let yourself experience a better life, give us a call!
How Lifestyle Affects Overall Wellness in La Crosse
The decisions we make and the actions we take in each moment of our day affect our bodies and can slowly produce problems that may not show symptoms. What we eat, how we sit, the work that we do with our bodies, and even the way we emotionally react to a situation, can have long-term impacts on our wellness. If you spend your days sitting at a desk, the way you hold your head or place your arms can have a major impact, not only on your neck and shoulders, but also on your whole body.
This is because the bundle of nerves that sends messages to every other part of our body, originates in our spinal column. When vertebrae become misaligned there are dozens of possible impacts upon our health. This also goes for how we hold emotions in the body. If we are chronically tensing our shoulders due to stress or anxiety, this can once again impact the spine and the rest of the body. As you can see, even if we don't feel sick, we may be in need of a little extra care to prevent daily activities from becoming more severe problems. The more strenuous lifestyle you lead, the more reason to get checked by a chiropractor. Many patients don’t realize how bad they feel until they start feeling better.
Why We Need Wellness Care
Health can be defined as the body functioning properly rather than just feeling good. You may not feel sick today, but if your nervous system is being impeded from sending messages to other organs and systems in the body, things may not be working as well as they could be. Through a regular wellness care program that works to restore spinal health and mobility, people often find that they have more energy and do not get sick as often. When the nervous system is functioning properly, the benefits are endless. Digestion, blood flow, lung capacity, heartbeat, skin tone, and overall mobility are just some of the body’s functions that are positively impacted by a spine that is properly aligned.
Chiropractic As Part of A Wellness Care Plan
Chiropractic treatments work to keep the integrity of the nervous system intact and are an excellent choice as a part of a wellness care plan. Regular, gentle adjustments can ensure that the daily impacts of your life are not wearing your health down over time. By performing a thorough evaluation of your health history and current physical state, a chiropractor can help you detect problems before they develop into a more serious issue, keeping you at peak function and feeling great.
