What Is Chiropractic?
"There is an intelligence within the body that has been with you since conception, that heals you without asking, gives life, and takes it away. This intelligence is interfered with when the body is subluxated. Chiropractors remove subluxation."
Chiropractic focuses on LIFE not disease, HEALTH not sickness, without drugs or surgery. Life, the ability to heal and function flows through the spine inside the most powerful system in one’s body: THE NERVOUS SYSTEM. Chiropractic focuses on removing interference to this system and restoring proper function and health restoration.
Where does health come from?
Health is not merely the absence of symptoms, but the ability to ADAPT to one’s life and surroundings. Everything that an individual needs to be healthy starts with the master control system of the body: THE NERVOUS SYSTEM. To ensure 100% health, one’s nervous system must being functioning at 100%
What does principled chiropractic have to do with HEALTH?
Principal chiropractic is based on assessing ones nervous system to ensure full function and fulfilling one’s potential. It’s not based on the absence or presence of one’s symptoms, but merely ensuring that the brain to body connection is functioning at 100%.
What is a subluxation? The nervous system governs and communicates the entire function of the human body. Brain function, thinking, sleeping, digestion, breathing and the heart pumping blood are all functions of the human nervous system. Principled chiropractic is focused on what’s called a subluxation. A subluxation occurs when a spinal bone is misaligned and interferes with the communication system (aka the nervous system) and thus the function of the human body.
Subluxation explained in an analogy.
The human body has 46 miles of nerves in its entirety. Think of those nerves as a freeway. When there is traffic on a freeway, it slows down the cars’ rate of driving and delays arrival time. The cars are still able to get to their destination, but not as efficiently. The same is true for one’s nervous system and subluxation. A subluxation can exist and the nerve’s communication still gets to the organ or cell, but not as efficiently. As a principled chiropractor and using the freeway analogy, Dr. Katie is looking for the traffic in one’s freeway and removing it so the freeway can function most optimally.
How do subluxations get into spine?
Subluxations through physical, chemical, and emotional STRESS. Physical stress can be slow overtime like sitting, physical trauma and even birth. Yes! The birthing process is very stressful! (But oh so beautiful).
Chemical stresses range from any toxins that we as individuals encounter on a daily basis, medications, foods and our environment. Emotional stresses are trauma from childhood or adulthood, emotional wounds, PTSD and the daily stress of life.
What’s the goal and why do people get checked regularly once their symptoms go away?
As a chiropractor, our goal is to assess one’s nervous system for subluxation and find the cause of the issues. Chiropractic’s main objective is to optimize the brain to body connection in order to live LIFE clear and to maximize health. Overtime practice members who get checked regularly experience many improvements such as an increased immune system, increase brain cognition, higher levels of energy, and overall better LIFE expression. Symptoms decrease, but life still has its stressors which cause subluxation. Generally speaking, chiropractic helps individuals and families increase their ability to ADAPT to stress in order to have a full expression of LIFE without drugs or surgery!
