If you were unfortunate enough to break a bone, you know what it's like to get casted. With a little repositioning and some skilled plastering, the fracture is stable. After a few weeks when the cast comes off, you're just as good as new. So did the cast do the healing?
Plaster casts and Chiropractic Adjustments have something in common... neither one can heal you. Sure both may be necessary after an injury. But they can only create the environment necessary for healing to take place. Casts align broken bones so they can mend; adjustments align misaligned vertebrae to optimize nerve flow---but it's the innate healing power of the Life inside you that scripts the healing.
The next time you come for an adjustment to instantly ease your headache, your sciatica or your sleeping problems, understand it's not the adjustment that produces the result. Adjustments simply create an environment conducive for healing. The doctor inside you is the one who does all the work.
In a recent Mayo Clinic study, researchers determined that nearly 70 percent of Americans are on at least one prescription drug, and more than half receive at least two prescriptions. Twenty percent of U.S. patients were also found to be on five or more prescription medications. When it comes to health, Americans aren't as free as we think we are.
Chiropractors believe true freedom comes from IN-Dependence---relying on the Power that made you, to heal you and keep you well. IN-Dependent Chiropractic patients know they innately possess what it takes to heal. they trust in the wisdom of their bodies to handle what ails them instead of running to the medicine cabinet for every cough or sniffle. They're the 30% who would rather give Mother Nature the chance to do her job, than usurp her roll with drug intervention.
Big Pharma won't stop advertising and pushing their products until we're 100% dependent on them. this Fourth of July when you're celebrating our country's freedom, take a moment to reflect on your body's freedom as well. Are you truly as IN-Dependent as you want to be?
It's a common question Chiropractic patients have..."Hey doc, what do you think did it to me this time? Is it the way I'm sleeping, or maybe the stress at work?" To tell you the truth, without 24/7 video surveillance of your every move, it's difficult to tell.
Trying to determine what specific activity created your Subluxation is like trying to figure out which pothole knocked your car out of alignment. They all contribute to it. And driving in fear---worrying about every rock, crack and ditch your car travels over, will only stress you more.
Instead of fretting over every scenario that could throw your spine out of alignment, it's healthier just to get checked and adjusted on a regular basis. Physical, mental and chemical stress is an everyday part of Life. Chiropractic care simply helps you get past all the bumps you'll eventually hit in the road.
If you've ever tuned into the A&E television program Hoarders, it doesn't take a genius to quickly realize it's going to take more than a bottle of Windex to clean up all the garbage, moldy food and rotting animal poop that's been accumulating in those houses for years and years and years...
But some people accumulate health problems the same way, and unrealistically believe it will take just a visit or two at the Chiropractor's to fix all their issues. From years of neglect, bad advise and denial, their chronic illnesses pile up until they can no longer recognize the healthy state their body used to be in. By the time they decide to see a Chiropractor, they've got a real 'dis-ease hoarding' problem and unfortunately one adjustment isn't enough to clean up the squalor.
The goal of Chiropractic isn't to temporarily sweep your symptoms under a rug to make things look good on the surface, but to actually roll our sleeves up and get rid of the underlying clutter once and for all. Sure it might take a little more time and a bit more elbow grease to transform your health our natural way, but in the end your human house will be clean, pristine and habitable again.
