Health isn't just about feeling well. It's also about functioning well.
Your body is self-regulating and self-healing. When you cut your finger, it heals itself from the inside out, right? That's because your body communicates with your brain through the nervous system that something just isn't right. Then your brain sends messages back to the body directing it how to begin healing. You can think of this like carrying on a constant conversation with a friend on your cell phone. Your words are carried on cellular waves to their phone and vice versa. Sometimes, though, things interfere with the signal, like static. At other times, you might even drop the call entirely. The same goes for the signals between your brain and the rest of your body. Certain things can interfere with its ability to regulate and heal itself.
Wondering what could cause this intereference? Very small interferences can make huge differences. In fact, take a dime out of your pocket, place it in the palm of your hand, and consider this - studies show that the small amount of pressure that the dimes puts on your palm is enough to reduce the signal of a single nerve by 60% within only a few minutes.
Your back bones, called vertebrae ( vûr'tə-brā), are meant to surround and protect your spinal cord and the very delicate nerves that originate from it. However, sometimes these bones can actually put pressure on the structures they are supposed to protect, thus diminishing the signals between the brain and the body part, organ, or cells it tries to communicate with. When this occurs things can go awry.
Take these examples:
- if the signal is interrupted between the brain and the pancreas (the organ that makes insulin and controls blood sugar), it could lead to diabetes
- if the signal is interrupted between the brain and the female ovaries, it could possibly lead to fertility issues
- if the signal is interrupted between the brain and the heart, it could lead to high blood pressure, low blood pressure, or heart palpitations
Wouldn't you feel pain if there was interference in the nervous system? The answer is most likely not. The truth is that only about 6% of the nerves in our bodies are sensory nerves (nerves that cause pain), and the rest are nerves that relate to bodily functions. This means that more times than not, you won't feel as though something is wrong.
Chiropractors are specially trained in finding nervous system interferences between the brain and body, and restoring the communication that's essential for true and ultimate health. Everything in your body functions at optimum levels when it can communicate freely with the nervous system.
Think of massage as an indulgence? It can actually be a powerful tool for health and well-being — from easing pain and inflammation to soothing stress and anxiety. In fact, studies have found massage to be helpful for:
- Digestive disorders
- Insomnia related to stress
- Myofascial pain syndrome
- Paresthesias and nerve pain
- Soft tissue strains or injuries
- Sports injuries
- Temporomandibular joint pain
Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often involves caring and comfort tailored to you by our massage therapist. We offer a variety of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Baby and Sports massage along with trigger point therapy.
Meditation can remove stress and replace it with a dose of inner peace. It’s one of the best tools we have to balance our emotions, deal with physical and psychological distress, and promote the peace of the present moment. However, it can be tough to meditate without a guide. Meditating on your own requires some effort, while guided meditations literally walk you through a meditation and help you find a calm and peaceful state—one step at a time. ChiroCore+ guided meditations can range from fifteen minutes to one hour. Let us help you find your focus. You can even provide the peaceful space in your own home, at a public place, or take advantage of an on-site class we offer and we'll do the rest.
