Chiropractic in its truest forms focuses on the most important system in your body ,the nervous system. The American Chiropractic Association defines chiropractic as Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Who gives a hoot about the nervous system, well you should and the reasons why will blow you away. Your nervous system controls everything we do on a daily, hourly, secondly moment. On average one can survive without food 20 days, without water a week, with blood loss a few minutes, without nerve supply instantaneous. Think about that someone who is cut with a knife and bleeding can survive for a few minutes, however someone with a severed spinal cord losses all function from there instantly. So it is very important, but more important is what the system controls, EVERYTHING. It also affects how we develop or how our children develop. If you are curious as to how the nervous system can affect your child's develop, take a look into this article on the nervous system. Yes we are a kid chiropractor in San Diego. We love seeing children to allow them to have their happiest and healthiest lives possible!
As a Gonstead Chiropractor in San Diego we use a diagnostic tool that allows us to see how your nervous system is truly functioning. This tool is used on ever visit in our San Diego chiropractic office to ensure the proper function of the most important system in your body. Make sure whoever your chiropractor is, that they use some form of tool to adequately observe your nervous system, without this we resort to symptoms only and that puts us back into the medical mindset, no pain, no problem. So yes we do not confuse people who say we can help with neck pain, low back pain, headaches, digestive issues, etc. But also realize the true reason for chiropractic is the removal of neurological compromise.
Not to dive too deep down a rabbit hole, but lets take a quick example that we can all relate to. Car problems, more specifically car engine problems. So imagine the the check engine light goes on your car. First step is to get the codes read by Autozone, your dealership, etc. They use a diagnostic tool to read the computer chip code. Much like we do within our chiropractic office in San Diego.
So this short article is made to help you determine what chiropractic can do for you and what chiropractic is in its truest of forms. Always think of your body as a self healing being. If you get a paper-cut, you do not need to go to the Emergency Room as it will heal on its own. Also think of a headache and you take an ibuprofen or advil, my question is do you have an ibuprofen or advil deficiency? Because that is what is seems to be, when we get a headache that is the check engine light going off on your care, something is not right whether is blood chemistry, cervical curve structure, dehydration, or something else.
