Routine Maintainance

Have you ever thought about your body as being like a car? Just because your car runs doesn't mean that it is properly aligned. Belts may be rubbing and wearing out, the alignment may be off causing uneven wear on your tires. Think of your spine in the same way. You may have symptoms such as headaches, back pain, fatigue,or tightness and that is your bodies way of letting you know that something is wrong. If you just take some tylenol or aleve, then you are covering up the symptoms and not fixing the problem. It would be like continuing to get a new tire when it wears out instead of getting your car aligned. Getting adjusted allows your body to take care of itself by decreasing interference in the nervous system, the one thing that controls your whole body. The human body is an amazing self healing mechanism when it is optimally functioning. HAVE YOU GOTTEN YOUR TUNE UP LATELY?

Build your immunity through Chiropractic

The nervous system and immune system are hardwired and work together to create optimal responses for the body to adapt and heal appropriately. Neural dysfunctions due to spinal misalignments are stressful to the body and cause abnormal changes that lead to a poorly coordinated immune response. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to boost the coordinated responses of the nervous system and immune system.

The autonomic nervous system is hardwired into the lymphoid organs such as the spleen, thymus, lymph nodes, and bone marrow that produce the body's immune response. Growing evidence is showing that immune function is regulated in part by the sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system.

Subluxation is the term for misalignments of the spine that cause compression and irritation of nerve pathways affecting organ systems of the body. Subluxations are an example of physical nerve stress that affects neuronal control. According to researchers, such stressful conditions lead to altered measures of immune function & increased susceptibility to a variety of diseases.

Inflammatory based disease is influenced by both the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems. Nerve stimulation directly affects the growth and function of inflammatory cells. Researchers found that dysfunction in this pathway results in the development of various inflammatory syndromes such as rheumatoid arthritis and behavioral syndromes such as depression. Additionally, this dysfunctional neuro-endo-immune response plays a significant role in immune-compromised conditions such as chronic infections and cancer.
