What is Wellness Chiropractic?
Subluxation is a term used in the chiropractic field to describe a neurospinal condition that is a result of when stress overwhelms the ability of our body to adapt to it. This results in disturbances and/or interferences in the ability of our nervous system to express itself. This pressure and stress can cause an imbalance in the body’s normal processes as the nerves in the neurospinal system extend to the entire body and its organs. As time goes on and the uncorrected subluxation settles, the damage to the nerve gets progressively worse and different stages of subluxation degeneration set in.
Your central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) is responsible for sending messages to every cell, tissue, organ and system in your body. This communication is made possible by your spinal neurologic network. This vast communication network is in charge of virtually every function in your body and determines whether you enjoy good health or disease. The central nervous system is so important that nature built armor – your skull and spinal column – to protect it. However even with this inborn protection, our nervous system can experience interference, injury or disturbance. This damage to our nervous system is what we call subluxation. Subluxations can have devastating effects on your health and well-being.
Subluxations can occur from stress in any of the three dimensions: physical, biochemical or emotional. A car accident, fall, sudden jar, or traumas are all examples of unique instances that may cause neurospinal damage in the physical dimension. Poor diets, artificial sweeteners, cleaning chemicals, high fatty foods are examples that may cause neurospinal damage (subluxations) in the biochemical dimension. Anxiety, relationship problems, money stress and job related problems are examples of stress in the emotional dimension.
Our primary goal is to detect and correct the subluxations that are interfering with your nervous system and health thus allowing your body to heal and establish a healthier you. A Wellness Chiropractor is specially trained to restore proper nerve and spinal function. They do this manually by using the chiropractic procedure known as spinal adjustment. Dr. Anderson, in most cases, will use his hands or instruments to introduce a mild force with the intent to introduce positive imprints in your nervous system thus restoring balance and function. The manual force helps restore function and performance to the nervous system.
Secondarily, as Wellness Chiropractors, we know that lifestyle stresses are what cause subluxations. Therefore, an important part of our practice is helping our patient improve and adopt more beneficial lifestyle habits in areas of diet, nutrition, exercise, stress management, etc. For that reason we have created Wellness University, an ongoing 12-month program designed to help the individual and families discover how to grow their health year after year over the course of their life.
At The Wellness Place, we use state-of-the-art instruments to detect subluxations. All individuals at every age should be checked for hidden subluxations.
