The aim of the Chiropractic adjustment is to remove subluxations within your spine. A subluxation is first found as a segment within your spine which is not moving correctly. Without proper motion, your brain does not receive correct sensory information and thus your brain will not send out the correct neural response. Imagine stroking a feather across your cheek and your brain puts out a response as if it is a blow torch. This incorrect response can be manifested in a multitude of ways, including pain, headaches, increased blood pressure, gastrointestinal issues, and dysfunctional movement patterns, just to name a few.
The most important word to hang onto is NEURAL.
Your brain and descending nerves are the biggest players being affected here. Your spine and joints are the medium we use to reach this essential self-regulating, self-maintaining and self-healing system. When this system is not functioning properly, it goes into a stress response with muscles spasms, joints restricting motion, nearby nerves are choked and chafed, and your internal regulatory system loses control.
In fact, the literal translation of the word subluxation is:
SUB – under, below, beneath
LUX – light, lumen
ATION – result or product of an action
When you are subluxated, your internal light is not shining at maximum capacity. Ridding yourself of subluxations does not remove dis-ease but adds in life and light. Come get adjusted and turn the light on in yourself.
