Why Chiropractic Care Makes Sense
The choice of Chiropractic Care makes sense for achieving and maintaining a healthy life.
I often overlook the simplicity of Chiropractic Care. Every minute of every day, I preach about good health, prevention and how important spinal health is for everyone and their lifelong health.
When we think of the nervous system, I often relate it to the workings of a car engine. When a signal is sent to the engine by the key or the accelerator, the engine is expected to respond quickly and efficiently. We expect the same of our body when we give it a command – take a step, quickly avoid an obstacle, reach for a glass, fall asleep and stay asleep and on and on.
We forget to realize that, just like a car, if we don’t give it a tune-up at certain intervals, it won’t run as we expect it to. It might hesitate or sputter, not start on the first crank, take a bit longer to come to a stop or even run out of gas! Our body is similar. If our nervous system is not primed every once in a while, it may not respond the way we expect it. This might present as pain or imbalance or fatigue, loss of coordination, brain fog or indigestion.
Just like our car, we need to give our body the proper fuel and oil change on a regular basis. Think of the true benefits of that regular inspection and maintenance check. For the body, the organs stay healthy, the circulatory system continues to flow and the brain can function without hesitation, just by getting a simple and safe spinal adjustment. That’s the easy part, just like dropping off your car for an oil change and tune up.
“Check the brakes, the oil, the fan belt and the radiator fluid please.”
If your belts have been neglected and gotten brittle, no matter how much you want that engine to run smoothly, it just won’t! Think of the belts as your tendons and ligaments. If you don’t take care of your joints, they won’t work as expected, causing a breakdown of the very important components of movement, ultimately causing pain. A simple and quick once-over will keep those joints lubricated and moving well.
The oil in your car helps your engine run smoothly. The micronutrients that you eat on a regular basis hold the same importance of oil in your engine. Clean eating can really make a difference in how your body’s engine runs. Your body also needs clean fuel, just like good gas. Put in your body the same quality fuel that you put in your car and you will feel good for a much longer period of time. You will also age more easily and without that nagging and dragging feeling. Your brain will also perform better and your memory will be more intact.
Right down to the tires that you run your car on, take care of your feet by wearing good shoes that protect and cushion your body when you walk or run. Now that you can correlate almost every aspect of your body to that of your car, maybe you will start taking better care of you. Get a chiropractic adjustment just like a car tune up and you – and your body – will be so happy you did!
