Your muscles are motors and need clean fuel to function efficiently. Your spinal muscles never switch off, mainly functioning without your conscious control and they require a lot of oxygen, glucose and nutrients such as iron and magnesium.
So if your world is chronically demanding and your system is chronically overactive then guess what? You are correct, you run out of fuel and the muscles fatigue, spasm/ cramp and the vertebra they attach to become dysfunctional.
After a period of time, in fact within hours these vertebral joints begin to fail and begin a process of losing function. As chiropractors our emphasis is on restoring function to these joints by very specific techniques. Beyond restoration we inform our patients of their responsibilities with regard to the factors that may have led to the often symptomatic state which can be pain but is often decreased movement along with poor feedback to your brain, which may lead to aches and pains, headache, migraine, various tremors, coordination and balance issues along with altered eye movements and compromised posturing.
Our job here is huge and we do not ‘fix ‘spines we simply assist in the management of your overall functionality as a human by improving the function of your spine. We do this by assessment of your lifestyle, correction of misaligned and poorly functioning spinal segments and offering you advice with regard to helping yourself.
Just like a dentist deals with a mouthful of teeth that occasionally fail, we are doing the same with your spine. The world is increasingly more demanding and our lifestyles are generally less than adequate for even reasonable health let alone optimum health. We score each of the following out of 10, sleep, water intake, quality and timing of food, stressors such as work especially the posture of seated work, relationships, time out for exercise, meditation and joyful experiences. By personally keeping an eye on these factors you can make small changes that are sustainable and will improve your overall health, so keep an eye on these lifestyle factors and make sustained efforts to improve them.
Our slogan is ‘adjust your spine....adjust your life.
We invite you to become a better you!
