HOW CHIROPRACTIC CARE CAN HELP YOU
When subluxations are present they affect the body's ability to function optimally. We often use the analogy of a cell phone when describing the effects subluxations have on communication within the body.
When talking on a cell phone with a crisp, clear connection, you can accurately hear the conversation coming from the other end of the call. However, when the connection is intermittent or weak it becomes difficult to communicate, the conversation becomes unclear, there are misunderstandings, mixed messages, frustration, and eventually, the call is cut off.
It is the same when our brain is trying to communicate through our nerve system to all the organs and tissues of the body. Subluxations can make this communication difficult, the signals become unclear, there are mixed messages, frustration and eventually, the communication is cut off.
At times, this inability of your body to fully function as intended can lead to pain and symptoms, clueing you in, if you choose to listen, that there is a problem. However, since only 10% of our nerve system is programmed to perceive pain, often subluxations are painless and can go undetected for years. Yet when present, they affect the functionality of your body's systems in a variety of ways.
