Is your body in Tune?
Conditions that cause troublesome symptoms don’t appear out of thin air, they build up over time like the straws on a camel’s back. Only when you reach 1000 straws does the camel’s back break and you feel symptoms, you feel - OUT OF TUNE.
A Chiropractor checks your spine for joint dysfunction; a part of your spine that is not moving or functioning normally. This is called a ‘subluxation’ and it interferes with normal brain function. Lack of movement in the spinal joints can lead to:
· Neck pain & headaches
· Lower back and pelvic pain
· Shoulder and arm pain
· Leg, knee and foot pain
· Upper back and rib pain
When you are “in-tune” our brain continuously monitors and integrates sensory information from around the body to accurately perform movements. This integration of sensory information to perform motor commands is known as sensorimotor integration.
Spinal function impacts communication between the brain, the body and the environment. It can have an impact on how accurately the brain is able to perceive what is going on and respond.
If spinal segments are moving too much this causes background noise for the brain. If they don’t move enough, the brain doesn’t get adequate information about what’s happening within the spine. So your body is out-of-tune.
A chiropractor gently adjusts dysfunctional spinal segments to restore appropriate spine movement. For the brain this is like rebooting a computer and getting you back in tune. This clears up communication between the brain and the body, leading to better function, less accidents and a healthier you.
