Chiropractic as a Wellness Intervention
Chiropractic is often thought of as an intervention for neck and back pain, nothing more. To a great extent, this attitude is the fault of us chiropractors. Now, more than ever however, people need to understand what chiropractic is, and how it is absolutely necessary.
For the majority of the population, life today has become pathologically stressful. We are inundated with more than ever before with toxins in our food, our air, our water, even in our technological devices which pollute us energetically. We spend more time sitting and performing repetitious actions than ever before in history. Unfortunately, sitting and repetition are not ways to increase physical health. The world has become more com-petitive and people often feel ever increasing pressure to perform – at home, at work, at school, at sports, and more.
In short, life has never been more stressful, and it is evident in the increasing amount of disease in our society, and the type of disease we see. The number one cause of death in our modern society has become, “Suicide by Lifestyle.” Heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and autoimmune diseases all increase in prevalence yearly. All of these diseases have two things in common. They all are diseases that have inflammation at their root, and they all are diseases that manifest due to poor lifestyle choices in most cases. The poor lifestyle choices can be summed up in a single word, STRESS.
Chiropractic is about much more than your pain. In clinical studies, chiropractic has been demonstrated to reduce stress levels. What could be more valuable in a pathologically stressful society?
Every day, in my office, I see the benefits of chiropractic that seldom are men-tioned. These include: More hope, a more positive attitude, a greater sense of well-being. These positive changes in emotional state equate to what is often called a placebo. The placebo is absolutely valid, and the subject of numerous clinical studies.
People often find that when they commit to chiropractic care, life becomes more manageable. There is a reason for this, and that reason can be quantified with our computerized nervous system tests. Science validates the fact that a chiropractic lifestyle has the capacity to change the nervous system. When you change the nervous system, you change the way you perceive the world. When your perception changes, your posture changes, and your posturing changes. The body and the mind can reinvent you. And, you can see these changes happening on our computerized tests.
Chiropractic adjustments, and the appropriate lifestyle changes, are more necessary now than ever before. Stress will kill you, sooner or later.
