In the past many years there has been a huge shift from traditional allopathic health care to a more natural and alternative health care approach. What I have noticed is that people will make sure to eat organic food, use eco-friendly products, and try herbs and supplements versus medication, but end up missing a huge piece of the vibrantly healthy lifestyle…chiropractic care!
For many people the word chiropractic is directly associated with back pain and neck pain. If the person doesn’t have either of those symptoms they think chiropractic has nothing for them and don’t give it a second thought. Although chiropractic can help people who suffer with neck and back pain…this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Chiropractic care focuses on improving the way the whole body works. The bones of the spine have a primary job of protecting and housing our spinal cord and the surrounding nerves. The spinal cord and these offshoot nerves control and coordinate EVERY cell, tissue and organ in the entire body. When the spinal bones shift out of place (due to repetitive stress and/or big trauma) they place pressure on the nearby nerves decreasing the way the nerve functions. It is estimated that the weight of a dime on any of these nerves can decrease the function of the nerve by 60%. Now imagine if this nerve was going to your heart, lungs, liver or pancreas? Would you want the pressure to stay on this nerve and decrease the way it functions? For a simple analogy follow the link http://drliatocco.com/how-chiropractic-can-help-you .
When an adjustment is performed on the misaligned segment this pressure is taken off the nerve and it can once again function the way it was designed to. This allows the end organ, tissue, or cell to once again function at 100%.
The possibilities with chiropractic are endless. There are thousands of people who have been helped with asthma, allergies, heartburn, carpal tunnel, headaches, sciatica and the list goes on and on. Instead of focusing on these problems we focus on improving the function of the entire body and allowing your body to heal and improve itself. For more information please visit DrLiaTocco.com
It’s never too early…or too late for chiropractic!
