orrective chiropractic care seeks to address the underlying structure and functional capacity of your spine. Your life is a direct reflection of your ability to function properly in an efficient way yielding optimal performance and sustained energy. This function is controlled and coordinated by one thing, your central nervous system. The nervous system is made up of your brain and spinal cord (the central nervous system) and all the nerves that exit your spinal column (the peripheral nervous system). Those exiting nerves provide function to every organ, cell and tissue in your body. Simply put deviations from normal spinal structure will cause compressions, irritations, and impedances in the nerve flow throughout those specific nerves, ultimately disrupting the coordinate of signals through your entire body. Your spinal column and the health of your nervous system are absolutely critical components to your health.
You take care of your teeth daily (‘dental hygiene’) and you don’t brush your teeth because they’re in pain, right? Has any doctor has taught you about ‘spinal hygiene’? Unfortunately, the common answer to that question is going to be no. Braces cost several thousand dollars, and address the structure of your teeth. Root canals and tooth surgeries can be costly investments. But here is the thing, technically (although you probably don’t want to) you can replace your teeth! Your spine is exponentially more important and waiting to the point where you need a surgery means your body is in distress and that surgery is going to cost closer to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Unforunately, that’s too late. And you can’t replace your spine. You get one chance and your life literally depends on it. Here’s how we set the benchmark for Quality of Life at Advanced Spinal Institute.
