Hello everyone this is Dr. Mike Breneman and we are back for our second edition of Wellness Wisdom! Thank-you so much for reading so far and for all of the great feedback! We are very happy to have another outlet to share our health knowledge with our friends and loved ones. The topic for today is what do chiropractors really do?
People have a tendency to think of Chiropractic as simply dealing with pain relief and working with bones. We as doctors of chiropractic think of what we do more as working with the brain and nerve system to maximize proper function. We look at the brain and nerve system as sophisticated circuits where vital information is energetically passed from the brain to our body and back again in a loop. We are trained to detect and correct vertebral column dysfunction, misalignment and lack of movement called "subluxation." These subluxations in the spine cause neurocompressive disease which affects the quality and quantity of this energetic information. The compression and suppression of this spinal nerve flow can lead to pain... and we are excellent at getting rid of pain, but it is perhaps more important to remember that these same nerves supply nutrition and information to ALL of our organs! This exchange of information allows a properly functioning nervous system to maintain homeostasis intelligently... without any outside interference our bodies have the POWER to heal and grow and thrive. We call this INNATE INTELLIGENCE.
To the best chiropractors it's not about bones... or pain. It's about your overall well being and LOVE and POTENTIAL. Because we all have this AMAZING power within us. Our goal is to teach people the importance of spinal health and give people our knowledge and empower our communities to realize their greatest dreams.
