Dr. Zeinin shares about Chiropractic and the nervous system connection...
The magnificence of the body never ceases to amaze me! Many people don't realize that the brain and the nervous system have a very intimate connection and all bodily functions, voluntary and involuntary, are controlled by the Nervous System.
If that nervous system is not working properly then there is potential dis–ease in the body!
The nervous system can be taxed in a multitude of ways and our ability to withstand and adapt to constant stimuli truly determines our health and well being. Many don't realize that stimuli on our bodies can come in the form(s) of 1. Physical stressors - the things we do with our bodies; work postures, computer ergonomics, exercise, posture etc. 2. Mental stressors - life, love, divorce, work relationships, deadlines, weddings, funerals and 3. Chemical stressors - what we put into our bodies in the form of food, alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, and even vitamin supplementation.
Recognize that all these things are working within our system. Chiropractic provides an approach to suggest that if the nervous system is in charge of all these things and if it is in some way irritated or improperly functioning then it is the chiropractor’s responsibility to find the source and area in the nervous system where things are irritated.An adjustment will restore the proper structure of the body to allow the function to be expressed fully. We as chiropractors don't do any of the healing! The body heals itself when a facilitation has taken place to correct the area of dis–ease. Isn't that AMAZING? Some sites take longer to correct, depending on how long issues have been present, hence it generally takes more than one adjustment to correct things. I like to tell first-time clients that after their first adjustment we want one of two things... 1) improvement or 2) worsening! These two responses suggest that there is room for improvement and the body made attempts at a correction. Indifference or no change suggests long-term irritation and it may take much longer to correct an area! It's important to have a great working relationship with your chiropractor for optimal awareness of what's going on. The chiropractor’s role is to help you understand the intricacies of your body’s healing and help you in your way to better health, awareness, knowledge and well being!
If you have a spine, you will benefit from getting it checked by the experts that deal with the entire body inside and out! Find the source of the problem and make corrections so that you are able to be your very best self!!
Yours in great health!
