Our Philosopy/Your Spine and Body/Restoring Your Health
It's our philosophy that all people have the potential to heal. Given the correct healing conditions are working in the body, the body can and will heal itself. Chiropractic care is based on the priciple that "the power that made the body heals the body". What this means is that inside of the body there is an "innate intelligence" that directs all of the body's functions. When the body is healthy it will resolve most of it's pain and problems on it's own. However, due to many of the unhealthy things we do to our body throughout life, the body's ability to heal itself can diminish, allowing pain, injury and illness to set in. It is our goal to help your body start functioning at it's highest possible level, so it can heal effectively, and function at it's best for years to come.
Your Spine and Body
So vital to your proper healing and functioning is the relationship of the spine to the body. The spine serves many functions such as: being the central weight bearing structure of the body, the protector of the spinal cord and nerves, the shock absorber of the body, and the relay center between the body and the brain.
Over time, due to physical demands, stress, and improper nutrition the spine can suffer, leading to the development of what is called "Spinal Subluxations". Subluxations are misalignments of the spine that cause pressure on the nerves connecting the body and brain. When subluxations are present in the spine, the following problems may occur....compare the healthy spine on the left to the unhealthy one on the right:
When most people are experiencing pain, injury, or illness, then likely their spine contains subluxations. When subluxations are left untreated the body's ability to heal is compromised. In particular, the nervous system which connects the body to the brain is affected the most. When signals traveling along the nervous system are interfered with, the communication between the body and brain shuts down, and problems will set in. Check out this diagram explaining how subluxations affect the nervous system's communication between brain and body, compare the healthy loop on the left to the unhealthy one of the right:
Restoring Your Health
In order to get your body healthy again, it is vital to resolve the spinal subluxations. Through the chiropractic "adjustment", subluxations are addressed in the spine. The chiropractic adjustment is a proven safe and effective method that allows for the reduction of subluxations, and increased ability of the nervous system to heal pain, stress, and injury.
At Ghessi Chiropractic we specialize in gentle adjustment techniques that allow the spine and nervous system to function at their best. Experience less pain, stress and injury in your life.
