Am I Subluxated?
Before the question can be answered we must first look at how the human body works. Each and every one of us is born with a body that is intelligent. From the time we were conceived our bodies have known what to do. The Intelligence within us knows exactly what we need at any given time. It is constantly striving to keep us alive. It keeps our hearts beating and our lungs breathing. If you were to get a cut on your arm, your body would heal it. If a virus finds its way into your body, your body takes steps to get rid of it. Your body is smart! It is so smart that right after you were conceived your Intelligence created a way for the body to communicate. The first organ formed, the organ that controls all others, is your NERVOUS SYSTEM!
Your nervous system helps control every organ and tissue in your body. From your heart to your lungs to your muscles, your nervous system controls it all! To protect this important system your super-intelligent body created a series of movable bones to protect it. It created your spine. Your spine is made up of 24 movable bones meant to protect your spinal cord and allow for motion. When under stress these bones can get stuck out of place ultimately pinching or irritating the very nerves they are meant to protect. The very same nerves that control the organs and tissues of your body! When this happens it is what we call VERTEBRAL SUBLUXATION. This is what Chiropractors deal with. A study from SPINE magazine from 1999 showed that the pressure of just the weight of a coin on the nerve interferes with the message the nerve sends by up to 60%!* If the body can't use the nerves that go to the low back to send the right message do you think it can cause the low back to stop functioning correctly leading to low back pain? ABSOLUTELY! What about if the nerves that go to your lungs are interfered with? Would it cause your lungs to stop functioning the way the are supposed to? YOU BET! Subluxations have the capability to interfere with any organ or tissue in your body causing your body to become sick and interfering with your quality of life!
So how can you tell if you are subluxated? The problem is that this can happen without us even realizing it. The part of your nerves that you can feel with, the part that feels pain is only 8-10% of your nerves** The rest control all the organs and all the muscles in your body. So you can be subluxated without even knowing it!! The best way to find out is to go to a qualified Chiropractor who is trained to specifically find these subluxations and help to remove the interference to your nervous system so you can FUNCTION better and live life to your fullest potential.
