“Nothing happens until something moves.” - Albert Einstein
Motion is life.
Movement is a vital nutrient to your body, just as much as water or oxygen.
It feeds the a part of the brain called the cerebellum, producing essential nutrient stimulation (called “proprioception”).
It’s also a foundational reason why chiropractors adjust the spine – to restore normal motion to joints, communication through nerves, and subsequently, coordination throughout your entire body.
When your spine is not moving adequately, it begins to decay and ultimately, becomes inflamed.
The spinal joints begin to send stress signals to the brain that can lead to stress hormones being released (not good, this accelerates aging, etc.).
This “motion “deficiency” results in a decrease in proprioceptive messages being sent to your brain.
This often leads to pain.
This is why a healthy, properly moving, aligned spine is so essential to our health. By restoring motion to the spine (via the chiropractic adjustment), changes will begin to occur, such as: decrease in stress signals and stress hormones, decrease inflammation, and pain will subside.
Are you moving properly?
This is why we often see patients who will have significant changes in their health, in areas that they were not expecting at all (digestion, sleep, etc…) when they began care. By restoring motion and removing dysfunction to the body – you can begin to function how you were designed to.
