Mt Eden Chiropractic’s top 8 reasons to get your spine checked today!

Your quality of life depends on a healthy spine

How you take care of yourself today – will have an impact on how healthy you are in the future. If you want to be healthy and active as you age, your spine and nervous system must be healthy.

Nerve pressure can exist without pain

According to the research, pain is not a good indicator of how healthy or unhealthy your spine and nervous system are. Spinal examinations such as posture, weight balance, palpation, muscle testing, computer scans and x-rays are much better indicators. Pain is usually the last to show up and the first to be relieved when you begin chiropractic care.

Nerves supply your whole body

Your spine protects your nerve system, the master control centre of your body. Vital energy flows over your nerves and communicates with every cell. Nerve pathways must be clear for the messages to get through. If you have an uncorrected spinal problem, it can cause a decrease in the function of vital organs and systems, and lead to unnecessary pain or health problems.

Deterioration can begin within 2 weeks

Researchers found that when the spine is misaligned it can begin to deteriorate within 2 weeks. Think about how many two weeks have passed since you were born, which is often when the first spinal injury or vertebral subluxation occurs. How many two weeks are there from a childhood fall to age 50? Is it any wonder why more than 15 million people are diagnosed with osteoarthritis each year? Don’t wait another 2 weeks for a chiropractic checkup.

Eat, Drink, Move, Think

All of these things have an effect on the way your body functions. Subluxations are caused when your body cannot adapt to what you are eating (high sugar, processed foods), drinking (caffeine, fizzy, not enough water), how you are moving (bad posture, lack of exercise, sitting at a desk) and what you are thinking (emotional stress, relationship stress, work pressure)

If you wear out your body – where will you live?

Over time, your spine and nervous system can deteriorate, not because of age, but because of subluxations. Just like the tyres on your car wear down unevenly when they are misaligned, the same can happen in your spine. You may have some areas in your spine that look and feel like they are 80 years old while you have other areas that are more like a 30 year old. It’s never too late to start taking care of your spine and nervous system with regular Chiropractic Lifestyle Care.

You can’t afford to be less than your best

Now more than ever, you cannot afford to get sick. Crisis medical care costs can be astronomical not to mention time off work, play and family. An unhealthy spine and nervous system can be the cause of many problems. Getting your spine checked and adjusted regularly, not only helps you stay healthier, but can save you time and money in the long run.

Health is an action

Being healthy requires your time, energy and resources. Too many people wait until their body is breaking down before they make their health a priority. This is too late! Don’t let this happen to you or the people you love and care about.
