The Dow of Healing

Posted: October 1, 2019
By: The Weekly Sticky

Healing is like the stock market. It never progresses in a straight line. You’ve got to expect some ups and downs along the way.

You might experience a surge of relief when you first start your chiropractic care only to be followed by a “setback”. Soon you’re back on track, seeing huge improvements. Progress continues with bouts of highs and lows, and you may even experience a plateau or dip in your improvements. But don’t make the mistake of “pulling out of the market” early.

Keep the big picture in mind. Like stocks, the gains in chiropractic care are best seen over time. When you look back and see how far you’ve come since your first visit, you’ll realize the LIFE dividends are paying off! 

That’s why it’s so important that even though you are experiencing an up in your health you still get in to see Dr. Rini regularly. So he can help keep your health on the upswing, and decrease your downswings to fewer and far in between!


Chiropractic Colored Glasses

What does the world look like through Chiropractic colored glasses? Does your health shine brighter… are your relationships with friends and family more in focus… is your job performance sharper and crisper?

You “see” everything through your nerve system – how you feel, how you interact with the people around you, how you perform at home or at work. When your nerves are stressed, the line between barely existing and fully living is blurred. However, the more clear your nerve system, the better your ability to interact physically, mentally and spiritually with the world around you; and ultimately the better your quality of life!

When a Chiropractor adjusts the stress from your nerve system, it’s like cleaning the dirt, streaks and smudges from the lens through which you interpret your world – and with a clear lens you can see all your potential. So get in to see Dr. Rini for an adjustment this week because life is more vibrant when you’re viewing it through Chiropractic glasses!


Soaking up Stress

Your nerve system is the ultimate sponge, soaking up all the experiences, sensations and stresses you encounter every day. Like a sponge, it can only absorb so much before it becomes over-saturated and spills stress into your body. The result… PAIN, SICKNESS and WEAK PERFORMANCE!

The best thing you can do to prevent nerve system over saturation is to get checked by your Chiropractor regularly and adjusted when necessary. Adjustments gently “wring out” accumulated tension in your nerve system before it has a chance to build up and affect your health negatively.

If you’re feeling super-soaked from the stress of life, bring your saturated nerves to Dr. Rini for some TLC! You’ll experience more energy, improved sleep and a better overall feeling of wellness if you do.


Avoiding the Train Wreck

Medical preventative care focuses mainly on the early detection and treatment of disease. Their thinking – if you catch a condition in its earliest stage (i.e. breast cancer or diabetes), you have a better chance of managing it. Although that rationale bears some truth, it leaves you waiting for the train wreck to happen before you can do anything about it.

In Chiropractic, care focuses on supporting the ONE system dedicated to preserving the health of your whole body, your spine and nerve system. Because all normal body functions are first patterned in your nerve system, so must “dis-ease” be patterned in your nerves system (subluxation) before it develops into an illness. It simply makes more sense to avoid the train wreck in your spine, before it manifests in your body.

The best prevention doesn’t simply “test and wait” until you develop the disease… it focuses on removing the cause before it has a chance to manifest. That begins with interference in your nerve system. Are your loved ones protecting their health with regular chiropractic care?


Chiro-Jenga

If life was a game of Jenga, stress would be the act of sliding out one puzzle pieced after another, until your entire “tower of health” topples over!

Unexpected car repair bill – slide out a block. Emergency call from your kid’s school nurse – slide out another one. Slip down a few stairs – slide out three more. Before you know it, you’re one stress event away from major Jenga catastrophe… that is, unless your chiropractor reverses the momentum and adjusts those loose blocks back in, restoring stability and integrity to your health!

Stress can cause you to subluxate (misalign), and its effects are detrimental to your overall health! So don’t wait until your last Jenga stress block is pulled before seeking help. It’s far easier to keep your body standing strong with preventative chiropractic care, than to rebuild it after the collapse.


Rights and Responsibilities

Posted: July 3, 2019

You’re no doubt familiar with the basic human rights penned by Thomas Jefferson. Our Creator did indeed bless us with life, freedom, and the ability to pursue happiness. But when it comes to your healthcare, it’s important not to confuse rights with responsibilities. For example,

 

·         While you have the RIGHT to eat at any restaurant that suits your taste – you are RESPONSIBLE for choosing healthy items on the menu to fuel your body properly.

·         While you have the RIGHT to sit on the couch and binge watch Netflix all day – you are RESPONSIBLE for exercising regularly, so your body doesn’t become lethargic and sickly.

·         While you have the RIGHT to go bungee jumping, ride roller coasters or take up cage fighting – you are RESPONSIBLE for keeping your spine in alignment (free of subluxation interference), so your nerve system can clearly orchestrate all the physiological processes needed to keep you alive.

 

Yes we all have the unalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. But only YOU can be held responsible for preserving and maintaining your health! Yes, your Creator gave you the breath of life, a body and an innate intelligence to govern them all. But it’s up to YOU – not your insurance company, your primary physician or your political party – to guard them well!


Unwind with Chiropractic

Ever feel “wound up” from the stresses of life? You feel tight and distorted, like a rubber band that’s been twisted to the brink of snapping? That tension you’re feeling isn’t in your head… it’s actually in your nerve system!

Physical, chemical and emotional stresses of life can wind up negative energy in your nerve system, gradually throwing your spine and your health out of balance. Chiropractors refer to this as being in a “subluxated state.” If this pent up nerve stress isn’t released, it builds silently until it ultimately manifests as a physical illness in your body. The solution… release the tension in the rubber band before it breaks.

Chiropractic care gently removes stress from your spine and spinal cord before a critical failure can occur. In doing so, you improve the odds of your body working to its potential over the course of your life. This is one “rubber band” you need to keep untangled!


Wash Me

What would happen if you didn’t clean your house for a few weeks? Your furniture would get pretty dusty wouldn’t it? The same can be said for you, if the dirt in your nerve system isn’t cleaned up on a regular basis!

The “dirt” we’re talking about is Vertebral Subluxation (a Chiropractic term for nerve interference). If not cleared regularly, stress from subluxations can pile up in your nerves, causing sleep disturbances, chronic fatigue, lowered resistance, persistent pain or even anxiety.

People who keep their nerve system “tidy” with regular chiropractic care report having more energy, better recovery from injuries and an improved state of mind. If your health isn’t as clean as you’d like it to be, maybe it’s time to dust the stress off with a good adjustment. Call us today to schedule your next appointment!


The Right Key

Posted: June 4, 2019

You’ve tried stretching, went to physical therapy and faithfully did all the exercises they prescribed. But still your spine feels tight, rigid and locked up. In your case, Chiropractic may hold the right key!

Unlike the gross manipulative therapy done by PT’s and osteopaths, or the general movement offered by prescribed exercises, specific Chiropractic adjustments ONLY target the parts of your spine that need work. Specificity is the key to results – knowing what spinal segments to move, when to move them and how much force to use is paramount to getting a favorable outcome… and that requires a skill set taught only in a reputable Chiropractic College.

You wouldn’t use a sledge hammer to bust open your front door if the right key wasn’t handy to unlock it safely. The same goes for your spine. When it comes to unlocking a tough, painful back it’s best to seek the advice of a master spinal locksmith (a DC) who know what they’re doing. In the long run you’ll save time, money and frustration hiring the right person for the job!


No Cramming in Chiropractic

Remember the days of pulling an “all nighter” for a major exam – trying to cram an entire semester’s worth of work in one, non-stop studying marathon? Well, you can’t get away with that when it comes to your health and chiropractic!

There are some who wish they could simply go to the chiropractor and have years of aches, pains and health issues erased in just one cram session – a chiropractic all nighter if you will. But like cramming for a test, a quick chiropractic patch job is temporary at best. Last minute adjustments for long standing problems will always yield fleeting results. It takes sustained, consistent care over time to make measurable changes to bad spines.

So if you think you can re-call a cervical lordosis or undo years of poor bio-mechanics with one 24 hour sleepless chiropractic binge, think again! There is no such thing as pulling an all nighter when it comes to getting your health and your spinal integrity back!

 

Chiropractically Yours,
