Chiropractic and the Road to Wellness
Chiropractic’s role within the medical world
B.J. Palmer, known as the, “Developer,” of chiropractic theory once said, “Medicine is the study of disease and what causes man to die. Chiropractic is the study of health and what causes man to live.” This should not be interpreted as a criticism of Western medicine. As we see it at Family Chiropractic and Natural Healing Center, the two can serve complimentary purposes. Chiropractic’s role is in wellness, and a great part of wellness is prevention. At our office in Milpitas, we focus on designing wellness solutions that help you maximize your body’s innate healing capacities and regulate the nervous system in order to prevent illness and pain.
Your body is strong and we should attempt to maintain this strength.
The human body craves alignment: when our spines are properly aligned, the weight of the upper body is distributed evenly between the structures and muscles of your entire body. With correct spinal alignment, your body does not need to strain itself to perform everyday functions. Thus, maintaining the alignment of your spine through regular chiropractic adjustment is an integral part of any preventative medicine plan.
There is no such thing as a spine transplant
Furthermore, spinal surgeries are massive undertakings with no certainty for success. The most logical way to save yourself pain, money and time is to start taking care of your spine today. At our office in Milpitas, we want to help you take the health of your spine into your own hands, no matter the vantage (or disadvantage) point from which you are starting.
Your spine as a focal point of wellness
Prevention is the greatest gift we can give ourselves. Spinal adjustment optimizes the function of the nervous system, realigns the spine, alleviates painful nerve compression and improves range of motion in the spinal joints. This allows you to feel better and move more freely throughout the day.
