For all but the most serious injuries and diseases, your body has the innate ability to heal itself
Our bodies are amazing and complex structures which contain self-repair mechanisms that keep us functioning day-to-day. Among these mechanisms, our bodies negate cancer cells that are produced, fight off infection, rebuild and repair broken proteins, heal injuries and fight aging to the best of their ability. Because they do so much without our conscious aid, it is important that we help maintain a high level of physical and nutritional support where we can. Chiropractic is an integral part of maintaining this support; read on to find out how.
Chiropractic for maintaining the body’s self-healing mechanisms
Chiropractic is part of a holistic approach to wellness that seeks to maintain the health of your body without the necessity for drugs or surgical intervention. In all but the most serious conditions or injury that cause you pain, the body has a fair chance of resolving the issue by itself, as long as proper attention is given to the underlying cause. This means that a proper diagnosis of the cause of your dysfunction is of utmost importance. Once this has been established, we focus on providing you with chiropractic care including chiropractic adjustment and mobilization, as well as other modalities when deemed appropriate.
- Determine the underlying cause
- Deal with the cause rather than the symptom
- Give your body a chance to heal: this signifies the appropriate amount of time and rest to be observed after injury, as well as proper attention to an exercise and stretching regime that may take place over the course of months to the rest of your life depending on the severity of injury.
Chiropractic adjustments help the body heal itself in Houston
Chiropractic adjustments are an important part of boosting your body’s natural ability to heal itself because it facilitates communication between brain and body, along the spinal cord. Misalignment in the spine is linked to poor functioning in many important organs of the body involved in healing. Chiropractic adjustments restore alignment to the spine, facilitating smooth communication between brain and body and increasing blood flow which brings oxygen and nutrients to an injurious region.
