Thousands of people in Fort Walton Beach and Mary Esther Florida are suffering with pain and disease on a daily basis, but have sadly grown accustomed to feeling subpar.
Whether it’s over-the-counter drugs, prescription medication, or a variety of rituals to avoid feeling worse, most people have surrendered to the notion that sickness and pain is a “normal” part of aging… and that vitality and energy is something that young people have the privilege of enjoying.
Think back to when you were younger… to a time when you were energetic, upbeat, and full of vitality. Then for some reason gradually your health started to spiral down the drain. A headache here, a back pain there, and eventually within a year acid reflux started becoming a “thing” for you. A few months later, allergies started to hit you hard. And a few months after that, you noticed lack of energy and fatigue on a daily basis.
It’s not unusual for people to start accumulating health problems, and forgetting just how great their body used to feel. But by ignoring declining health, numbing symptoms, or trying to “man up” and push through pain and fatigue, nothing is going to improve; as a matter of fact, things will become worse.
So What Went Wrong?
Most people have slipped and fell at one point in their lives. Most people have been in a fender bender or car wreck at one point in their lives. Most people have played backyard sports or organized sports at one point in their lives. Most people have laid down sideways on the couch to watch TV, looked down to check text messages for a prolonged period of time, or sit behind their computers with their head in a forward position at one point in their lives. Most people have a tendency to pick up a child, a box, or a grocery bag on one side at one point in their lives.
The point is, that all these scenarios have gradually affected your spine and your nervous system.
Extensive research over the past few decades in medical and chiropractic journals, have shown a direct correlation between one’s nervous system, and his or her overall wellness. Read that sentence again. There is a DIRECT correlation between the health of your nervous system, and your overall health.
How Does The Spine Affect Your Health?
Every cell, organ, and limb in the body relies on nerve energy to function. From cardiovascular function, digestion, and reproduction, to limb movement and everything else in between, uninterrupted nerve energy is essential in keeping the body performing like a well-oiled machine.
But poor postural habits, auto or workplace accidents, or sports injuries gradually (or sometimes suddenly) shift the spine out of alignment, exerting persistent pressure on the delicate nerves carrying nerve energy to the body. Through time, a small discomfort in the neck or back, can turn into a debilitating condition affecting your overall health and the function of your vital organs.
Unfortunately since back or neck pain isn’t always the first symptom of spinal misalignment, most people don’t consider seeing a chiropractor for their ailments. Instead, they resort to a doctor’s office to get medication or talk about risky surgery.
Corrective Chiropractic Care to The Rescue
The job of a corrective care chiropractor, like Dr. Shawn Leatherman of Integrity Chiropractic in Fort Walton Beach / Mary Esther Florida, is to pinpoint the areas of subluxation (spinal misalignment) that have led to the patient’s health problems. Then through the Chiropractic BioPhysics technique, realign the spine back to health, and therefore restore nerve flow back to the limbs and organs.
Patients under the care of a CBP chiropractor, notice an almost immediate improvement in their symptoms – whether its back or neck pain, headaches, or migraines. Within weeks after the spinal rehabilitation has begun, ailments such as acid reflux, high blood pressure, asthma, digestive issues, fatigue, and even fibromyalgia begin to improve dramatically.
Remember, spinal misalignments may show no sign or symptom for some time, so just because you have no back pain or neck pain after an accident or sports injury, doesn’t mean your nervous system isn’t affected.
