What is Spinal Alignment?
Article by Chiropractor Bay Street Port Melbourne
"Chiro" means hand and "Practic" means to do. Therefore, the healing art of Chiropractic is performed by laying hands on the body, concentrating on the spine, and applying gentle forces into areas of blocked energy.
Chiropractic is a philosophy, a way of life. It is based on a truth. If you can understand gravity, the tides, or even the fact that the sun rises in the east every morning and sets in the west every night, then you can understand the principles of Chiropractic.
The bones of the spine, protect the spinal cord, can misalign through countless physical, mental and chemical challenges and interfere with the transmission and expression of this intelligence. This misalignment is called a Subluxation are caused by the body's inability to adapt to its environment. When these “subluxations” occur, our bodies can’t adapt, heal or perform at their best
The goal is union through caring for the wholeness of a human. Chiropractors honor that innate ability to heal by assisting in the release of Subluxations. This allows full healing energy to bathe every cell of the body and begin the process of bringing a deviated expression of life back to balance.
The purpose of chiropractic care is to optimize the function of the nervous system, which controls the function of every cell, tissue and organ in your body.
Most people think that if they’re not hurting, then their bodies are fine. Actually, only 10% of the nervous system perceives pain, and it’s almost always the last indicator of more serious health problems. Good health is about function, and when our nervous systems aren’t working properly, it can cause devastating effects.
