It may be believed that when people have no signs of pain or symptoms, all is well in their body’s function and quality of life. The problem with feeling good is that it can be a poor yardstick to measure your wellbeing.

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines human health as “a state of complete physical, mental, and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

How well your body functions is based on more than the absence of disease or symptoms. Let’s change our approach from defense to offense in the realm of wellbeing.

A defensive approach to wellbeing is to wait until our physiology breaks down and impacts our daily life, then seek a course of action to correct the damage.

An offensive approach is not waiting until you notice you’re not feeling good to invest into your wellbeing, but instead, making proactive choices that will increase your quality of life from the inside out.

This proactive method to investing in yourself can be in the form of exercise, nutrition, sleep or health care in general. Maintaining and achieving optimal health from within is an ongoing process, which means you must constantly water the garden in order for the vegetation to thrive.

Did you know that you can incorporate regular chiropractic care into your proactive wellness lifestyle to help raise your quality of living?

Your spinal integrity influences your body’s ability to function in a state of complete physical, mental, and social wellbeing.

Chiropractic is concerned with the integrity of the spinal joints so the bones that house and protect the vital neurological communication throughout your entire body can be transmitted from the brain to the body without interference. When dysfunction is located within the spine due to vertebral subluxation, the communication is less than optimal between the brain and body.

A specific chiropractic adjustment can help restore proper relationship within the joint and surrounding tissue. This can help reconnect and enhance the innate recuperative power of the body to heal itself due to the emphasis on the relationship between structure and function that is coordinated by the neurological system.

Play offense when it comes to your wellbeing by finding a chiropractor who can make the professional recommendations on how you can benefit from raising your quality of life, one adjustment at a time!

Research and scientific evidence does not establish a cause and effect relationship between chiropractic care and the occurrence of stroke; rather studies indicate that people may be consulting chiropractors when they are in the early states of a stroke. In essence, there is a stroke already in process. However, you are being informed of this reported risk.
