Imagine your body like a bucket: everyone has different bodies with a variety of shapes, sizes and capacity.

Your wellbeing is housed inside your bucket. Your body can stay full of wellbeing with both inborn recuperative powers, and the positive choices you make. These factors can be viewed in the form of a faucet that replenishes your body and fills your bucket.

When you choose to be proactive in filling your bucket, it can be in the form of things like eating well, getting adequate exercise and rest, or having a positive mental attitude. When you do this, your bucket will move toward fullness due to a steady flow of water that comes from the faucet. Your choices determine the pressure of water flow of the faucet.

When you choose to do less than what’s necessary to fill your bucket, the contents within your bucket may lower due to life’s demands and stressors. The faucet may still be dripping in more wellbeing, but the pressure of the water flow is not as strong as it could be to keep your bucket full.

Multiple factors contribute to filling up your bucket, for example, just eating well and ignoring your movement or sleep will make it difficult to fill up your wellbeing bucket.

There’s also a problem with our wellbeing bucket: it leaks!

Your bucket may leak at the rate at which your proactive choices overflow the bucket when it becomes full, or at the rate stressors exceed the replenishing drip from the faucet.

The key is to add to the bucket before signs that the water is low. For example, waiting until we are thirsty to drink water. When you feel thirsty, it’s a sign that you’re already dehydrated.

Similarly, don’t wait for your bucket to be low on wellbeing before you ensure your faucet is refilling to its capacity.

When the levels of wellbeing are low in your bucket, it lowers your ability to adapt to life’s demands. Depending upon the size of your bucket and its capacity, content levels will affect your bucket differently.

Chiropractic can help replenish your bucket due to the relationship between structure and function that is coordinated by the neurological system. Your neurological system is the primary tool that allows your body’s innate recuperative forces to restore harmony within your body. Chiropractic is concerned with the integrity of the spinal joints that structurally house and protect the neurological system between the brain and the body.

A specific chiropractic adjustment can help restore proper structural relationship within the spinal joints which allows your body’s innate recuperative forces to function in harmony. This can help keep your faucet open and refilling your bucket.

Help keep your leaky bucket at its fullest with regular chiropractic care!

Directly consult with a qualified health care professional for any chiropractic or medical advice. In addition to the benefits of chiropractic care, one should also be aware of the existence of some risks. Risks associated with some chiropractic care may include soreness, musculoskeletal sprain/strain, and fracture. In addition, there have been reported cases of stroke associated with chiropractic care. 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.
