Chiropractic is Restoration

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on March 8, 2014

It can be difficult explaining to folks just what Chiropractic is REALLY about.  I know.  Some (most) folks think my profession is about fixing back pain, neck pain and headaches.  And, that IS a pretty easy thing in many cases for the chiropractor.  However, just because that’s what most chiropractors do, it doesn’t mean that’s what Chiropractic is or can do. Let me explain.

Chiropractic is restoration.

I love watching TV shows about restoring old cars.  You know, the one where they go out and find a 40-50 year old muscle car and bring it back to life.  Well, there’s a process there.  Once the car is in the shop, the car must be stripped down to its bare essentials, old parts replaced, weak spots must be strengthened and the car repainted.  Eventually, the car looks brand new and in many cases runs like brand new.  But if done right, the car maintains its original character.  A 50 year old muscle car might not be able to keep up with some of today’s smaller, lighter (even faster) imports.  But, who cares.

Your body is very much the same way.

Life and time can take a toll on your body.  And if you’ve had a chiropractic problem (vertebral subluxation affecting your nerve supply) for any length of time, you can feel like your body is rusting (or has rusted) away.  When the chiropractic problem has been corrected, the body begins to more effectively do its job of removing damaged and under-performing parts and tissues.  It’s always doing that, anyway.  It just does it better without nerve interference.

Eventually, damaged tissue is replaced with normal tissue.  Normal function is restored and the quality of your life is restored.  AND just like with restoring the old car, the process takes time and patience.  The job simply has to be done in a programmed manner.  Otherwise, rushing has its own risks and consequences.

So, if your body (and/or life) is not what you think it could be, maybe it’s time to find what is called a Principled chiropractor.  They’re the ones that ONLY adjust the spine with the specific goal of removing nerve interference (vertebral subluxation) so your body can return to normal function.  If you need help finding one in your area, let me know.

I’d love for you to move toward restoration as soon as possible.
