What’s better than trusting yourself again?

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on June 3, 2011

One of the great things about having had clients stick with me for over ten years is that you have the benefit of lots of feedback in little bits over a long time.  Instead of trying to fill out some form with objective data at the end of a care plan, you get to hear how chiropractic has affected people’s lives in real time and in real ways.

One of the things I hear all the time from folks that have been with me for a long time is “You know, since I’ve been getting adjusted, I seem to know when things aren’t right.”  Another thing I love to hear is “I feel better about asking my doctor questions these days.  I wouldn’t have done that before.”

I wish that more people knew what chiropractic really is.  Obviously, lots of folks (maybe most) think it’s a drug-free, non-surgical approach to correcting chronic back pain.  Sure, it works for that.  But really, chiropractic is first a philosophy.  A philosophy whose premise is that all things are organized, whether living or inorganic.  In living things that organization is responsible for keeping you healthy and performing at your maximum potential.  Watching that principle play out in my life and the lives of those who use my service is one of the most awe inspiring experiences in my life.  The philosophy of chiropractic is “Why” we do what we do.

Chiropractic is also a science.  As such, we understands how it works.  We know that that organization I just mentioned flows over the nervous system and that any interference or disruption in how the body and brain communicate will affect how your body functions.  We call that a state of dis-ease.  If that communication is allowed to persist, eventually dysfunction can become disease that eventually leads to symptoms and death.  The science of chiropractic is “What” we do.

Chiropractic is also an art.  Every practitioner has their own way of expressing the art of chiropractic.  It’s our technique and mental approach to what we do.  It’s the “How” of what we do.

My kind of chiropractor is most concerned that you understand your body.  I want you to KNOW that you were designed perfectly and capable of adapting to most of life’s challenges.  And mostly, I want you to trust your instincts.  After all, “What’s better than trusting yourself again?”

The Spiritual Nature of Chiropractic

Posted by Marietta chiropractor on April 17, 2010

Chiropractors have always been accused of being “different”.  In fact, as a profession we ARE different!  It’s that difference that makes chiropractic special and one reason why I chose to be a chiropractor.  And, that’s why many have chosen this as both their profession and Profession.  It’s also why so many people are choosing it as their path to health and happiness.  Let me explain.

There is a spiritual aspect to chiropractic that many in the profession would like to ignore.  Fortunately for you (and unfortunately for them) chiropractic has such strong spiritual roots that that connection can NEVER be erased.  And really, it is THAT spiritual root that makes chiropractic a natural choice for many in how they pursue their own health and vitality.

The very first premise of chiropractic is that “There is a Universal Intelligence in all matter that gives to it its properties and maintains it in existence.”  In other words, everything in the Universe is organized intelligently.  Further, that organizing force is in all living things, including us humans!  We chiropractors call that organizing force in living things Innate Intelligence. The job of Innate Intelligence is to help all living things not only cope with and adapt to its environment but to thrive and seek its greatest potential.

Some people use these terms interchangeably with God, Spirit, Creator, etc.  I don’t. I choose to neither personify nor deify those entities but to accept them as evidence that there WAS and IS a Creative Force that animates all life and enables it to thrive in harmony with and despite its environment at the same time.

But, the root premise of chiropractic is that YOU are part of something much bigger than the sum of your parts.  You are an expression of that Creative Force!  And when you are living at YOUR own potential, you are as great and healthy and vibrant as any other human being on the planet.  When you are at your potential, you exude an energy that draws people, resources and solutions to you like a magnet.   The ultimate goal of the chiropractor is to remove a physical blockage to the fullest expression of that Innate potential inside you.

The last and greatest of God’s Creation was Mankind.  To finish His Creation he breathed Life into Man and then rested and said “It is good”.  The Book says that we are EACH made in the likeness and image of the Creator of the Universe.  Is that weak, sick, ignorant and fearful?  NO!  You were made to be strong, vibrant, creative, healthy and full of joy. the chiropractor’s job is to help you reconnect with your Greatest Potential.
