How to Achieve Wellness
Chiropractic is based on removal of nerve interference from the spine. Spinal adjustments remove this nerve interference allowing your nervous system to function at its optimum. Chiropractors are trained to detect and correct vertebral subluxations. A subluxation is a misaligned or stuck vertebra. Subluxations interfere with the nervous system's ability to either send or receive signals to and from the brain. The nervous system is vital to your function. In fact virtually every function in the body is a result of your nervous system. Your nervous system allows our 100 trillion cells to function in harmony!
We educate our practice members that health and healing come from within, not from outside sources. For example, we have been trained to think that when we experience a symptom we need to cover it up with a pill or surgery. While these treatments may alleviate symptoms, that is all they do. In other words they do not treat the cause of why you have symptoms. At VFC we educate our patients that by allowing your nervous system (master controller of your body) to function properly with regular chiropractic care, and through lifestyle modifications, anyone can achieve wellness.
Stress comes in three main forms:
1. Chemical (what goes into your body)
2. Physical (what you do with your body)
3. Emotional (your attitude about life).
When any of these stresses overwhelm your body, it harms your health. The foundation to a healthy lifestyle is keeping stressors to a minimum and increasing your ability to adapt to them.
