Traditionally, chiropractic was based on the relationship of the normal and abnormal alignment of the spine to health and disease. But modern chiropractic is concerned with much more. We have learned that spinal health is inextricably related to functions of the body’s muscles, organ and acupuncture circuits, and also to nutrition, diet, exercise and emotional states. Our chiropractic is a naturally-oriented, holistic system of health care concerned both with wellness as well as the treatment of health problems.
Your body’s nervous system is like an electrical system with many different circuits. Each muscle is on a different circuit. Also, each circuit is related to a different gland or organ, nutrient(s), one or more vertebrae, and various “circuit breakers” relating to blood circulation, lymph drainage and the acupuncture system. When there’s a malfunction of any of these factors, it shows up as a change in the strength of the related muscle. i.e. if the body contains a “short circuit”, it will show up as weak when muscle tested. This is a means of identifying problems before they develop full blown symptoms.
Muscle weaknesses are often found to be related to nutritional imbalances, allergies, inefficient functioning of the digestive system or glandular system, toxic accumulation of heavy metals in tissues, etc. By correcting these imbalances through the variety of natural methods used in our office, the recurrence of muscle weakness usually abates along with a variety of different symptoms.
